Did You Know?


Playable scenes where Ethan would have to navigate through nightmares in known locations while completely submerged through water, making it clear to the player of what Ethan's blackouts were like. Ethan's blackouts were also explained as being brought on by the Origami Killer, who had established a mental connection to Ethan at the event of his son's death. It was cut for pacing reasons, and because the cause gave a supernatural tone the game developers didn't want. There is still a reference in the final version of the game by Ethan's psychologist that he was suffering from nightmares of drowning. See more »


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 »

Best PS3 game of 2010, hands down.
10 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When 10 years from now someone looks back at the past decade in gaming, one ps3 game stands out...Heavy Rain. A choose-your-own adventure type of game, this film-noir interactive drama centers around the Origami Killer, who spies on kids and leaves an origami on their trail. You play the role of various characters. It's not easy or hard. It's how you play the game. The game will end quickly if all of the main characters die if you choose different paths. The graphics are pretty good, the sound excellent (minor audio glitches), and the controls are really excellent. Trophies are also good as you can get plenty of them to level up your trophy profile. Definitely worth getting it for $60. Highly recommended.
