To the point then:
NEW IMPROVEMENTS NOTICED: Compared to 360 version I owned:
-Improved, more precise on foot and in vehicle controls.
-Improved Graphics for trees, houses, cars, interiors, exteriors, roads, animals, night and day time, lakes, town, and many minor details.
-York's clothing has physics. His tie will flop as he moves.
-Farther Draw Distance with more clarity, less fogging.
-Expandable mini map while in-game. Very helpful.
-Updated HUD graphics.
-Autosave and standard single slot save (new?)
-Story Additions, new scenes, dialog, etc.
-Less muddiness while outside. Still pixelated though. Lots of visual noise. Frame rate still slows down on occasion.
-2D and 3D choice. 2D has better resolution. 3D is pixelated more.
Join Francis York on his nightmarish journey into the forest town of Greenvale, as he tries to piece the mysterious clues together that can help him find and stop the unexplained Red Seed deaths taking place. Plenty of supernatural demons and surreal moments, many of which are heavily inspired by Twin Peaks.
Left analog rotates York 360 degrees, with a light pressure making him walk slowly, more pressure up to a normal walk. To run, hold L2. Right Analog controls the camera, also 360 and independent of the character's controls, so if you want, you can have York walk towards the camera while looking behind him.
L1 draws your weapon, up down digital pad picks it. Really nicely done. Firing a gun is still stationary and a bit clusmy.
While in a vehicle, you can choose an exterior view, or an interior dashboard view of the car.Read more ›
Fast-forward three years, and the video game industry is in turmoil. Corporate corruption, homogenized sequels, and AAA titles that simply attempt to outdo each other as opposed to being genuinely good games... everything is messed-up, and it seems developers have forgotten what it means to make interactive entertainment. Not Access Games, though, because their massive facelift of their modern cult classic reminds us that there are still developers that give a darn. Somehow managing to improve an already perfect game, "Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut" is what we, the gaming community, need. And I can't think of finer praise to heap on a something.
Before delving into this version specifically, it's important to introduce new players to the events of the game. FBI Agent Francis York Morgan (call him York, though, everybody else does) is sent to the sleepy town of Greenvale to investigate the bizarre murder of a local girl. The method in which she was killed is similar to other cases he's investigated, so he quickly takes over the case. However, things get weirder from there.Read more ›
The enjoyment found in this game is nothing like the feeling you may get while ironically watching a bad movie, should you be into that. No, this game's story is actually very good, and one that wears its huge Twin Peaks influence on its sleeve. And on top of that it features one of the greatest main characters in any game, ever.
In many ways The Director's Cut is the superior version, despite some framerate issues that I'm happy to report don't hurt the game too much (the only really bad sections occur early on). Thanks to the refined controls and difficulty, combat is far less tedious than before, which makes progressing through the game a lot more satisfying. The enhanced mini-map also gives extra incentive to explore the town and complete sidequests in between missions.
Though Deadly Premonition still contains a fair amount of jank, it only adds to the wealth of charm within. The end result is a ridiculously original masterpiece that hearkens back to an era where the gaming landscape had more room for wildly imaginative budget games, a far cry from the abundance of focus tested blockbusters that are prevalent today.
