    Yeah, I got used to it for the most part. There are still times where I'll get stuck just trying to exit a room though.

    I'm loving the Silence Of The Lambs-esque score, when you are playing the fat detective.

            Im NOT giving any spoilers.

            Just finished the game and that was a satisfying ending. It wasnt over in 11 seconds, it explained everything and they didnt pull the fucking "to be continued card" like most games do. And usually bad, cliche, short endings are what ruin games for me. Even batman arkahm asylum I really enjoyed but its crappy ending left a bad taste in my mouth, like I just had a nice steak meal, with a salad, bake potato, a beer and some ice tea and for desert I was giving a hot brownie with ice creme on it but the brownie was really a piece of shit.

            I really enjoyed the game. Going to play something else but Im coming back to it soon to play it through again so I can see the other versions of the game when I make different choices. Judging by how it went when I played it you could play it maybe 3 times and get a fairly different game each time depending on what you did.

            After beating it I can say this game was definitely worth my money and its got replay value because you lock or unlock entire segments based on your actions and when you change the actions of all your characters then you change the overall game alot.

              but i am interested in playing it, but my money is tied up in FF13, GOW3, Red Dead, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake and blu-rays
              Sorry man, but most of those games aren't going to be more than 10-15 hours of gameplay. Specially GOW3, Splinter Cell, and Alan Wake. I will be buying these also.

              But aside from that, there's no way that a game like Heavy Rain is only 8 hours of game play, because it's virtually impossible to complete every scenario, with every character in one play through. This is simply a different type of game.

                I'm gonna have to break away from achievement whoring on 360 to play this. Everything i've read sounds pretty positive. I was gonna get Uncharted 2, but that might just have to wait.

                  Oh man, they missed a golden oppourtunity for what would've been an awesome cameo.

                  [SPOILER]I don't think I'm the only one who was thinking "Boogie Nights" during the chase in the house with that shotgun wielding dealer. If only they could've got Alfred Molina for that scene. [/SPOILER]

                  This game is really intense for the most part, but I can't help but feel they made all of Shelby's portions, the "break" missions in the game. All of the other characters, are busy getting into shootouts, car chases, and tense situation after tense situation. Shelby is too busy changing diapers, and making scrambled eggs, to get into any interesting shit. If the main characters can die, he's goes the first chance I get.

                    Found this a minute ago and thought I should pass it along to you guys in case it ends up happening to you.

                    "Users have been reporting technical issues with Heavy Rain.

                    A thread on the official forum has shown that the game will freeze for unexpected periods of time and corrupt auto-save files.

                    Community manager Sam_Protaganist said: "We're currently trying to establish any common factors for people who are experiencing game freezing so if you are having trouble please be as thorough as possible with regards to your PS3 setup."

                    Users have been advised not to switch off the PlayStation during blank screens but to wait five minutes after a crash to ensure that game states save properly."

                      That is no lie. The game has only frozen on me once, but it was during an auto-save, in between missions.

                      If your HD light isn't flashing during the load screens, just hit reset.

                        Thats scary. I don't own a PC and am always online via Ps3. I have CONSTANT freezing issues, especially with videos on Youtube, Google, etc. where i am forced to get up and reboot the system. I've never encountered any hard drive issues though (knock on wood).

                          Just finished the game. BEWARE OF BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!!!!! I MEAN FUCKING BIG!!!

                          Can't say you weren't warned.

                          [SPOILER]I liked the reasonings behind the "trials", but I did not buy for a second that Shelby was the killer. It just didn't add up. I guess in a videogame, it's harder to pull the rug from underneath the audience. It's just hearing Shelby's inner monologue, really clashes with the idea that he is the killer.

                          Another part that I thought was kind of a cheat, was when you fight Shelby in disguise at the club. Shelby is one fat fuck, and that guy was nowhere near Shelby's heft. I was actually suspecting all of the characters, and that scene actually made me scratch Shelby off the list. It also didn't make much sense that he was one of, if not the head of that shady organization.

                          Nobody died, except for Lauren(who I'm sure Shelby would've ended up killing anyway). In my chapter section, it reads 7 chapters, but looks like there is room for another. I'm guessing depending on the decisions you make, the game could stretch out significantly longer. Has anyone reached past Chapter 7.

                          Oh, and what was up with the mini holographic tanks at the end, with Jayden? Still scratching my head over that one.[/SPOILER]

                          Great game, that I will revisit multiple times.

                          On a side note, boy does that PS3 trophy system suck. I was actually beginning to like it, when I started unlocking some silver trophies. I go to look what I have left to get under the trophy section of the PS3, and every trophy I have yet to get, is left a mystery. What am I supposed to do, guess what the developers want me to do? Fucking stupid.

                            Reminds me of all the early 360 games where the secret achievements were just mission based ones. I'll post the list of Trophies for the game & the way to get them, in spoiler tags though, since apparently they can reveal plot points in the game. If people want me to remove the spoiler tags for easy viewing just say the word, don't want to ruin anything for anyone.

                              I'm annoyed.
                              The game is freezing on me too, and even worse sometimes the sound cuts out.
                              I havent checked with my other games or BR discs but I HIGHLY doubt my PS3 is dying on me seeing as I don't overuse the thing. It only began to occur from the first crime scene onwards.... I am so fucking annoyed.

                                That bad eh? What model do you have? I've heard people having more problems with the game on the older models.

                                This might be a stupid question, but have you updated your system lately? I only ask, because I used mine right out of the box, with no internet connection, and games were freezing all over the place. I updated, and the problem was solved. Maybe it's something simple like that.
