heavy rain is different, for me, different in a good way, an outstanding way. people say that this would be better in a film, which i highly disagree with, the point is to choose what YOU want to happen and what you want to do. in a film, there's only one way it can end, as you're not doing anything other than watching, the point of heavy rain is to do it yourself, as if you are the actual people choosing what to say/ do. this for me is one of the most emotional games ive played; not just because the game can end in different ways, but because you get so attatched to the characters, especially ethen mars.
sometimes you just want to jump in the tv and help him, even though that sound a bit wierd, but it's just such a different game, and such a success in my eyes. this game isnt all about pressing a button and the screen move on, not only do you have to pay close attention and be fast (which for me is tense and quite enjoyable), but you also have to do a number of things to try and figure out where to go and what to do
the people involved should feel proud of this game, as it gave me goosebumps and made me feel for the characters so much. after completing the game i can see why its a 15, purely because it can get so emotianal. this is for me one of the best games in 2010.
overall, if you are a person who enjoys playing shooting games and nothing much else, then save your money, if your one of the people like me who like most types of games, and pay close attention to the detail and story of the game, then please, GET THIS
