Deadly Premonition, developed by Access Games, is a third-person survival horror action game which puts players in the role of FBI Agent Francis York Morgan. In the process of investigating a murder, players will examine a series of interlocking mysteries in a remote rural town and will encounter an array of complex characters pivotal to the unraveling of the storyline’s mystery. Suspenseful action sequences will force players to make strategic moves, gliding by enemies in the shadows or engaging them with long-range weapons or hand-to-hand melee combat. Amidst a backdrop of soaring mountains and a town filled with eccentric natives, Agent Morgan must solve the mystery of the ‘Red Seed Murders’ and stay alive in a place where supernatural creatures and a folklore killer seek to end his investigation permanently. From the unparalleled atmosphere, music and mysterious storyline to driving vehicles and exploring the entire town, Deadly Premonition will offer players a unique and haunting interactive gaming experience unlike any other.

The story takes a back seat in the game, kinda.... You can pursue the main story and blaze through the game pretty quickly (my fastest time was a little under 3hrs on Hard), but if you diverge and do side-missions, learn about the people, see all there is to see, you can spend a good amount of time in the game (up to about 10-15hrs). I would suggest everyone who plays this to do as many side-missions as possible, they explain a lot about the characters.
Much like a Pug (the dog), they are so ugly that people just love them. The graphics in DP aren't anything to write home about, but that just adds to the game in its own odd way, it has a grainy overlay to it, especially at night. It's obvious that the game was made on a budget (when it was first released is was only $20 NEW, now going for $40+ new here), but if you look at Francis, you can see that they did have talent (don't shave at all and he looks a lot like Justin Timberlake, at least to me).
What I loved, more than anything, was Francis' nonchalant approach to talking with his alter ego (inside his head) out loud, and many of the townsfolk could careless about it, as if it's something normal (or maybe they're all insane). The quirky-ness of all the characters makes you feel like you're watching a episode of 'The Twilight Zone' or something, the strangeness of them is one of the best things of the game.
Combat was average at best, but if you're a fan of survival horror this is nothing new to you. It generates the feeling of helplessness and fear, but is far from being terrible and unusable. You need to have timing, if you go in swing or shooting without any cares, you're gonna fail, simple as that.
I know I touched briefly on the characters in the game, but what I failed to mention is that every character has their own backstory, you just have to befriend them. After certain story events, characters will have missions that they need you to do, upon doing them you learn a bit more about them. Like Mr. Stewart, he is, or his aid Mr.Tillotson, is hilariously awkward, or Thomas, who (*******SPOILER FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT PLAYED THE GAME*******) is a cross-dressing sheriffs assistant (deputy?).
All in all, this has POTENTIAL to be a fun game for those who don't mind cheesy-ness. If you are serious about graphics, gameplay and acting, stay away from it, this is a game that is designed and made to be a 'spoof', a game that doesn't take itself seriously and doesn't expect you to do so either.
Deadly Premonition is not a game for everyone. Even though I have given this game a perfect 5 stars, it is not at all a perfect game. The graphics are very so-so. The gunplay is bad to be honest. Where this game shines though is in it's unique story and interesting world that Swery has created.
If you are a fan of open world games that provide a realistic immersive environment such as Shenmue or the Elder Scrolls games, you might find something you really enjoy in this game.
You are detective Francis York Morgan and you are trying to discover and apprehend a serial killer in the small town of Greenevale. Every main character in this game has their own schedule, they go about their day, go to the convenience store, work, visit friends. There are numerous occasions in this game where you can take the time to travel around town and do some of your own private sleuthing. You can peek into the windows of almost any of the main buildings and houses and you can personally try to piece some things together.
If you astute enough you can actually get a really good idea of who the killer is. I can't tell you how much fun I had driving around town, getting to know the quirky characters, and getting to know the best character of them all, Francis York Morgan himself.
The story of this game is funny, tragic, and suspenseful all at once. The ending is one of the more touching game endings I have seen. As someone who has been gaming for over 20 years, I can say that this is one of the most fulfilling gaming experiences of my life and this title is firmly established into my personal gaming hall of fame.
IF you absolutely cannot handle some poor controls, then this game just wont work for you. However, if you can look past some very apparent flaws, and give this game a chance, I think that you will find that you haven't played anything like it before and you will be bit saddened that you may never play anything like it again.
The game takes place in Greevale, a fictional American town that seems a lot like a New England setting due to all the rain and ocean-views you encounter. You play Francis York Morgan, an FBI agent assigned to the case of the brutal murder of Anna Graham. York will get old really fast. Every new person he meets, he'll flash the badge and say the same phrase: "Agent Francis York Morgan. But please, call me York. It's what everyone calls me." After a while, you beg him not to flash the badge and catchphrase, but his quirks are overlooked by the massive storyline.
Although it has the graphics of an early "Silent Hill" game, it's worth the creepy smiles and 3-gesture habits of the characters. The town is filled with about 30-40 inhabitants that you meet throughout the game, and each one of them is unique and sometimes hilarious to interact with. The town's history unfolds the more you play the game and it has a legitimate "under-the-covers" ghost story to it. It almost makes you want to visit Greenvale on Google-Earth it's so real.
The creatures you encounter become creepier the more you encounter them and the Raincoat Killer is enough to make you jump in your seat.
It's not just a horror-thriller game, like "Alan Wake" or the disappointing "Dead Island." It's like reading an interactive mystery. You just can't get enough and you find yourself spending your free time trying to put together pieces of the puzzle.
A keeper game and amazing. Worth the price!
