Or head into God Mode to create the land on which your city will grow, and even create natural disasters like erupting volcanoes and tornadoes to test your city's resilience. With the SimCity 4 Rush Hour Expansion Pack included, players will also be able to have the ultimate level of control over your city's transportation network by completely taking charge of roads, rail, air, waterways, and even vehicles.

In its heyday, Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy was considered a breakthrough in interactive narrative, teetering between the worlds of cinema and gaming.

With a chilling musical score by famed Hollywood composer Angelo Badalamenti, Fahrenheit lets you take control of the narrative through four different playable characters, each illuminating a different perspective of the story.
