For those of you who got Heavy Rain on PS3

What do you think of it?

Attempted to buy it yesterday, but for £39.99 squids I need to read up few reviews first

Personally I am a hardcore Modern Warfare shooter fan, however I can also sit down and go through quests and level up my characters in Dragon Age as well, but this game looks like something different to role play games or shooters.

Can someone give a quick review please? cheers

I completed it yesterday. Yeah it was very good. More like an interactive film than a videogame - albeit a brilliant one. As a story it is similar in tone to Chris Carters' 'Millennium' tv series(or a patricularly bleak X-Files episode), and has the odd element from the likes of 'Saw' thrown in for suspense.

Despite many reviewers trying to convince you otherwise, the action scenes ARE a series of quick-time events, BUT they're done brilliantly. As for spoilers, the storyline changes and adapts according to what happens when you control the 4/5 characters so any spoilers you hear may not be fatal.

It's really hard to express what this game is really like, some will hate it. It is really a point and click adventure controlled in the third person for much of it, then the action set pieces are segued into those.

Thumbs up for the soundtrack/score, it's one of the richest and best I've ever experienced in a game.

It's quite short as I completed it in 3 (long) sittings - but had really grown to love the characters in that short space of time, and the ending I experienced was really satisfying.

I am about 8 hours in to it and just throughly enjoying every moment instead of rushing to the end no spoilers please
#5
I see, sounds like it's a game to be experienced, will check it out on dvd.co.uk

Personally I do like a good story in games, didn't skip any scene in Metal Gear Solid and believe me there were a LOT of cut scenes in that game, I expect Heavy Rain will be just like that, minus the action and shooting

I've got an 80GB and don't even get me started on that one.

I've been playing it since Tuesday.

It's fabulous. Easily the most addictive game I have played in a long time. :)

It's a PS3 exclusive, so its definitely rubbish.

There's a demo on PSN, give that a go as it will give you a taster of how the gameplay works. I like it, can see how others wouldn't though.

Yeah those 50gb discs can't hold anywhere near as much data as those 8gb ones! :thumbsup:

Just when I thought you were cured vibe you go about spouting rubbish again.

25GB discs are single layer Blu Ray.

360 games are only up to 8GB per disc. :)

But which one holds my present favorite console game Mass Effect 2 ? , Size isn't everything especially when it comes to a well made game :-D



Mass Effect 2 was on two discs, imagine if it was on PS3 blu-ray then it will only need one disc plus plenty of room for extra missions
#19
Horrible game.

chelskii;8017485
Don't matter about 2 discs that's nothing, as for the extra missions na you don't get extra missions on the modern PS3 games(I have one) they make you download and pay for them just like the 360

(Though you do actually get free missions + Armour etc to download when you get Mass Effect 2)

Bio-ware are releasing some more extra missions soon on 360 that you can just download and they look like they are going to be Free.


Did you get Heavy rain in the end ?. Doesn't sound like "adrian96" thinks much of it..

ignore that troll. He even thinks BF:BC2 is rubbish and God of War 3 is sh*te! What a muppet! :-D

Relax everyone

chelskii;8022565
I asked the OP who I was talking to did he get Heavy rain and pointed out what Adrian96 said about it so why have you highlighted it ,what your point ?. It was Adrian96 comment...

So you say that I think (eh you Psychic !!!) BF BC2 is rubbish ? you seehis is just an example of how bad your lies (Stirring) are.

This is actually what I said about BF BC2 on a deal for it - (Posted on 25-02-2010 )7th post down -

"Good price like the demo
Hot"

And God of war I said I don't like hack and slash games, so what ?. I didn't say "I think it is ***** like you have said I did though"
And I'm saying now "I won't be buying it because to me it looks boring and repetitive and I don't like hack and slash games", is it also ok with you that I also didn't get Bioshock 2..

And you got to laugh at the troll bit as you have said "you now only own a PS3" I have both, you really are stupid aren't you.
I noticed that since I got a PS3 you kept writing remarks about me being a 360 fanboy or something yer that makes real sense doesn't it. (and I notice they got deleted soon after or you deleted them)

I thought that since your main man was banned (you know the one you used to be his backup boy) you had stopped all the cr*p, but your just weird...... :-D
-----------
And "He even thinks" Not "he said", so what are you a mind reader or something ?.

