Heavy Rain (PS3)

Now this was a step in the right direction for me - although a sluggish and annoying beginning (annoying because I didn't find the control system intuitive, and it caused problems later on) - the basic conceit for this 'game' is fascinating, and I felt it worked well. Essentially, you play different characters in what is essentially a 'track down a serial killer' movie - and it works. I've only played it through fully once - and to be honest I'll probably not bother playing through alternative timelines, I'll just look them up on the web - but as a taster of the way the technology is moving, this was absorbing, characterful and exciting. Recommended for the more cerebral game player.

  1. I quite enjoyed playing Fahrenheit on the PC (Heavy Rain is its spiritual sequal).

    Dragon Age: Origins is worth a look too.
