Seria possível gastar muito mais linhas para falar de "Indigo Prophecy", mas o melhor a fazer é experimentar por si próprio as possibilidades desta que é, certamente, uma das mais gratas surpresas do ano. Embora a aventura (infelizmente) termine em algumas horas, ainda sim vale a pena tentar jogá-la novamente só para tentar fazer tudo diferente.

Overall, the possibilities are seemingly immense and upon unlocking every bonus featurette, checking out all the songs and every single piece of gallery art; it's hard not to feel a bit melancholy when it's over. Sure, you can pick it up down the road and play it again, but it's that kind of feeling that makes you pray and hope that the developers make a sequel. Something bigger and more in-depth than the life of an inadvertent hero making his way from murder to saving the world.

Indigo Prophecy is an immersive, cinematic experience that succeeds due to an excellent script, believable characters and the impudence to go where no adventure game has gone before (btw, I do fervently hope that the powers-to-be at Quantic Dreams are smart enough to ignore the moronic – and that’s not the word I really want to use - advice of the console community, such as PSM Magazine, who wrote that Indigo Prophecy would be a better game if it had “less talk and more action.” Stupid, stupid twitch jockeys.)

PlayStation 2Digital Entertainment News (den)
Ever since the debut of games like Metal Gear Solid on PSone and, later, Shenmue on Dreamcast, game designers have been aspiring to reach toward a more movie-like storytelling style. Some of these outings have been more successful than others, but rarely has that goal been strived toward with the level of grace evident in Indigo Prophecy. Rather than adapting a cinematic style of game play to a preexisting genre, Indigo Prophecy starts from a virtual tabla rasa and builds an experience that, while still part game, is at least equal parts movie, combining to create an all-new style genre unlike nearly anything that’s come before it.

Uwielbiam takie gry. Dojrzałe, oryginalne, nie stroniące od kontrowersyjnych motywów, z wielowątkowym, nieprzewidywalnym scenariuszem, trzymające w napięciu od pierwszych scen, aż po napisy końcowe. Krótkie, ale szalenie intensywne. Właśnie taki jest produkt Quantic Dream. Jednocześnie, jest to jedna z bardzo niewielu gier, do której będę miał ochotę zasiąść ponownie. Nie jutro i nie za tydzień, ale jednak. Do Fahrenheita można z przyjemnością wrócić, tak jak wraca się do ulubionych książek i filmów. Możliwość rozegrania scenariusza w inny sposób i zobaczenia alternatywnych zakończeń na nowo, przyciąga do gry. Wspaniale byłoby, gdyby takie podejście do tematu replayability mieli wszyscy producenci gier. Choć Fahrenheit w swojej oryginalności pozostaje grą niszową, to naprawdę warto dać jej szansę. Dla niesamowitej fabuły, rewelacyjnej atmosfery i świeżych rozwiązań.

Kokonaisuutena käteen jää juuri se, mitä seikkailupeli parhaimmillaan haluaisi olla. Elokuvallinen, vaikuttava ja hetkittäin aidosti säikäyttävä tarina, jossa hahmojen koettelemukset paitsi kiinnostavat myös oikeasti rasittavat pelaajaa.

Ultimately, Indigo Prophecy is a wonderful title and well worth a purchase. While the visuals leave much to be desired, the rest of the game is well packaged. This is adventure gaming at its finest and includes a wonderful control scheme innovation that should be used for future games. Be warned though, the game requires a lot of arm stamina to play for any length of time. Still, it is worth the exercise to play though this title.

Podsumowując. Dziecko Quantic Dream jest świetną grą. Bardzo dobra fabuła, świetni bohaterowie, intryga i napięcie sprawiają, że nie możemy oderwać się od monitora komputera. Do tego dochodzi innowacyjna rozgrywka, możliwość kreowania części fabuły i trzy różne zakończenia w zależności od naszych postępków w czasie gry. Szczerze mówiąc nie mogłem się doczekać kolejnych sesji przed swoim komputerem, by tylko móc zagłębić się w zimnym świecie przedstawionym w Fahrenheit. I pomimo tego, że od ukończenia gry minęła kilka dni, nadal żyję przygodami Lucasa, Carli i Tylera. No i nie zamierzam poprzestać na jednym ukończeniu rozgrywki, lecz wałkować Fahrenheit tak długo, aż nie wycisnę z niej wszystkie soki.

Thanks to its branching nature and multiple story paths, different gamers will see the same scenes in different lights—and this really adds to the way you’re going to feel about the game at the end. Indigo Prophecy marks a tremendous rebirth for a very stagnant genre. Let’s hope its mature style serves as an inspiration for other developers.

