Lots of fun!
26 July 2011 | by RiceBunnyxSee all my reviews

I loved Heavy Rain so much, and I was thrilled when Quantic Dream announced the first DLC. I downloaded it immediately and I have to say, it is a fabulous addition! Ther story takes place several years before Heavy Rain, and Madison Paige is on her way to Leland White's house, suspecting he is the Origami Killer. Leland isn't home, so Madison decides to sneak in and look around. The house is filled with stiffed animals due to Leland's job as a taxidermist, which disturbs Madison, but that is the least of her worries when she finds the evidence of Leland's gruesome hobby. She tries to leave, but at that moment, Leland arrives home. Trapped, Madison must fight for her life against the ruthless Leland White.

I played this game at least ten times in the day I got it and many times since, and I am still not bored of it. I was surprised to see the rating for it against Heavy Rain's, but like Heavy Rain, this is a love it or hate it game.

If you liked Heavy Rain, go for it! If you didn't, then you still might enjoy it.
