What the heck is Heavy Rain is what gamers are asking now a day. Well, Heavy Rain is the Shenmue of 2010. Well, not exactly, but it really does look like it used many ideas from it. Either way, Shenmue was a great game, and one of the best Dreamcast titles ever released, so considering Heavy Rain the 2010 Shenmue, would be a good thing. So now the question is; after watching the many different HR gameplay videos on the net, can Heavy Rain really work in 2010? 2010 is already looking like the year for great Platformers and RPG titles, a year that brings slower pace games than 2009, but never the less, quality and much anticipated titles. The answer would be yes, considering the type of games released this first quarter. But this could also leave Heavy Rain in a “it better be good” situation, or it will get the over hype, “game of the year” award don’t you think?
Heavy Rain vs Shenmue
The more and more footage we see of Heavy Rain, the more and more mixed feedback we see of the game. Some say it will be game of the year for 2010, while others beg to differ, and call it strait out “boring”.
The more and more we play Shenmue, the more and more we say “well ahead of its time”.
