I have tried to download and install this game multiple times now, and it is notoriously difficult to get working. Many potential players have experienced technical issues. I would like to play the game one day...

This game sucked, I played the beta.

Not good at all.

saying a game "sucks" without giving reasons is pretty much considered a spam here as far as i know.

FEZ's concept was rather ahead of its time consider the game isn't new. The whole progression of characters is revolved around massive nation pvp is what makes the game stand out. Unfortunately the game's lackluster pve element and outdated graphics is fated to limit its popularity. I would imagine better reception if this game was ported to the West a few years ago.

The gameplay itself is what made it lackluster. It was extremely difficult to land a "hit" on somebody, the tutorial was completely nonexistent, you became level 16 INSTANTLY causing one to have a whole bunch of skills with no idea how to use any of them.



Sorry for not giving any reasons earlier.

The difficulty in landing a hit is because 1. the game's servers suck and 2. the game uses client-side collision detection. I've watched Japanese FEZ videos and the damage numbers come up much faster for them than they do for me, even when we both have the same ping. Furthermore, the client-side collision detection means that players who lag a lot are almost impossible to hit unless you can somehow lead them by 3 or 4 seconds.

They had a good idea, but cheap crappy servers and retarded netcode that only works in Japan ruins it.
