Joystiq – Gave FEZ a score of 100! – Full Review
I haven’t smiled as much while playing a game since my first multiplayer run of LittleBigPlanet, and even then I was only smiling because I was terrible and enjoyed frustrating my friends as they ran gracefully through the levels. Fez is comparable to Braid or Limbo in terms of recent indie platformers, but it is infinitely more heartwarming than Braid and less terrifying than Limbo…There’s a lot to be said for a game that can make a grown woman squeal with glee dozens of times in a playthrough.
Eurogamer – Gave FEZ a score of 100! – Full Review
The simple joy of exploration is at the very heart of the appeal of video games. In Fez, it’s absolutely unfettered.
IGN- Gave FEZ a score of 95! – Full Review
Curiosity, envy, and excitement dominate conversations about bewildering thematic patterns, creative solutions to intelligent puzzles, and unforgettable level design. Players are likely to gush about the beautiful aesthetic and childlike sense of wonder in equal measure.
I asked a few of my friends at Microsoft Studios what they thought of FEZ and this is what they had to say!
Eric “Dmzilla” Doty – Xbox.com Community Manager :
Whenever I get a full cube in Fez I find myself mimicking the look on Gomez’s face and wanting to raise my arms in the air. I haven’t felt this deeply about exploration and discovery in a game since possibly as far back as my first time playing Zelda: OoT.
Chris Charla – Xbox LIVE Arcade Portfolio Director:
What I love about Fez is I can just lose myself in it. What’s through that door? Now what’s through thatdoor? It just has this incredibly pure sense of exploration and fun that reminds me of being a kid again.
Eric “E” Neustadter - Xbox LIVE Operations:
I’ve been playing Fez the last two nights until I was falling asleep with the controller in my hands. Solving these puzzles is a ton of fun – they’re fresh, unique, and really satisfying to solve.
