I have to say this game is different from your average game. It is very enjoyable the first time around, but once you're done with it the impact that it created is no longer there. I would still have to say this is a must play game but it is more of a rental rather than a must buy. Thanks to gamefly we can all save some cash and still get to play some of the highly talked games and choose to keep it afterward or return it and continue our journey. The game would get a 8 rating but trying to go for all the endings just started to seem like a bothersome chore. If you're deciding whether to play this game or not I would say give it a shot, it is a great game worth playing once, maybe even twice...but not worth buying or keeping.

Heavy Rain is not without its faults, and I'd rather get those out of the way first. Controlling the characters feels sloppy at times, facial expressions occasionally appear deadpan destroying the immersion, and the build up in the story is slow at first.
That being said, Heavy Rain is a game you definitely should rent. Essentially, it's like an interactive choose your own adventure novel with really good graphics. The story is interesting, and once you get rid of the annoying kids, the characters are well crafted.

after i finished the game i was left speechless. that is hard to do. the game has many ways to end the game. you might find out who it is and have all the characters alive, or you might not figure out who is the killer and wont save the boy. but remember this, if you die, that character is dead. but thats the fun in it, there are consiquences. if that happens, you just have to keep playing. thats all im writing about this. the final report basicly sums it up.
FR: just like the title says, must buy. if you like to see how the story unfolds this is still fun. if you dont like playing and like watching, this is for you. it is like any cop drama show thats on tv