Mijn conclusie is de volgende: Fahrenheit is een spel dat, in mijn opinie, iedereen met een Xbox (of PC of zelfs PS2) moet gespeeld hebben. Of je het spel nu gaat kopen, huren of gewoon leent van een vriend of familielid met een goede smaak, dat doet er eigenlijk niet zoveel toe. Indien je je aangesproken voelde door één van de voorwaarden in de inleiding, dan staat Fahrenheit nu hopelijk al op je winkellijstje. Voor de anderen kan ik alleen maar hopen dat ze dit spel een kans geven. Onverwachte topper!

There is no way around it. This game will make an immediate impression on you and stick with you long after you put the controller down. The concept may not be new to the adventure genre, but the execution breaths life into something that had all but decayed over the past few years. The graphics may leave something to be desired, but the sound in the game is phenomenally executed. Make the moral decision and pick this one up if you’ve ever had a place in your heart for a strong adventure game.

"Fahrenheit" from developer Quantic Dream and publisher Atari stole my gamers heart! Really, for the first time in months, I was so excited with a game like this one that I just play on, on and on. Innovative, fresh and original are what Fahrenheit really is. Oh yeah and besides an action adventure game with a few sexual explicit scenes, you get exactly what you want ... a wonderful game with suspense to the max! Now call up your local game store to see if they still have it and just buy it.

Indigo Prophercy (jak brzmi amerykański tytuł gry), to bardzo odważna próba zrewolucjonizowania gatunku. Zresztą, czy ktoś wie, czym przygody Lucasa Kane’a naprawdę są? Mamy tu elementy przygodówki, gry zręcznościowej, a nawet, niekiedy, składanki, choć, na szczęście, tytułowi najbliżej do tej pierwszej cząstki. W zasadzie nie zauważyłem większych potknięć, a te, które się przytrafiły są tylko dowodem, że nie ma gier doskonałych. Najmocniejszym atutem produkcji Quantic Dreams jest klimat rodem z dobrego filmu scence-fiction i fabuła, na której podstawie spokojnie można by oprzeć jakiś bestseller. Erotomanów ucieszy, że w wersji „dla dorosłych” pojawiło się kilka naprawdę ostrych scen, zaś w jednym z bonusowych filmików już odważnie i bez skrupułów pozwolono sobie na pokazanie tego i owego. Ale przecież nie będziemy chwalić zboczeństw w tak pięknej przygodówce!

David Cage n’a donc pas menti durant toutes ces années, son jeu est réellement innovant. Un vrai titre qui joue sur l’intuition et qui ne s’encombre pas d’un quelconque inventaire ou des routines habituelles.

Scoring Fahrenheit with your head you'd could slap a seven on it and feel confident that it sits comfortably in that zone where it did some very cool things that didn't quite come off. But if we did that it would imply that there are many other games out there today in the genre you'll enjoy more, which is obviously complete nonsense. With that in mind we had to follow our hearts and award Fahrenheit the nine it deserves for being probably the most enjoyable, forward-looking and thoughtful piece of videogaming we've played in this or in any year. We never thought we'd say this, but it's a real step forward for the adventure game genre. Now try sticking that quote on the box.

This is the life of Lucas Kane, and though his story might sound vaguely familiar to you, chances are that the next turn of events will probably not. During his meal Lucas begins to fade in and out of consciousness, and while in this dream-like state, some sort of ritual keeps re-emerging itself in Lucas’s mind. And even though it seems real, it actually feels more like a dream than it does reality. Lucas then wakes up to find the shocking truth behind his visions - he has somehow managed to make his way into the bathroom, where he has just brutally murdered a random middle-aged man for no apparent reason. With blood everywhere, murder weapon in hand, and ritualistic carvings now on Lucas’s wrist, it’s no secret that he committed this grisly act; the only question is why?

The first thing you notice about Fahrenheit is its substitution of 'new game' for 'new movie'. It's a mere indication of what is to come and the ambitious intent of its developer; to tell a story and create a game that sacrifices neither narrative or interactivity. To do this, writer and director David Cage must sell his audience a gameplay model that allows them not to influence the overall plot, but to dictate how each scene plays out.

XboxEurogamer.net (UK)
It says a lot about the nature of the games business that a game as exciting as Fahrenheit can be left hung out to dry by its publisher. Less than a year into the game's development, Quantic Dream was left contemplating its options once it became clear that its publisher Vivendi-Universal Games was no longer interested in releasing it. With the personnel that originally signed the game for VUG having left the organisation, those left in charge seemingly had no clear understanding of where the project was heading or its commercial value.

