If Ethan is arrested and interrogated by Blake, Norman has the option of interfering by shoving Blake and then punching him. Blake will then force Norman out of the room by threatening him with his gun. It is against police protocol to carry a sidearm into interrogation, for fear the suspect might get possession of it. This rule is deliberately violated by Blake to demonstrate further corruption. Other examples of disobedience committed by Blake include trespassing on a suspect's property and using excessive violence towards them. This is used to make the player consider Blake a possible suspect in the case. See more »


[Jayden is presenting a talk Origami killer case, with evidence and conclusions he has discovered so far]
Carter Blake: Goddamn it, we're wasting our time with this bullshit! The killer is out there somewhere, and we've gotta get off our asses and find him.
Norman Jaydem: ['reason'] The killer is no ordinary murderer. He is intelligent, organized and methodical. You won't find him by patrolling the streets.

How far will you go for someone you love?
26 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This isn't a game, it's an interactive movie. I enjoy playing video games in my free time, but I have never found one that I have really gotten into. But 2010 brought Heavy Rain, a fantastic masterpiece from Quantic Dream! The psychological journey hits you deep with a mixture of violence, emotion and passion.

The story follows starts with Ethan Mars, who's oldest son is hit and killed by a car one day at the mall Two years later, he has a miserable life, carrying the guilt of his son's death, divorced from his wife and distant from his remaining son, Shaun. But when Shaun is kidnapped by the mysterious Origami Killer, Ethan embarks on a dangerous journey and is forced to partake in five brutal trials in order to gain letters to a hangman that will reveal Shaun's location. But time is short, and Ethan has only four days to find Shaun alive.

As time goes on, Ethan meets Madison Paige, an insomniac photojournalist who crosses paths with the wounded Ethan after the first trial. She helps him recover and soon finds herself conducting her own investigation to find the Origami Killer.

Also on the case is FBI Profiler Norman Jayden, sent in from Washington to help with the Origami Killer case. Teamed up with the aggressive Liutenant Carter Blake and armed with his awesome ARI sunglasses, Jayden slowly becomes obsessed with the investigation, as well as fighting his own personal battle with his addiction to Triptocaine, which could ultimately lead to his death if not controlled.

And last, but not least is Private Detective Scott Shelby, hired by the families of the victims of the Origami Killer. His main suspect his Gordi Kramer, the playboy son of millionaire business man Charles Kramer. Aiding him in his investigation is Lauren Winter, whose son was a recent victim of the Origami Killer.

The four of them are suddenly thrown into the twisted world of the Origami Killer, each battling for their lives against criminals, hit men, and finally, the Origami Killer himself.

Who will survive? You decide..
