The true value of a game is measured by a few elements such as gameplay mechanics, graphics, replay value, etc… In most cases, games “fall short of the glory” because they are deficient in one or more areas previously mentioned. In order to compensate for their shortcomings in addition to making a profit, developers often become magicians by using “smoke and mirrors” to pull the wool over gamers eyes. An example of this would be the common hysterical shock value used in below average games such as X-men Origins: Wolverine, Rogue Warrior etc…

Nevertheless, it pains me to say that developer Quantic Dream is a guilty party when it comes to the overcompensation. With their highly anticipated game beginning to surface, Heavy Rain, it becomes very evident that their graphics are the only focus and selling points of this game. It would be safe to say that Heavy Rain is the true definition of “Smoke and Mirrors”

To begin with, it is without a shadow of doubt that Heavy Rain delivers a graphical masterpiece but that’s where it ends. What about the gameplay? From the little we have seen of this game, QTE (Quick Time Events) seems to be only way to control this game. Now do not get me wrong, QTE’s are a great compliment to any game but when it is the main element in a game it takes away from the true essence of gaming. Although it does give the game more of theatrical feel but it seems that becoming more theatrical is the developers main objective.

Furthermore, according to the Gameinformer Magazine (issue 195) Quantic Dream stated that Heavy Rain will cap at 8-10 hours of play. Now for a game that is not highly anticipated or a movie based video game, this would be an acceptable amount hours of gameplay. Nevertheless, it seems as if Quantic Dream was mostly concerned with beguiling gamers with an attractive graphical masterpiece rather than supplying gamers with an overall great gaming experience.

Overall, Quantic Dreams is taking a short cut with their upcoming release. With the suffering economy it is very understandable that developers/publishers would do what it takes to generate revenue but it should not be at the expense of true gaming.

this guy must be the one person in the world who has not seen all the gameplay footage in the past year. think indigo prophecy with a longer story better mechanics and amazing graphics. I cant see where this guy is coming from the quick time is used yes but even in the trailer it is shown you walk with the left stick camera is the right l1 brings up your thoughts and the right stick will open doors and etc just like indigo prophecy. but hey to each they own

Heavy Rain seems damn overrated. I'm glad someone else has the balls to call them on it.

I really don't see the hype with this game. It's pretty and? Indigo Prophecy had a really small following, and out side of the handful of fans that know about the game like T.O. the casual gamer is really just looking at the visuals and saying "I must have that! It looks f***ing dope!" I don't see this game moving substantial units. That's not to say that it won't be good, but I think the smoke and mirrors reference to this game is pretty accurate. They haven't shown nearly enough gameplay and the casual gamer (who you need to move serious units) knows nothing but the fact that the game looks damn good. k!llzone had disappointing numbers and that was a shooter. I can't see this game performing well at retail. I hope it does though.

I feel the same way! I think it'll get it's props when it gets reviewed a while after the game drops. I can't wait for Heavy Rain though. I really think it will be underrated when it drops...

We'll see. I think there's a core audience for this game. I don't think it will appeal to the masses. What about it is going to make it succeed where IP did not?

Yeah, Indigo Prophecy was dope...so was Omicron....i think both games were revolutionary in their own rights

but I gotta say that Mirrors Edge is more of a smoke and mirrors game!

Over on the PlayStation.Blog.Europe, they’ve got a great Heavy Rain interview with Guillaume de Fondaumiere, Executive Producer and CEO at Quantic Dream. Guillaume talks in-depth about how the story relates to the four playable characters, and provides much more insight into the psychological thriller. Enjoy!
