Games that use rain

Almost as the title says.

What games on the 360 would you say use rain well to create atmosphere? Looking at getting a couple of games in the next couple of days and really feel the need for some good atmospheric rain.

Deadly Premonition is the correct answer.

Got it, played it, loved it but only just finished it again which is sort of what got me to make this topic.

Red Dead Redemption and GTAIV both have amazing rain.

You should buy Beyond Good and Evil HD. Seriously, please?

Yeah, RDR and GTAIV for sure, and add Left 4 Dead 2.

Anything where most of the game is set on a rainy day? That's what I liked about the old GTAs, the cheats where you could make it rain all the time.

Aliens vs Predator makes incredible use of rain in the DLC survival map called Tempest. I think it's the only map in the whole damn game to feature any form of abnormal weather whatsoever. But as you progress through the waves of aliens as a colonial marine, the rain outside the compound area you're defending gets heavier to the point where in the later stages you can barely see a few feet out, let alone an approaching alien until 10 of them are right on top of you. Very gritty and atmospheric map. I wouldn't say it's worth the full price of the game, but it's certainly one of its stronger points.

Silent Hill: Downpour, if it ever comes out this year.

Heavy Rain? lol

Man I wish I could do that in every game.

Times Shift
Heavy Rain (PS3)
Gears of War
God of War 3 (PS3)

They're the main ones I can think of. Just Cause 2 has some amazing thunder storms, and MGS2 HD is coming out soon, and that game has the best stormy weather scene ever IMO.

Another scene that stands out is the rain in ICO. That's due out in HD soon too (PS3 only).
