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.

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, ultimately, a story of romanticism set against a pragmatic realism.

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.

Because despite the game’s many flaws, Kodaka proves that he continues to make brave and bold decisions in his creations, and has still delivered a title true to his vision. While featuring an extremely constrained plot, its surprising focus on love and its excellent take on the FMV genre was a thrill to experience. I simply want even more — and for Kodaka to have the opportunity to iron out the few nitpicks I’ve mentioned above.

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.
