The game is supposed to be set in the United States, yet Ann Sheppard's hospital room has "Type-G" wall-sockets next to her bed. These sockets are meant for 220-240V/50Hz European voltage, and would never be found in an American hospital. See more »


Captain Perry: [from trailer] The body of Jeremy Bowles was found this morning on a patch of wasteland in the east end at about 6:30 A.M. Five days after he was reported missing. An autopsy will be conducted tomorrow to determine the exact cause of death, but going from first indications, it would seem that he drowned. The state in which the body was found suggests the methodology of the origami killer.

User Reviews

Not so heavy
21 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

(Pros) +Sound effects +Choices that matter +Fluid NPC movements +Lighting +Soundtrack +Multiple outcomes +Atmosphere +Rain

(Cons) -Nerve-wracking voice acting, especially the children's -Cheesy storytelling -Weak story -Full of clichés -Unnecessary scenes -Irrational changes in behavior of some of the characters -Scenes involving children are extremely cheesy and unrealistic -Annoying dialogues -Controls -Generic ending/credits music, which was really disappointing compared to rest of the soundtracks. -Did I mention the voice acting is unbelievably terrible?

In the end, Heavy Rain isn't at all what it pretends to be.
