Death Come True
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.
Ultimately, the overall conventionality of Death Come True means that it is not a title with any great staying power. It doesn’t really manage to try anything new, though the level of production shows that there is absolutely a potential future for FMV games. It’s certainly enjoyable and at its best as the clues are dropped and there are still parts of the mystery to uncover, but expectations should be tempered accordingly.