Amidst franchises, sequels and brands the videogame industry is going through something of a crisis when it comes to creativity and originality; very few publishers seem to have the balls to commission anything that’s a little different, so we’ve got utmost respect for Atari’s decision to pick up Quantic Dreams Fahrenheit after Vivendi-Universal grew tired of waiting.

For years there hasn't been a whole lot of innovation in the adventure genre. We’ve seen the occasional pre-rendered first-person offering, and occasionally a point and click release in the style of Monkey Island, but nothing that’s come close to evolving the genre. In 1999, developers Quantic Dream released a massive adventure/action hybrid called Omikron: The Nomad Soul; while not graphically groundbreaking it included a massive game world, a high-quality soundtrack—produced by David Bowie—and a decent blend of action/adventure gameplay, all of which was tied together with a gripping storyline. Now, some 6 years later, Quantic are back with a new title: Fahrenheit, or, as its titled in the US, The Indigo Prophecy. Since its announcement the game has been accompanied by considerable hype; so does it live up to said hype and the lofty reputation Quantic Dream gained through Nomad Soul?

So is it a brave new chapter in the lost art of interactive storytelling? An amalgam of filmmaking and gaming in a single package? Is David Cage the games industry's answer to Quentin Tarantino? Are the annual Oscars going to have to open a new category for Best Virtual Screenplay In A Non-First-Person Shooter? And will it lead to games finally being given proper, gravelly-voiced, "In a world..." trailers, red carpet opening night premieres at prestige branches of Game or HMV, and developers being hounded by paparazzi as they revel in their new-found fame and fortune by snorting huge lines of cocaine from penthouse hotel suites packed to the gills with girls and agents?

To conclude, I’d say that it’s a rather remarkable game despite its problems. It’s a game that anyone who considers himself or herself open-minded should try. And when I say anyone please do not get me wrong. I mean anyone over 15. This is not a game for kids, because on one hand it involves some mature topics, and on the other hand this is a thriller, even if it’s more of a psychological experience rather than violent.

Fahrenheit wurde nicht umsonst mit dem Award des besten Spiels der Games Convention 2005 in Leipzig ausgezeichnet. Die Handlung könnte, wie schon des Öfteren erwähnt, aus einem tollen Hollywood Film stammen. Die Hauptcharaktere liefern eine tolle „schauspielerische“ Leistung ab, und die neuen Innovationen, sowie die prächtige Grafik und der geniale Sound steuern das übrige zum Gelingen dieses tollen Psychothrillers bei. Einziges Manko ist die doch etwas verwirrende Kamerasicht, die den Spieler oft an die Grenze eines Wutausbruches bringt. Nicht desto Trotz: Fahrenheit macht süchtig auf mehr.

Look for this game to easily be the sleeper hit of the year.

Fahrenheit. Remember the name. Well, also remember the American name too - Indigo Prophacy. In ten years time we'll almost certianly look back on it as a breakthrough game. Sure the graphics aren't the best, and perhaps some gameplay elements could be a little more refined, but in terms of story telling, presentation and interactivity this game is among the best there is. Some gamers may be a little put off by the lack of action, but since when should a game be put down for that. This is all about the tension and exploration. A stunningly engrossing and highly entertaining title.

Seasoned gamers will have no problems beating Indigo Prophecy in around 8-12 hours, and will mostly likely reveal all three endings soon after. Yet the sense of victory is strange and unfamiliar. Instead of rejoicing after a hard boss battle or an intense endurance contest, you’ll find yourself wondering what will happen to the characters afterward, and what it all means. It’s an odd feeling, thinking in emotional terms invoked by videogame characters on such a personal level, but it might be time to get used to it. Indigo Prophecy didn’t do everything right the first time around, but if Mr. Cage has his way, there’s sure to be a follow-up. After all, if there’s one thing the movie business has in common with videogames, it’s the word ‘sequel’.

Indigo Prophecy is a game that I did not expect to like as much as I did. I guess this is because I initially geared all of my expectations toward the norm of today’s typical game. That said, you will probably be disappointed if you expect freedom of movement and expansive levels. As I stated earlier, Indigo Prophecy plays much like a movie where the main challenge is to get from beginning to end. The fun lies in uncovering the story, not killing anything that moves. It’s a short game, easily finished in about 10 hours, but the rich story makes it worth every minute. At the end, I did wish that the conclusion was a bit more, well, conclusive. Instead of tying loose ends, the writers left it open to many possibilities, thus leaving room for a sequel. Indigo Prophecy is definitely worth playing, just for the experience in itself. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if I cued up this game six months from now, just to play through it all over again – the story really was that good.

