How Heavy is the Rain?
So I picked up a copy of Heavy Rain, and long story short. I really loved it, it's interesting, compelling, and intense. I wholly support this style of game. The story is similar to Se7en with some elements of Saw in one case. It's visually beautiful, and inventive. Though its got some serious problems, ranging from serious bugs to audio issues to a story that doesn't really make sense towards the end and a really slow and long tutorial. But in spite of all that, I really enjoyed it, and I highly recommend the game to anyone who is looking for a different kind of game.
The game has really affected me, I can't do a second play-through because I've grown so attached to the characters that I can't really go through it a second time. All for the hope of a different ending. I will do it eventually, but until then I still need to come down from my first play-through.
