From the Manufacturer
Taking the popular Japanese Horror theme to a whole new terrifying level, Fatal Frame III: The Tormented is a complete Japanese Horror interactive experience as the player takes on the role of Rei, a cursed young woman whose overwhelming guilt and tormented dreams lead her into a formidable world where the lines between reality and nightmares are blurred and the only way out is to solve the mystery of the tattoo. What the player will see in Reis dreams is only the beginning of the nightmare, making Fatal Frame III: The Tormented the most terrifying virtual experience to date.
- Multi-playable characters: using strategy and skill, the player must choose between three different characters with unique special abilities in order to complete each terrifying mission.
- Two haunting worlds: The game takes place in two haunting worlds--the nightmare and the real life. As the player moves deeper into the game, the line between the two worlds becomes blurred, creating fear and uneasiness in the player.
- In-depth storyline: the story of Rei's torment will consume the player as they move deeper and deeper into the mind-bending world of Fatal Frame III: The Tormented.
- Camera obscura: The player will use the camera obscura not only as a weapon but as a guide by taking pictures of the ghostly inhabitants and creepy objects within the "House of Sleep" in order to solve the mystery of the tattoo and rid of the curse.
- Evolved ghosts: Most terrifying ghosts to date as hideous facial expressions and creepy eye movements have been refined. Ghosts will stare at the player while morphing into a scarier ghost, increasing fear in the player as they confront the apparition.
- New characters: a new female heroine, Rei Kurosawa, and a young journalist, Kei Amakura, bring new special abilities and their own stories to Fatal Frame III: The Tormented.

The Fatal Frame series are my favorite video games, though Fatal Frame 2 is the one I like best.
Fatal Frame 3 set itself apart from the first two in several ways. One, I'm glad to say that we did fight some different ghosts. Fatal Frame creators are really big into recycling. I always get the idea that there were things they had wanted to do with the earlier games, but for some reason they couldn't. When they make a new game, they often use so many things from prior games you constantly feel deja vu. For instance, Broken Neck Woman was in both FF1 and FF2. When I encountered her in the second game I played, I was like, "Didn't I fight you in that other game? Dang, you are an unfortunate broad!"
However, you will see some familiar scenery and faces in this game that do come from prior games. However, this is because Fatal Frame 3 does tie into earlier storylines. Is it a bonus to play the other games first? Well, there is admittedly a certain nostalgia, but on the other hand...you will know the old storylines. I don't know if the game explains the old storylines enough to satisfy newbies, but I did find myself getting rather bored playing Kei--who was exploring the places from Fatal Frame 2. Kei is the uncle of Fatal Frame 2's heroine Mio. Mio has fallen victim to a strange illness, and Kei is investigating it in hopes of saving her.
You will also see the heroine from Fatal Frame 1, Miku--who is an assistant to Fatal Frame 3's heroine Rei. Rei, Miku, and Mio are all suffering from the same condition, brought on by the same thing. You will not be playing Mio this time. It is also important for vets of this game series to know that you have to accept the endings of Fatal Frame 1 & 2 where Mafuyu and Mayu disappear, leaving their sibling as the sole survivor. You will also see scenes from Fatal Frame 1 when playing Miku. However, Fatal Frame 3 has its own locations and ghosts, as well as its own storyline.
Another thing that sets FF3 apart is that you will be playing three different characters, though Rei is the main character. You will also play Miku and Kei. Of course, in the earlier games, there were brief times you played another character...but it wasn't like this.
Fatal Frame 3 was like playing in a Japanese movie. This was rather interesting, though sometimes there were too many cutscenes. Unlike other games where you are stuck in a location, in Fatal Frame 3 you will always end every level back in the safety of Rei's room. There is a house to explore and a few creepy surprises. However, though I did enjoy this twist, I'm not sure if it didn't interfere with the scariness factor. I did not find this game scary, though I enjoyed it for its own merits. It did not leave me looking over my shoulder or blankets like the other two games did. The thing was, when you were stuck in a location with no reprieve, the tension built up...which helped you get scared out of your wits. Since you know you will end the level in the safety of Rei's room, the tension disperses.
There were not many random attacks, and the few that you did have--most you could run away from. The storyline takes a long time to develop. Actually, until you reach the very end, you don't understand why everything went to hell. I did appreciate the respawning film, purifying light, and herbal medicine. I wound up having more than I needed of film and medicine. I didn't even run out of purifying light that often (this is needed towards the end of the game. If you don't have it, you can still play--but your screen turns a static black and white, which makes things hard to see, and also makes you more likely to be attacked. This is also new feature. In the other games, this only happened during cutscenes.). Ghosts varied from being easy to capture to being nearly impossible. The boss fight was difficult (perhaps the hardest compared to the other games), but it wasn't impossible. I also appreciated that save points were plentiful and in very practical places (which was a pet peeve in the other games). I appreciated the one right before the boss fight. Save points were clearly marked on the map, and the map itself was easy to read. This is a very big place--since it connects three locations--so I found it difficult to memorize the layout. I was referring to the map constantly.
One thing I did find annoying was the long pause before every door. There was a brief pause in other games, but it was longer in this game.
The first ending was romantic...kind of a "chick movie" ending, I thought. That wasn't quite my thing. Though I'm a chick as far as hardware is concerned, the software programmed into me doesn't make me like these sappy, romantic endings. However, it didn't detract from the game.
To sum it up, this game did not overthrow Fatal Frame 2 as my favorite, but I found it worth adding to my collection.
Now this game is scary. So scary that at night I have to get my dog Coonther to come cuddle up with me cause I don't want that women who fell from the stairs to come and take me in my sleep. No but furreals friends though, this game is the scariest out of the franchise even though I still haven't played part 4 and I probably won't until I mod my Wii, but I really liked this one. I wish my woman had the same tattoo as the main character...damn that would drive me bonkers. Okay anyways. Yeah, this is probably one of the coolest and scariest games for PS2. IF you like japan and ghosts and female protagonists pick this bad boy up!
loved it! it's perfect for playing alone or with some friends, it's good for some great scares.
-creepy sound effects, ghosts, music. you're only weapon is...A CAMERA! (no guns, sorry) :P
however, I ask that you might want to play the 1st and 2nd games FIRST, before playing this.
only because the main characters' stories are followed up in this sequel, just a warning. but, even if you don't this game
it's pretty self-explanatory.
*if you're a fan of survival horror games, Japanese culture (ghosts, etc), a BIG fan of Fatal Frame-this IS the game for you!
(you might as well just play the whole series, it's THAT good) <3 <3
*The Only Downside: after you've beaten this game once, it can feel pretty repetitive sometimes-and can get boring.
I mean, you switch back and forth between the dream world and reality-it can get tiresome, but maybe it won't be boring for you. whenever I'm in the mood, I love playing this game.
I DARE YOU TO PLAY THESE GAMES AT NIGHT!!!!! >:3
it's just sad that Tecmo hasn't gotten it's act together and released the 4th game in the US. TT_TT
