Pros: Interesting story, very unique game, great graphics.
Cons: Telling what the controls will do can be sometimes confusing.
Heavy Rain is a very unique game that has its own play style. This game while having really little live action is driven by its great story. The best way to sum up playing this game is a interactive movie where you are fully in control of the characters fates. The plot of the story has a lot of unexpected twists and turns which leaves you wanting more. The only downside to this game I experienced was in some situations where you can picked three or more actions you might end up doing something you did not want to do because it does not really explain what each action will do.
This game is fully driven by the story. If you are looking for a action packed game I suggest you look elsewhere. The game itself has many different paths you can lead down with each decision changing the story drastically. Because of this the game has very good replay value. While the main concept of the story will not change it will however change key points in the story including the ending.
While the game is somewhat old the graphics are top notch for a PS3 game. A nice feature in this game is that you are control four different characters though out the game. While having nothing to do with each other in the beginning of the story their fates intertwined by the end. Because of this you get to see all aspects of the story.
Overall Would give this game a 4.5/5 and it is a must play for any PS3 owner who has already not tried this great title.
