Fate by Numbers je skvěle vypadající noir adventura, která staví na neobvyklém grafickém zpracování a atmosféře tak hutné, že by se dala krájet. Pokud máte rádi detektivní filmy, rozhodně se do FbN pusťte, zcela určitě budete spokojeni.
Nevertheless, I really did enjoy playing through the game, and seeing what the developers at Revival created. Needless to say, they did a fantastic job crafting a FMV adventure game that was not only interesting and intriguing, but also showed the potential for future games that they may wish to tackle using this style. Fate by Numbers was mentioned by a lot of review sites, gaming media sites and other avenues, because of the style of the game, and because it was a fantastic game. From my experience playing through the game, I can safely say that all the praise this game gets, is definitely worth it, and I do hope that Revival does perhaps continue the series, to see what happens next.

Fate by numbers je slibně vypadající předěl mezi adventurou a filmem, který nepostrádá opravdu hutnou atmosféru. Tu do jisté míry zajišťuje bezchybné audiovizuální zpracování, notně odlišné od klasik žánru. Jako třešnička na dortu je přítomen kvalitní dabing, který vás bude provázet celou hrou.

All things considered, I had a really good time playing FbN. With just a little more extension and better puzzles, this would have been a game that I could have paid for it. Still, FbN is given a well-deserved B+ by this Reviewer.
Softonic (Aug 08, 2007)
The game is designed in the old point-and-click adventure style, which makes it somewhat slow to play. I guess I found it that slow because the intro and some other cutscenes seemed to take forever and all I wanted was to start playing once and for all. Despite that, the mysterious, shadowy environment of the game is certainly attractive and the plot grips you from the beginning. Maybe the game's excellent soundtrack is part of the reason.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Nov 22, 2007)
Fate by Numbers biedt een goede twee uur gameplay aan en is dan ook ideaal om je een avondje onder te dompelen in de leuke Film Noir sfeer die de game te bieden heeft.
Il gioco non dura più di 3-4 ore, ma vale la pana di farlo, siua perché è gratuito, sia perché nella sua brevità ha degli spunti interessanti e una grafica originale. Speriamo in un seguito più polposo.

Despite its rough edges, Fate By Numbers makes up for them by providing an engaging story. Particularly considering that it was developed by university students on a very limited budget, the game is of surprisingly high quality and even brings a few welcome touches. Any adventure fan looking for something that feels new while really hearkening back to old-school FMV games should try it. Perhaps even better than its novelty, though, is the fact that the ending scene of the game all but guarantees there will be further adventures for Ms. Sanger.
