The short but sweet live-action story of Death Come True gets you wound up in its mystery--but it's over far too soon.

When it comes to gameplay and longevity, Death Come True suffers from the exact same issues as many titles in the FMV genre without breaking new ground. But Izanagi's engrossing tale of love, regret, and murder redresses the balance with superb performances, dramatic twists, and a genuinely impassioned climax. It's a short, somewhat expensive trip, but one worth taking when it hits your personal price-point.

Death Come True is a fascinating and well-directed interactive movie with interesting characters, multiple choices, and the replay options, which are unlikely to open up additional layers of story, but will leave you with the best impressions. The purely Japanese atmosphere of the project with a reference to the classics of detectives and horror should please fans of the genre.

A strong cast helps Death Come True be an engaging experience, even when the central mechanic isn't used to its best effect.

Death Come True is a great FMV game from a creative mind. The characters and choices you make are really interesting, and everything is wrapped up quite nicely. I don't think players will have anything to return to in the long term, but the experience is enjoyable while it lasts. Hop into a strange hotel and let the journey take care of you.

Death Come True is, ultimately, a story of romanticism set against a pragmatic realism.

Short and fun experience, the mystery and actors performance charm you to the end but it's affected by the simplicity of the story's general idea.

Death Come True is an experimental piece of media that tells an incredibly intricate tale, which is only enhanced by the way it chooses to tell its story. The game aims to bridge the gap between visual novels, games, and film so that fans of all three forms of media could enjoy it. The developers did their best with the budget they had access to, but sadly, that came at the cost at some elements being untranslated and a shortened runtime.

Death Come True is an interesting interactive cinematic FMV experience which fans of the genre will love. Running at around three hours per-playthrough, it’s much longer than similar games whilst offering you a reason to replay the entire game in order to unlock the other pathways and the second ‘ending’ (as you can’t reload once you’ve made your choice). The acting is of a very high standard with customary moments of sheer madness and wacky interactions based upon the options you choose, once again enticing you to explore every option you’re given – even if some are there merely for show and don’t alter anything.
