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?
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: question is, is it terrible enough to be entertaining? I havent played enough to know yet, but the story so far is total shite. For sure :) (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts These 2 posts explain a little what most likely happened: [url] / [url] (7 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks They were probably pressured to make it honestly (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (8 Hours ago)
