Heavy Rain User Reviews


Unique game


Heavy Rain is the story of four people. First, there’s Ethan Mars, an unlucky architect. His son is kidnapped by the Origami killer.

The Origami Killer: A Gaming Masterpiece (No Spoilers)



Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain is one of 2010’s most anticipated Playstation 3 exclusive titles of the year. To say it is nothing more than a quick-time-event game is gross understatement, as the game delivers so much more, in terms of gameplay, graphics, soundtrack and story.

The premise of the game revolves around solving the case of the “Origami Killer”, a serial killer who kidnaps and drowns young children before leaving their bodies in wastelands with an orchid on their chest, and an origami figure in their hand.

The theme, “How far are you prepared to go to save someone you love?”...
