  • Alex from Taranto, Italywow,if notice There's a hinted/hidden reference to Santa Monica's Blv in Hollywood,a street full of prostitues and drug traffic.
    maybe he is hinting that the girlfriend leave him to become a protitute...who knows!
  • Logan from Troy, MtI did play Indigo Prophecy, and everything was almost perfect. The soundtrack was fantastic, the story was almost near perfect, and the gameplay was pretty awesome. I wished it was a bit more coherent in some parts, but it was almost sitting in the greatness part of the Greatest games I ever played list.

    And the song was completely awesome. The last time I heard Credit music that great with a video game was Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
  • Garoud from Arica, Chilesorry to post twice, but I really really listened to this song...and by some reason I think the man in the song killed his girlfriend...anyone else thinks that way?
  • Garoud from Arica, Chileabsolutely a good song...but if you havent seen it on the game can go easily dismissed...too bad, Indigo prophecy has very good themes
  • Corey from Cheney, WaThis song is absolutely amazing... Nothing less... I can't stop listening to it
