Bleszinski: Heavy Rain has “hideous” children [Update]

Update: This was a “joke,” according to the man himself.

Original: Heavy Rain has received praise from many developers and critics recently, however one particular big name isn’t especially enamoured with the game’s children.

Speaking in an interview with GameReactor, Gears of War boss Cliff Bleszinski said that he loves the game; but he does have one particular dislike.

“Yes, [Heavy Rain] really grows on me. But, even if I feel it’s a really good game, I don’t think they have done enough to avoid the ‘uncanny valley’ problems,” he said.

“The children in the game are some of the most hideous I have seen. Ever.

“But the game has really grabbed me and the scene early on where you are at the shopping mall trying to find your kid is very effective.”

Perhaps creating less revolting children is something Quantic Dream can add to the list of improvements for its next game.

Heavy Rain was released in February, exclusively to PS3.