LOL - tl;dr

I was referring to adrian as the troll hence me boldfacing the aridan comment you wrote!

look at his past misc comments and he ***** off all the games I mentioned. :whistling:

That's just confusing why didn't you just quote his post ? Quoting mine looked like you were talking to me. :thinking:

As for the Xboxts it's the same both ways look at the Halo Reach post -

All goes well until post 6 -

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/624243/halo-reach-multiplayer-video-confir?

and how exactly would it make sense if I replied to his post saying ignore the troll lol

everyone else on this sites seems to manage with the emphasis on the relevant quote being in BOLD

Well you could of just quoted his thread and then said "Ignore "this" troll he etc".

Trouble is you since I got a PS3 you did keep writing about me being the biggest 360 fanboy has now got a PS3 or something on a lot of posts,most were deleted though including this one which was set up for a deal exchange I was doing with someone.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/596371/fs-fortrade-uncharted-2-for-new-pla

So I was a bit ****** off and straight away thought you meant me here.

well I didnt mean you so you were wrong. Then again, you can hardly deny you weren't the biggest 360 fanboy ever seen on this site before you got a ps3. Dont ask me to produce the evidence as everyone knows the truth :-D
banned#28
This was a funny one, oh them were the days!
Ironically you kept reiterating that Episodes from Liberty City would never go to PS3.

I like to read some of these old posts, they're really funny.
Not just you chelskii, but all of us, me included. Hilarious!

That was bound to happen as soon as Microsoft's exclusivity rights expired, although I think it may still restrict the episodes from being sold as DLC on PSN.

I think for a UK only deals forum this site sure does see a lot of fanboyism (not aimed at anyone in particular). I own both consoles and get most multiformat titles on the PS3 these days as that's what most of my friends seem to have moved to and I've never really been one for playing random folk online. I would say that some of the multiformat titles I have seen can look marginally better on the 360 though but the PS3 does seem to have a few exclusive titles which simply couldn't be done on the 360 where as the 360 doesn't really have any like that.

Well they're DVD's and Dual Layer DVD can only hold up to 8GB.

The optical media system between the Xbox and the 360 is actually fairly unchanged apart from some additional protection schemes on the latter format. I think most developers seem to make the best of it though and it doesn't really hinder the format all that much really.

Game discs are limited to 6.8 GB
#32
I'm sorry but the chances of that are slim, history has shown that external media add ons don't work (like mega cd, 32x, 64dd etc) as they will only appeal and thus be available to a small portion of the overall Market and so development for them is usually poor.

It's my opinion that natal will probably also fail for this same reason as it looks to me just like a rather fancy wii fit board and no developer will really be able to count on all owners of the 360 buying one.

HD-DVD's primary failure was microsoft not using it as the format for it's 360 software. If they had have done then today's HD video market would probably look very different.

Technically they're not that's just a Microsoft imposed limit to comply with xdfs, the custom layer break and the protection routines on 360 discs.

On the topic of Heavy Rain by the way, I finished it this weekend and I am convinced that it is the best game I have ever played.

Truly amazing stuff.

Agreed, returning to topic :thumbsup:

Also finished it at the weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it, however I can see that the game may not be for everyone's taste.

I will play it few more times to get the different endings, after that I am going back to kill streaks in modern warfare 2 :)
#37
The review I read advised against replaying it for the different endings as it's designed to be a one off experience sort of thing, plus my girlfriend is now playing it and she doesn't want to see me playing through the later sections. It's taking a lot of will power not to tell her who the killer is. :)

I'll be moving on to FF13 I think. I started AVP at the weekend but it gets old very quickly.

wow i thought chelskii had a problem with me but it looks like he hates everyone who doesnt agree with him.

all i ever see him do is whine about something.

You really are stupid aren't you, if you read the previous posts you will see that mistakes were made and some messing about, not arguments. so maybe you should stop your stirring.

The weird thing is it is YOU who actually posts first and then complains when people reply ?.

I watched you being hammered yesterday when you posted on things like the Battlefied 2 post and your MW2 comments, I didn't join in did I ? I will next time though...

It all starts here -

I think this one just about sums it all up after you really started to annoy people

"alera": said -
This will be sub £30 within a few weeks for sure... fps_d0minatr you really do bore me to tears. Are you 13 or something ?

"fps_d0minatr " said -
why is your 13 year old son boring?
dont read it if you dont like it, i didnt force you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Actually as you wrote that on a deal(Not even a misc discussion) I'm surprised you didn't even get suspended (Hopefully next time you will)..


surprise surprise.........obvisouly theres more BC2 fans than MW2 fans on there.

and why should i get suspended just because hes usingthe stereotype that 13 year olds are boring? hes the one who should get suspended.
