A Killer Game Worth Playing

Heavy Rain is a game about a father in search of his son who was kidnap by the Origami Killer. He has help from his friends but its not an easy task as everyone they meet is a suspect. The story of this game is very good. The graphics are fantastic and the gameplay is not too bad. Theres a DLC that's worth getting too. Although good and one of the best game to come out, this game is not for children because this game has a lot of swearing, some sex scene and nudity. Also theres a lot of violent scene and drug use. This game is not intended for children, parental guidance is strictly recommended.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
