[News] [X360]

Two Live titles and an Xbox Original today.

Sensible World of Soccer is just not for me, but if you like generic sports titles, why not.  Indigo Prophecy is a classic title I never had the chance to play, and I don't know if I want to spend 1200 points for it either.  But, Tempest...now that's for me. 

Xbox Originals   

Indigo Prophecy
1 Player - Rated E - 1200 Points - Quantic Dream - 2005

Indigo Prophecy is an innovative adventure game that tells the story of Lucas Kane—an ordinary man who unconsciously commits a random act of murder. Through the use of branching storylines and multiple character perspectives, players embark on an immersive adventure on par with a Hollywood thriller.

 

  • Scenario-driven adventure: Allows players to control the plot through their decisions.
  • No two story paths are identical: Replay the game through alternate decision scenarios for a different outcome.
  • Four different character choices: Play as lead character Lucas Kane, Detective Carla Valenti, Detective Tyler Miles (Carla’s partner) and Lucas' brother Marcus Kane.
  • Mental health management: Choose the correct course of action and maintain the psychological balance of each main character through 44 bone-chilling acts.
  • Multiple views: Free-flowing navigation and multi-view split-screen allows players to see what is happening in a different area of the game while playing through a particular scenario.
  • Realistic animation: Motion capture from more than 50 stuntmen and actors creates the most realistic character models, dynamic cinematics and high-caliber, Hollywood-style action sequences.
