Heavy Rain is one of the best games that I have ever played. The storyline is amazing and really pulls you in to a point where you are emotionally attached to the characters. The controls are very different from most games (Heavy Rain is a very different game itself) but the first few levels provide a very good learning curve to help you and it becomes seem less very quick. The game offers three different difficulties but they only affect the controls where people who are not very familiar with the wireless controller can still easily enjoy the game. There have been some people who have had technical issues with this game (freezing, no audio, etc) I did not have any problems with the game but I also never downloaded the patch for the same since it is an offline game. This is a game that offers extremely high replay value for the many different routes you can take with the story and its characters. This game is a must play.

This game as you already know is purely cinematics. Cant stress that enough. if you are the type of gamer that cuts to the chase and skips passed the cut scenes of a game, this is definately not for you. As for the rest of you this game offers a very deep, methodical story, that keeps you interested and wanting to see what happens next. The game play starts out dull then becomes natural after the first few chapters. As you reach the ending the controls are just repetitive, useless and dull once again. The game was fun and worth the rent but when I was near the end I was just wanting it to be finished. Its a nice new genre, but I doubt it will catch on to well. I recomend the rent, but personally after I had finished I am glad i hadn't purchsed it, as it offers re-play to only the biggest of fans. I rate this game a 8.5 since it is a step in a new directiion... -P.S. PARENTS DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS RENT THIS GAME. IT CONTAINS VERY VULGAR LANGUAGE. FULL ON NUDITY AND A PLAYABLE INTENSE LOVE SCENE.....

This game is Incredible. This game syoryline of these four characters is overwhelming. The game is real good all I can say. These types of game are very rare to find. Quantic Dream and other developers need more game than just shooters. This can getrid of shooters any day. Game of the year contender. 10/10. P.s> Graphics out of this world.
