I just decided that I wanted to play an old game, being too lazy to drive to the Gamestop up the street to grab a physical copy of one within the next 10 minutes, I figured I would get one on the 360 game store. This is the first time I have ever bought a 360 classic on my console, and the only one that seemed worth the 20 bucks was “Indigo Prophecy”.
The game was a well received though completely underrated at release. It was released by Quantic Dream, the same studio who will be releasing “Heavy Rain” on Feb 23rd. Both are less game and more “guided cinematic expiriences” that really help to explore the vast genre’s videogames are able to have.
“The game is set in January 2009. The story begins on a cold New York night, when Lucas, in a possessed trance, stabs a man to death in the restroom of an East Side diner and then flees the scene in confusion. His crime is set against a backdrop of similar ritualistic murders and falling temperatures (hence the name). Detectives Valenti and Miles are charged with solving the case and tracking him down. Lucas then becomes involved in a two-millenia-old prophecy which will determine the fate of the world.” – Wikipedia
I haven’t played this game since its release in 2005, and I have to say that I am pretty glad I decided to shell out the cash for it. I hope it will hold me out until Tuesday, when I have the quandary of whether or not I should be getting myself a copy of “Army of Two: The 40th Day”.
And who am I kidding, I will most certainly be buying a copy to review.
