    If you don't like puzzles like the reviewer, don't play this game.

    Game is awesome, love the puzzles, sometimes they are hard, sometimes you stumble upon the answer, sometimes you really have to think about the answer for a long time and it comes to you. if you like...

    Open World, Puzzles, Check Map Often.

    To be honest, I just bought it and played a few hours. I haven't have much hard time with the difficulty actually. I have already collected 16 cubes and 2 anti-cubes without going into the special cub...

    Fresh, charming, stylish and thought provoking, but not one for platform fans who like stomp on brains.

    Fez is charming, haunting, and challenges one to dig deep into its world and one's self for answers.

    Today, objectives in many games, even the ones that claim to be open-ended and exploratory, are laid out before the player along with the means to win. With Fez, Polytron has attempted to combine side...

    Turning the Right Direction

    Rated on July 09, 2012 by sh811a

    Imagine a platform action game with no evil, unfortunately about 90% of them always have evil to fight including onces that are possitive. This game is something different because it has no evil to f...

    Fez's framerate issues and abstract puzzles are extremely taxing, but incredibly rewarding and worth every minute.

    Rated on July 15, 2012 by zophar53

    Among artsy indie games, there have been a lot of compelling puzzle-platformers in recent years. Games like Braid, Limbo and Closure may at times take themselves a bit too seriously, but they still ra...

    Stunning, delightful and deeper than you can imagine.

    Rated on January 08, 2013 by contentxcontext

    It's important to point out that Fez is a title that comes with a little more coverage and anticipation then most Arcade titles, having been awarded many plaudits and high praise even before its relea...

    Fez plays like a love letter to classic Japanese games from long ago.

    Rated on March 27, 2013 by Anonymoe

    Pros: Worlds are a joy to explore; Gorgeous faux-pixel art; Neat puzzles Cons: Some puzzles are irritatingly cryptic; Controls don't feel tight It's a shame that a lot of people have chosen to ...

    It's a nice little game.

    Rated on May 04, 2013 by margevich

    Unfortunately little is not a compliment this time. The world of Fez may me huge, I don't really know yet since I only played it for an hour or two, but there's very little to do in this world - that ...

    An attempt for an Indie Game with purpose, fails miserably.

    Rated on August 03, 2013 by Gezo24

    Interesting concept, an entirely Gay/Lesbian devolopement team decided to make a game to support the LGBT community, resulting in Fez. However, the end result is far from "happy", if you catch my dri...
