Many PlayStation 3 owners put Heavy Rain near the top of their "most anticipated" lists, which is why any fresh look at the gameplay is welcome. While it's true that the action in this game will be dictated by QTEs, you have to remember that combat is hardly the focus. This is almost entirely story-based and regardless of how things turn out, the plot will continue forward. Take this scene, for example. Win or lose, the story takes a certain path, which means playing through the game several times will likely result in several completely difference experiences. You know, provided you're not failing in all the same areas.
