    At the time of this writing, Fray has vastly improved from its initial release. If Brain Candy remains as hardworking and quick as it has been, the game will only get better, and fast.

    Fray is a promising plan that never quite comes together.

    A limited online community and a myriad of bugs hurts Fray, a turn-based strategy game.

    Fray is not ready for prime time. It's not particularly exciting even when it works, and right now, it just doesn't work.

    Fray is one of the many games that's been released way too soon. The potential is definitely there, but rarely do we see games that are littered with bugs like this one. These bugs make Fray unplayable and it should never have been released in this state.

    There's not a whole lot to say about Fray that hasn't been said before about countless other games that were unnecessarily rushed out the door half-cooked. Neither its features nor its execution are worth the asking price.

    Broken in nearly every single aspect, Fray fails to meet any criteria that would qualify it as a game. Do not buy. [Sept 2012, p.57]

    The original release of this game was an unmitigated disaster - many people got stuck on the login screen and were unable to progress further. With the release of the updated Reloaded Edition, this game is lightyears ahead of the catastrophic initial launch. The initial launch was like a poorly tested beta, this finally feels like a polished and finished release. The team is definitely dedicated to improving and expanding this game even further.

    On the gameplay side, this will appeal to fans of tactical/turn based squad sims, like XCOM and Jagged Alliance. The gameplay is a bit more fast paced, but well balanced.

    Thanks to Brain Candy team. You've done a great job.

    An admittedly broken game by the developers and Steam whole-heartedly refuse any kind of refunds for the game unless you bring up the BBB. What happened to you Valve? Hats, Mann-conomy store in tf2, Dota 2, Mann-conomy store in Dota 2, STILL no episode 3 and now you're pulling sh!t like this? Expand

    Despite the Steam store page saying nothing about it, the developers admit on their forums that it is an ALPHA quality game - not even to beta yet. Top it off, it just doesn't work. None of us could get it to run. One day it may be an awesome game. Unfortunately that day is far off. Hold onto your money or go buy a known indie game. Expand

    This isn't so much a game as it is a login screen with pretty much no functional content. It's virtually impossible to successfully start or join a game, and if you do manage to, there isn't much game there. I don't mind pre-release functionality in a pre-release game, but it's dishonest to sell your buggy tech demo as a finished product. Expand
