Great graphics show off the PlayStations abilities to the Max. Atmospheric background music adds greatly to the game. Loads of levels to complete, thus giving the game longevity. Both Adventure and shoot-em-up fans should feel at home with this one. This game is great if you are looking for another resident evil type game or just want an adventure game that`s lots of fun but also adds puzzles to solve. Either way I recommend you get this game and I promise you will enjoy it for a long time!
Apart from this annoying feature, there is very little to fault F2B for playability. With three difficulty levels, and set over 13 massive levels with bonus rooms, the game will certainly take a while to complete. However, despite the excellent storyline and taut drama, Resident Evil just pips it at the post for blood-curdling tension. Nevertheless F2B is a very innovative and superbly implemented game, and if you like the idea of a properly animated 3-D romp, as opposed to the static backdrops of Resident Evil, then Fade to Black is the perfect alternative.
All Game Guide
If you can look past the camera problems and the challenge, you'll find that Fade to Black is an enjoyable game. It's really fun and has a long and involved quest. The story is really good and pulls you in until the end, just as any good game should. So, if you were a fan of Flashback or are just looking for a challenging action/adventure game, Fade to Black shouldn't disappoint.
Overall, the control scheme is simple enough, and the character responds well. The pace is fast and most of the puzzles are fairly straightforward. One drawback is that the enemy AI is almost a little too good - you tend to die a lot. You also have to manually save the game as you go, which can be a little maddening. In the end, Fade To Black is a solid graphic adventure with far more to recommend it than not.
