I'm a bit surprised there hasn't been more of an uproar over the game being censored.

Wait until they try to censor a Halo game, then you'll see uproar.

It's unlikely a patch will be available to unlock the original content either, since it's said the ESRB was antsy about any hidden material left on the CD.

From what I hear, some sex scenes including one "interactive" one were cut, some characters had clothes put on when previously they were nude. In all honesty, probably not a big deal.

I don't even mind missing the sex and nudity all that much, (god knows there are plenty of Japanese "adventure" games in that genre) but I have a hard time justifying buying the censored/edited version to myself. Likely I'll import it at some point.

There are actually four endings in the demo. The fourth ending has Lucas wind up in an asylum crazy. You have to have your feeling meter hit the bottom for this to happen, and its doable.

As for the message, I think it may be a bit misleading saying "also known as Indigo Prophecy is now avaiable in Europe". It is also known as Indigo, but Indigo isn't available anywhere except the US and is a censored version. Sure I understood what he was saying, but maybe others wont?

As I recall, it was some sex scenes that were heavily censored and/or removed.
I'm lazy - I'll get the US version.
Wondering if I mentioned w0000000t yet?,

I have mine on order from www.gameplay.uk.com. The American version is censored; so, I bought the game from the UK. The American censored version is named Indigo Prophecy, the 'as originally intended by the creators version' is named Fahrenheit.

Do you know how badly the US version was censored? If it was too badly, I will order the UK version, but the shipping is expensive for me right now and if the censoring doesn't heavily distort the story, I may have to go with the US version if I want to play this soon.

PC Zone UK gave it 90%.

I pre-ordered and it arrived this morning (GMT). I've been playing it all day and got to 46% completion (so the game tells me). Make of that what you will.

Don't want to give anything away but so far I'm loving it. Should have some replay value too.

Three? I gotta get my demo back out! I got arrested, and got away in the cab. What was the third ending? (this is a really short demo, so I don't think spoiler rules apply here)

You can go down the subway, not a really something to go back and play the demo for.

The game also got a good review from Pc Zone in the Uk about 85% IIRC. Also Edge Magazine Reviewed the console version and gave it 8/10.

In the demo you pick many different paths, I think I went through 3 distinct endings.

This is basically a console adventure game isn't it?
In that the controls probably work a little better on the consoles, yes - the Xbox does feel very suited to the game. Otherwise, it's just your average action-adventure-puzzler-sneaker-psychological-thriller. You know, just like... Erm...
