CU Amiga
Fascination is a very interesting game, if only because it's something that hasn't been done in quite a while. An enjoyable plot, linked with some well thought out and logical puzzles makes for a payable adventure. Ignore the rubbish about the game '16' classification - it's just a gimmick on a game that doesn't really need one. It won't be easy completing it, but give it a go - you'll be hooked.

Amiga Mania
Now to sum it all up. Fascination is just the latest in a line of quality graphic adventures and is good for what it is. But I'm not really an adventure bunny and it takes a lot to hook me. I found this a bit awkward, slow and frustrating so it wasn't ideal for me. The graphics, though, were suitably realistic, especially the close-ups of the people and the object interaction was also easier than some members of the genre. I'll hedge my best here. If the realist graphic-adventure genre is your thing, this is a worthy purchase. There's worse, but bear in mind also that there are better.

Amiga Power
I did kind of enjoy playing it, and the Cruise For A Corpse-style game system is one of the easiest I've ever used. But it's too straightforward and limited in scope.

Amiga Format
Fascination is a pretty well-presented product. It's just a little too linear and lacks the touches which would make it feel special. Jet aircraft, pool-side cocktails and disrobed females don't really cut it.

Amiga Action
Fascination isn't the best adventure game to make its way across the channel, due to the bizarre and irrational puzzle element. Yet once you've grasped the fussy and sometimes infuriating puzzle aspect you'll probably whiz through the 20 odd screens in no time at all. Unfortunately, the crude graphics and needless porn sequences do little to improve its case.

Immer wieder greift der computerisierte Lustmolch voller Vorfreude zu den Softsex-Adventures von Muriel Tramis, immer wieder wird er enttäuscht. Beim dritten Anlauf nach „Emanuelle“ und „Geisha“ standesgemäß in dreifacher Hinsicht...

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Hier muß die Pilotin Doralice eine Ampulle Liebestropfen, auf die es auch die Unterwelt von Miami abgesehen hat, an den (Kontakt-) Mann bringen. Freilich sind wiederum bloß sämtliche Gegenstände aufzugabeln und auf alles und jeden anzuwenden, aber zumindest anspruchslose Grafik-Voyeure könnten an diesem Blick durchs digitale Schlüsselloch Gefallen finden. Oder sie warten noch ein Weilchen, schließlich steckt der Nachfolger „The Saga of Doralice“ bereits in der Pipeline...
