I've been looking through the lower reviews and some of you do not know what you are talking about. Heavy rain is one of the best games out there. It was meant to be an interactive movie. All of the things you do tie into the plot. Like the beginning, it shows what a happy life Ethan has. But later his life is terrible. Everything fits together perfectly. And for the person who played for 20 min you have to get farther for more action. So in my conclusion, Better than MW2, L4D2, and Uncharted 2.
Heavy Rain is a nail-biting, edge of your seat thriller. Fans of the movies Saw, and Se7en will surely have a great time playing / watching this story unfold. Everyone will play the game a little different than the person before you, with the chance of different out-comes, of situations, and endings. The possibilties are endless. I give this game a solid 9 and the only reason I didn't give it a ten would be for the fact, that 2 play throughs is about all it's good for. If I would of dropped 60 on this game and finished the first night like I did. I would of wanted my money back. But this is a great rental and I would recommend it to all my freinds. Enjoy, and get ready to get soaked.
The storyline is awesome and it keeps you on your toes. If your characters dies the story continues! But once you figure out who the killer is the only option you have is to redo past scenarios to get the other different endings.
