    I got this game when it was first released and thought it was brilliant up to a point. Like you I thought the start of the story was great and the different interactions throughout were impressive. But again, towards the end I started to dislike it when it went all mystical and just seemed rushed.

    I thought if they had carried on the way the game started, it would have been a classic in my eyes.

    Played through this game in a couple sittings; thought it was awesome. Loved the climactic ending.

    I played the demo when it was first released and always meant to go back to it at some point so when it came up for a couple of quid in the Steam sale over Christmas I got it.

    Enjoying it so far, although not very far into it.

    I just failed the first button-press sequence though - when the cop knocks on the door. It flashes up so quickly it seemed impossible, especially as it was the first one encountered so I wasn't really sure what to do. Are they all going to be like that?

    Also got it on STEAM when I failed to get the regular version around here. Haven't really gotten around to playing it yet, but it certainly does seem promising.

    Quick question: since it was labelled Indigo Prophecy is it the watered-down US version of the game?

    Yes unfortunately, and apparently the US Mode change in the .ini file doesn't work on the steam game.

    They get longer, and worse. The tutorial helps introduce them though and you can set the difficulty for them quite low, so in the end they aren't all that bad.

    All you miss is one of the two sex scenes though and, tbh, it isn't much of a loss. It's awkward and quite...horrible.

    Well worth playing the but QTE does grind especially the rooftop scene which I found was trying to be too Matrix like. I agree with MacWalka the script really petered out towards the end. Trying to not to spoil but I believe the initial mystical or occult mystery theme was ruined by a more contemporary sci-fi finale.
