And the murderer is...

Finished the game yesterday. I liked it from the beginning to the end. Although the story is pretty normal for a psychological thriller (mysterious killer killing people with a twist), it still was a much needed change to the stories I usually see in the games I play.

One of the multi-view scenes. Looking good.

There really isn't much to add to my previous post. The lazy controls were there to the end and also "shake the controller" parts started to annoy me a little. (I have to add that although my game was the "move edition" I used the normal controller, so everything I say about controls is just about the pad.) Still I have very little bad to say. I'm now playing the game the second time and it's nice to have so much things that can change during the second playthrough. Almost all episodes have things that can go a different way.

At this point I guess I can reveal that I knew who the murderer was before playing the game. I accidentally got spoiled on some forum where idiots like to spoil other people for fun (f*cking lamers). So the moment where the game reveals the murderer didn't have the effect it should have had on me. But I have to admit that during the game I was starting to think that maybe I don't remember right, that person can't be the killer.

I also have to say that there may be some sides of the story that I still don't know. At least one thing comes to mind that was left unanswered. I'm hoping maybe the second playthrough and different decisions will tell me more. Anyway I'm quite happy in the way the game ended for me at the first time, there was only one thing which I failed. I got my happy ending though, just the way I like it.


Some final words: Heavy Rain is for people who like psychological thrillers or just enjoy a good story, or for people who want to play something a little bit different than the usual CODs and GTAs. Looks very nice but has some trouble with the controls.

My first post about this game is here.

Shake it baby!

I received the Dead Rising 2 in the mail today, so as soon as I'm done with Heavy Rain I'll start on that. I'm little disappointed though. Didn't read the description closely enough and I thought I'll get all that stuff in the picture I posted, but instead I just got the steelbook box, making of DVD and the cool pen. Well it was cheap although it would have been just a normal game, so I won't complain.

  2. Heavy rain was pretty fun but there were far too many plot holes.