Every now and then a game comes along that focuses more on the storytelling and the solving of complex puzzles rather than finding the most brutal means to solve problems that comes your way, like say, cracking a lead pipe over a door to open it. Now using brutish means is the fun way of solving a dilemma but every now and then there’s the need to solve a puzzle the cerebral way. Thankfully adventure games are no stranger to the Xbox (Shenmue II and Still Life are among the best) and now add Indigo Prophecy to the list. Trust me, this is not a game you want to miss.

Das Team von Quantic Dream präsentiert nicht nur eine sehr gute Story, glaubwürdige Charaktere und eine filmreife Regie, sondern auch ein vollkommen neues Spielerlebnis: das Auf und Ab der Emotionen und der Stress in Extremsituationen wird erstmals in aller Konsequenz simuliert - je nach Entscheidung warten Depression oder Glück, Selbstmord oder Sex auf euch. Aber der Spannungsbogen bricht in der Mitte etwas ein: Obwohl ich die Reaktionstests aufgrund ihrer Intensität liebe, wurden sie auf Kosten der kaum vorhandenen Rätsel etwas überstrapaziert. Und das Ende kommt nicht nur verdammt schnell, sondern wirkt auch erzählerisch etwas bemüht. Trotzdem: Viele Adventures sind einfach nur storybasierte Rätselansammlungen ohne Seele. Fahrenheit ist ein ebenso lebendiger wie dramatischer Psychotrip, der wegweisend sein kann. Es zeigt trotz einiger handwerklicher Schwächen die faszinierenden Möglichkeiten auf, die das Genre vor sich hat.

Fahrenheit is consuming, both physically and mentally. Not many adventure games still manage to have this effect, out of the few still bearing the cross of the Adventure genre. Most continue the old point'n'click trend established by Maniac Mansion. Not Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit wants more, wants something else, and does something else. It consumes you and gets you personally involved in the life of the characters that you're playing.

Solid graphics with a consistent feel, one of the best story presentations I have seen in a game since the original Half-Life, mixed all together with a variety of puzzles and changing environments combine to make a knockout of a title. Barring the minor problems with the controls, I highly recommend this title. As a word of warning though, as I said before, I think this is one of those cases where you will either love it or just find it to be boring and have no idea why I enjoyed it so much. As for me, I will keep playing this game, whenever I have some spare time.

Fahrenheit ist wie ein guter Thriller: spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute. Wohl kaum ein anderes Spiel vermag einen momentan derart zu fesseln. Quantic Dream zeigen mit ihrem Titel, wie die Zukunft von interaktiven Entertainment aussehen könnte: Film und Spiel vermischen sich immer mehr. Allerdings ist nicht alles Gold, was glänzt. So besitzt auch Fahrenheit seine Schwächen. Die Spieldauer ist schon arg kurz geraten und ein alles in den Schatten stellende Grafik-Feuerwerk bekommt man ebenfalls nicht geboten. Zudem ärgern ungünstige Kameraperspektiven und die Tastendrückorgien sind sicherlich auch nicht jedermanns Geschmack. Davon abgesehen ist Fahrenheit jedoch ein grandios inszeniertes Erlebnis und in seiner Form bislang einzigartig.

Indigo Prophecy is a good game and I feel that it is worth the money. It could use a lot of brushing up in certain areas, but considering its characters, dialogue, and sense of atmosphere, Quantic Dream has delivered a game ultimately worthy of the genre. Hopefully other developers adopt the sort of the storytelling techniques found in the game, as many of them could learn a thing or two.

Indigo Prophecy is a complex narrative. On one hand, Indigo follows the exploits of one Lucas Kane as he attempts to cope with a murder he unknowingly committed, while on the other it follows the attempts of the ever determined detective Carla Vincent and her somewhat absent-minded, jive talkin’ sidekick Tyler Miles as they attempt to track Lucas down. The fact that the player controls both the cat and the mouse in this game really gives it an interesting edge. It’s what makes this game stand out among the lesser known adventure titles.

The words ‘innovative gameplay’ get tossed around so often it’s hard to understand what is so revolutionary about some titles. In Indigo Prophecy, however, it's easy to see. With a simple and intuitive interface, Indigo Prophecy mesmerizes you from the moment you start the game until its eventual conclusion. Not since the original Metal Gear Solid has a game made you care so much about what happens, nor has one hooked you in so entirely that you find yourself unable to put down your controller. No matter what you may think of adventure games, Indigo Prophecy is a stellar example of what a great game plays like. It’s accessible to anyone who can hold a controller, and will have you hooked from beginning to end.

