Deadly Premonition is honestly one of the better games i have played this year. I went into this game with a very very low expectation, and was quickly shocked and corrected when i became submerged in detail and storyline. I thought I was just going to be killing a few days while waiting on another game to arrive... i soon lost track of time and didn't care about any other game; all the elements that it brings to the table really made for a great experience. It reminded me of RE4 with the 3rd person walking, aiming, and weapon handling, GTA with the wide open map area to explore, and Indigo Prophecy with a very rich successful storyline that will have you at an edge every step of the way. Im a huge fan of B-side horror flicks and was very impressed with how they implemented the feel of that into the game with both the soundtrack and atmosphere.
It does have it's flaws though, if you are looking for cutting edge graphics and controls you will not find it here. This game is at best a few years back graphically. I would advise any teenager to research 80's movies b4 playing for the simple fact of how often they're referenced and played off of. Other than that, great game! It will be a cult classic for sure!! FTW

Deadly premonition starts off in a strange Alice in Wonderland-esc room. The game is very strange all together. If you don't like time consuming games, don't was your time. The game itself takes forever to play through. The profiling aspect of the game is intriuging, but doesn't make enough sense. The main character makes references to movies all throughout the game so the player feels like they can relate. If you have a short attention span or don't have patience, this game isn't for you.

To begin it is kind of a knock off of the early Silent Hill with the drivable car parts, Sorry for that Silent Hill is one of the greatest games I've played. To picture or graphics are sub below par. It is like sometimes it was like white noise with color. Don't know what white noise is look it up. The music was standard but not the best it could have been, it played on the darkness and ghosts. You could always tell when something bad was about to happen because it would change to a differnt type of music. The controls were above average, until you drive a car the handling for the car is morbidly awful. Not to mention the fact you have damage and gas meters. Lets not forget the Achievements for 360 are complete the game on differant modes, and you get rest through the story.
