The goal is to roam around in an open world and solve puzzles. When that is done you are awarded with cubes or "bits" which make up a cube when you have 8 of them. These elements mark your progress throughout the game.
You make progress partly by getting through platforming segments and then furter on deciphering codes or finding different patterns in the world which lead you to a solution. The latter is something I personally look positively on because for once the player is actually required to think a bit more to make any progress.
The game presents itself in a very calm fashion with (GREAT) 8-bit ambient music and cute art style.
There are a lot of (REAAAALLYY) well hidden secrets in this game so be prepared to challenge yourself if you want to experience the most interesting parts.
Overall I think the game was definitely worth the money and I would say that any player out there who is eager to try something new and original should absolutely try FEZ.
My score is:
+ (Great) Original idea
+ Awesome sountrack
+ Calm and appealing atmosphere
- The hub based world traveling could have been better
- Some elements (black holes) where distracting at certain parts of the game… Expand
