Heavy Rain is a game about being a nearly completely interactive drama. You may think "why not just film a live action movie rather than make them virtual", but there are so many different endings to see that make this game far more than just a simple play-by-numbers interactive movie (which is what people are fearing the worst of the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII).
But while trying to be like a popcorn thriller, game, and imitate life with a variety of choices, this title falls short of one area: the gaming. Technically it is a game, you do push buttons, but you could also buy all the scenes and outcomes on a DVD and hit play for a similar effect. Read more at OCModShop.