Es ist so: Zuerst fielen wir alle in blanker Euphorie auf die Knie, haben sichtlich mitgenommen Wasserfälle geweint, die Verpackung von 'Fahrenheit' gestreichelt und einfach das Glück auf Erden zelebriert. Das lang angekündigte Überspiel, endlich hielten wir es in unseren Händen! Nach ein paar Stunden Spielen verzogen sich unsere stetig von Glück erfüllten Mienen und die gewohnte Neutralität nahm wieder ihren Platz ein. Ganz objektiv wie wir uns eben zu geben versuchen, mussten wir eingestehen, dass 'Fahrenheit' durch einfaches Erleben eben doch keine Orgasmen auslösen kann. Das Spiel enthält sowohl grafische, als auch spielerische Schwächen, eine für PC-Spieler unvorteilhafte Steuerung und eine Story, die durch ihren unerwarteten, aufgepumpten Ausklang die Spielergemeinde polarisieren wird. Doch 'Fahrenheit' spiegelt den vorbildlichen Versuch wieder, das Genre der Videospiele zu erweitern.

With a story that moves forward at a speed leaving little time for breaks, Fahrenheit is a fun way to spend 7-10 hours. While some may consider this game short in comparison with others, replay value is abundant as there are several paths to take and resulting consequences may be dissimilar with each pass. The story ends in a satisfying way, but *Spoiler* The final battle is with two adversaries, one of whom gives you something to think about with a complete stomping shortly before, that is too easily overcome. In this way the climax seems to occur in an odd place within the storyline, about two-thirds in *end spoiler*.

The story ends in a satisfying way, but *Spoiler* The final battle is with two adversaries, one of whom gives you something to think about with a complete stomping shortly before, that is too easily overcome. In this way the climax seems to occur in an odd place within the storyline, about two-thirds in *end spoiler*. In the end, the fun outweighs the very few shortcomings, and adventure fans will be thrilled with the myriad of paths and attitudes the characters can take despite the few (understatement) punches thrown. Thanks to Quantic Dream for the splendidness that is Fahrenheit, you have my admiration.

An Fahrenheit scheiden sich die Geister. Liebhaber klassischer Adventures bemängeln Rätseldichte, Storyschwächen und Längen ebenso wie die eigentlich sinnvolle Gamepad-Steuerung und Zeitlimits. Mich allerdings hat die unkonventionelle Mischung aus interaktivem Film und Action-Adventure gefesselt. Mein Tipp: Spielen Sie lieber auf Englisch. Die deutsche Sprachausgabe beleidigt zum Teil die Lauscher.

When was the last time you actually played a game where you cared about what happened to the characters, where you actually wanted to find out what happens next? If you're sick of generic shooters and reflex based games where high scores and headshots rule supreme, you'll definitely find solace in Quantic Dream's Indigo Prophecy. If you have a favorite chair or comfortable couch, this is the perfect game to sit down and play while wrapped in a gigantic, fluffy blanket and sipping hot cocoa with mini-marshmallows.

The average man in question is Lucas Kane, a handsome but worn gentleman who lives his life as any IT professional in the great city of New York would. Kane's life takes a decidedly dark turn one night, however, when he decides to visit a local diner. In the very opening scene of the game we find Lucas sitting in a bathroom stall, convulsing and carving bizarre symbols into his forearms. An unlucky schmo happens into the bathroom during this period, and Lucas, seemingly unable to control his actions, attacks him, stabbing him multiple times. Moments after the killing, Lucas returns to his senses, only to be equal parts horrified and stupefied by his actions. From here you take control of Lucas, and it's up to you to get him the hell out of there.

The term "cinematic gameplay" gets tossed around an awful lot these days. And it's often tossed around by game makers who simply throw in a few letterboxed cutscenes and minimalist heads-up displays and then just call it a day. Developer Quantic Dream's Indigo Prophecy is a game that actually gives cinematic gameplay some context, as well as some real heartfelt meaning. More movie with an interactive progression than video game pretending to be a movie, Indigo Prophecy eschews practically any modern gameplay convention in favor of a significantly more subtle mechanical interface. You take part in every action in Indigo Prophecy--from the biggest fight sequence, to the most minor of day-to-day tasks--and you do it all with simple movements of the analog sticks on your controller, or with some quick button presses that are more akin to a rhythm game than a typical third-person adventure.

Despite some of its drawbacks, however, Indigo Prophecy manages to captivate the player in every possible way. It's a very good game, but not an excellent one. A little more function to go with the gorgeous style and gripping narrative, and this would be a game for the ages.

