The short format puts increased focus on your decisions. Stealth and misdirection made my escape attempt surprisingly successful. The control response was smooth, but, most importantly, correct — strengthened by a pre mediated escape route. Players can also confront Mr. White for different results.
This shorten episodic experience obviously does not incorporate the multiple choice adaptations and various plotlines in the main game, Heavy Rain, but presents a high quality graphic experience for $4.99. Players can replay the episode from three different progressive plot points – a great convenience option from considerate developers.
Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode One - The Taxidermist is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB for blood, intense violence, nudity, and strong language.
