Fade to Silence‘s strengths definitely outweigh its weaknesses, though. Its unique setting makes you want to go out and discover its secrets. Its camp building elements reward you for seeking out other survivors and building bonds with them. And the survival aspects give the game depth and added challenge. It isn’t just a bog-standard adventure game with a frosty backdrop; in Fade to Silence, the weather is your biggest foe. Whether you’re a fan of action-adventure or survival games, Fade to Silence is well worth checking out.
Fade to Silence offers quite an accessible survival adventure that knows exactly when to push your buttons. The game’s seemingly interesting world is full of possibilities and dangers of equal measure, ensuring that there’s always some event to take on throughout. The drawback, however, is that of its lack of polish and mechanical depth, together with its awkward combat. Shame really, with more time in the oven, this could have been a big hit.
The thing is though, Fade to Silence isn't a bad game, it just feels unfinished, and perhaps it should have kept its Early Access tags for a little while longer. The combat system falls flat, the voice acting (apart from the voice in your head) is horrible, and the only thing that we enjoyed fully was the survival and exploration elements. If the developers had been allowed the time to polish the game a bit more, it could have been so much better than it currently is at launch.
