PS3 news: Heavy Rain Review

Well, I expect to catch flak for this one.
While I willingly admit that Heavy Rain is both beautiful and impressive, I simply don’t think it’s a very good video game. In fact, I’m not sure that was it’s goal.
When the developers start referring to their title more as interactive fiction than a video game, you can see the direction the project is headed.
While there are plenty of reviewers who have Heavy Rain perfect to near perfect scores, I have to ask them what their criteria was. My review of Heavy Rain admits that it is special, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good game.