Разум видит и понимает изъяны «Фаренгейта», однако сердце, наплевав на шероховатости, угловатости, потертости и устаревшую графику, все равно любит. Даже те, кто сражался с кривым PC-управлением, признают — игра удалась. Да, она могла быть лучше, интереснее, продолжительнее. Но виртуальных дней, проведенных по ту сторону остывающего океана, не жаль. Шесть часов не выброшены из жизни. DIXI.

Fahrenheit ist mit Sicherheit nicht für alle geeignet. Es gibt im gesamten Spiel vielleicht 2 Rätsel für klassische Adventurefreunde, ansonsten ist es durchweg etwas völlig anderes. Mir hat das Spiel jedoch sehr gut gefallen, die Geschichte wird interessant erzählt und mehr als in anderen Spielen fühlte ich mich in die kalte Welt von Fahrenheit versetzt. Der einzige Dämpfer ist die Geschichte, die im letzten Viertel auch für größte Akte-X Fans übertrieben wirkt. Wer ein völlig neues Spielgefühl erleben will, sollte unbedingt zuschlagen!

Fahrenheit ist ein Meisterwerk des interaktiven Erzählens, schon jetzt einen Eintrag in die Annalen der Spielegeschichte wert. Tausend Dank an Quantic Dream dafür, den überkommenen Rätselzwang über Bord zu kippen zugunsten des wirklich Spannenden: neugieriges Entdecken einer Welt, dramatische Beziehungen zwischen den Charakteren, packendes Mitleiden. Unfug natürlich, Tempo über sinnlos aufgesetzte Tastendruck-Spielchen erzeugen zu wollen – das nervt nur! Dreimal schade auch, dass das erst so angenehm detailverliebte Spiel seine Helden wie im Rausch durchs letzte Drittel schleift. Miese Kameraführung, Steuerung, viel verschenktes Potenzial bei der Spurensuche – was soll’s! Kinderkrankheiten eines Avantgarde-Werks, die ich schulterzuckend verzeihe.

Die konsequente cineastische Aufmachung und der geniale Soundtrack sorgen für Dauerspannung und ziehen mich in die Geschichte. Zumindest, bis den Drehbuchautoren die Sicherungen durchgebrannt sind. Gegen Ende entwickelt sich Fahrenheit nämlich zur klischeebehafteten Peinlichkeit. Dass die deutsche Sprachausgabe Atari-typisch unter aller Kanone ist, macht die Lage nicht besser. Die Sprecher von Fahrenheit haben mir schon bei Still Life den Spaß verdorben. Da kann der Spielablauf noch so spaßig und innovativ ein … bei Fahrenheit zählt für mich in erster Linie die Geschichte und die leidet einfach zu sehr.

Spannend von der ersten Sekunde an - in Fahrenheit erleben Sie einen virtuellen Krimi der besonderen Art. Die originelle Steuerung und Erzählweise, in der Sie zugleich Hauptverdächtiger und Ermittler sind, heben das Spiel deutlich von der Masse der Abenteuerspiele ab. Auch als Anfänger sind Sie dank des außergewöhnlichen Konzeptes sehr schnell mit den Bedienfunktionen vertraut und von der packenden Geschichte gefangen,. Die Optik ist nicht mehr zeitgemäß, doch das mindert den sonst "guten" Gesamteindruck kaum.

Pierwsza część gry jest znacznie ciekawsza od drugiej. Początkowo czujemy się prześladowani, gdy policja nas ściga zaczynamy się bać i wczuwamy się w rolę podejrzanego. W dalszej części jest gorzej. Gra zaczyna przypominać Matrixa, a nas zaczynają dręczyć wielkie pchły. Jednak Fahrenheit ma w sobie to coś, że zapada w pamięci. Przeszedłem go już drugi raz i dalej bawiłem się świetnie. Rozgrywkę wydłuża zbieranie kart, za które kupimy dodatkowe filmiki, sekwencję czy muzykę. Chcecie poznać kto stoi za morderstwami w NY? Dlaczego jest coraz zimniej na świecie? Kim jest dziewczynka, którą Lucas widzi w swoich wizjach? Zapraszam do gry.

Min sparfil registrerade knappt sju timmars effektiv speltid med Fahrenheit, något som med en del experimenterande och omstarter hamnar runt tio timmars verklig speltid. Många kommer säkert att tycka att det är på tok för kort, men samtidigt känns spelet hela tiden tajt och det finns inga transportssträckor eller någon backtracking som ofta fungerar som tidsutfyllnad i den här genren. Lägg därtill att jag säkerligen kommer att ge mig på spelet igen för att försöka påverka så många händelser som möjligt och få en alternativ resa genom Lucas äventyr. Det här är ett spel som alla svältfödda äventyrsspelare bör titta närmare på och ett spel som måhända är långt ifrån felfritt, men som jag ändå rekommenderar mycket varmt.

