Default Heavy Rain Demo

I am downloading this right now. I wasn't to sure if I wanted to download this because I am getting this game for sure. And I hate playing these demos and wanting more (which I know is there job) or just sucking big ass.
But I am going to chance it.
Any thoughts on the Heavy Rain Demo?
I will post mine once it finishes down loading and I get a play through a couple times.

It was weird as hell at first. The controls just felt clunky but after a while it all started to flow and I was really impressed. I was pretty unsure about the game before playing the demo but I will probably buy it at some point now.

Really liked this. The voice work ain't oscar worthy, and the controls are a bit odd...but, it all works really well with the design and interactive storytelling to create a particularly atmospheric and immersive experience. Well, that's the impression I got from the demo. Hopefully the whole narrative is good, but I really liked this. Though it's...quite unique...more like a modern old school adventure game, so I imagine it won't be everyone's cup of tea. But man...it's perfect for me, I can't wait for a full game like this.

Awesome. Really look forward to this.

Voice work in English is pure shit. I set it to French with English subs, and it was good!

Just got finished with the demo. Next time through I will have to try setting it to French. Didn't know you could do that.
Controls will take a bit to get used to. But always looking for something a little bit different. Even if not for me, it's good to know that there are some game developers out there trying to make original games. Only about a week and a half now then.

If the voice work in english is pure shit, it makes me wonder what you've been playing.

I didn't think the voice acting was that good. Maybe because the last few games I played, Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Uncharted 2, Batman AA, had exceptional voice work. I'd put this about the same quality as Wets. OK, but nothing stands out.

Everytime I hear MW2 I get a gag reflex.

It's not the most amazing voice work. but pure shit? Someone needs to youtube Star Ocean 4.

Played through it this afternoon - I'm not feeling it. Maybe I should play it again and try something different, but I never had the feeling I was affecting anything; as if, instead of Yahtzee's "press X to not die," it was "press X, O, and R1 at once to get on with the story."

I was thinking of buying this on release (and I hardly ever do that, unless the game is named Fallout 3 ), but the demo's taken me to "wait for the bargain bin."

At the very least, the hooker's voice work WAS pure shit. And yes, I mean that, with no hyperbole. It was terrible. Really really really really bad. It sounded like a bad actress who's not even American trying to pretend to sound like an American.

What have I been playing? Mass Effect 2. Which, by the way, has amazing voice work, except for Miranda, who constantly sounds disinterested and like she's reading stuff off a prompter and just waiting to leave and cash her check.
