I originally played Heavy Rain on the PS3, and remembered kinda liking it, despite some issues with both the story and the gameplay. Heavy Rain was unique, and it looked amazing. And the gameplay was novel. Playing it on PC, immediately takes me back. And it’s still kinda good. I am unable to give an open recommendation, because Heavy Rain is not for everyone. You need to be into this kind of game to like it. You play as multiple characters, looking into a kidnapping. It’s a dark tale, and the atmosphere is really well done. It still looks fantastic on PC and if you want an entertaining story, despite some cliched moments, Heavy Rain is completely worth your time.
Interesting and choice and consequence driven gameplay
Not for everyone
Score – 7/10
