    A deep and fascinating first person puzzle/adventure/exploration/whatever game, with a lot of content by itself, even if you don't care about the nice music editor you can unlock by finishing it.

    Fract OSC is an oddity. It's a game about electronic music that is first and foremost a glorious organic whole, with all the elements and puzzles of its beautiful world intricately connecting to each other. And it's really good. [May 2014]

    Fract is an awesome audiovisual experience. If you like electronic music, you can dive into an ocean filled with impressive imagination.

    FRACT proves that it’s through your own creative input that you can continue to surprise yourself beyond those initial magical moments. It’s true that FRACT isn’t the most mind-bending puzzle game out there or the most powerful music production software on the market; its triumph is in forging a middle path.

    By the end of Fract, I was like a club's in-house repairman. With a little spit and patience, I could fix the machine. I could fill the world with light and sound. I could start the party. Sure, I was alone, but I also had the best seat in the house: everything tuned by me for me.

    At its best, Fract is a wonderful celebration of a videogame’s capacity to ignite your senses. At its worst, it can be a downright chore.

    + Visually stunning world that achieves a lot with a little
    + Intellectually challenging puzzles that cover a few interesting mechanics
    + For the most part, ties the aural experience well with the gameplay experience, though sometimes the "music" is sparse and not that interesting
    ? Offers no overt guidance to the player as to how to navigate the world or solve puzzles, but an intelligent player can figure out the majority of it
    ? The world outside of the puzzles is filled with oddities that react to the player, but have unclear ramifications
    - Some puzzles are far too oblique in their design and simply are brute-forced through trial and error
    - The layout and pathing of the world can be infuriating in some places, with a ton of unnecessary empty space
    - The lack of a jump button and the slowness of movement can be frustrating

There is no direction in this game, it's easy to miss what changes. Running is too slow. I wish it had a bit of direction, especially early on. Overall just frustrating, running around being lost... I had no idea I'd have to memorize anything. The puzzles were more annoying than fun. Sorry this game is just totally unintuitive. Expand
