Reviews

"Fez is joyful. [...] There's a lot to be said for a game that can make a grown woman squeal with glee dozens of times in a playthrough (especially a game that doesn't star Hello Kitty). In short, the long wait for Fez is entirely worth it. Play it, and I dare you not to smile."
100% – Joystiq

"The game's unique artwork, its perspective-shift mechanic, its nostalgia for the 16-bit years and its bewitchingly strange setting all exist in total harmony and make a single, deliberate statement."
10/10 – Eurogamer

"The sum of Fez’s intelligent level designs, perception mechanic, massive number of stages and secrets, and incredible art is so much more than just a shout-out to old-school gaming. Fez is a game in love with games."
9.5/10 – http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/04/11/fez-review

Solid puzzle platformer. However, the game requires you to manually decipher messages and directions, which really slows things down. I've only felt frustrated a few times, though.

I've got Fez on GOG.com, Steam and XBOX Live, and I don't regret it. A solid platformer with great heart.

Brilliant music, sound controls and gameplay and tantalizing puzzles.

VERY VERY highly recommended (although from what I've seen in the indie game movie, Phil Fish is a ******)

Seriously, buy it.

This game is so fantasically fun. The atmosphere, especially the music, make it a wonderful experience that you can sink in to all day, and the platforming is unique enough to keep you interested.

Pretty, but feels pointless. The novelty wears off quickly. If you finish this game, congratulations, you have a LOT of patience.

Screw the Phil Fish haters, this is an awesome and challenging game with many hours of secrets and puzzles (some still unsolved) that should be in everyone's collection.

All in all, it is a cute moderately difficult puzzle game based around changing the perspective plane to see and interact with a three dimensional world. Good mix of fun and difficult.

Art is cute. The pixel art has been used plenty before but the game manages to lend itself towards that style for sake of the story. Puzzles are hard but not bad. Each one you finish feel like you accomplished something. Definitely made for a controller in mind. I played on my keyboard and it was hard to get some of the finer movements down but not impossible. The story was interesting at first then shattered there at the end with unreadable text and very few helpful "hints". It may be better to do the new game plus for more information but for an initial playthrough it was confusing. Something about owls? And that ending... I mean, just... why?

Love Fish or hate him, only a cynically biased person could resist praising this game. It's a masterpiece.

Famous for good reason, it's one of those must-have games. You explore a 2D/3D world and solve puzzles along the way.

Pros:

The graphics and gameplay are unique and epic.

There's a huge amount of content to keep you going for many hours.

A lot of effort was put into this, never mind all the stupid politics surrounding the developers.

Cons:

Extreme difficulty! You will find yourself googling many of the solutions, some of which are just ridiculous. Never mind though.

I got stuck (literally, trapped) on a level for about 2 years before I eventually discovered how to use the navigation properly.

I didn't knew about the "drama" when I bought this game.
I like puzzle games and the trailer looked promising.
I bought it and I'm not disappointed.
And after I discovered about the "drama", I don't care about that guy.
He released a great product and I'm happy with it.

It's a puzzle platformer. Some flash games experimented with changing perspectives, but this is the first game I know that does it really well. You can change your side of view by pressing triggers. This way you can make platforms, move bomb explosions from one side to another and discover secrets. Speaking of secrets. This game is a pain-in-the-♥♥♥ easter egg hunt. Most puzzles are really mind blowing and fun. Some of them were just made for brainiacs. I completed this game without walkthroughs, of course, but I would never get all 64 cubes. Not even that, one cube got glitched and I couldn't complete the game, because I only had 63 cubes. The game is still worth playing.

The best thing about this game is soundtrack. There are mostly ambients and retro-style music pieces and I really love them. Flow is my favourite followed by Nature.

Grab yourself a pen and paper and a ton of patience. You're going to need them. Completing this game without a walkthrough is a lot of fun. It's kinda like a meta game, because at one part you have to be in one spot on the exact minute, hour, month or year. Wow.
I can just say... keep calm and solve puzzles.

Fez is Phil Fish's stupendous indie tour-de-force, focussing on a little dude who learns to conquer the world of 3D!

Fez is incredibly addictive and pleasant to play. As Phil himself states in Indie Game: The Movie, it's a stop and smell the flowers kind of game. I spent 15 hours fully completing this game and loved every minute of it. Genuinely one of my favourite games ever.

There's puzzling, platforming and cute quirks everywhere. A wonderful and fun game for everyone. Wanna enjoy the experience even more? Watch Indie Game The Movie before playing and appreciate the amount of time and effort put into this wonderful creation.