Indigo Prophecy is the savior for interactive movies and adventure games. It does drag on in a few spots, and its sci-fi bent may betray the original premise, but it brings gamers a deep, compelling story told in a clever way -- both in terms of narrative and gameplay execution. Not everyone is going to like it; conversely, FPS fans or fighter players will be bored to tears. For gamers looking for a digitized novel, however, nothing will serve you better.

And here’s why Indigo Prophecy is hard to explain to someone who hasn’t played it. Lucas, the supernaturally-motivated murderer, Carla, the tough detective, and Tyler, the cop torn between his job and his fiancée are playable characters, but they aren’t the main character. The story is the main character in Indigo Prophecy, and the player’s actions either develop the story or bring it to an early end.

And it unfolds with the grace of a classic. Never are you forced down an avenue just to be the playable character, quite the opposite. Throughout the story you reach points where you must chose which side to play next. Ultimately you wind up seeing all the various pieces, but their order, and to some degree their impact as a result, is your call. Relationships are built with figures on different sides of the story. You know them; you care about them; and what connection you build with them is left entirely up to you.

While it's definitely a mixed title as far as quality is concerned, Indigo Prophecy is a game that offers such a fresh experience, it becomes a game impossible not to recommend. If you know and understand what you're getting into and can get past the bland visuals, you'll find a great example of what video games may become in the future. Be aware that this won't be for everyone though.

Indigo Prophecy is a brilliantly executed game that, while not really innovating anything wildly new in terms of gameplay deserves quite a lot of credit for being able to deliver one of the most polished adventure games in years. It's a game I think everyone should at least try, and hopefully it will show that this kind of storytelling does have a place in mainstream gaming, rather than being relegated to small independent PC releases to be forgotten in the bargain bin. "Interactive Movie" might still be a pretentious term, but Indigo Prophecy has really managed to capture the essence of cinematic storytelling with the medium in a way few others have.

La patience est une vertu qui sait remercier le temps venu ses adeptes.

Ainsi certains d’entre vous, comme votre humble serviteur, doivent attendre ce jeu depuis presque trois ans, dès son annonce, alors que le développement n’avait même pas commencé.

Fahrenheit has been hailed by some as a potential game of the year candidate. There's no doubt that it is a very enjoyable game, and something different to the usual racing, action, FPS or RPG that is released each week, and raises the bar as far as 'interactive movies' go, but as a game it isn't quite as polished as its presentation suggests. This won't engage you on a traditional gameplay front, but will tell a story in a way that very few games have been able to in the past.

Developers have been talking for a long time about creating a cinematic experience. Their games, on the other hand, haven't exactly delivered on that promise. And even those that have feel shackled to their gameliness -- until now. Indigo Prophecy shatters that bond to achieve a blend of fiction and gameplay well beyond that of any game before it, and in so doing sets the new standard by which future attempts will be judged.

Will only adventure fans appreciate Indigo Prophecy? If the arcade/twitch sequences were eliminated or even reduced, this would be an easy recommendation for adventure fans because even though Indigo Prophecy is grim, it’s also engrossing (nevermind the pixel hunting in some areas). As it is, adventure fans have little to choose from – at least in this case, it’s a good game so it’s not like Indigo Prophecy needs to be picked up because it’s the only game in town classified as an adventure.

XboxElectronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
As a mystery/adventure/thriller in videogame form, Indigo Prophecy has you playing both sides of a supernatural murder mystery with your analog sticks. The game focuses on individual actions instead of the broad strokes, giving you control of situations other games present as passive cut-scenes. Interrogating a witness, hiding evidence at a bloody crime scene, or pouring a glass of wine all require your deliberate touch--influencing the story moment-to-moment like this is amazing. Basic character movement can feel somewhat awkward, alas, but it's a minor annoyance.

Re-jig the control system and there is no doubt you would be on the verge of an outstanding game. Even with the foibles of the controls, both of us agree that this game was well worth the price of admission.

This is definitely not a game for everyone. Many people will find it distinctly lacking in action and will want more complex gameplay. Still, if you are a person who occasionally just wants to play a game for the plot, then this is a great choice. It’s a solid title, and with many different endings and conversation paths it might even be worth playing through a few times.

