HEAVY RAIN REVIEW

I wake up in a decrepit alleyway with my head pounding and not a single recollection of how I got there. I am only concious of one fact: I am in another man's body. This man's:
The previous owner of this body leaves me with only one hint before disappearing into another plane of existence: “To begin your investigation, start at my apartment.”
I follow his lead, I step into the apartment, and Kayl's wife pulls a gun on me, mistaking me for an intruder. Instead of explaining to her I am a stranger inhabiting her husband's body, I tell her I have amnesia. I don't know this woman, so I figured I'd play my cards close to my chest.
She vomits out a clinically detailed account of what’s happened the week I have been missing, says “I’m so glad to have you back Kay'l,” and immediately returns to the bedroom. My wife just went to take a nap ten seconds after I told her I have amnesia. I couldn't believe my eyes. Surely she had more to say. Desperate for more information I follow her.
The moment I enter the room, she walks out the shower door in her underwear, gets on top of the bed, and poses like a Playboy covergirl. Her eyes wide open, staring dead at the surface of the matress.
I started to feel sick. I approached her cautiously. I knew what I was about to walk into, but part of me still held onto some hope. Oh, how naive I was. I pressed the interact button, hoping, praying with every fiber of my being, that my fears weren’t true.NEXT PAGE
