Heavy Rain joins such titles as Darksiders, Dante's Inferno and God of War. This moral crusade will, of course, just turn ordinary gamers into criminals as they find another means to get hold of the games. Still, if they want to do it the hard way, that's up to them.
The sex scene isn't all that good, anyway.
