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.

Hands down, this is one of my favorite games of all time. With that being said, it's definitely not for everyone. I'll start with the bad news first.
The graphics are horrible. I played it on the 360 and the graphics felt closer to what you'd see on a PS2. The gameplay isn't horribly fun, and the controls can get downright frustrating. If you can get past those two issues, you're really in for a treat.
The story in this game is amazing. I love games with a great story, and this is one of the best. It's similar to Twin Peaks or Alan Wake and has a great pacific northwest vibe. Once I started playing this game, I couldn't stop. I grew attached to the characters and just like a great book, couldn't wait to figure out what happens next.
-Unique and quirky game
-Controls can be frustrating
This game is very divisive. Most people either love it or hate it. I absolutely love it.
Deadly Premonition is renowned.
For good reason.
The gameplay mechanics are a little cumbersome, maybe a little dated.
If you're a fan of story - THIS IS WHERE IT'S AT
For fans of Twin Peaks or True Detective or the OA...this is the gaming experience you've been waiting for. Immersive. Relentless. You find yourself driven as an FBI agent stranded in a strange place connected to another strange place. So much to explore. So much to learn. If story-driven action is what you're looking for, this one is for you. It envelopes you. It makes the Silent Hill look feel like a breath of spring.
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.
The story is the key focus here, its starts out as a murder mystery and only gets crazier from there.
It has themes of horror but they are hardly explained and are just there for you experience a RE4 style gameplay. THIS IS NOT A GOOD HORROR GAME don't expect survival horror there are too many weapons and an abundance of ammo to be a horror game. The story and character is what you'll most enjoy.
Its an open world game too, the world is big enough to explore but you'll find nothing much to do except drive and walk on foot. Its not all bad as there are locations where you can play mini games.
Graphics are a mixed bag, The character models are detailed but they lack good animation. Facial animation is very lacking. The environment lack the same detail and you'll see pop ins and jaggies throughout the open world.
Voice acting is okay it won't win any awards for good voice acting. Sometimes the characters animation dont match with what the characters are saying and all around they are passable and the actors do their jobs well enough to convey.
So why is this game worth your time? Like I said earlier the game is bizarre, many will raise eye brows as to some of the characters and how they act. Its a quirky game that embraces its quirkiness. The story at first seems like a plot of a TV murder mystery but it gets more weirder and interesting that by the time you think you figured it out something else happens that you'll want to continue playing.
Its an odd game that will be admired for its quirkiness and appreciated for mixing different gameplay. Its a budget title so its definitely worth it since its going cheaper now then before.
