Well shot, well acted, well crafted - Erica is a high-class FMV game for a new age.

The dreamlike way Erica flows from scene to scene is also both a strength and a weakness. There are no hiccups or stutters in the narrative, but it also hides the major turning points of the story, or at least the moments when my decisions really make a difference. It's going to be interesting to go back and try again, making different choices. The relatively short running time gives that option extra appeal, especially if you're surrounding yourself with new people who don't know what's going to happen.

Erica is a carefully executed, harmonic clash of film and game that tells a great mystery in a memorable way.

An intruiguing multi-choice adventure, Erica does almost anything new but offer a interesting story and great replayability.

Audience Reviews

To put it simply, Erica was a disappointment--this is what I get for being attracted to excellent cover art! Admittedly Erica is the first full motion video (FMV) game I’ve ever played, so it’s possible I might take issue with the genre as a whole instead of this particular title. Upon booting up the game you’re prompted to download the companion “Erica App PS4” on your smartphone
