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

  • An evolving action-adventure thriller in which you shape the story with every decision you make.
  • Action built around four playable characters that allows you to continue playing as one of the other characters if your initial character is killed.
  • Savable chapters that allow you to replay the actions of the past, while maintaining the continuity of the events begun in earlier chapters.
  • Mature content reflecting a realistic world setting that explores powerful themes.
  • Stunning graphics, animation and technology that support an emotionally driven experience.
  • Accessible gameplay via intuitive, contextual controls and interface.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional reaction March 26 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, touching, and emotional... March 4 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

Story = epic
Graphics = epic
Sounds = epic
Gameplay = nonexistant.

the only problem with this game is that its one huge long scripted even that you CANNOT
deviate from, you have to play through it like its a movie. It was boring, could not finish;
i made it in about 10hours before I realized that I wasnt actually playing, the game was playing
me.

If your a sucker for movies though, play through this and dont look back.
This game has a story thats going to make your spine numb, its good.
But i have to say this again; technically - i cant call this a game. cant do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interactive Movie April 13 2012
By P. Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Writen with an honest effort to avoid any spoilers.

Heavy Rain. I made the mistake of buying this before my final exams one semester. Well, the intent was to play it after the exams where over. Needless to say. I played this game for three days straight and then crammed for my exams. lol

To me. This game is very unique. It is like watching a very well done 'Who-done-it' movie except the player plays along. The story is riviting...once it gets going. As with most games the first few parts allow the player to get accustomed to the controls of the game. Then - the story takes over. Trust me...once the first few scenes of the game are finished the story takes off like a rocket. An additional bonus...the graphics are supurb.

One of the things I loved about this game. You control four characters. Just...not at the same time. Think of how a movie follows one character and then switches to follow another one. This is what the game is like. Essentually you are following the story of four characters at once - in chronological order. The part I LOVE is that the game adapts to the choices you make with those characters...including if they die. This isn't Mario Bros. There are no do-overs in this game (unless you load a previous save that is). So, the ending of the game changes if one, two, three or even all four characters die. For me; this is impressive.

As for the thing that I found occationally frustrating about this game...the controls. Have you ever played Dragon Lair? You know, the game where the control was to move the joy-stick in the direction a light flashed? that is the same premis to the controls of Heavy Rain. However, they are far more complex. Far to often the game designers forced the player to make a specific motion with the controler to open a door.
