    Everyone must have an idea of "the general game", you play for a bit, have some fun, but then theres a time in every game when you "lose" wether you die or your time runs out.
    But hey, it's no problem you can always try again, right?
    And no matter how many times you play it, it's so damn repetitive, well not any more.

    Information About The Game
    Heavy Rain is a dark, immersive and emotionally-engaging experience; one that expands upon the innovative ideas of 2005's acclaimed Fahrenheit to create a noir-thriller where decisions are charged with importance and actions can have drastic and unforseen consequences.

    In Heavy Rain you don't watch the story – you play it. The dynamic narrative unfolds through the players actions - not cut scenes - and every action has a consequence. The choices you make and the way you interact with other characters have repercussions throughout the storyline. With unprecedented responsibility over the fates of the game's characters, Heavy Rain is an emotional experience unlike any other as a mature game for a new world of adult gamers.

    From the team behind the critically-acclaimed Fahrenheit comes an even darker and more adult thriller, set to test the boundaries of video game storytelling. The story revolves around the hunt for a serial killer called The Origami Killer by four very different people: a FBI profiler, a private detective, an architect and a journalist.

    * Heavy plotting: A dark, adult-themed thriller with believable characters and a captivating plot full of love, violence and sacrifice.
    * Virtual luvvies: Breakthrough facial animation features the most realistic virtual actors ever seen, each capable of mimicking real and varied emotions.
    * Consequences: If a character dies they stay dead - no extra lives or continues, just an organic plot line with multiple different endings.
    * Quick Time: Intense action sequences that anyone can play, with simple controls and fast-paced against-the-clock challenges.
    * Conscious action: Unique control system lets you see what your character is thinking as they explore the world - and then act on it with a press of a button.

    Here Come The Videos

    The amount of scenarios that can happen are huge,
    here are videos of some guy robbing a shop and what can hapen.


    Deaths And Trophies
    Like I previously said, whenever someone dies in the game, you don't re-do it all again, you carry on with the story and have to live with the things that have previously happened.
    Normally in a game when you do something the trophy alert message will pop-up, but in this game they appear during the loading screens so it doesn't distrupt the atmosphere of the game.


    As you can probably tell by now this game has alot of interactivity, really it's like a movie you can play.


    A Sum-Up Of The Games Features
    These guys are really trying to be unique with this game,
    I think they have done this well.


    This game is being released 26 February 2010 and will only be for the PS3.

    Sounds pretty cool.

    Wow, it does look pretty cool. I just wish they would have it for PC, too.
