Featuring graphics that border on photorealism, not only is Heavy Rain extremely well-written, but all of your decisions can alter the story in unexpected ways. It could be as subtle as Ethan's son getting in trouble at school because you didn't make him do his homework the night before to one of the four protagonists dying as a result of your actions (and you must carry on with the game without that character's input). This is a neat concept that plays out well. It's also something that's been visually improved upon to drive the impact of each decision home, first on the PS4, and now on the PC, where the game plays out in stunning 4K.

For fans of interactive storytelling in games such as those of the former Telltale Games studio or indeed Quantic Dreams’ other titles recent titles like Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain stands as an outstanding example in its genre. The story is deep, dark, emotional and intense, whilst playing through it is an easy experience for any level of gamer to embark upon. It is a master class in playing out your very own thriller movie, with high-quality voice acting and visuals supporting novelistic prowess by the writers. Less an inherent video game, perhaps, than an outstanding video story, Heavy Rain remains well worth your time and attention; both of which will be well-spent on this title.

Heavy Rain ist nun auch endlich für PC-Spieler zugänglich und das ist eine gute Nachricht, den die Geschichte des Origami-Killers in Kombination mit Ereignissen, die man immer wieder verändern kann, ist auch heute noch sehr spannend. Ist man erst einmal im Bann des Spiels wird es schwer sich davon zu lösen. Man darf hier allerdings keine komplett modernisierte Fassung erwarten und auch auf dem PC sieht man dem Spiel an aus welcher Zeit es kommt. Da hilft auch keine 4K Auflösung weiter. Wer sich darüber im Klaren ist, dass die Dialoge manchmal etwas simpel daherkommen und absolut kein Problem damit hat Heavy Rain eher als passiver Betrachter zu spielen, der bekommt hier jedoch eine Geschichte, die es durchaus wert ist näher beleuchtet zu werden.

Nach all den Jahren fesselt der Thriller immer noch mit seiner spannenden Geschichte, die zwar etwas langsam in Gang kommt, aber zunehmend Fahrt aufnimmt und in einem dramatischen Finale mündet. Die PS3-Herkunft wird zwar an manchen Stellen deutlich und mit der mitunter etwas fummeligen Steuerung ohne Motion-Einbindung muss man sich teilweise ebenfalls arrangieren. Aber insgesamt hat Quantic Dream eine hervorragende PC-Umsetzung dieses Pioniers abgeliefert, die dank höherer Bildrate und besserer Kantenglättung die Konsolen-Vorlagen sogar technisch übertrifft. Wer den Fall rund um den Origami-Killer also bisher noch nicht gelöst hat und dem filmisch geprägten Spielkonzept von David Cage etwas abgewinnen kann, bekommt mit Heavy Rain auch heute noch ein sehr gutes Erlebnis voller Spannung, Dramatik, Überraschungen und Emotionen.

Dolazak Heavy Rain na PC je istorijski potez, te je pred igračima fantastična priča koju mogu iskusiti po prvi put ili iznova samo na drugi način.

Die Spiele von Quantic Dream leben von einer starken Geschichte und ihren Charakteren. Gameplay spielt dabei nur eine untergeordnete Rolle. Darauf müssen sich PC-Spieler einstellen, die bisher absolut keine Erfahrung mit den Playstation-Titeln der französischen Entwickler gemacht haben. Ich kann es aber nur jedem empfehlen, der Heavy Rain noch nicht kennt, sich nicht vom hohen Alter des Titels und der möglicherweise sehr gewöhnungsbedürftigen Steuerung abschrecken zu lassen. Auch heute noch schafft es die packende Story, den Spieler emotional mitzureißen und in die düstere und verregnete Atmosphäre zu ziehen. Wenn das Kartenhaus der Spannung am Ende nur nicht so elendig in sich zusammenbrechen würde.

If you have played Heavy Rain before, I haven’t. So I can’t quite recommend to you whether or not to purchase this game because of any differences it may have had between console and PC. What I can tell you, is that it is an incredibly jarring, emotionally gutting game with beautiful music that sinks its teeth into you and refuses to let go until it reels back with a piece of your heart. If like me, you haven’t had the chance to play it before now, definitely give it a shot. You won’t regret it. You can pick it up on the Epic Games store for around $20.

If you are a fan of interactive storytelling or just love a good mystery, Heavy Rain can still deliver an enjoyable experience despite a few flaws.

As a console game ported to PC, it’s best played with a controller, but the range of graphical settings available are a definite boon. Whether you've never played Heavy Rain before or are a fan of the game wanting to experience it yet again, there’s no finer way if you have a decent PC. Otherwise, maybe stick to the PS4 version.

Toparlamak gerekirse oyun tarihinin en ses getiren yapımlarından biri olan Heavy Rain, PC'de gayet iyi çalışıyor. Eğer PC oyuncusuysanız, Origami katilinin izini sürdüğümüz bu soluksuz macerayı şiddetle tavsiye ediyorum. Heavy Rain, üzerinden yıllar geçmiş olmasına rağmen oldukça iyi yaşlanmış bir oyun. İnteraktif film tadındaki Heavy Rain türü seven oyuncular için vazgeçilmez bir oyun. Türe uzak oyuncular için ise müthiş bir başlangıç.

Other than that, however, the PC version runs smoothly, has the same gripping narrative, the same intense and satisfying gameplay, and the same intriguing cast of characters, but should you play it we recommend you do so with a controller because using a mouse and keyboard isn't the best way to experience this thrilling adventure.

Despite having some awkward control quirks while playing with a mouse and keyboard, the PC version of Heavy Rain is just as solid as the PlayStation 4 re-release. Both versions look superior to the PS3 original, but still have a few issues that make none of them the definitive way to play David Cage’s best title. The important distinction here is that this is now playable outside of the PlayStation ecosystem for the first time ever, so it’s being introduced to a new audience. For them, it’s a totally serviceable way to track down the Origami, Origammy, and Origarmy Killer.

Heavy Rain is poorly written and not as smart as it thinks it is, but has a genuine sense of choice and consequence.

Nine years later, Heavy Rain’s flaws have only become more pronounced. Even so, strong narrative design can’t be denied, and it’s just enough to ease the pain caused by the game’s more outrageous blunders.
