First Heavy Rain Review is in – did it fail?

Heavy Rain

The Official PlayStation Magazine isn’t what I would call the most unbiased place to look up PlayStation exclusive reviews but it is the one who won the rights to publish the first Heavy Rain review.

So how did it do? Well for all those people out there who were looking forward to this game this is great news, the OPM (UK) magazine has given Heavy Rain a 9/10.

Calling it

“A unique experience that lurches between genius and madness”

and that it “manages to be genuinely emotional”

I am really looking forward to giving this a try and am well pleased that it has come out with such a good score as I am sure are Quantic Dreams themselves who must still be on the edge of their seats waiting for the rest of the reviews.

    Omikron was amazing. Fahrenheit was brilliant. How could this game be anything less?

    Call me weird, but I’m looking forward to this more than God of War III. Of course, take in to consideration that I’m really, really looking forward to God of War III. Really.

      does it have anything to do with the fact it has a healthy dose of “mammarifaction”?

        Nah, it just seems like a nice emotive game with adult themes that doesn’t rely on wanton violence.

          bloody hell, I gave it 95. A little bit of side boob and an exposed nipple or two and it would have easily scored 217.

      Same here mate. Higher on my wish list than God of War 3.
      SO is Dante’s Inferno for that matter.

      Christian Hell theme = cool

      Greek Myths = been there, done that.

    OPM UK reviews are quite good and not really biased in my opinion . They have even under-rated some Sony releases before. So well done to the devs.

    No Fuss Reviews dropped a 10/10 on Heavy Rain’s door step, I’d call that a good score!
