Critic Reviews for The Fidelio Incident

An interesting story with some beautiful scenery, but let down by half-hearted puzzling and some derivative story beats.

The interesting bits of story feel like they are being held captive, released only when you solve obvious puzzles or perform simple tasks

The Fidelio Incident can be a beautiful and touching game, but it's too often bogged down by shallow objectives.

The Fidelio Incident makes an admirable attempt to approach a difficult subject from a unique angle. But it fails to capture the emotional subtlety or artful storytelling that games like Gone Home, Firewatch and Virginia have demonstrated within the same kind of framework.

The Fidelio Incident offered little beyond a well-written and well-acted story that was far too sparsely scattered around disappointingly uninspiring gameplay.

I highly recommend The Fidelio Incident for anyone hungry for moving stories in video games.

The Fidelio Incident is a solid exploration adventure that's elevated by an interesting premise, engaging story and great voice acting.

The Fidelio Incident is a solid narrative adventure game. The actual gameplay may be light on challenge, but it does enough to feel significant without hindering the overall experience. The presentation is also well done, especially in the audio department where the music really sells the player on the mood. However, it is the story that is the real highlight, since it deals with some heavy subject matter without being too preachy. The two main actors really give the tale some humanity and emotion. For those who enjoy the narrative-heavy experience, The Fidelio Incident is definitely worth seeking out.
