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.

PS3 Slim news: Heavy Rain Movie Rights Already Optioned, In 2006?

New Line Cinema has bought the rights for the “interactive fiction” game Heavy Rain… quite some time ago actually.
According to a link provided via Joystiq, it looks like the game’s movie rights were sold all the way back in 2006, just after the early Heavy Rain “casting” trailer was shown at E3 that year.
Now, this doesn’t mean that there is going to be a Heavy Rain movie, only that if there is that either New Line Cinema will produce it, or that another company will have to purchase the rights from them.
The dark detective game is so good, one has to wonder if a film could do it justice, or if we’d end up with another Max Payne movie.
