Molyneux is big fan of Heavy Rain

Reckons it's "the future of videogames".

Never mind Fable III - Peter Molyneux thinks PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain is where it's at when it comes to next-gen entertainment.

"I recommend anyone who wants to start to see the first glimpses of the future of videogames to go out and buy it," he told Joystiq, adding that he reckons Heavy Rain is "absolutely brilliant".

"Personally, I could not bring myself to play more than 90 minutes, because the world that was there was so dark and so emotionally involving I felt emotionally beaten up," Molyneux said.

"But there's no question in my mind that games like Heavy Rain - games that have a new fidelity in the way that they present their experiences, obviously made with cinematography and motion capture in mind - can really show the way forward to a new form of entertainment, which is evolving the story and choices and consequences."

Molyneux said he takes his hat off to Quantic Dream, not least because of the "revolutionary" nature of Heavy Rain and its use of quick-time events.

"Us designers were just laughing because we thought quick-time was dead, but that really was part of the drama of Heavy Rain," he stated.

Molyneux isn't the only one who's a fan of Cage David's opus - read Tom's review to find out why he reckons it's a 9/10.
