Critic Reviews for Heavy Rain


7.5 / 10.0

Although its clunky controls and inconsistent voice acting dates Heavy Rain, it still remains enjoyable (if mad) B-grade sholock. A stunning visual upgrade on the PlayStation 4 makes this the version to grab if you're new to developer Quantic Dream's games, and existing fans should find enjoyment in a richer aesthetic this time around.

Heavy Rain is poorly written and not as smart as it thinks it is, but has a genuine sense of choice and consequence.

David Cage's breakout title gets prettier, but not smarter.

Despite having some awkward control quirks while playing with a mouse and keyboard, the PC version of Heavy Rain is just as solid as the PlayStation 4 re-release.

Heavy Rain is an absolute classic of its unique genre ov videogames. The story of the origami killer can still charm with its blend of mistery and noir ingredients and the remastered graphics are a plus to enjoy it. Unfortunately, the gameplay mechanics feel a little old, but this alone doesn't really kill the experience as a whole.

Heavy Rain was quite the unique release in 2010 and is still worth a look for genre fans. This PC re-release improves a lot of things about that original experience, but doesn't go as far as it could in some respects.

Ultimately, Heavy Rain is an experiment that both succeeded and failed, when it could easily have been a total success if the brains behind it weren't trying so hard to be smart and cared more about providing a sensible plot as opposed to a shocking one.

Nine years later, Heavy Rain's flaws have only become more pronounced. Even so, strong narrative design can't be denied, and it's just enough to ease the pain caused by the game's more outrageous blunders.
