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.
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.
@GriftGFX: trends. 2D fighters was all the rage, then 3D fighters took over, now it switched back to 2D fighters. It'll switch again. (41 minutes ago)
There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (54 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: heehee, actually because my team of Kilik & Sophitia are feared through the lands for their unbeatable combos. It is known. ^_^ (1 Hour ago)
@Loakum: I'm sure it's dumb luck that you like it :P (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: it's not often I agree with you, but you speak the truth. Soulcalibur 6 is gonna be amazing. (3 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Quake is great doing 100% secret runs. (5 Hours ago)
I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (6 Hours ago)
