Good "game" in the traditional sense? No.

Good interactive fiction that effectively draws you in? Yes. As long as no one has spoiled any important details for you.

That said, I think it has been superseded by Walking Dead. Stronger writing, consistent acting, and good pacing.

Also recommended: LA Noire, Spec Ops: The Line

was more of an interactive movie for me
ill admit i skip through the story of about 90% of games i play (hey i play to actually be the character) but this is one of the few stories that has had me intersted from start to finish. definitely worth the playthrough

If you liked the Walking Dead game, then you'll love Heavy Rain

 

It's a game where the story is everything. Gameplay, not so much. Lots of wandering around looking at things and quick-time events.

 

But the story is great enough to ignore those things if youre not a fan of them.

 

And who the actual killer is, I'm sure catches 99% of the people off guard. It's that good of a mystery.

 

And if youre a trophy hunter, you need to play it like 2-3 times to get all the trophies, because story changing events are trophies, and you need to go through the story multiple times with each outcomes to get them all
