Fahrenhiet/Indigo Prophecy (Xbox, PC, PS2) is a game that is very hard to review without spoling some mayor-plots. However, i will try to divide it into two sections- One spolier-free, and one with spoliers. For now it will contain some spoilers.

...No.... What have I done?

You start of as Lucas Kane, an ordinary man with an ordinary life. He works, pays his taxes and try to not make much noise. For some reason however, Lucas has just killed a man. Yes, YOU killed a man, in a public diner' restroom. You know that there's a policeman in the diner, so you have to work quick. If, and how you manage to get away is up to you. Everything in this game is based upon the choices you make. As you can imagine, you are pretty fucked up now. Killed a man, escaped the police and gotta go to work. In this game you have to shower, piss, eat and sleep. If you don't take care of your character, he or she, will give up. Commit suicide, or whatever. You have a guage that shows how you character feel - watch it closely.
The funny thing is, when you are busy being Lucas and cleaning up after yourself, you will later be the cops trying to catch Lucas. Great, huh!

Why me? Why did they choose me

You will indeed find out that it was not you that killed that man in that diner. You were... possesed. All you have to do now is find out who is possesing you and why. You need to find the Indigo Child. And... try not to die, okay? You will have flashbacks which will determine how the game will end. Everything you do will change the story.

Gameplay


The cameras are pretty good, and well, everything is good. Everything exept the "action" scenes. You have to tilt the thumbsticks in the righ direction and press the L, R fast enough. Besides that, its gold.

Comments

Well, i payed the PAL version of Fahrenheit. The NTSC can be named "Indigo prophecy" and is a little more sensored. Ex. (Read at own risk) in PAL, if done correctly, you get to fuck two times. NASTY!

Graphics: 5/10
Sound: 7/10
Story: 10/10
Controls: 5/10
Replay value: 8/10

The camera is the second worst part of the whole game. The worst part is the controls.

In truth, it is the controls that drag the camera down.... Play it and you'll understand. Otherwise, it is a good game.

Cameras are really bad in Indigo Prophecy, especially in the cinematic multi-screen sections. The graveyard for example, had me walking on the spot for 20 seconds before I realised I had come to a dead end. Also, the controls have a nasty habit of dislocating when the camera switches. One minute it's fine, then the camera switches and everything fucks up. I push right on the stick and Lucas walks down. Down, and he walks left. Not very good at all sad.gif

Don't get me wrong, the game is pretty good, but it has a hell of a lot of problems, too.

8/10 sounds about right (which is very impressive considering it has to rise above all it's faults)

I could imagine the pc-version being the worst. Using the numpad in action scenes.

In my opinion, you should try it.

It is one of the best games on the Xbox. The controls might be bad and the camera is a pain in the ass but overall, the story rocks and I really did enjoy the fact that anything you do changes the way the game plays through until the end.

personally i thought it was EXCELLENT, the camera is really nice for what it's for. i mean you can move around freely at any point ur playing. sure it can be aggervating but i've never ran into an area and done somthing REALLY bad b/c of the camera.

there's been "playable movies" in the past, but NOTHING like this. tho the graphics need much work, they're very good considering somthings but overall need some big polish at least.

very fun and a GREAT story, u'll either love or hate it, i love it biggrin.gif

It has a different approach to things, I like the game. I just got it last night and got pulled into the story very quickly. Sure, the graphics arent the best but damn, the story makes up for it ten times over.

id have to say honestly this is one of the best games ive played in quite a while the only thing was the ending was quite disapointing it seems like after a certain point they ran out of development funding or something and had to ship it.... first 3/4ths of the game = awsome last 1/4 is quite disapointing... the end was easyer then most of the game....

I played this game start to finish and thought it sucked. I like adventures and have played many, but this was like a rail shooter. Everything is so guided that you don't feel like you are playing a game, more like watching a Machima film. The button sequence mini-games really blow - it's like they realized there was no real challenge or "game" to play, so they added Dance-Dance Revolution to attempt to inject some game play. Overall I'd recommend this game only if you have played every single adventure for the XBox and badly need to play just one more. It's bottom of the barrel as far as Xbox games go.
