Deadly Premonition (Xbox 360)

 

Considering its feeble production values, ancient controls, and all-round nuttiness, it would be tempting to dismiss Deadly Premonition as merely "so bad it's good," as if this creepy and crazy horror adventure were entertaining because it's so...

Deadly Premonition is an open world action-adventure with a distinctly Japanese bent. Taking control of FBI Agent Francis York Morgan, call him York, you have been sent to the rural town of Greenvale to investigate a murder. As you might imagine...

Engrossing Story ; Hilarious dialogue ; Interesting characters ; Only twenty bucks

Puzzles can be frustrating ; Sub-par graphics ; Very slow moving

Ignition Entertainment, the same guys that brought you Murumasa: The Demon Blade on Wii and Blue Dragon Plus on DS, recently released Deadly Premonition for the 360. The game was released well under everyone’s radar, seeing as this spring has brought...

Deadly Premonition Review [PS3/Xbox 360]

 

This review originally appeared a while back, when we reviewed Deadly Premonition on import. It's out today in the UK, hence it being bumped to the top of the reviews pile. Please note that while we reviewed Deadly Premonition on the PS3, only the Xbox...

Fantastic story and setting ; A truly memorable hero ; Genuinely disturbing horror ; Plenty to do

Horribly dated visuals ; Driving cars is dreadful ; Several poor design decisions ; Too strange for some

Simultaneously one of the best and the worst games released this year, Deadly Premonition is a truly distinctive survival horror title strongly recommended for those willing to overlook its numerous flaws.

Listen to the backwards talking girl with the playing card, you want... no, you need... to play Deadly Premonition.

Deadly Premonition is a ambitious low budget game that can almost be considered the equivalent of a b-movie. It's weird and charming, cumbersome and frustrating, amusing and somber, and it switches these moods around often. With an intriguing murder...

It looks ancient and controls poorly, but this entertaining and unpredictable horror adventure delivers more shocks than schlock.

Bizarre and entertaining story keeps you guessing ; Memorable cast of characters will get under your skin ; Lots of variety leads to pleasant unpredictability ; Many hours of gameplay for only $20

Poor visuals ; Terrible sound effects ; Useless map ; Awkward controls

Quick -- if you had $20 to spend on something gaming related right now, what's your best purchase? If you answered Deadly Premonition for the Xbox 360, you'd be absolutely right. Unless you're obsessive about having next gen graphics or can't deal with...

You know, I half expected that at any moment, something in Deadly Premonition would just break or suddenly reveal "oh, this is why it's a $20 game!" -- but no, that never happened. Sure it's graphics are less than par, but nevermind that. What's...

REVIEW: Okay, we've officially seen it all

Holy crap! It's $20 for 25-plus hours of gameplay?!; Charming weirdness with a few scares thrown in

Production values lacking; pacing drags in spots

Think the writer of this game is a Twin Peaks fan? Gee, ya think?

Deadly Premonition Review

 

Hilariously gruesome and strangely addictive

20 Price point, huge amount of content

Horrid driving controls, dated graphics

If other games had the problems found in Deadly Premonition, they would be laughed off the 360 and into obscurity, but this game just has that staying power, that "je ne sais quoi" that makes you want to keep playing, to keep going forward, to keep...

Deadly Premonition Review

 

Survival horror games make for some of the most compelling interactive experiences out there but strangely, they're not made as often as they could be. Japanese developer Access Games' survival horror/adventure game Deadly Premonition came out recently...

Deadly Premonition, while lacking in the aesthetic aspect, is a surprisingly entertaining game. Its $19.99 price point may make gamers overlook it, assuming it’s either really short or total crap but neither is the truth. With four long Episodes (made...
