7.5 / 10.0

Rainswept is a heavy game. Its sad piano music and endless poetic rainfall underscoring the human tragedy depicted. If you're capable of shouldering the game's baggage, Rainswept provides an "entertaining" tale. I certainly "enjoyed" it. However, if what you're looking for is a fun murder mystery to sink your teeth into, you might be better off seeking clues elsewhere.

Ultimately, Rainswept has a good story to tell. A sad story, one of grief, loss, murder and small-town cruelty.

Rainswept is an adventure with a promising introduction and a completely disappointing ending. Standard chewing gum and popcorn for the modern brain that requires visual and psychological enjoyment.

Rainswept might be the first game to learn from Kentucky Route Zero not only aestethically, but also in terms of direction. All things considered, it tells a simple story, but it does so in a way that shows remarkable sensitivity, a talent for writing, and above all a very uncommon attention to the overall direction of scenes. It may not be as revolutionary as its source of inspiration, but it certainly has something to say.
