She Sees Red
Top Critic Average
An FMV interactive thriller that's rather light on the "interactive" element. Choices are sparse and do little to promote player agency but some solid production and a stylish, campy aesthetic save the experience.
For the domestic producers She Sees Red is certainly a huge step forward. But if you compare this project with other FMV-games like The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker and Her Story, the release of Rhinotales inferior in most parameters. And, of course, the most important drawback - the timing of 35 minutes per walkthrough – it's not so much for a game. However, if you want to try something new and watch an interactive movie with a good story before going to bed, then She Sees Red will be ok.

The execution sometimes falls a little short but for a first project you have to commend the effort and vision; the developers are right to view it as an area of untapped potential. Whether or not it’s the future of TV remains to be seen, but we could stand to have a few more experiments of this nature.
Well-acted and with an intriguing story, She Sees Red is a short FMV game that fans of the genre are sure to enjoy. But do yourself a favour and play it in a few sittings, because without a way to skip past scenes, it can be a pretty painful slog to see the game’s four endings.
She Sees Red offers solid thriller fare with good actors. The replay value is quite high due to the four offered endings. With a price of 2,99 € one does not do anything wrong here - despite the bad German subtitles.
