We reviewed rain

We reviewed rain

Last week felt like summer in France, but autumn is now back, which is a nice coincidence as rain will be released tomorrow on Playstation Network. After being able to play the first 3 chapters last month, we could finish the game a few days ago and now is the time to find out what we thought about it. As usual, you can read our verdict inside and check out our gameplay videos.



Verdict


Thanks to its mesmerizing soundtrack, its poetic visual style and its simple but solid gameplay mechanics, rain will undoubtedly move those of you who enjoyed such titles as Journey, Limbo or even Brothers: A Tale of Two sons more recently. Much like these game, the experience isn't very long but there is no way we can hold a grudge against it. It's a short shower of rain we're given but it is so much more invigorating than most of the media storms we often get in the video game industry. A diamond to add in the list of many memorable exclusives released on PS3, which still has a lot of beautiful stories to tell at the dawn of next generation.

About the game


What's up?
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Red dead redemption 2 could be a huge plus for Scorpio because it wont be on pc (1 minute ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 But with how MS is moving now, I think I'd much rather just get their games (what few there seem to be) on PC. I think it's an improvement overall since it grows the base, but Scorpio itself dunno. (10 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 Honestly with 4K blu-ray alone (Scorpio should have it as One S does) puts it miles ahead of the Pro to me. VR and performance that should have been optimized on reg PS4 to begin with isn't appealing. (11 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 For MS im sure state of decay 2 is gonna be good but sea of thieves and Crackdown 3 could go either way (12 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 And Sony no longer having the power advantage so they need to rely on their exclusives like they used to with ps3 (14 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 This E3 is gonna be really interesting with MS having the better hardware but need to prove they have a variety of big exclusive games as well... (15 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i would think MS started work on scorpio before the ps4pro talk started (44 minutes ago)
