Erica is a great looking, entertaining, well-acted FMV game that shouldn't be missed, especially for the low price of ten dollars.

Short but good live-action thriller about Erica's past and the shocking truth, just with simple story.

Erica is a novel concept which fails on almost every count, unfortunately, and can't as such be recommended at all.

Even with annoying faults like duplicate choices I quite enjoyed my time going through this interactive thriller. Great cinematography and acting more than makes up for a cliché story and setting. But for a game that focuses on player choice I find the inability to view the choice tree or even custom save very limiting. It's fine for casual walkthroughs but completionist play is unnecessarily tedious.

This is a game valued accurately – although there isn’t much gameplay itself, who hasn’t paid at least this much just to watch a movie?

With each decision, the player feels closer to unraveling a mystery, all the while knowing a single playthrough will only just crack the surface.

Erica tells a boilerplate story—but tells it very well. With a fresh, intuitive interface and some of the best production values and acting ever seen in a video game, Erica feels very much like what it aspires to be—an interactive film. Erica is perhaps an odd experiment, but one well worth experiencing for gamers that enjoy trips off the beaten path.

Erica is an extremely well-done FMV thriller. It offers great atmosphere, good acting, branching story, multiple endings, plenty of replayability and all that for a very fair price. Put your prejudices against FMV titles aside and play it.

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

Erica is a great story with mystical plot, which is clearly worth the money, even if you decide to finish it just once. Only the inability to choose a chapter, some limitations of the format and the inevitable flow points of the plot cause minor disappointment.
