    Game of the decade for me so far. The amazing graphics are so in detail that every single frame of the game is practically a perfect composition. I love this game so much I was the 5th person to 209.40% this game on the PS3. The game just sorta drops you in and then you get to explore everything and solve it all without an overbearing guide. It's a canvas of a game just waiting to be painted by your brain. Expand

    It's a 2D platformer set in a 3D world. It does something completely new with the genre. Something that has never been done before. Having trouble finding a path? A simple tap of the trigger will turn the 3D world left or right so you can explore a whole other side to the level in 2D. It's brilliant and basically is like a reinvention of the wheel.

    This single gameplay hook is what sets it apart and almost makes it feel like a genre all it's own. There is also an insane amount of content, most of which is tied to some of the most ingenious puzzles ever invented. Some of them are incredibly deep, and require you to do things like learn a unique alphabet created specifically for this game. Others will test your decoding skills to the max. Solving each one leads to cubes or some other collectible that will help you truly complete the game. Their rewarding to complete to say the least.

    There's also great joy to be found in both the platforming and exploration. The games size is massive and filled with many worlds to explore, each with their own unique theme or gameplay element. It's always exciting to find a new world and explore it. There are secrets hidden everywhere. However the game's size is also related to it's only flaw; the map. As you discover new areas the map can get very crowded and can be difficult to navigate or make sense of, making it a pain to backtrack to previously discovered levels.

    Overall though "Fez" is a genius game that takes the 2D-platformer genre and turns in on it's head. Very rarely do we see something so original hit the gaming market anymore, and with this high-level of quality and brilliant game design. It's unlike anything you've ever played before, and simply must be experienced. My total score for the game is a 9.5/10.

    Cheery, unique, creative puzzler with lots of content. I can't believe this game was made by one or two people. What an incredible achievement. The game has a lot to explore but it can get a bit repetitive. A good game to play in short bursts. Expand
