    Heavy Rain Demo On PSN, 1Up Gives Strong Review Grade

    1Up brings news that a Heavy Rain demo is coming to the Playstation Network on February 11th. They also had a chance to review the game and gave it an excellent mark.

    But a game that prides itself on its story is only as good as its writing and actors. The quality and detail of Heavy Rain's sets are truly spectacular -- whether it's a faded wallpaper pattern or dilapidated apartment, this is a world that feels lived-in and genuine. The characters have a similar gritty realness, but occasionally veer into uncanny valley territory due to some inelegant animations. Regardless, the game conveys a subtlety of emotion that very few games have ever succeeded at.
    This is the type of game that just might make me finally buy a PS3. Let's hear what you PS3 owners think of this demo.

    I'll have to try this one out, I know a few people that liked Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit and this looks to be a good break in the routine.
