"The Best Game I've Ever Played"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was absolutely on edge waiting for this game to arrive on my doorstep and once I started playing, I wasn't disappointed at all.

Heavy Rain is possibly the most epic game I've ever played. It's absolutely intense knowing that if your character dies, the story just continues. Knowing that all your decisions impacts the whole game and the story makes it even more intense. I found myself nervously trying to make sure I made all the right choices so I don't accidentally kill off one of the characters.

The critics were correct in saying that playing Heavy Rain affects your emotions. It takes you through a whirlwind of emotions and knowing that your actions affect the gameplay gives Heavy Rain a whole other dimension to the gameplay.

In a nutshell, if you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of Heavy Rain yet, you should hurry up and get a copy and start playing. You definitely won't regret buying this game. And if you can, try get the collector's e­dition, the packaging is absolutely beautiful ;D

"Flipping Amazing!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Words cannot describe the level of intensity this game provides as if I tried to explain this it would surely spoil it.

If move isnt for you but an intense, gripping and inane thriller is right up your alley then THIS GAME IS FOR YOU!

Hell, this game should be on any self respecting PS3 gamers shelf.

More than recommended, GO AND BUY THIS GAME!

Description

Heavy Rain Collector's Edition includes:
  • Special embossed packaging
  • Episode 1 of the Heavy Rain Chronicles
  • Soundtrack
  • Dynamic XMB theme for your PS3.
Heavy Rain is a dark, immersive and emotionally-engaging experience; one that expands upon the innovative ideas of 2005's acclaimed Fahrenheit to create a noir-thriller where decisions are charged with importance and actions can have drastic and unforseen consequences.

In Heavy Rain you don't watch the story - you play it. The dynamic narrative unfolds through the players actions - not cut scenes - and every action has a consequence. The choices you make and the way you interact with other characters have repercussions throughout the storyline. With unprecedented responsibility over the fates of the game's characters, Heavy Rain is an emotional experience unlike any other as a mature game for a new world of adult gamers.

From the team behind the critically-acclaimed Fahrenheit comes an even darker and more adult thriller, set to test the boundaries of video game storytelling. The story revolves around the hunt for a serial killer called The Origami Killer by four very different people: a FBI profiler, a private detective, an architect and a journalist.

If one of them dies the fact is simple incorporated into the story and you carry on playing with the remaining characters until either the killer is caught or the game ends in failure.

Although the story and characters are paramount the game still feature plenty of action, many playing out via quick time event sequences similar to Fahrenheit - where you have to press the buttons indicated on screen within a time limit. The game aims to be the most cinematic and emotional video game ever made - could this be the start of the game noir genre?

Features:

  • Heavy plotting: A dark, adult-themed thriller with believable characters and a captivating plot full of love, violence and sacrifice.
  • Virtual luvvies: Breakthrough facial animation features the most realistic virtual actors ever seen, each capable of mimicking real and varied emotions.
  • Consequences: If a character dies they stay dead - no extra lives or continues, just an organic plotline with multiple different endings.
  • Quick Time: Intense action sequences that anyone can play, with simple controls and fast-paced against-the-clock challenges.
  • Conscious action: Unique control system lets you see what your character is thinking as they explore the world - and then act on it with a press of a button.
