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 Rei’s 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.
  • Returning characters: Miku from the original Fatal Frame is back and playable in Fatal Frame III: The Tormented, using her strong spiritual powers to help Rei solve the mystery of the "House of Sleep", as her haunting personal story from Fatal Frame continues...
  • Disturbing sounds and visuals: eerie sounds, unexpected movements, and psychologically disturbing visuals all add up to the most terrifying Japanese Horror interactive experience to date.

Tecmo's survival horror series Fatal Frame continues to outdo its competition (resident evil, Silent hill)in the spook factor with its mix of Japanese lore, the universal fright of ghosts and its bizarre sacrificial rituals. The latest entry in the series deals with Rei Kurosawa, a young photographer who has recently lost her fiance in a car wreck. While taking pictures of a rumored haunted house she snaps a photo in which her dead lover appears. This and incident sets in motion the events for Fatal Frame 3: The tormented.

For fans of the series very little has changed in terms of actual gameplay but there have been a few major changes in the game setup. The biggest difference that gameplay is split into two worlds, a dream world and the real world. The dream world is of course the nightmarish aged decaying world of "the house of sleep" while the real world is modern Japan where you investigate pieces of the dream world and learn info on what is happening in your dreams.

The second biggest change is the addition of two playable characters, Miku (from Fatal Frame 1) and Kei (uncle to the two girls in Fatal Frame 2). By using 2 characters connected two the first 2 installments, Fatal Frame 3 attempts to explain the events of the malice in all three games.

Tecmo once again succeeds in realising a brilliant, vivid world. The game's use of sound and background noise truly ups the scare factor. While walking empty corridors you can hear voices echo in the background, perfectly beating bells will ring faster to make you think danger is imminent only to have nothing happen while in other silent spots ghosts appear and attack out of nowhere.

Well, well, well, what do we have here! Another "Fatal Frame" game to whet our masochistic appetites! I've played a lot of survival horror games in my day, but never once have any of those games moved me to turn the lights on when I go to bed each night. This is where "Fatal Frame"'s uniqueness is truly apparent. This is where the true horror is. Don't get me wrong, "Resident Evil" and "Silent Hill" fans, zombies and monsters are good, also. I have played those games as well and I liked them. Corporeal beings with their rotting mouths and clouded eyes are definitely scary, but they're still, well... of a material persuasion. Admit it; it's a comfort to be able to blast a shotgun shell through their foreheads or drive a chain saw through them should you become cornered. You still have that psychological safety net beneath you.

Where "Fatal Frame" splinters away from the survival horror tradition is in its admittedly slow-paced terror, that sinks into your skin and chills your bones with its complex stories. Even when you defeat a ghost, you can't be sure that they're not going to come back for more (they don't have physical bodies that you can trash once and be done with it, after all). This third--and presumably last--installment to the games is no different, though it may be a bit more complicated and hard to figure out than its predecessors. Regardless, let me assure you, it will not disappoint.

New features to the game include the "nightmare world" and the "real world". You see, in the previous two games, the setting took place entirely in old, crumbling Japanese style mansions (or villages, as it were) where some supremely twisted ceremony took place and, uh... didn't go quite as planned.

"Fatal Frame III - The Tormented" is probably the last FF game we'll see on PS2, and I'm more than happy to report that the series is ending - hopefully temporarily - with a great big bang.

You control Rei, a young woman whose guilt over the death of her fiancee Yuu in a car accident is having a huge negative effect on her life. At work one day with her assistant Miku, photographing an allegedly 'haunted' house, Rei sees Yuu and gives chase, only to end up in some kind of nightmarish world of vengeful spirits. Returning home, a blue tattoo invisible to all but her starts to spread across her body, to match the one she saw on a spirit in her waking dream.

And from there on in, "Fatal Frame III - The Tormented" becomes a symphony of gameplay and scares. This is Survival Horror in its purest form - a gripping storyline, incredibly strong atmosphere (far more so than the two excellent prequels) and a big dose of genuine fear all come together to make this the most rewarding game in the FF series to date.


Simply amazing. The cut-scenes are far more detailed and plentiful than before, with the Manga characters taking on a more believable depth of realism. The enemies are more detailed and more defined now than ever and, in terms of design, are quite terrifying - the Woman Brushing and Shrine Carpenter ghosts are two of the scariest Survival Horror enemies ever! The backdrops are gorgeous - richly detailed and very convoluted so as to lend more of a sense of Nightmare to the dream worlds that Rei has to traverse. The cinematic aspect of the game is perhaps the most important one - the closest comparison I can make is like a playable, immersive version of the original 'Dark Water' movie.
