Only dipped into Heavy Rain as it arrived same time as Black Ops and was not overly impressed. However last night i spent some time with it.

Now i am a huge fan. I could not stop playing. I am only half way through but already cannot wait to play from the begining again.

I really hope they make another one as i cant see myself playing it more than 3 times through.

In summary.......highly recommended!!

cheers

Thats an Awsome Game! And What an Ending!
Shame its quite short.

Is that the game that Play did not deliver to you?.
I had the same problem, with NHL 11 ordered 2 month ago, Didnt come in 1 month so i had to send them a signed form, Still waiting. I am wondering if it will come at all.

Anyone had experience with this?

I think there are multiple endings (and variations in the story lines), I need to play it through a few times more too.

There are up to 9 ending, however one constant remains the same, But I dont want to spoil anything.

The game is Outstanding, I hope there will be more of this genre.

Yeah my temptation to talk about certain chapters on this thread is grating me.........even when i look up the hidden trophies online, i only look as far as i have played. The game would not be as enjoyable without the 'what next' excitement.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

played ACB for a couple of hours last night. It begins with a lot of cut scenes etc very similar to Heavy Rain in a lot of ways. Then it starts to die down and proper gameplay starts. Bit of a slow beginning really.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Complete waste of time ordering GT5 from Amazon.co.uk. Its been over a week since they dispatched, and still nothing in my postbox. I was in France over the weekend and it was being sold for 50 in Saturn, which is only a few more than what I paid

Normally with play.com to Switzerland it takes 10 days.

So your 2 games should arrive wed/thurs this week.

I have ordered about 40 items from play.com in the last year and only 1 item (Heavy Rain) never showed up.

Having said that i pre-ordred AC:B a couple of months ago (for the online beta testing) and they say it was sent on 16/11/10........still not here.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

GT5 arrived from Amazon yesterday, no tax to pay <phew >.
It took about 3/4 hour (update + installation) before I could have my first race. I've not exactly been blown away to be honest, its mainly the awful menus, slow load times, overwhelming choice of tweaks, wallpapers, photos etc.. and the long ladder you have to climb in crappy cars to get to the really exotic metal. Will keep at it, but from what I've read, Sony really pushed Polyphony to release this in time for Christmas, even thought its still work in progress. The author has promised plenty more updates, but I think for a full price game thats pretty cheeky.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Finally completed UC2 on normal last night, now I have to go back and find the 80-odd treasures I missed , and maybe have a bash at it on Hard (though I don't fancy my chances much).

I have only started using play.com in the last few months, mainly to get special editions of things in English. The SOONEST anything has ever come, has been 12 days...am waiting on AC:B at the moment - luckily I have Fallout NV to keep me busy (after waiting 15 days for it to arrive!!).

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

FIFA 11 arrived yesterday and my wife had to stump up 25.- for it . I thought Play.com sent goods in such a way that import duty was not levied?

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Brotherhood is amazing! It's always a challenge to appeal to/train up first timers while still appealing to people who finished the prequel days earlier. However after the first hour or so, you're really into it. Some things are different like the climbing mechanism (there's no "jump-climb" - so I died a few times trying to do it) but most of it is just a slicker "extension pack" of ACII. The fight action is a lot smoother with Ezio being a "better" fighter achieving quicker kills, but with far greater numbers of opponents making for a lot of true melees. Updates to follow.
