Good but weird...

RJJR , GameStop
21 November 2014
  • Summary: JASON! JASON? JASON! JASON! JASON!!! This game is good but kind of weird. The beginning of the game is kind of lame but then starts to pick up the pace...it's the cop, that's all you need to know

Unique experience with dividing Gameplay (If you can call it that)

  • Summary: From the reviews, you can guess ths is a mixed bag. While I don't think it's as great or innovative as many people claim it to be,(the same company made a very similar game called Fahrenheit a few years before), it is not as bad as others claim either. It falls in between.

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.

Not much of a game, but an average detective movie.

  • Summary: This game is overrated and should not be recommended to "gamers". Instead, it should be recommended to fans of mystery/crime/detective movies with extreme patience. Imagine watching an 8 hour detective movie.

It's okay

  • Summary: This game was good as far as it went but didn't seem to go anywhere or maybe it was because I couldn't make it go anywhere. But the time I spent with it was fun.

Interactive Movie

Michael W. Shull, Amazon

  • Summary: When I decide I want a video game, I avoid all possible news on the game. I did not know that Heavy Rain was going to play as an interactive movie but I still enjoyed my time with it.

User Review

Tokyochuchu, Metacritic
6 April 2012
  • Summary: The proverbial 'interactive movie', Heavy Rain undoubtedly had the potential to be brilliant. Unfortunately, most of that potential is squandered by sloppy writing, ridiculous twists and stretching it's thin concept too far. The game isn't a total loss, though.

not a fun game, but a successful one in several ways

Happy Tronukkah!, Amazon
6 December 2010
  • Summary: There has been a lot of talk about Heavy Rain being a glimpse of the future of video games. A game that expands the possibilities of video games as a medium to tell a story. This is true in some ways. Heavy Rain feels experimental, and it succeeds in a lot of its experiments.

Very well executed, but dull

Psychic Cypher, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: The premise of this game is awesome...an "adult" (by that, I mean mature, non-cartoony subject matter) game that explores themes of grief, loss, death, psychological pain, crime, mystery, etc. And it's very well executed. Great storytelling. But I just had a hard time getting into it.

3 stars for graphics

April S., Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: ...2 stars for the rest. Its layout is much too rigid. Movement is awkward and clunky, difficult to adjust to, and then there's only so much freedom. Too linear for my taste, and I didn't like how it jumps from character to character. I like the characters, just not how they are set up to be played.
