Top Customer Reviews
Update: I just beat the game on normal. It was really fantastic. I have heard that you get a different ending if you play the game on Hard so that is what I will be doing next. I will definitely not mind playing this game a second time. It was a fantastic experience but this time I think I'm going to play it with the lights on ;).
But then I bought the game. Myself and my roommate sat down to play it, looking more to laugh at ghosts than to be scared out of our wits. Less than an hour into the game, we were both shaking from being startled so many times. From that point on, every time we played at least one of us would be yelling in surprise and fear at points.
"Fatal Frame II" lives up to the hype. Even for horror game veterans, this is a favorite. Maybe it's because your only weapon is a camera rather than a gun. Maybe it's the ghosts. Maybe the music or the graphics. Or it's a combination of all of the above. Whatever it is, it works. Even knowing EXACTLY what will happen doesn't dull the fear. Nightmares are a common occurrence when playing this.
The game isn't continually scary, really. There are a lot of moments that will make you jump, especially with the perfectly-timed music stings from the soundtrack. But the story is intriguing and will lead the player through places they never wanted to enter.
The story focuses on Mio and her twin sister Mayu. They enter a (if you'll pardon the term) ghost town where Mayu is led away from Mio by crimson butterflies. Your job, as Mio, is to find Mayu and lead her to safety, despite those pesky butterflies. Now that is just the most basic plot. The story itself is full of twists, turns, and revelations.
Unfortunately, one complaint I can make pertains to Mio and Mayu, the main characters. Neither are particularly likable and Mayu especially will have you yelling at the screen in frustration. But then, what horror film won't have you yelling at the main characters, "Don't go in there! The killer's in there!"
Game play is fairly standard--one button to aim the camera, another to shoot, etc. Most time is spent wandering the town in search of the next clue. It sounds repetitive, and at times can be. But with ghosts waiting to surprise you around every corner, you find yourself thankful for the dull moments. But be prepared to backtrack quite a bit, though you'll find ghosts scattered around to make things interesting.
Fighting ghosts is basic. The game explains how to use the camera well, though the menu can be confusing at times. The enemies you encounter, though, are a little mismatched. In the middle of the game, you'll find ghosts that are too easy for you. But then, one corridor later, and you'll have a ghost that's near impossible. Luckily, by the end, the designers balanced it out a little more. The same ghosts you've been fighting since the beginning have gotten their power-ups and are more of a threat.
Of the three games released thus far worldwide, this is certainly the scariest. 7 years old now, and this game is a fan-favorite in the genre. I daresay it's likely to remain as one for years to come.
