Indigo Prophecy Review
On the surface, Indigo Prophecy seems like a great game, and you know what! it is, for it's time. You almost have a full package with this game, great graphics, awesome soundtrack, and whoa!!! what a story. It just falls a little short on the game play end.
Indigo Prophecy reminds me of Heavy Rain, seeing as Indigo Prophecy came out first it's the other way around, this game is full of (QTE) quick time events and button mashing, but the game's story keeps you so drawn in, you forgot that your fingers were hurting from quickly mashing on the shoulder buttons.
Now Indigo Prophecy is a supernatural, science fiction, action, mystery, noir, yeah I know that was a mouth full. It's all of these in one and it tells it's story so well, it's hard to put the controller down after the first 5 minutes of the game.
Next is two New York City Detectives by the names of Carla Valenti, and her Partner Tyler Miles, after the murder you play as these two, who are sent to investigate the murder. Carla has a great eye and follows her gut, she seems to be a conspiracy theorist who has a phobia of close tight spaces. Tyler is a workaholic who loves his job, but has problems with his lover, cause she doesn't want him to be a cop on the dangerous streets of NYC.
Next is Markus Kane, Lucas's brother, he also plays a big role in the present story, and Lucas's back story. I don't want to spoil who the fifth character is, just know when you get to select him, WHOA!!!
RATING - 8 OUT OF 10
