Con: the design under the hood is a thorough rejection of player ownership, focusing instead on designer-authored branches à la Choose Your Own Adventure books. Considering that Fahrenheit was touted as a new paradigm in storytelling that would redefine gaming, it was easy to be cynical about this flimsy, uninsightful attempt to make fiction interactive.

The game was truly impressive. Extremely fun and had the best character builds I have ever seen. The game did not even remotely come close to falling. I cannot wait for the next PS3 David Cage exclusive. This guy "gets it".
