    It’s a charming, charismatic adventure that will leave you with a smile across your face for the duration of your play.

    There’s a touch of brilliance to this game. You feel the incentive to play on, because solving a puzzle unlocks a new door and you enter into another uncharted and mysterious world. We love the music and the retro-style, pixelized art. Fez harks back to 2D classics, so if you’re anything like me, nostalgia should kick in almost instantly.

    Fez is a marvel of a game. Rotating its 2D world on the third axis transforms what would otherwise be a forgettable platformer into an instant classic. Paired with smart and satisfying puzzles, Fez provides hours of entertainment at a budget price. It is disappointing that PC controls and additional content come up short but the quality is unquestionable. Fez is a must buy.

    FEZ is one of the most accessible and best experiences you can find in the indie game scene.

    The variation of the broken-down elements of the game is such that, if you miss two or three of the dozens of screens of the game, you will have missed on something special and unique. [June 2013]

    Fez may not be as polished as its pairs, the Limbos and the Braids, but it's the indie gem we were expecting it to be. It's an ode to 8bit clichés for sure, but also a puzzler that will appeal to all the thinkers and explorers alike, filled with cuteness, an awesome soundtrack and atmosphere, and quite a load of secrets to uncover.

The vivid colors and music that gives every scene its own style and atmosphere makes every discovery and exploration worthwhile. I could not stop smiling at it and at times I would just pause to appreciate the artistry and the environment. It gives a refreshing taste of platformer and puzzle games. Expand

IIndie Game The Movie there I've found out about this game. The genre isn't my piece of cake, but I was curious about the game mechanics. I must say this game is pretty original combining 2D and 3D. The graphics are pretty, the music is relaxing. The world has a lot of details and seems to be crafted with love.
    I won't be dissing Phil Fish because he really made a game which can be advised to try to almost every gamer because it gives unique and refreshing experience.

    Mon indé à chier du jour est une daube en pixel lard vraiment dégueulasse et un parfait exemple de ces immondices indépendants en 16 couleursMon indé à chier du jour est une daube en pixel lard vraiment dégueulasse et un parfait exemple de ces immondices indépendants en 16 couleurs et au mauvais goût omniprésent. Le vague tas de pixels (on peut les compter) représente le petit bonhomme que tu dois faire sauter dans son petit monde gogol... pour récupérer des cubes dorés (sauve le monde tout carré, pixel de merde !).

    Mais il y a une astuce que le développeur indé tout fier de lui a démoulé : tu peux changer de perspective comme si c'était en trois dimensions... même si tu passes ta vie en 2D en fait. Comme le crevard de jeu indé habituel qui ne se respecte pas, cela va de soi.

    Alors, monte, sale tas de pixels sur d'autres tas de pixels pour ramasser les cubes dorés qui sont des carrés... et pivote, pivote pour les trouver ! tu parles d'un con-cept... le prix Poubelle de la connerie, ouais ! et bien répétitif avec ça... à la benne cette saleté !
