Heavy Rain Ps3 Review
It has been awhile since I have posted a review, sorry. Today’s edition is the adult game Heavy Rain. Not your typical, run-of-the-mill video 3rd person video game. Why you ask, well first it is not full of the normal running, jumping, shooting, and dying stuff. You are four different people in four different story lines and you have to interact with your environment by moving the analog sticks in a specific pattern to either open or close doors look at clues and further the story line. You are looking for the Origami killer who has been killing children and as you guessed it one of the four main characters is a parent with a recently kidnapped son. It is a slow-moving game, but interesting. The story was thought out in this one and from what I understand (since I only played through it once) that your actions will give you different endings.
Parents be warned there are some language issues and some nudity, but once again just look at the second sentence of this review to understand this was released as an ADULT game. For the first of its kind I enjoyed it. There are aspects that still need to be improved upon, i.e. the controls. I felt that the control was a tad bit sloppy and not put together as good as the story was. Graphics are very nice but the voice acting is right up there with the control functions…sloppy at best. Once again parents are to be warned Heavy Rain contains some strong language, suggestive themes, nudity, and adult situations. For the first of its class I can see the faults but I can also see a bright future for these types of games. Middle of the road….3 out of 5 stars.
