Clunky controls, bad voice acting, and plot holes (there's one gaping plot hole that I won't say as it gives away a twist in the game).
The controls don't have to be as refined as say Grand Theft Auto for a game to be enjoyable, and the TellTale games are a testament to that. Speaking of TellTale games are what Heavy Rain wishes it could be. Play through The Walking Dead or their Game of Thrones games and you see that the controls are not ever meant to be the highlight of the game. It's the story, characters, plot developments and voice acting that is at center stage.
Heavy Rain has some bad voice acting that really pulls you out of the game at times ....(let's not forget JAAAAAAAAASON).
The story line was decent and did have me compelled the first time through...till you realize all the plot holes at the end. If you never played the game you should give it a go.
You begin the game as a man who's just going about his daily life. He's a husband and father, with a nice home and great carer. Suddenly tragedy befalls the family, and all this changed. This event then completely changes the scenery of the game. You start out in a bright, colorful, happy environment, only to end up in a dark, grey, non-stop raining city, with sadness all around you.
There is a serial killer kidnapping children in your city, and suddenly you find your son missing and yourself racing to find him. Along the way, you meet people who play pivotal rolls in tracking down the killer and finding your son. No ones knows who the killer is, but time is limited and you go to extreme lengths to find him in time. Tested every step of the way, every outcome can change how this story unfolds, and whether or not you find your happy ending.
You play 4 main characters in this game, not just a single person. You play a father, a "mysterious woman", a private detective and an FBI Criminal Profiler. Each of these people are all working towards the same goal, to find the Origami Killer. The choices these 4 people make determines the outcome of all future events. A character can die in the game, and if they do, the rest of the game and story unfolds differently.
When they say this game has mature content, they mean it. Nudity, murders, sex scenes, swearing, small amount of drug use and very intense scenes involving deaths/killings are all included. What makes this game also so intense is you're not just watching it, you have to play through the scenes. There are many scenarios where you have to fight hard to get away from some one who is trying to kill you. If you don't push the buttons fast enough, you watch your character die painfully. It gives the player a much more personal involvement during game play. It's right at the level where it's a great game for adults who can separate themselves from the game, but too intense for kids.
There are 3 settings for difficulty. What makes the game more or less difficult is how fast you are at pressing buttons on the controller in different required sequences. There are some scenes that are quite challenging to get past, fortunately even in the middle of game play you can lower the difficulty rating. You still have to accomplish the same button sequences, however you are given just a bit more time to complete each command. In addition to playing the game with the regular PS3 controller, it can also be played using the PS3 Move controllers.
Astounding! The best I have ever seen. Close up shots of people's faces show just how unbelievably detailed they were in designing each and every person. You can see every speck of dirt in their clothing, the rain as it soaks their hair, deep textures in all of the objects and the scenery is so real you can completely envision yourself in the setting.
One of the most powerful PS3 games I have ever played. Heavy Rain pulls you in and it's stunning graphics make you feel as though you are right there in the story. Emotional highs and lows run throughout the whole story, giving players even more incentive to try their best to find the killer in time. Plots twists you'll never see coming keep this game a shocker to the very end. You won't want to miss out on Heavy Rain, it is definitely a must buy game for your PS3 library. After completing the game once, I went back several chapters to replay other scenarios a few times, to see what the new game outcome would be. Heavy Rain is a game that even after you complete it, it pulls you back in to see what more is hidden that you missed.
