    The story is beautifully haunting, with flawed characters yet a deep undercurrent of pure, unadulterated love. It is about taking time for emotions to ebb and flow before moving from one scene to another. About understanding what motivates a person’s actions. About life and death and every incredible or miserable memorable moment. On a personal level, Fragments of Him has reminded me to be kind and empathetic, and love with my whole heart; my life has been made better through the experience.

    It is a good story and is touching. It’s just not going to be for everyone as a game.

    The captivating narrative is enough to see past the flaws. Hankies at the ready; this is a true tear-jerker. [Dec 2017, p.93]

    Even though it has lots of shortcomings and it’s not suitable for everyone, Fragments of Him deals with sensitive subjects in a delicate way and offers a unique two-hour journey to the human emotions.

    If you can forgive the technical faux pas, the somewhat creepy mannequin people, the absence of any memorable music and the bare bones gameplay, there's a fantastic story buried underneath the rubble. All of the characters are three dimensional and real, the voice acting feels authentic, and the writing is smart but never preachy. At its core, Fragments of Him is just a poignant story of love and loss. It showcases Will and his partner's relationship as normal and pedestrian. It's almost mundane. But this approach is all the more effective when something that should just be normal and average is treated as such. Based on the title of the game, you can kind of assume where the narrative is likely heading to, but the journey there, while bumpy, is one worth taking.

    Fragments of Him is a well thought out story that ultimately is undone by its gameplay choices. By trying to make gamers interact with the story more, the story became even more inaccessible. While I can appreciate the sentiment that Sassybot was gunning for, the delivery ended up being the undoing of a compelling storyline.

    Fragments of Him feels like an incomplete package, a short and quite disappointing experience that fails to go satisfyingly deeper in its character development and to move us.
