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

FEZ is a very interesting game with great perception challenge. Twist the world to the way you see fit or get an angle to a certain door of piece. one that would seem out of reach but to the bending dimensions of Gomez it could become the literal stepping stone to your goal.

BE WARNED! There is no hand holding. you get around by experimenting with the controls and the world by yourself. Its there... you just need to find it.

The aesthetic is quite breathtaking for what everything is made of. The contrast of colors and enviroments really gives a sense of beauty to the world.

This game bring back memories of old school adventure games. You are thrust out into an unknown world- Now Explore it!

IMHO- 8/10 recomended

Review:

Today’s game of the day is FEZ, a sort of puzzle platformer with the twist of using 3d thinking in a 2d world. Now I know, and indeed have played and enjoyed, many other games in this genre, things like monument valley and the like are a staple of my mobile gaming as well, so I am no stranger to the genre of dimensional movement in games, but FEZ still managed to keep me entertained in a way that most of those other games do not. First, the game manages to maintain a cohesive and interesting storyline while breaking down puzzles into logical pieces without interrupting the flow. The rotation of the character in the 3d space is seamless and lends itself perfectly to puzzles, making the game easy to learn without sacrificing the potential for extremely difficult puzzles. The graphics are absolutely gorgeous for pixelated 2d sprites, and the 3d vectorized graphics do not detract from the overall feel of the game, nor do they feel out of place in the world. The sound design is fantastic, and though the keyboard controls are a bit odd, they are easy enough to get used to, and using the steam controller makes things even easier.

Now I admit to being a sucker for retro gaming, so games like this already have a solid place in my heart, FEZ, however, kept me entertained in a way that many retro games currently do not. The gameplay mechanic was interesting enough, and the concept strong enough that I honestly had to stop myself at the 60 minute timer. I fully intend to go back to playing this once I’m done writing here; this will probably be my spare time quick play game for a while. I cannot recommend this enough. Buy Buy Buy!

Game’s Fate: Kept. Will go back and play more after posting. Will probably continue to play and play and play.
Buy/No Buy: The most delightful Indie game I’ve played in forever, and indeed one of the most interesting platformers i've played so far in my reviews. Buy and play, like right now. Stop reading and buy.
