Heavy Rain Review

Games Abyss
7 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Possibly worth a rent or budget-priced pick up as a morbid curiosity. Not worth full retail price.
  • Pros: QTE chase sequences are as riveting as they come.
  • Cons: Most of the interactions are meaningless, forced prompts that have no outcome on the story—which doesn't make a lick of sense anyway.

Heavy Rain: Story,QTE's and popcorn

ablegamers.com
27 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Heavy Rain is less a game and more an interactive mystery movie with superb animation 90% of the time. The story is about a serial killer known as the “Origami Killer” and trying to find one of the characters sons before they meet their demise. I would have to say the story starts out kind of slow, although it picks up shortly thereafter. All in all it is interesting and a very enjoyable.

  • Excerpt: There’s been a long standing debate as to why video games aren’t as respected by the general public as their older media-brother; movies. Movies can be anything from kids fluff, to blockbuster action to art. Video games on the other hand are just that – games.  I’ve always said that the reason for this is that film directors do a great job at connecting an audience with their characters, something that video game developers have arguably struggled with doing for decades.

  • Conclusion: So is Heavy Rain worth your time then? Sure. I mean, there really hasn’t been anything like it ever before so it’s worth a look on that basis alone, just for the love of God don’t go paying $90 for it.

  • Pros: - No-one has ever tried to make a game like this before, - Stunning to look at, - Some nice ideas to the narrative, - The origami swan it teaches you to make will look pretty on your desk, - It’s short, - The faux rain-drenched packaging on the collectors edition is very cool, - The Taxidermist
  • Cons: – It rapidly becomes evident precisely why no-one has ever tried to make a game like this before, - Only one of the characters has any real charisma or personality and they even manage to make you hate him by the end too, - Apart from the visuals, the whole product lacks polish, - It’s short, - That The Taxidermist is by far the best part but it only comes with the collectors edition

Heavy Rain Chronicles 1: Der Tierpräparator - Test

Eurogamer
1 April 2010
  • Summary: Das Potential charakterbezogener Download-Episoden ist zugegebenermaßen sehr hoch, können sie doch, wenn sie die richtigen Ausschnitte aus dem Leben der Figur erzählen, diese noch weit dreidimensionaler gestalten oder eben sogar nachträglich unseren Blick auf gewisse Dinge verändern. So wie es ist, tut die Szene für den Charakter Madison aber überhaupt nichts. Sie wirkt seltsam singulär und ein bisschen wie Resteverwertung.
