While the controls and reliance on quick time events might deter some players, Heavy Rain is a game that must be experienced. The attention to detail and the gripping narrative are highlights and while the game fumbles in a few places it kept me hooked right to the end.
Gameplay: After a slow start the game really pics up the pace and draws you in.
Graphics: Very impressive character details and some excellent environments.
Sound: Good overall but the voice acting can sound a bit strange
