Fatal Frame


For me, it all started with 7th Guest for the PC, I was indescribably intrigued by this game at the time. The ability to journey through a beautifully rendered, haunted mansion (albeit prerendered, hey it was 1993 what do you expect?) via a...

Innovative gameplay mechanics, impressive visuals, and a progressive, intricate storyline set Fatal Frame on a higher level then your run-of-the-mill survival-horror game. Fatal Frame does suffer from some of the common pitfalls of games like Resident...

Fatal Frame


Tecmo tries their hands on the survival horror genre with Fatal Frame, but can they compete with the chills of Silent Hill? Well for starters I have read all of...

Fatal Frame review for the PS2


Death by exposure.

Excellent production values; Camera use keeps player paranoid; Japanese characters actually look Japanese

Sixth Sense' too helpful; Apparent visual 'hits' will sometimes not yield points

If you're one of those gamers with a predilection for The Creeps - you know who you are - Fatal Frame is simply a must-see. Easily-freaked and superstitious types may not make it all the way through, as was the case for many a Silent Hill player. No...

Fatal Frame


I would like to introduce the new (Stephen) King of eerie survival horror titles. I am not just saying that because it is a good turn of phrase (But, I must admit, that was pretty damn witty). Fatal Frame isn't Resident Evil; the John Romero of...

Survival horror with a camera? Sure, it sounds like this makes as much sense as a first person shooter that arms you with a rubber band but Tecmo has managed to bring it together and make it all the more terrifying BECAUSE you are only armed with a...

Fatal Frame - ps2


Like most survival horror veterans, I've seen more than my fair share of horror movies, and the first two or three years worth of horror games, so I was feeling pretty desensitized to the whole idea. I was not one to be shaken. I would laugh at this...

Fatal Frame


As a game based on a bona fide ghost story based on bona fide paranormal phenomena right there in Tokyo, Fatal Frame sure does a remarkable job of scaring the bona fide crap out of players...

Though touted as a game "based on a true story,"

Fatal Frame


Fatal Frame is a very, very disturbing game. Set in a haunted mansion (I know, you're having Resident Evil flashbacks, bear with me), a young girl searches for her missing brother, who consequently disappeared searching for a missing author. I have to...

The control scheme is simple. No multi function buttons to worry about, and the game makes nice use of both analog sticks. Though Miku controls like a ... well a reluctant scared girl traversing a spooky mansion (in other words sluggish and slow), its...

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly


Fatal Frame, despite a wacky premise--young Japanese girl ghosthunting with an ancient camera--came out of nowhere, and turned out to be one of the single best horror games of all time.

My complaints are probably unique to me, however, as a survival-horror expert and adventure-game fanatic. I still have to give Fatal Frame 2 a lot of credit; it may be a lot easier than the original, but in almost every other way--graphics, sound,...

Fatal Frame


Supposedly based on a true story, Fatal Frame is the story of Miku, a young girl in search for her brother who has turned up missing during a visit to the haunted Himura Mansion. Once in the mansion, she finds the place infested with disturbed spirits...

Excellent graphics; Lighting and effects are well done; Sound effects and music add to the ambiance

Collision detection; Limited camera angles; Large save file

Fatal Frame has got creepy nailed down. You'll find yourself going "Man, I wish I hadn't seen that" after a ghost passes by or shows up in front of you. If you're a fan of ghost stories, you will love this game. It's scary and the story grows deeper...

Fatal Frame


"Please father," pleaded my three sons in unison, "if you buy us Dead or Alive 3 for our X-Box then we shall never again misbehave." "Nah," spake I from my fatherly throne, "it will be a dark day in Utopia before another Tecmo game crosses our threshold."
