GAME REVIEWS: Indigo Prophecy
|Atari (PS2, Xbox) |
Game ••••½ Graphics/Sound ••
This game is the kind of ugly
that blisters your retinas. But looking for the beauty within reveals something more - a taut, tense thriller that plays out like an interactive Seven
. You are both cop and killer, living out opposite sides of a nasty murder mystery that begins in a dingy diner bathroom. Sure, the graphics of Indigo Prophecy
aren't Oscar gold, but its "Choose Your Own Adventure" design is something that David Fincher could never
achieve in a theater. Splice in a spine-tingling soundtrack by Angelo Badalamenti and - voilà!
- the visual indiscretions are forgiven.
