So, I just finished a playthrough of Heavy Rain and I have to say that it is a remarkable game. The whole feel of the game is that you take charge in your own interactive movie. Taking your character through tasks such as showering, frying eggs and using the toilet to jump over things, dodging cars and solve puzzles. I had high expectations after playing Fahrenheit, I love that game and hoped that this would be just as good. I’m not disappointed, this really is a beautiful game.
You’ll see life from the eyes of a few people, mainly Ethan Mars, a poor father that have ended up in one of the worst situations one could imagine. The game takes you on an adventure filled with a lot of button pressing, making you use almost all of the buttons on the controller at some points. You have to press them, to perform actions, in the right time or face the consequences. The story takes a lot of turns and the ending might not be what you expected.
The story is intriguing, interesting and captivating. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. If you haven’t played this game yet, you really should. This is one of those few games that should be played in a lifetime, that and Fahrenheit.
How far would you go to save the ones that you love?
