Information
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered is a remastered version of the game Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy. Fahrenheit: Indigo Propechy Remastered is a game developed by Aspyr and Quantic Dream and published by Aspyr. Quantic Dream made the original release of the game and Aspyr is the company that took care of the remastered version.

Quantic Dream is known of their masterpieces “Heavy Rain” and “Beyond: Two Souls” both on Playstation 3. Back in 2005 Quantic Dream didn’t released much games. Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy is Quantic Dream first game that took my attention and was mindblowing by it’s unique gameplay and great story.

In this review we will take a look at Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy itself and ofcourse if the remaster is worth the buy.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy
In this interactive drama you take control over Lucas Kane, Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles. In some kind of trance Lucas Kane stabs a man to death in the restroom of Doc’s Diner.

The game starts the game with a “tutorial” of you playing as Lucas Kane when he’s trying to hide the body. In this tutorial you will learn the controls and a little bit about the many options the game has to offer. How you escape and do things is all up to you.

During the game you have to make some big choices as Lucas, Carla or Tyler. Sometimes Lucas has visions (If you do the quick-time events correctly) of future events. This could already help you make choices. An example is a cop visiting your house the day after the Doc’s Diner murder. This vision will show you the places the cop visits so you can remove the evidence.

While Carla and Tyler investigate the murder, Lucas is trying to find out why he killed the man. The story gets a twist when Lucas develops unnatural powers and escapes from the police using those powers.

The story continues about these powers and at some point Lucas meets “The Oracle” himself leading to a very epic fighting scene.

I sadly can’t tell too much in this review, because it’s much better to play it yourself.

Opinion
First of all i’m not a big fan of unnatural superpowers unless it’s a super hero game/movie like Spiderman or Superman. Eventhough this game includes unnatural powers I still think the story of this game is very good. Not only the story but also the creepy atmosphere the game has gives you chills sometimes.

The controls of the game can be hard in the beginning, but you will get use to it.

Remastered
A nice feature in this remastered edition is the option to switch between new and olf assets. By pressing the “F9″ button you can see what it used to look like back in 2005 and switch it back to the 2015 remastered version.

Other improvements that I have tested are ofcourse the widescreen support and controller support. Back in 2005 it was hard to play Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy with a controller (If you could play one with a controller at all) and because there were almost no widescreen monitors it was normal to not support widescreen.

If you already own the original game and are completely fine with playing it on a non-widescreen monitor I shouldn’t recommend this remaster. On the other hand this upgrade of assets, upscale to widescreen and ofcourse controller support is only 9€.

JosWeb Score (0/100):
This game scores a big 80 out of 100.
I really would recommend this game to everyone who loves a game with a good story, creepy atmosphere and easy to learn controls. This game is not a shooter or a big action game, but a really good interactive movie so it might not be a game for everyone.

To qoute Tyler: “Go buy yourself a videogame.”
