Retro Review - Fahrenheit

It’s an infamous story for us gamers that we’ve got that never-ending back log of games that we still need to complete, need to start or even in some instances take out of the wrapping! There’s always that onslaught of new games that we frantically buy and yet never put aside the time to play until they’ve grown several layers of dust. I am no exception to this story but with the summer bringing around a shortage of new releases, I decided I best delve into the games that I had long forgotten about playing. The one I picked for reviewing was a game that’s came out of Quantic Dream’s back catalogue and after playing a demo of it many years ago, it’s one that has stuck out in my mind as a definite “need to play” game.

and I am sure it inspired Heavy Rain to some extent.

Both games are amazing.

"and I am sure it inspired Heavy Rain to some extent."

Same developer, so it was more like their first try at this kind of game.

Better than Heavy Rain IMO, it seemed to have the right balance of gameplay, choices, and story. Although with both of them, the distinct lack of a strong conclusion ruined the endings of two otherwise very successful games.

Labeled with "Indigo Prophecy" in the US release. Not sure why they changed it, but regardless it was a great game.

Indigo Prophecy is a lame censored version of Farenheit.

Play Farenheit and you ill see what you missed out.

I like this one way more than Heavy Rain it feels a much more refined experience overrall in terms of storyline, character development, exploring, interaction, plenty of alternative options and good chalenging gameplay in some parts.

It as its flaws and Heavy Rain may be better tecnicly but i prefer this one way more.


Quote from article: " One criticism I will make against the QTE in Fahrenheit is that they are placed over almost every cut-scene, most of which make the QTE seem rather pointless." - Its chalenging pressing-button gameplay! the actions scenes are totally awesome.
