Felix the Reaper Reviews
Felix the Reaper's protagonist is a joy to watch in motion, but every other part of this frustrating puzzle game fails to match that level of charm.
Felix starts dancing and, suddenly, you want to stand up and dance too. Felix the Reaper has style, and some challenging puzzles, but unfortunately the two sides never collide. Nevertheless, a solid performance by our dancing reaper (and his developers too).

Even Felix’s sweet, sweet dance moves can’t throw the game’s glaring design flaws into shadow.
Felix the Reaper is a dark romantic-comedy puzzle game that shows promise with its loads of personality, but it's held back by overly simple gameplay.
Felix the Reaper at times leans into its quirky and unique art style. However, the biggest disconnect comes with the effort to unify this with gameplay. Puzzles often feel like a grind, leaving little mastery when all things are said and done.
Felix the Reaper is an excellent game on paper, but its execution dooms it. While the unique concept shines—and I doubt I'll be forgetting such a lovable face of death anytime soon—the actual gameplay made it a bit of a slog.
Casual fans of this type of genre may find Felix The Reaper to be too difficult after a certain point (the hint button can only help so much); however, this may be right up the alley for those who crave a serious challenge.
Felix the Reaper will be a game with which we can spend an afternoon helping our achuchable companion to get the attention of his beloved. We should not expect the best story, although the approach in the gameplay will be very original, and a reason to give it a try. In addition, it is on Xbox Game Pass, so it is easier than ever to give it a try.

Driven by an exquisite and eclectic soundtrack, Felix the Reaper is a fun and challenging puzzle game. Too easy or too difficult depending on the way the player makes use of the cheats, this title may not delight all fans of the genre but it's rather likeable.

Demanding puzzles with a charming main character and night-black humor. But the camera work pulls it down

Felix the Reaper is a puzzle game that does not put any structural ambition on the plate, but aims to unequivocally communicate its essence, direct and without frills as its dancing protagonist.

A quirky love story of life, death and bureaucracy, Felix the Reaper is as effortlessly charming as it is relentlessly challenging in the puzzle department.
A wretched, annoying puzzle game that consists primarily of tedious busywork. While Felix the Reaper has bags of personality, a vein of dark humour, and the inimitable voice of Sir Patrick Stewart, it regrettably isn't nearly as fun as it looks. As far as I'm concerned, Felix can go dance off the edge of a cliff.
Even if puzzle games aren't really your thing, the standard of writing and quality of Felix's dancing are too good to pass up. If puzzle games are for you, then look no further than Felix the Reaper.
More puzzle types would have done Felix the Reaper a lot of good, but what's here is extremely charming and quite a bit of fun.
While it has its occasional little issues here and there, Felix the Reaper stands out as one of the year's best puzzlers.
Amusing dance with Death and with voice of Sir Patrick Stewart.

Felix the Reaper is a challenging puzzle game that is supposed to be a romantic comedy about life and death, but for some reason leaves the romance and some of the comedy aspects out of almost the entire game.
The way that Felix the Reaper is packaged together, and the light-hearted nature of it all, does drag you back in. It’s charming nonsense, and with plenty of additional options to replay levels to challenge yourself further, it won’t be a game you’re done with in a hurry either, once it has its hooks into you.
Felix the Reaper is a fun puzzler that nails some of the most important aspects: difficulty, level design, and style. While the environments may not be as varied and the controls not as well executed, the title works well and should be on the radar of anyone who's fond of solving puzzles as a dancing Grim Reaper.
