Heavy Rain Move Edition is a refreshingly different experience. While exploring the characters' lives, you can listen to their thoughts and then speak or act - and each required action is context sensitive, meaning it corresponds to an on-screen prompt, which can range from throwing a boomerang to changing a baby's nappy. It's a very intuitive and well thought out control system, made all the more exciting during moments of high drama or physical conflict, which requires keen observation, sharp reflexes and good judgement to perform the correct actions as they flash on the screen.
Because you can never tell what will happen next, you can't afford to take your hands off the PS Move motion controller during any part of Heavy Rain Move Edition's gripping story. There's a very real sense of menace to the characters' situations, leaving you exhilarated and rewarded when you succeed and breathlessly stunned when you fail. Heavy Rain Move Edition feels like nothing else out there - and you play a vital role in unlocking that unique experience.
A moving experience
Heavy Rain Move Edition is fully playable with a Wireless controller, using the Classic controls from the original Heavy Rain - although with PlayStation Move, the game's intense and engaging gameplay becomes even more compelling. Heavy Rain Move Edition is played using a PlayStation Move motion controller to complete actions and a PlayStation Move navigation controller or Wireless Controller to move your character. Whether it's negotiating a deadly broken glass floored maze, fighting off a fearsome aggressor or just taking a shave, each motion has you performing an equivalent movement using the PS Move motion controller.
It's a superb way to draw you deeper into Heavy Rain Move Edition's thrilling journey through the dark recesses of the human condition. Action sequences are powerful and unique experiences that leave you breathless with excitement, while the quieter, more sedate scenes bring you closer to the characters as you really feel part of their lives.
The stakes are even higher to find the Origami Killer with PlayStation Move. Can you take the pressure of Heavy Rain Move Edition?
