Heavy Rain

Post  zoltanben90 on Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:54 am

Ive been waiting on this game for about a year now when I heard the team behind Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit. I just want to know if anyone else is getting this. For those who know nothing of this game it will be a story driven QTE game. That may sound like a bad thing to some but from the demos and videos I've saw of this game it looks very well done way better than IP/F. The story dont look half bad either.

Heavy Rain is about normal people who have landed in extraordinary situations. I wanted a much more personal story. The first thing that came to my mind, as a father of two little boys, was that the main theme should simply be a father's love for his son. This is not a game about saving the princess or the world. It's [sic] purely about a father's love. The main story will revolve around four different characters, and we're putting the spotlight on their perceptions. The question 'what is good and what is evil' is the key here, that will be just a matter of viewpoint...I believe heavily in moral choices, I'm going to use them A LOT. They're not about being good or bad, but about finding the right balance.


The 4 people you play as are FBI profiler Norman Jayden, a private detective Scott Shelby, a father Ethan Mars, and a photo journalist Madison Paige. All are said to be looking for a serial killer known as "The Origami Killer".

Demo is due out the 11th then the game comes out the 23rd

I'm definately going to get this, I've always said story was a little more important than gameplay.

(By which I mean I'll forgive bad gameplay if it has a good story, but not a bad story for good gameplay)

I'm honestly more excited about the concept of being able to kill off the main characters and having the plot change instead of a game over screen.

IGN gave it a 9.0 Saying its slow pacing was bad and tbh i wont mind that at all. I still have the game paid for and im sure i wont regret it.

This looks interesting, I like the idea of having main characters die and the game keep going; this game will definitely have good replayability.

Bump due to demo

Before I start who else got pissed at walking in this game?
I got used to it by the end but it pissed me off a good number of times not enough to hate on the game though

I love the demo other than that fact. I loved how you talk to people on this and the fight was fun to do. The crime scene was alittle slow paced for it to be the end of the demo but that new trailer was great. And Im glad that the woman from the casting demo was in the game I heard she wouldnt be that casting demo still gets me lol. Im glad i pre ordered this Im gonna love it

Eh. I really like the idea and plot in this game, but the gameplay consists of quick-time events and the character models look downright creepy.
I might try it.

It's pretty cool really...

Verdict: It's fun. And I enjoy the plot, even if it's been done to double death.

It's definitly one of the few titles PS3 owners can hold over 360 owners heads, so enjoy that Sony Fanboys.

I thought with this game the plot was supposed to deviate from cliches. Like instead of saving the princess, the plot was a guy looking for his lost son. Maybe I'm confusing the game with something. I don't have a PS3 so I haven't payed much attention it. What little I've heard of was from IGN podcasts and they say it's awesome.

I consider this a mix between movie and video game. Beleive me, children in need of rescue by parents is not uncommon in movies.

Minority Report
True Lies
Superman Returns (kinda)
Live Free or Die Hard
About half of the old Lost in space episodes.
Hook

And those're just off the top of my head.

Except those typically have an above-average person looking for their child when heavy Rain's, to my understanding, is a bit lower class.

Thats where it stands above the others because there average people and that chance at death is there and to do something "Above-Average" You have to do a insane controller input like all the shoulder buttons and 3 of the face buttons wile tilting the stick its just insane

Beat the game, ending blew my mind.

I got the good ending for being a goody two-shoes.

Gonna play again and mess up on purpose to see what happens.
