Summary

How far will you go to save someone you love? In Heavy Rain each player discovers their own answer to this question as they experience a gripping psychological thriller filled with innumerable twists and turns, where choices and actions can and do result in dramatic consequences. Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer - named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Even more chilling is the fiend's well established pattern of killing his victims four days after abducting them. The public is gripped with fear as the police seem powerless to stop the carnage, and another potential victim — Shaun Mars — has gone missing. Now four characters, each following their own leads and with their own motives, must take part in a desperate attempt to prevent the killer from taking yet another life.

The beginning of interactive story game by Quantic Dream, [very] rough gameplay. At the beginning, you gotta shave (struggled a bit there). However, though, when in a quick react situation (press cursor in a direction, x, square, etc.) it gets interesting. The storyline drags its feet very heavily, in my opinion. Almost decided to stop playing the game at some points of the game AND it's not really compelling. Played Detroit Become Human before this, and it still much more way better than this. Real rusty gameplay, weak compelling-player-to-story, but holds some basic Quantic Dream story game mechanics.

Heavy Rain is truly a work of art that demands to be appreciated. Unfortunately like most art, you have to “get it” to really appreciate it. That being said, the game is not for everybody, and there will be plenty of people that just don’t “get it”. But, if you go into Heavy Rain with an open mind and the understanding that this isn’t your average video game, you will reap the reward of playing one of the most memorable video games of this console generation.

Heavy Rain is an admirably ambitious creation capable of engrossing the mind and engaging the emotions like few games that have gone before. Visually and aurally it's a decadent feast for the senses, but its frequent descents into ham-fisted schlock and downright broken storytelling ultimately make it a clumsy case of style over substance. It's a likeable mess if you don't think too hard, but nevertheless, a mess it remains.

Heavy Rain isn't something you play, it's something you experience. It's surprisingly subtle at times, genuinely terrifying at others, and even when it breaks, it's still outstanding. This is a game you're going to want to have played, because it's going to be talked about for many, many years to come. Whether it's as a groundbreaking moment for the medium, or as a bold experiment that didn't quite come to fruition, we'll have to wait and see, but I definitely hope it's the former.
