Excerpt: So you’ve tried out all that the PlayStation Move party games have to offer. You’ve done everything from swatting bugs and disc golf on ice to grooming virtual pets and shooting cardboard cut-outs. It’s time to see what the PlayStation Move can do when teamed up with the creative geniuses at Quantic Dream.
Conclusion: , which you can read on this site as well. My main focus was to discuss how the introduction of the PlayStation MOVE controller has changed the experience you get from this game. Overall, the motions for the game are a bit difficult and will take multiple tries before you get them right. However once you get the hang of the special motions, you’ll found that the MOVE controller creates a more unique experience than that of the DualShock 3/SIXAXIS controller.
Excerpt: How far would you be willing to go to save someone you loved? How far would you be willing to push someone else to do the same? Could you sit by and witness someone sink to the lowest depths of desperation? That's the long and short of Heavy Rain . It's a game about exploring how far, and how deep, characters and players are willing to go in a videogame and see what sort of person would come back from those depths.
Conclusion: Nos quatre héros sont sympathiques, attachants et possèdent tous des forces et faiblesses. Ce sont des humains comme vous et moi, des personnages sur qui il est facile de s’identifier. Et c’est là la grande force du jeu que de nous proposer des héros de tous les jours. Seuls quelques personnages ont été lourdement caricaturés.
Pros: Scénario prenant, Personnages attachants, Interactions immersives, Absence de Game Over, Visuellement beau, Thématiques matures
Cons: Contrôles parfois hasardeux, Synchronisation labiale mal adaptée, Quelques animations robotiques, Surexploitation des thèmes sonores, Transitions peu fluides

Excerpt: Heavy Rain Review Not many video game developers have taken a stab at interactive movies since the days of Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. With better technology came the ability to increase interactivity, and that's just what they did. This is what makes a quicktime-driven game like Heavy Rain so interesting. It goes completely against the grain and tries to bring the industry full circle in the process, but does this whodunit do it?
Conclusion: Heavy Rain is a perfect example of the future of videogames, because unlike most titles on the market it tries to give gamers a unique experience. With its dark tone and slow paced gameplay it will not be for everyone, but anyone who starts playing will instantly become locked into the world. Without question, Heavy Rain is a must play for PS3 owners and Quantic Dream has raised the bar on cinematic gaming. This one is definitely worth your hard earned bucks.
Excerpt: I have long been intrigued by Heavy Rain. Early screenshots of the game projected a beautiful, life-like game that showed off the potential of the PS3. Subsequent information got me even more excited. Heavy Rain is a murder mystery that includes roughly 24 separate endings, a large cast of interesting characters and a storyline that honestly puts most Hollywood films to shame.
