Heavy Rain

You're going to be hearing a lot about Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain between now and its release on the 23rd. Everyone has been playing the demo since last week, and our review is up today. The game tries to do something different with the concept of video games; just check out this video for a look at how different it is:

Any game that features an asthma inhaler mini-game is not a typical experience, wouldn't you agree?

Heavy Rain's unique story-telling style and gameplay lead to a couple strong, pre-release reactions from gamers: Either "I must play this game! It's different from everything else I've played!" or "This game is different from everything else I've played! Why would I be interested in that?"

I am firmly in the "must-play" camp. What about you?
