Can’t wait for the down pour!
I expierenced Heavy Rain during E3. Well, those are words that I wish were true. It is more like I watched other people expierence Heavy Rain on the TV while I was watching E3, but I can dream! I was very impressed by the game play for Heavy Rain. The director, David Cage, described the game as “a very dark film noir thriller with mature themes”, and that “the real message [of the game] is about how far you’re willing to go to save someone you love.”
The controls seem very unique, just as unique as the game play, as David Cage as described that you are able to control the characters head as well as his speed with one of the triggers on the controller. I watched as someone played a demo at E3 and while he was playing David had mentioned that the story arch could change based on the decisions that you make during the game. I personally respect story boards more when they are complicated and intelligent enough to change based on what decisions are made during the game play as it leaves more chances of another play through in order to get different stories and endings to the game.
Heavy Rain is scheduled for release in 2010.
