    The Complex offers commendable acting and writing and a genuine sense of excitement to go with its interactive movie experience. However, most of the endings are quite similar and unsatisfying, and player choices often don't have much effect on the overall narrative. Still, considering the game costs the same price as a weeknight movie theater ticket, but with the added benefit of some novel interactivity, The Complex could make for a refreshingly unique, albeit short, movie night.

    The Complex is a cleverly made interactive movie with an intriguing sci fi plot that eerily parallels the real world.

    The Complex puts the player in the middle of a sci-fi themed interactive movie where the choices in each scene (but not just) will influence the plot development. The game does a decent job at that, keeping the player interested in the story but it would be more enjoyable and welcoming if it featured a flowchart for the player's choices and if its plot got rid of some clich├ęs.

    Not even in the darkest fantasies of Whales Interactive could the studio have imagined a better setting to launch its interactive film. It is a pity that despite having included experiences that improve its gameplay the title doesn't manage to be at the level of previous games.

    The Complex is a decently serviceable FMV game that has an ambitious relationship mechanic that drives choices forward. However, with some odd presentation choices and limited freedoms, this feels more like a midday movie matinee than a crowd-pleasing blockbuster.
