    Sadly, rain doesn't make anything out of it's interesting wet vs. dry concepts, instead let's you walk through an extremely linear gameworld and do the same, simple, boring and uninspired stuff you've done in too many similar games before. Push a box here to climb up there. Pull a lever here, jump there. The graphics, while pretty, are technically surprisingly weak and the story is exactly what you'd expect. The solutions to each area are obvious but the game still holds your hand throughout the game and tells you what to do before you even get to try anything. It's not that you can't have good moments with this game, it's just that it's so forgettable and uninspired. Expand

    This game was good looking but boy was it boring. The "puzzles" aren't much of a puzzle if it is obvious. It introduces concepts that I thought would get harder but they just disappear. Lots of just walking around in the rain. Hardest part was sometimes you couldn't figure out where you were because you are invisible and only have footprints to locate. Story was arty nonsense.

    Rain is sad, beautiful and highly playable. [Nov 2013]
  2. Rain drops shows more than just silhouettes, with its great take on atmosphere and beautiful musical score, Rain is a classic.

    The idea of having the boy and girl only visible in the rain is in of itself a brilliant idea. The same goes for the games theme of childhood with strays of nostalgia. But Rain still suffers from some clumsy moments that pulls focus away from the larger story. It’s a pleasant little game that does a lot of great things, but it never really reaches full potential.
