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

Very cool concept with loads of great puzzles, especially in the first half of the game. The second half just has too many intellectual puzzles to keep me going. Unfortunate, but no disaster. I still liked the playthrough a lot until 100% of the game, also because of the fact that Fez looks and sounds very well (aspects that can make a big difference for me).
One of the best platformers I’ve ever played, no doubt about that. Not the best for sure, but surely one to remember.

A very nicely-done pixel-nostalgia puzzle game. It goes on a bit long, and is somewhat difficult to navigate between all the different "worlds", but overall is worth playing to the end.

At first I thought this was just stupid Super-Mario like game, but I still tried it. Now, so much time later I am still playing it, trying to figure out all of the puzzles. Loving it.
10/10

Beautiful yet somewhat challenging game. I loved playing it, figuring out the puzzles (even if I did have to look a few up) and having the sense of completion when you got every single item in the game. 11/10 would play again

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.

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.

Short answer: this is a masterpiece.

Long answer: it is sad that most people would turn down this amazing experience just because they care much more about the hate they feel towards its developer, whose opinions and points of view got taken way out of context by the media. Those people miss an excellent opportunity to be immersed in an unique platformer whose environment is breathtaking and truly puzzling. I'm so happy I discovered this work of art and I would do anything to make its sequel see the light of day. But I guess good things come in small packages, and Fez offers more than enough.

I think this game is fun! People who like fun puzzle games, with no enemies coming to hurt you, and it's just you exploring the world, then this is one of the best (in my opinion) one of those games out there! It's fun, sometimes confusing and hard, but worth buying and worth the time. I suggest this game to you, and you should share this game with your friends!

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.
