Heavy Rain

Developer Release Year Platforms
Quantic Dream 2010 PlayStation 3

Heavy Rain is a dark, immersive and emotionally-engaging experience that expands upon the innovative ideas of 2005’s acclaimed Fahrenheit to create a noir-thriller where decisions are charged with importance and actions can have drastic and unforseen consequences. Breaking with traditional game conventions where necessary, the gameplay is based around story, emotional involvement and the player’s decisions and interactions, rather than high-scores, combat and competition.


Heavy Rain review

4.5 stars: "A superb game that excels in just about every area, held back only by one or two notable flaws or a collection of smaller ones that prevent the game from earning full marks."

Choose one: Quantic Dream's latest story-driven interactive drama is a) excellent, b) gorgeous, c) exclusive to PlayStation 3.
