This Game is AWESOME!!!! the story, the characters...evreything is just a good all around game. However i feel it does not deserve a 10 the game is kinda buggy, the music will skip a little bit during the game nothing too major. The controls are kind of weird but you should get use to them right away, and sometimes the camera angle can be a bit of a pain as well.

Now on to the good, great story line i like how you can choose to have all or none of your characters die, there is no GAME OVER or anything like that

This game reminds me of one of those "Choose Your Adventure" books and i highly recomend this game

I was really excited about this title. I was also expecting a heavily marketed title that didnt live to expectations. I was wrong on so many levels. Game looks amazing gameplay is good. I cant think of any complaints at all. Makes me glad that I own a PS3 . On a Side note if you liked Indigo Prophecy you will love this.

"Heavy Rain", the latest from Quantic Dream, is hard to describe. It's not a game in the usual sense, yet we control the characters' actions. It's not a movie, either, as it requires us to interact with the action on the screen. Maybe "interactive experience" works better, and this is a game that every PS3 owner should experience. That doesn't mean that everyone will love it- to be sure, some will downright hate it, and some, thinking it's just a bunch of QTE, will choose to ignore it. But this is a game that should not be ignored, as it is different from anything else on the PS3 (only Quantic's PS2 outing "Indigo Prophecy" comes close) and is a refreshing break from all the FPSs and hack-and-slash action titles flooding the market. The story follows four characters as their paths intertwine as each pursues the Origami Killer. The story is very much neo-noir with a hint of sci-fi thrown in. I won't spoil any details here, as it's better to uncover it for yourself. This game does pack an emotional wallop at points, and has its fair share of heart pumping action. But its quieter moments are equally important- those moments that flesh out the characters, helping us to connect in a way that's all too rare these days in games, to those moments of discovery that give you that OMG feeling. The graphics are outstanding here, with a majority of animations running smoothly. There is a learning curve to the controls, but once you get the hang of them they work fairly well. Decisions play an important part in how everything unfolds, and there is no "Game Over". There is only an alternate path, giving you the opportunity to return to the story to take the road you bypassed before. The game is not perfect- a glitch pops up here and there, controls can be a bit clumsy and overly complicated in spots, voice acting (mostly great) sometimes falls flat. But these are minor flaws compared to the overall package. Definitely try this one out. It's an experience not to be missed.
