    The perfect package of platforming, abstract thinking, and retro love. [Issue#243, p.60]

    Fez is a resounding success, marrying a stunning score, innovative gameplay and a gorgeous art direction into a complete interwoven package. Little Gomez's journey is one of discovery and wonder and should rightfully find its home on PlayStation 4's across the land.

    Phil Fish has forced me to put more thought into playing a video game than I would have initially liked, but I feel like a better gamer for it. I used to think that the joy of exploration and unbridled sense of discovery was lost to the games of consoles past, but Fez has not only proven me completely wrong, but it has given me hope for the future.

    The game may never live down the notoriety of its designer but this is still one of the most entertaining and imaginative indie games of the last decade.

I had no idea it was coming to ps4 but to my surprise there it was on the store. I instantly downloaded it and started a game with my 8 year old daughter and we were not disappointed.

    Fez is a beautifully crafted unique gem of a game. The graphics are in an 8 bit style with cutesy characters all rendered in stunning HD. The music and sound are enchanting and the gameplay is superb. You are tasked with finding gold cubes on each platform world all linked together through doors to other universes. But this is not just a simple platformer. You have to rotate the world 90 degrees at a time to see all angles of the structure you have to climb. So in order to solve puzzles you have to start thinking of all sides of the 360 degree world. It can at time get confusing but is very fun when you get the rhythm.

    I really enjoyed the game and my daughter loves the game too and has played through on her own as well. You can tell the developer has poured his heart and soul into perfecting the game, and it shows. A unique and beautiful game, I highly recommend it to all.

The atmosphere of this game is extremely relaxing, and the game wants you to get lost in it, quite literally. There is no right or wrong way to go in Fez, and that is one of my favourite elements of it. The puzzles in Fez are quite well balanced, ranging from the simpler platforming puzzles needed to complete the story, all the way to extremely cryptic brain crunchers for the completionists. Fez also tells a neat little story through its world, if you're observant enough to pick it up, and observant is what you'll have to be if you want full completion of this game. I cannot recommend Fez enough, whether you just want to relax and play a stress free platformer or if you're looking for a deep puzzling challenge, Fez just keeps on giving. Expand

    I can see why some people like this game as it is kind of innovative but I thought it was just plain boring. I understand that you can changeI can see why some people like this game as it is kind of innovative but I thought it was just plain boring. I understand that you can change perspective and platforms that are not accessible in one perspective might be in another. It's cool, no doubt. I just think the game itself is a borefest. You need to collect cubes to open doors to the next stage and solve some puzzles along the way... I do think that this game is overrated and it may be innovative but it takes more than that to be a good game, a game needs to be fun, to some it is, to me it's not. Flower was overrated as well and was boring as hell...I'm not going to say "do not buy it" because a lot of people seem to enjoy this game, but my personal opinion is that I just didn't like it but I did think it was innovative...
