You can hear what everyone is saying, and there is some nice sound work (or lack of) when the characters enter a vacuum, but otherwise the sound quality is surprisingly low and tinny throughout.
For the most part, The Complex is nicely directed with some good sets and physical effects, but when the special effects do crop up, they are bad enough to actually be distracting
The game gives you a good amount of time to make choices, but with each short enough to force quick impulse decisions. Playing through multiple times is made easier by the scene skip option, actively encouraging replay value, but you’ll find yourself spending much more time watching than interacting.
More in common with cinema than gaming, the interactive choices don’t feel necessary to the story being told, and are often poorly telegraphed to the point where it can be frustrating to see the outcome of a decision you’ve made. Fails to meld its two art forms together in an interesting way.
A decent list that will have you playing through each decision and working out how to get the outcomes you need. Would be a painful task if it wasn’t for the scene skip ability, which makes these easy to pop.
