  1. But just keeping the player's attention is not enough to make a great game, and the tragedy of Indigo is that it so wants to be one.
  2. The term 'movie game' has been overused, but this unique offering comes closer than most.
  3. Whatever the future may hold though, Fahrenheit is itself a compelling, truly adult adventure of rare literary and filmic qualities, and that’s more than enough to satisfy for now.
  4. Anyone should be able this game in about 10 hours or so. Other than that, this game is perfect.
  5. It's about halfway through Fahrenheit that the wheels start to wobble. The game begins to veer away from its complex murder-mystery beginnings into the realm of pure fantasy, with a final chapter that can be hard to stomach.

    This game is quite overrated. I have to agree with the minority on this one. I had really high hopes for the game but when I got it home I This game is quite overrated. I have to agree with the minority on this one. I had really high hopes for the game but when I got it home I was completely dissapointed. I just want to warn people to not waste their money. Rent this first. I think it must be an acquired taste. Full Review »

    I love the storyline, it kept me guessing what was coming next. The minigame portions involve good reflexes. The cinematics were beutiful, I love the storyline, it kept me guessing what was coming next. The minigame portions involve good reflexes. The cinematics were beutiful, But the only problem I had was it was too short. I finished the game with the good ending and unlocked all the bonus stuff in about 7 hours of gameplay. Full Review »
