I'm frankly pretty happy that I write for a website that doesn't run news stories. The day that Phil Fish made his now infamous broad-stroke comments about Japanese games (”they suck”) was the day that I realized that reading comments on news stories...

Still, Fez is quite a game, especially for people who look for interesting atmosphere and setting in their games. It’s not particularly difficult, and there are definitely people who will look at this, see how little conflict the game features (or...

Phil Fish lied to you. After five long years of development, he would have you believe that Fez, the indie darling that collected its fair share of

Fez is actually two different games. Only one of them is the game you were promised. I like the other game much better.

Fez is the long-awaited puzzle platformer from indie developer Polytron. Announced way back in 2007 with an original release date of 2010 the game has already received two Independent Game Festival awards before it was even released.

Small problems occasionally get in the way, but Fez has such intricate puzzles and enticing aesthetics that it's still an engaging journey.

Inviting, charming visual design ; Varied and catchy soundtrack ; Challenging puzzles that require serious dedication to solve ; Novel screen-rotation mechanic

Convoluted map ; Unclear when you have enough knowledge to solve puzzles ; Performance issues

These background images could be the key to revealing every secret that exists in this world, or they could be graffiti to keep your eyes occupied while you jump around. It's hard to say what meaning they hold, so you press on. Carvings on trees and in...

A platformer where the world is a playground and a puzzle? Fez is a big, intelligent, must-own marvel.

The sum of Fez’s intelligent level designs, perception mechanic, massive number of stages and secrets, and incredible art is so much more than just a shout-out to old-school gaming. Fez is a game in love with games. It has a respect for classic ideals...

Still just a game....

Beautiful pixel graphics; That you can turn over and around and see even more of; Mind-flexing platforming; Tons to discover, many doors to open

In a ratty tangle of an overworld; Confusing maps; And nagging glitches

Literally everything feels "pixel-perfect", whether you're climbing as high as you can on a tower of overgrowth or rotating a neon-soaked building finding a glowing bit in some back alley. Fez is an achievement in art design.

FEZ Hands-On Preview

 

Games that oscillate between 2D and 3D perspectives are old news. Super Paper Mario? Turned there. Lost in Shadow? Flipped that. So what does Polytron and Trapdoor's upcoming downloadable title FEZ offer that hasn't been done before? It's seamless.

Fez is a 2D platformer in a massive 3D world.

Fez is more than just a game. It's a perfect balance between platformer, puzzler, and explorable experience. It's a love letter to retro gaming. It's a hypnotic look inside the mind of one of gaming's more controversial figures. I would even say it's a...

For what is a very reasonable price of 800MSP, Fez is a game that will give you hours of gameplay. There are still questions unanswered, even with the collective mind of the internet...

Massive world to discover ; Greatly constructed puzzles ; Intuitive controls

World map can get confusing ; Some glitches
