Heavy Rain User Reviews
In Heavy Rain you don’t watch the story – you play it. The dynamic narrative unfolds through the players actions - not cut scenes - and every action has a consequence. The choices you make and the way you interact with other characters have repercussions throughout the storyline. With unprecedented responsibility over the fates of the game’s characters, players will find Heavy Rain an emotional experience unlike any other. It dares to tackle subject matter and themes rarely touched upon in video games, making it a genuinely mature game for a new world of adult gamers.

It was originally intended to show full-frontal nudity of Ethan, likely during the shower scene at the start of the game. This was cut from the final release of the game.
There are three points during the game which display Madison with some degree of nudity -- a shower scene in her apartment, a stripping scene at the Blue Lagoon, and a potential sex scene with Ethan Mars. Only her breasts and buttocks are shown. There is also a glitch where she, occasionally, will accidentally load her naked model.
In the "Covered Market" chapter, Norman Jayden's actor, Leon Ockenden, actually kicked over one of the motion capture cameras. This is only visible when failing to jump over some boxes in the chase scene.
The soundtrack was recorded by a full orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London.
All four characters have different colored eyes: Scott has hazel, Ethan has blue, Norman has green, and Madison has brown
All playable characters display a physical or mental illness: Ethan's blackouts, PTSD and agoraphobia, Scott's asthma, Norman's addiction to Triptocaine and Madison's insomnia.
90 actors were cast for the game, which uses motion capture to produce life-like animation.

The apartment that Ethan is moving into at the end of the game is the same apartment that was lived in by the hero of David Cage's last "interactive drama" game Indigo Prophecy (2005). Ethan even makes a funny comment about "a friend" helping him get it. That friend is Lucas Kane from the other game.
