Reviews:

Electronic Entertainment, November 1995

"Fade To Black features a brand new engine that creates thoroughly convincing and utterly fascinating 3-D worlds. The game consists of six massive levels, each with multiple sublevels. Extremely high-quality cinematic cut scenes interspersed between - and throughout - each level propel the game's evolving plot and pull you deeper into Conrad's world. You'll pick up bits of information along the way that will gradually unveil the Morphs' sinister plans."

"Graphically, Fade To Black is stunning. Game environments are all rendered in Super VGA and include awesome visual effects such as "living" walls and running water. The vast and gorgeous landscape views aboard the orbital station in Level 4 are breathtaking."

CD-ROM Today, January 1996

"In addition to having more action than Flashback, Fade to Black also has more strategy elements. Conrad has to scrounge up ammunition, bombs, and first-aid kits in order to successfully complete his missions."

"The voice acting and rendered cut-scenes in this title are top notch. Fade to Black is an action/adventure game with plenty of leaping, ducking, and shooting to satisfy all but the most hardened fighter. With your help, Conrad will soon learn the secret of the Morphs and put an end to their predations once and for all."

Computer Gaming World, December 1995

"Fade To Black, Delphine Software's sequel to their popular Flashback, is one strange duck. At first you'll applaud the game's daring and experimental interface - at least until you've been wrestled into submission by its confusing, blind insensate fury. Likewise, you'll initially appreciate the presence of a robust storyline - at least until it tails off into insignificance. One thing does remain consistent, however: the gameplay, which straddles the line between action and adventure with enough puzzles to drop bloodthirsty arcade-fans in their tracks and enough twitch-reflex combat to stymie more cerebral gamers. I remember thinking initially: 'Is this a lousy game with some really nice parts, or a great game with a few giant flaws?' Twenty hours later, I still can't make up my mind."
