this is just what i thought it would be, a movie made for every one. people who love movies, people who love suspence, people who love game. the level of difficulty you play under can really change the game and its worth atleast two play througth get it inless you just love to run and gun, it may be a little slow for you
Interactive Dramatic Thriller.... not just a movie

Heavy Rain is a great game. For people who think it is just like a movie and there is no point in getting this game, you're wrong. The game's length for one is different. The game is about 20 times the length of a movie (depending on how you play it) which is around 40 hours. So you go find a movie that is that in-depth like Heavy Rain. Also, you basically are the director for the game. When has there ever been a movie that went exactly the way you wanted it to. That's right, never. You are engaged in it the whole time. There were some parts where I didn't think anything was going to happen but it turned out there was something. One flaw is that the writing is sometimes hard to read when you have to pick something to say but I might just not have a big enough tv. And the controls are wierd but the thing that stands out the most is the walking. Literally walking. You can't run, and you have to use R2. There is one more thing. You can count this as really bad or really good. It makes you feel way more attached than a movie ever could. Overall, I would give it a 9.3/10. Oh and just a warning. If you get a piece of paper inside besides the manual, don't fold it up. Wait for the prompting on-screen once you put it in unless you don't want the origami figure.
