Heavy Rain is a dramatic thriller and a video game unlike any other. It's certainly not for everyone but most critics are agreed that it is a rare and stunning achievement, if not quite perfect.
This is the first time I have seen Heavy Rain for less than £35 and a truly fantastic deal. It undercuts the next best price (£37 from Amazon) by £5, while most retailers still have it listed for around £40.
The game is still available but it's hard to ascertain how long the situation will last as the site helpfully says "More than 10 in stock". Might be best to hurry for this one then!
Heavy Rain is centred around four people who are all, one way or another, embroiled with the case of of the Origami Killer, who drowns his victims in rain water. The story continuously adapts around you, based upon your actions but you can guarantee that it will always be thought provoking and moving.
As a game, Heavy Rain is a strange thing, part point and click adventure, part mini game collection and part interactive movie, it will leave many frustrated and unsatisfied in terms of gameplay. However, as an experience and a storytelling device, this is truly something special; offering the sort of emotional involvement that is only rarely found in this medium, Heavy Rain will place you right into the hearts and minds of its characters and cast a spell over you that will linger long after you have watched the final scenes.
