Farenheit

Farenheit, also know as the Indigo Prophecy tells the tale of Lucas Kane and the story of what happens when a man tries to solve the mystery of a murder that he himself committed.  

One of the first things that you are going to notice about this game is that there is a real story behind it all. Farenheit tells a gripping tale that you will not forget in a hurry. With a true knack for holding you to the game via an intense storyline, creating the feeling of a real novel/movie type scenario that you can control. Itís gripping, compelling and I think that most people who buy this game and know what they are getting themselves into are going to find that they made a fantastic purchasing decision. 

The title focuses on giving gamers choice. Everything you choose to do in game can have flow on effects that are felt to some degree in the title. Some of them gave me the feeling of purely being a choice that did not have any long lasting effects, however some really did carry through and effect the way that the game turned out. 

The game looks great and is a real credit to programming for the PS2, everything looks fab and there is not the usual feeling that it could have been done better that Iíve been experiencing with a number of PS2 titles of late.

The control system is an odd one, more movement based than your traditional shooting and action affair. Also to be noted is the Mental health gauge that takes the place of your normal titles. Make sure that you keep a note of the gauge as if it drops too low then you are in Game Over territory. Good mental health can be sustained by finding positive things to interact with during gameplay such as your friends and family or food that Lucas enjoys. 

The overall feeling to this magnificent game is that of a truly immersive experience that has had massive amounts of attention given to it. There are a number of different finishes to the game as well and you should be sure to go back and explore them as they do make for an overall highly entertaining experience. Just remember that this isnít a shooter, itís well paced and really well thought out. 

For those who might be daunted by the thought of going back through the game just to see a different result, you can visit chapters separately which certainly helps. 

I highly recommend this title to all gamers who are after an outstanding plot and riveting gaming experience.
