    Even ten years after its premiere, this interactive thriller from David Cage is still great. Sometimes you can sense the age when it comes to visuals, but if you haven’t played this yet, you are in for a treat.

    Solid port, but there are some problems with the controls.

    It is an incredibly jarring, emotionally gutting game with beautiful music that sinks its teeth into you and refuses to let go until it reels back with a piece of your heart.
  4. Heavy Rain is perfect game, PC port looks good and works smoothly.

    Heavy Rain was quite the unique release in 2010 and is still worth a look for genre fans. This PC re-release improves a lot of things about that original experience, but doesn't go as far as it could in some respects.

    Of course, it’s a good thing that Heavy Rain is now available on PC. Many people will be able to play it for the first time and the game is still very beautiful, visuals-wise. But the mouse/keyboard controls are sluggish.

    Nine years later, Heavy Rain’s flaws have only become more pronounced. Even so, strong narrative design can’t be denied, and it’s just enough to ease the pain caused by the game’s more outrageous blunders.

    Played Heavy Rain a decade ago and now playing it on PC a decade later and i can say it is a real treat to be able to play it again in highPlayed Heavy Rain a decade ago and now playing it on PC a decade later and i can say it is a real treat to be able to play it again in high definition, 60fps glory. for me this game is a masterpiece, a well and amazingly crafted movie-story game and Quanticdreams just continue to outdo themselves with every new IP they make. Truly an experience and one you shouldn't miss out on, if you haven't already, give it a try. Expand

    No game to date has as many branching plot arcs based on player decision and performance, it's an undeniable masterpiece in interactive narrative.

    Сюжет неплох, чего и следовало ожидать от визуальной новеллы, однако экспозиция ну оооочень затянута и скучна, из-за ее всратости не удивлюсь,Сюжет неплох, чего и следовало ожидать от визуальной новеллы, однако экспозиция ну оооочень затянута и скучна, из-за ее всратости не удивлюсь, если кто - нибудь забросил игру в первые 2 часа. Персонажи интересные и классные, выбор влияет, атмосфера просто запредельная, графика оставляет желать лучшего, но игра все-таки 2010 года, так что можно сделать игре снисхождение. После прохождения нет ощущения, что ты прошел какой-то шедевр, или игра раскрыла много проблем, закрутила сюжет, этого всего нет. Просто неплохая игра на 1 раз, не более. Expand

    Good game, but still needs improvements. QTE sequences make it difficult. Other than that, story is nice.

    Good story telling when it actually works.
    Crashes.
    Button prompts are extremely annoying. Range from menial to just instantly kill someone.
    Good story telling when it actually works.
    Crashes.
    Button prompts are extremely annoying. Range from menial to just instantly kill someone. Why is that a problem?
    Because its not made clear what each button prompt does. At one point i wanted to check what an item is only to instantly chug some pills. At another point there was a standoff and i killed a guy because there was a button prompt but the button prompt didnt say **** go **** and murder him on the spot".
    Its hard to pick the dialogue choices you want - not because they are all interesting but because the writing floats in circles and wiggles making it impossible to read in the time they want you to make a choice. On top of that they tend to change numbers - i.e. if a dialogue choice was previous button "2" then in the next spinwheel dialogue choice it might be 3 or 4 and thats just stupid af.
