Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly starts off simply. Two young twin girls, Mio and Mayu, are talking to each other in the sun. We see flashbacks of a horrible accident that Mio has about the past. Supposedly her sister, Mayu, was chasing after her and fell down a hill, injuring her knee. Mio starts to apologize to Mayu, when all of a sudden she notices Mayu is nowhere in sight. She looks for her and sees she's wandering off into the woods. Mio calls after her, but she doesn't stop, or answer. Mayu keeps walking, and suddenly it's pitchblack. Mio finally catches up to Mayu and they come to a small village. A village that they can't leave. Ever.
Just joking. Seriously though, this game is super creepy. I can't play it by myself, I find my heart racing and don't want to open another door. Who knows, maybe I'm lame, but ghosts creep me out.
If you're not familiar with the gameplay, your weapon is a "Camera Obscura," which shows things that normally can't be seen with the human eye. This means ghosts and any other kind of unnatural apparition. You then take pictures of these ghosts and it acts as an "exorciser." The storyline is great and full of surprises. The graphics are beautiful and the lighting is amazing. Definitely pick up this game if you love horror movies or survival horror games.
Many will disagree with me when I say that it's scarier than SILENT HILL. I guess I've always been more spooked by ghosts (you know, things I can imagine running into) instead of abstract cone-headed creatures (although the monsters in SH4 were a lot less abstract, but I digress).
I don't think FATAL FRAME 2 has anything to do with the earlier game as far as plot goes. The only connection is the Camera Obscura. Mio and Mayu are twins that are caught up in an ancient ritual of twin sacrifice that had previously wiped out the village. As you play the game, Mayu (you control Mio) gets possessed by a former spirit (Sae) who tries to lead her towards the upcoming ritual that must be made to restore the village. The story unfolds to explain what really happened to the village.
The plot was great. The only downside is that it uses the same cliche of "demonic ritual", which is so common in games these days (e.g. SIREN, SILENT HILL, FATAL FRAME, etc.) But the game tells a story that actually makes a lot more sense to me than many of the SILENT HILL or SIREN games.
The graphics are good, too. Like with the first one, it gets spookier as you advance. Unexpected things start to happen, and there were moments that sent chills down my back and I had to turn the game off (I was playing alone, in the dark, at night).
I would highly recommend this game. It's really entertaining and really scary.
That is all.
No, seriously, folks, nothing at all could have prepared me for the beauty and artistry and downright good old-fashioned terror that I experienced while playing 'Fatal Frame 2'. It's a magnificent, magnificent game and really deserving of prize place on your games top shelf.
Let's get this straight before we discuss anything else. Nobody, and I mean nobody, does Horror like the Japanese. Ringu. Dark Water. Silent Hill. All Night Long. Forbidden Siren. Sweet Home. The list goes on and on until you're left in your own sitting room, jumping at shadows, shuddering as the hairs move on the back of your neck, and stifling screams at the sound of those tiny finger-cymbals clashing. Theirs is a real mastery of the Genre, and the Americans and Europeans can only pray that some day, our own efforts measure up to scratch - compare "The Blair Witch project" to "Ringu", or the "Alone in the Dark" series of games to "Silent Hill", and I promise you, we'll all be found wanting.
Anyway, getting back to the review at hand. You play the part of Mio, a para-psychic girl who, along with her deeply psychic sister Mayu, get lost and trapped in All God's Village, a deserted town in the middle of a forest, some days before the sinister 'Crimson Butterfly Ritual' is to take place. Mayu, intermittently under the control of the spirits that haunt All God's, disappears, and Mio must find her and stop the mysterious 'Sacrifice' before it's too late.
