Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Heavy Rain is a vast leap in drawing believable digital performances from actors, managing to invoke empathy as the story develops, causing what would be a so-so movie narrative, to flourish as a genuinely memorable and affecting videogame.

  • Conclusion: Despite a low-quality story full of holes and absurd leaps of logic, Heavy Rain is a game that everyone should play at least once for the emotional impact it carries.
  • Pros: Incredible graphics, emotionally evocative scenes, excellent premise
  • Cons: Voice acting is hit or miss, overall story is poorly written, movement controls can be bothersome

Heavy Rain PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Bing! “Thank you for supporting interactive drama!” chimes the PSN trophy. David Cage is very comfortable with what his latest project has become and is unafraid to define it. Heavy Rain may take some time to gather momentum but once it’s rolling, you’ll be powerless to stop it.

Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode 1 - The Taxidermist

Gaming Evolution
29 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Just like Heavy Rain, The Taxidermist DLC is designed to be played through multiple times. If you decide to play through it only once, it can take you anywhere from 25-35 minutes to complete.

Review: Heavy Rain (Playstation 3)

Gametactics
19 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Outside of a few small issues (the uncanny-valley character faces and voice acting) and a couple medium ones (two uninteresting central characters and game-ending glitches), the games strong plot; beautiful background graphics and surprising replay value make this game a must-play.

  • Excerpt: Heavy Rain. A type of weather that we as Brits are pretty used to anytime of the year, living where we are in the world. It also happens to be the title of Quantic Dreams newest game for the PS3 and takes the bold step of further bridging the gap between games and film.

Gamer Limit
5 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Heavy Rain is a flawed gem. The glitches are disappointing – Quantic Dream certainly knows that. But what lies beneath is so exquisite that you should make up your own mind about it.

Heavy Rain

Gaming Evolution
23 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Heavy Rain is one hell of an experience, which tops many movies released. The story is very engaging; having wondering what’s going to happen next, then all of a sudden the event plays out differently.
