Heavy Rain is not a game, it's an experience of a beautiful story. Ethan Mars is a wonderful character, he alone really gets the player deep into the game. It's a blockbuster hit you must watch/play. Very enjoyable game.

  Dull as a rainy day

I had big hopes for this, after all the hype and ads, but found it incredibly dull. Game play is akward and the characters uningaging. I really didn't care who the killer was, after a couple of hours of play, i just wanted something interesting to happen.
I traded it, without completing, at my local game shop..and that was the most fun i had with it.

I haven't bought this game yet, but I'm very excited about it.
There's just one thing I need to know. So can anybody tell me which subtitles are on this game?

Thanks already

personally i have no idea what the review below is about. It is a bit slow gameplay as you can't run anywhere, always at walking speed, but in a way its kinda worth it cos your so eager to know whats gonna happen next so it kinda building upto it. The storyline is superb, graphics are unbelievable. I only got my ps3 yesterday, i've got a few games but i cant get off this game. Its incredible, so different to other games, shooting and fighting games etc, its more of a roleplay game i reckon, where in the beginning you take care of your son, cook him meals, put him to bed etc. Then bit later on look after a womans baby, change her nappy etc. Its just so unique and i love that about this game. I've been playing for probably 5 maybe 6 hours, and i'm only 14% complete. Therefore it seems a huge game. Absolutely love it, would reccomend this game to anybody.

  Incredibly boring

Never, have I played a game so boring before.

I really tried with this game. I must have played for a good 5-6 hours before I couldn't bear the snail pace speed of the game any longer.

You can't run which means just walking from a to b is frustratingly slow. The game supposedly gives you choices - but I found these were far and few between. Instead it just slowly nudges you down an incredibly tedious line of events.

For example, there is a part in the game where you go into a house and find a woman with her wrists slit lying in the bath. You can't just leave her there, ransack the place and leave. No, you have to clean her up and fanny about taking care of her crying baby and god knows what else before you can leave. You have to rock the baby to sleep with the awful control system - I just wanted to kill the damn kid, kill the woman, grab the mobile phone and get out of there!

All that said, when you're not having to perform stupid menial tasks just for the sake of satisfying the annoying control system, the story is actually pretty good. It's a shame there's so many of these mandatory tasks.....

I want my 5 hours back.

This game has to have the most addictive storyline known to man. The plot is just so fantastic I couldn't leave this game alone! Or at least not until I found the truth behind the story, which was a complete rollercoaster! Highly reccomended.

  A great game..

but it has a few faults.

The bad things about this game are that i loved it up untill i found out who the origami killer was.. then i was really dissapointed. One of the other faults is its quite sly with hiding who the killer is.. It cuts scenes and then shows you them at the end so you have no real chance of guessing who the killer is... its pretty annoying.
Other than that i really enjoyed this game and it does keep you intrested throughout, it also has great characters and it looks great, the only thing that really let it down for me was the killers identity.
7 out of 10

Played this for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and all I can say is WOW! The demo does not do it justice.....

First time round, ended up with the worst outcome possible.... However once you have reached the end, the game gives you the option of replaying any scene and already by changing one thing, I know the final outcome will be different.

For me, this is NOT a game, more like an interactive movie that you direct. It challenges your ability with the controller and to think fast and every action has a consequence.....

My wife hates video games, but even she has taken an interest in how the story is developing. The 1st thing she said to me when she woke up last week was "have you found out who the murderer is yet?"

All my other games have not had a look in since I started playing this, soo engrossing. It's not perfect, but it's probably about as close as you will ever get!....

Simply Brilliant!

  You can't put it down.

Perhaps a new dawn in gaming. Its difficult to put this game into a genre type. Its like being part of an interactive movie where your actions will determine the outcome of the story. There are several endings. Amazing visuals, soaring soundtrack and the acting reaches a new video game high. Heavy Rain can be exciting, moving, stunning and mysterious. It will not suit everyones taste but if you want a change from the usual yearly update of shooters/sports then this will not disappoint.
