Summary: I hated this. It's not a game, it's a slighty interactive movie. The "game" portion is great if you like Simon Says or an extremly limited Sims. They show an up arrow, you press up. That's all this is, the whole game. What the game says to press is not predictable which means, I can never get lost in the story. Even in the most intense parts, like fighting for my life, I can't really get into it because I have to watch for what button I need to press next.
Excellent concept, plot and graphics but poor execution

Summary: I have particularly mixed feelings about Heavy Rain. I was initially intrigued by reviews detailing how much control the player has over decisions and game/story progression for a total of around 17 possible endings. I also liked the idea of playing through the story of a serial killer investigation from the perspective of four different characters.
