Critic Reviews for Fran Bow

Come for the artwork and soundtrack, stay for the compelling mystery. Fran Bow slips a bit on the details, but its charm wins out.

Fran Bow has been getting some hefty praise, but it really isn't all that and a bag of chips.

Amazing game with a questionable ending, While its worth ones time and money, the story might not be meant for everyone.

Fran Bow sends you down a rabbit hole to nowhere.

While a scattershot finale and outdated point-n-click mechanics diminish Fran Bow's broader appeal, there are enough positives for adventure fans to appreciate this vividly horrific Wonderland.

Fran Bow made me smile more than any other game I've played this year. That might come as a surprise if all you've seen of the game is a couple of screenshots feauring gore and dead kids. Fran Bow opens with a gory murder scene and then traps its young protagonist in a creepy institution for (criminally?) insane children. But that initial setting and the dark tone are just a small slice of a story that spans worlds and perfectly captures the beautiful, delightful nonsense of Alice's Adventures, an inspiration that is imprinted on the game.
