Story
How far will you go to save someone you love? In Heavy Rain each player discovers their own answer to this question as they experience a gripping psychological thriller filled with innumerable twists and turns, where choices and actions can and do result in dramatic consequences. Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer - named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Even more chilling is the fiend's well established pattern of killing his victims four days after abducting them. The public is gripped with fear as the police seem powerless to stop the carnage, and another potential victim — Shaun Mars — has gone missing. Now four characters, each following their own leads and with their own motives, must take part in a desperate attempt to prevent the killer from taking yet another life.

Gameplay
Heavy Rain is a single player, action/adventure game with a particularly strong emphasis on a player-influenced storyline as a means of facilitating the evolution of action towards one of many possible conclusions. The game features four playable characters: a father, a photographer, a FBI agent with a special skill set and a retired cop turned private detective. Each have different paths, means and motives to ending the reign of terror that the Origami Killer has imposed on their city. As players follow the path laid before their character of choice, they are able to explore, interact with and view their surroundings in a variety of ways using their controller's left and right sticks. At crucial times players are given a series of choices relating to how to proceed in various situations, with the outcome of these choices revealing both benefits and consequences. Benefits can be important to progressing through the game, while possible consequences can in turn pose a very real danger to characters, including death. But unlike other games, and because Heavy Rain features four playable characters that exist independently of each other, yet simultaneously within the same the story arc, this does not end the game. Players are instead able to play as one of the other available characters, with appropriate changes to possible outcomes due to the absence of the deceased character(s).

Key Game Features

this game is from the makers on indigo prophecy which was a great game. interaction in this game is awesome, you get to use the controller to it's full advantages by tilting it using the sixaxis on the controller and by using the analog stick as well.

Story starts out as you play ethan mars which he is married and have two kids, but later on something tragic happens and then you have to makes choices. you play as four characters in the game, which you get to control and you also get to choose how the story plays out as well. for example if someone dies,you figure ok story ends or it is game over right? wrong! the story will still continue depending on your actions later on in the game, and there is a lot of choices to be made in this game.

Graphics in the game are great but sometimes seems the polishing or the textures in the game could of use a bit more work, but again the visuals and graphics are still awesome.

already beaten the game and still yet got to play it again for the different scenes and outcome in the game just to see how it plays out.

this game is really emotional, fun and exciting and really enjoyable to play i had a great time playing it. for the story ethan mars loses one son and his other son gets kidnapped and the question is how far will you go to save someone you love?

I didn't wanna say too much about the story or give much away about it cause it is a great game to be played. If you played indigo prophecy then you know what to expect from this game.

But be warned this game does contain violence, some nudity and language not suitable for kids at all.

Im exhausted, my heart is still racing. Heavy Rain is a punishing experience, both physically and emotionally. The roller-coaster of events, shocking twists and riveting action kept me very literally on the edge of my seat. This is a new form of narrative, an entirely different way to experience a story, to be drawn into its mystery have impact on its events.

Forgoing traditional controls, every action is performed with a context sensitive movement or timed button press. Every option from opening a door to starting a car is done with a twist or turn of the right analog stick. For every mundane routine there is a different input required, from holding multiple buttons down, to slowly, gently lowering the analog stick.

Motion control is finally being put to good use; I was smashing and heaving my controller in moments of intense pressure, exerting great force in my movements to produce the desired result.

Heavy Rain asked me to perform a lot of strange actions, things that are not scene in videogames; from slowly swinging the analog stick gently rocking a child to sleep. Brushing my teeth and shaving before dressing for work. By making me perform these commands for even mundane actions, I was brought inside the character, it was not a man running from the cops, it was me, I was running, panting, trying to catch my breath, I was dodging punches and talking opponents. I was responsible for these characters lives; from there every day functions to the life and death situations they were faced with.

The more elaborate routines required more fingers than I had available. Holding down what appears to be 73 buttons at one time, and then propelling the controller to the right, it does a great deal to make the deed tangible.

It has been a long time since I've been touched and moved by a game. Heavy Rain is a game that has you play as various characters through a story where you have to figure out who the killer is, where the victim is, and so forth. This is truly one of those rare games where the story is really the golden factor of this game...as it literally forces you - due to a game mechanic - to choose and suffer the consequences...be they good or bad! It is a fascinating formula which creates a sense of a "choose your own adventure" book but with characters easily recognizable and memorable. This game really tugs at ones heart and emotions and I don't want to speak how it does this as it would ruin it for everyone who hasn't played this game and experienced it for themselves!

A little warning for parents there is some nudity but then again the scope, story, and type of game of this caliber is catered to mature young adults and older.

A definite 5 stars for a great addictive story, awesome action, beautiful music and atmosphere.

This is a different kind of game and one that will not appeal to everyone. However, I really liked the gameplay and how the story is driven. If you are a parent, you may very well connect further with the main character and the game in general. I know that being a parent and playing this game, it really played on my emotions. This game can move you like few can. The controls are ok and there is some issues with the story, but an overall very positive experience.

Heavy Rain, a game by Quantic Dream, is an adventure game utilizing quick time events (QTEs). Although QTEs can seem repetitive and boring, the way they are integrated into the game along with the storyline exemplifies a seemless transition.

This game has replayability, due to it's multiple endings. Although some parts you would have to play over and over again can be quite tedious to gain trophies and all endings, the game is still enjoyable even on subsequent playthroughs for the most part.

The graphics are top-notch, the sound is excellent, and the overall presentation is amazing.

The only downside is once you finish the game, collect all trohpies and endings, it's unlikely you'll play it again, but then again, you could say that for a lot of single player games.
