5.0 out of 5 stars PS3's true flagship July 5, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I bought my PS3 in 2010, this was the first game I purchased by recommendation. Just about every game I've purchased has been traded in at some point with the exception of this one. The story is amazing. The concept was something I've never seen before. Without spoiling anything, the scene involving the mall, the kid, and the car had 10 different people in the room with me crying. The game is very intense. For those that say the game is very short, I say you only did one play through. There are 17 different endings. I've played close to 100 hours of Heavy Rain and I have seen all the different endings. Once choice changes the entire outcome of the game. I have yet to use Move with it but I can imagine the awesome difficulty increase it brings. If I have to make a recommendation on any game for PS3, this game signifies what Sony set the PS3 out to be: Mature, Stunning Visuals, Mind-blowing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful don't pay over $30. December 14, 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Available from for $29.99 be wary of first listing. Game is QTE heavy and cinematic. Check the reviews for the standard version. This game is no different (and same price) but it does have extras including the DLC.

Director's Cut includes:
Original game, Taxidermist DLC, Musical Score, Move support, 8 making of videos, 3 dynamic themes, 15 pieces of concept art, two bonus trailers (via playstation blog).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, Saddest Games I've Ever Played! January 27, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In 2011, I bought a PS3 solely to play Heavy Rain, and it was worth the purchase! I've never played a game that has imbued me with such palpable sadness. It tugged at my heartstrings. The soundtrack is nothing short of memorable and melancholic and coheres with the tear-jerking story. From the opening chapter, I was instantly invested in the characters. By the time the opening credits rolled, I have already drawn my first tear. Ethan Mars, the main character, is a broken man, and you can't help but feel his misery and grief.

The graphics are brilliant and the storyline is very captivating. It's like you're watching a movie and as far as movies go, this is one of the best psychological thrillers I've ever seen! There are lots of twists and turns and the ending came as a surprise. I'm surprised Hollywood hasn't turned it into a movie.

This is a standout, interactive game that is unique in its gameplay. The story is slow-paced at the beginning, but then it picks up speed, so don't be put off by its slowness. You rotate between playing four different characters and each decision you make; whether you fail your mission or don't, affects the outcome of the story. Unlike other games, you don't die or re-spawn, and that's what makes this game unique. Characters CAN die, but the story goes on and there's nothing you can do to change the events. I found myself second-guessing the decisions I made throughout the game. It's a game that requires contemplation and it's quite intense.

You receive a tutorial at the very beginning, while doing mundane tasks such as taking a shower, changing your clothes, etc, in order to familiarize yourself with the controls. This game relies heavily on Quick Time Event. You either love the QTE or hate it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as much fun as I expected May 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Heavy Rain after years of indecision - it dropped to a price that I thought was reasonable so I stumped up the cash and waited with eager anticipation. I received the game on Thursday, and I finished it on Saturday. That's not to say that I played it constantly - I would estimate that I played it for less than 15 hours, and maybe as few as 10. If I had paid full price I would have been extremely disappointed, and even at $20 I'm not sure that I got my moneys worth.

Yes, you'll hear arguments about there being 17 different endings, however, those endings are 17 cutscenes that are strung together at game completion, depending on who lived or died during the game, as well as a couple of other choices you may have made - meaning that in any giving completion you'll see something like 5 of the 'endings'. I don't think it's worth playing through again simply to see a slightly different ending - the game is very linear with almost no deviation from the set story, so the gameplay experience will remain the same through each playthrough.

Stylistically the game is stunning and incredibly atmospheric - possibly one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played. At times you kind of believe that you're watching a film noir, but don't sit back and marvel in the beauty, as you may have to press a button at the right time mid movie.

This leads me to my major grumble about the game - the linearity of it; the passive role that you, the player, take for much of the game and the lack of decisions that you have to make. The challenge is not a cerebral one - there is no puzzle solving whatsoever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Rain, an interactive experience August 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Heavy rain is unlike any game I've ever played and an experience i will remember for years to come. Is it perfect? No. Is it unique? Yes. Is it worth my time and money? Yes, especially at the current price point.

In Heavy Rain, you play the role of four characters who seemingly have nothing in common. Your actions decide the fate of each of them. Unlike Mass Effect, the reprecussions aren't based simply on dialogue choices, but also on the timing of button presses. Most of the button presses are simple enough at the beginning, but the difficulty does ramp up as the story progresses.

Another difference is that there are no manual saves, so if you mess up, you have to live with the outcome (or start from the beginning). This adds to the realism, but can be frustrating at times, especially when you make the same mistake on the second playthrough. One redeeming point though is that if you miss a button, you're not doomed to failure, you'll usually get another try or two before the mistake costs you (or rather your character).

I've seen many reviews saying the characters are what you make of them and this makes it difficult to play through a second time. I didn't find this to be the case. I knew I made some bad choices the first time through, so as many do with Mass Effect, I played through several times, trying to get the perfect outcome. Unlike ME, decisions aren't marked as "paragon" or "renegade". There is a lot more moral gray area.

Anyone interested in compelling stories, should give Heavy Rain a try. However, if all you're looking for is a multiplayer shooter, you should probably look elsewhere.