Swoją oceną zapewne narażę się licznym fanom gry. Wielu z nich po raz pierwszy sięgnęło po przygodówkę bez grymasu na twarzy. Jednak moim zdaniem potencjał tej produkcji nie został wykorzystany. Fabuła w pewnym momencie zaczyna przypominać zbiór pomysłów na świetne, filmowe sceny, które ktoś został wręcz zmuszony połączyć jakąś historią. Pierwsza część gry zasługuje na dziesiątkę, druga - raczej na piątkę. Policzyłem średnią arytmetyczną, gdyż jest mniej krzywdząca niż geometryczna i harmoniczna.

Adventures verströmen normalerweise Ruhe. Sie lassen Zeit zum Nachdenken. Hier ein Klick, da eine Konversation. Fahrenheit ist anders. Es geht eine Hektik aus von diesem Spiel, es ist, als hätte jemand die Unruhe der TV-Serie 24 auf ein Computerspiel übertragen: Ständig schwenkt die Kamera, Bilder im Bild zeigen bis zu drei Szenen gleichzeitig und unaufhaltsam tickt die Uhr.

Die Macher des Spiels wollten ungewöhnliche Wege gehen und das ist ihnen auch gelungen. Über weite Strecken wirkt Fahrenheit wie ein spannender Film-Thriller, auf dessen Handlungsverlauf Sie gezielt Einfluss nehmen können und der durch die Wechsel in die verschiedenen Rollen enorm abwechslungsreich ist. Die Bewegungen und Stimmungen der einzelnen Protagonisten sind glänzend in Szene gesetzt, wenngleich die Umgebungsgrafik demgegenüber etwas abfällt. Sie können sich auf ein "gutes" Spielerlebnis freuen.

Sonow that I've bashed the game quite badly what were my overallimpressions? Well I think Fahrenheit is an ambitious attempt to trysomething new in the game world, a world that has become stagnant andrepetitive. I salute Quantic Dream for their effort to bring somethingnew to the industry and hope the game does well enough to allow them tocontinue to try innovative ideas. It is great shame the game had itsshortcomings, which sadly I feel was its storyline. Yes, they made mefeel emotionally involved for long enough for me to want to completethe game, but by the time end came I just no longer cared.

Fahrenheit is a bold step in the right direction, and though not perfect, it has enough charm, polish and excitement to make it one of the most interesting titles of the year. It may not live up to the classic potential it opens with, but there can’t be a single gamer in the world that isn’t all-ears for the next game developers Quantic Dream think up.

And so starts Indigo Prophecy, a unique sci-fi game from Atari and French developer Quantic Dream. It's your mission to figure out the mystery that surrounds why Kane did what he did (hint: he may have done the actual stabbing, but he was being manipulated by another), though the journey from start to finish will take you on a story-rich adventure that's part Hitchcock, part CSI and part The Matrix.

Acid-washed jeans. Michael Jackson's music. Janet Jackson's music. Web searches on HotBot. All of the aforementioned are things that are unfashionable, and you can throw graphic-adventure games into the mix as well. In an age where nearly everything must be "extreme" or "fast and furious," graphic adventures simply aren't in demand. Nobody told this to Quantic Dream, however, and the developer has defied the norm with Indigo Prophecy. This heady adventure is different from what's on the market today, and it's so good that it just might save a dying genre. The PC version is a notch below its console brethren, but still worth a look.

Nowadays, most of the games that are made are clones of other games. Sports games are all the same, FPS's are the same just with a different plot, and RPG's are obvious clones of some of the better ones (Final Fantasy). But recently we have seen some creativity in newer games. And now, a new game has been released that implements more creativity: Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy).

Quelque part entre film et jeu vidéo, Fahrenheit est une expérience nouvelle, un ovni à essayer absolument. Pas pour son scénario à la limite de l’absurde, de ce point de vue là, le jeu de Quantic Dream est un échec douloureux. De même, le gameplay n'est pas exempt de défauts et le jeu se traîne quelques aberrations fâcheuses. Simplement, il faut bien avouer qu'on n'a jamais vu pareil jeu d’aventure. Fahrenheit possède un sens du rythme et une cohésion narration / gameplay qui méritent qu’on s’y attarde. Et puis, c’est un peu le seul jeu au monde dont le but n’est pas de remplir des objectifs.

Despite its cinematic aspirations and genuinely unique approach, Indigo Prophecy is little more than a short adventure that relies too heavily on the same, bad mini-game when it should be mixing up the contextually-controlled goodness like a dyslexic DJ. There are certainly some good ideas here, but its attempts at cinematic effect undermine themselves through sheer repetition, while the story goes from creepy cool to Fox Kids’ Club silly faster than you can say “WTF.” Here’s hoping that this mystery remains unsolved.
