Description official description
Fahrenheit is an interactive movie that puts players into the flame-resistant suit of a firefighter. You are the new guy in the firehouse. Last week, you saved three lives. But now, you're on a new squad, and have to prove yourself to them.
Like most interactive movies, Fahrenheit is played entirely while watching a digitized video. At certain critical points in the video, players must press certain directions on the control pad or action buttons in order to progress in the game. Fahrenheit takes this a step further by providing several buildings in which the player has the ability to move from room to room in in a non-linear fashion. As players move from room to room, they have to locate victims and neutralize fire hazards.

The game allows you to control a rookie firefighter through some cool looking, full motion video locations. Along with the impressive video and sound, the game is actually fun to play.
Once you know where the victims, property and fire hazards are located, the repay value drops. The game still only has three different levels to complete, and if you fail to make a decision in time, the computer always seems to pick the worst decisions for you. The game also may not work on some Sega CD models.
The Bottom Line
Fahrenheit (32X) offers much better full motion video then the Sega CD version. The game is a fun combination of first-person perspective interactive movies mixed in with some role playing elements. It would have been nicer if the game had a few more levels, but fans of full motion video games should enjoy it.
