Revolution’s Charles Cecil has told MCV he found Quantic opus Heavy Rain to be shy of “absolute genius”.

“Half way through I thought it was a work of absolute genius,” said the Broken Sword mastermind.

“When I finished it, I still thought it was a work of genius but deeply flawed. There’s a lot of questions it asks, and I think some of those are answered really well, and others are flawed.

“But I really admire David Cage, his team and the work they have done. I think it’s good for the adventure game, I think it’s good for the industry overall.”

What’s the flawed bit? Cecil was “cagey” in his response. We should be on TV.

“Without spoiling anything, you discover something at the end that’s incredibly important about one of the characters you’ve been playing, which creates an incredible disconnect between the audience and the character – and I think that is deeply, deeply flawed,” he said.
