Haunted by strange visions, he must keep one step ahead of the police to find out what is happening to him. Inspector Carla Valenti and her teammate agent Tyler Miles are in charge of the investigation. A series of disturbing clues projects them into a world they had never even dreamed of.

Indigo Prophecy Gameplay Movie 6

  1. A completely engrossing game, designed for the patience of adult players, that will stand up to an almost infinite number of sessions. It’s a technically marvellous achievement by David Cage.
  2. Indigo Prophecy may not have the technical backings of a winner with its dated graphics and strange control scheme, but everything else screams classic.
  3. The gritty atmosphere, gripping action sequences, and incredible central narrative all mix beautifully to provide many hours of great gameplay. The ‘every action has a consequence’ mechanic means that the game offers up considerable replay value.
  4. A breath of fresh air in the adventure gaming world, well worth playing despite some dodgy camera angles.
  5. Indigo Prophecy is a game that actually gives the term "cinematic gameplay" some context, as well as some real heartfelt meaning.

    Flawed genius - but so captivating while it lasts that you won't really care. [Oct 2005, p.94]
  7. Although the storyline is definitely morbid and intriguing, Indigo Prophecy screams of Dance Dance Revolution and Simon with its directional controls and the near system requirement for a dual analog gamepad.

Когда игра целостна, она захватывает, уводит в свой потайной мир, изменяет наше состояние, заставляет переживать вместе с героем все повороты сюжета.
    Управление в «Фаренгейте» повергает в шок своей необычностью, особенно людей, привыкших к FPS и 3D-action. В обязательном порядке нужно пройти обучение, иначе неинтуитивность управления будет очень расстраивать.
    Причина запредельной неординарности игры содержится в ПРОТИВОРЕЧИИ. Играть приходится и за главного героя Лукаса Кейна, который, будучи то ли зомбированным, то ли одержимым, начинает крошить народ в винегрет, и... за ПОЛИЦИЮ! Но тут всё сложнее, чем в Max Payne: Мона прикрывает Макса, Макс прикрывает Мону. Здесь Кейн сеет и прячет улики, а полиция или находит их, или... всё равно находит, но долго стараясь. Помочь Кейну? Помочь полиции? Вот это дилемма, вот это камень преткновения! Банальность побеждена!
    В игре присутствуют задания на время - обычно мне это не нравится, а уж с таким управлением... Но здесь подобный таймер играет на руку реалистичности - это вам не Max Payne, где вражеская взрывчатка может не закончиться никогда.
    Звук уникален - буквально с начала игры мне хотелось вручить цветы авторам музыкальных композиций. Атмосфера в немалой степени задается как великолепной звуковой дымкой, так и серьезной озвучкой игровых персонажей. Имена известных киношных композиторов - Анджело Бадаламенти, Нормана Корбейла и Фарида Руслана - заставляют уважать игру еще сильнее. Кроме этого, в качестве бонуса можно получить неимоверные саундтреки.
    Движок выглядит слегка устаревшим, однако неплохо отполирован и в итоге смотрится весьма красиво. Когда Лукас впадает в транс, сопровождающие его эффекты поначалу напоминают один из режимов зрения Хищника в AVP-2. Интерьер и транспорт не расстраивает - всё сделано без шика и лоска, но стильно и со вкусом. При этом на детализацию разработчики не поскупились - даже самые неигровые из неигровых элементов и случайных персонажей выглядят вполне натурально, более того - они подсвечены особым атмосферным обаянием игры, переливающимся оттенками радуги.
    Игра поднимает очень важную проблему общества, и это снова и снова заставляет прикипать к ней. В отличие от шутеров, она не прославляет смак убийства, она поднимает вопросы - "Зачем? Каковы мотивы?", показывает, какой тяжкий груз обрушивается на убийцу. Еще одна характерная, но неочевидная черта сюжета - именно рядовым, средним, на первый взгляд, людям подчас уготована просто неимоверная судьба и отведена важнейшая роль в том или ином процессе. Бытие...

    People seem to keep ragging on the game play, and while the simon says circles aren't highly exciting, you have to realize that this is People seem to keep ragging on the game play, and while the simon says circles aren't highly exciting, you have to realize that this is an adventure game, a genre that has historically been completely point click. The point of an adventure game is generally story, with most actual game play being dominated either by puzzles, or in this case, rapid decision making in stressful situations -- where the results can largely affect the story. Action sequences involving the colored circles I felt made the player feel the intensity of the situation -- and to keep you focused and engaged to intense cut-scenes without distracting you from them. This is a rather revolutionary adventure game in that it is dominated by decision making that actually has real affect on the plot. I found this game to be more gripping and exciting than many action games, because making the wrong decision in this game can have negative and irreversible consequences for my character that are not just 'you're dead, respawn and try again.'

    Exceptionally well-crafted adventure game. With Fahrenheit, Quantic Dream proudly stride back into the spotlight, returning from something of Exceptionally well-crafted adventure game. With Fahrenheit, Quantic Dream proudly stride back into the spotlight, returning from something of a sabbatical after Omikron. The narrative is always gripping and makes sure to involve the player at every opportunity. The plot draws you in and manages to elicit a myriad of emotional responses to the tale you unfold. The characters are intriguing and likeable. The musical score one of the best arrangements I've heard, each song perfectly conducive to the scene it plays over. You know you've just played a truly great game when the elation of completing it is coupled with a sense of sadness that it's over. The game loses a point in my opinion as the last quarter or so sees a rather speedy move to conclude the story. In the closing stages the exposition could've done with more detail and opportunity to understand the facets, perhaps with an extra chapter or two. Alternatively, more hints scattered around the game's earlier acts. Nevertheless, taking into account the quality of the game overall, such annoyances can be forgiven. After all, sometimes it's not the destination that's important, it's the journey. All in all an utterly compelling adventure full of suspense, intrigue and excitement. All of which are carried out with artistic and technical flair. Game of the year for me. Expand

    The idea and the story where good, the graphics where above avarage, the controls where bad and the "fighting" and other parts where you have The idea and the story where good, the graphics where above avarage, the controls where bad and the "fighting" and other parts where you have to use the controls where terrible because you have to look at what key you have to press and it rarely gives you a chance to look at what is happening in the game. Play it in easy mode, in medium you will spend hours trying to get pass levels and it is not worth the hasstle. For the price it was worth buying. The good thing is that if you play it again you can choose to do other things that you did not do the first time. Play it a second time and do the opossite. Expand
