This game will both scare the heck out of you, and dazzle you. The characters are absolutely pretty [and hot too!], and the scenery, though eery, is well done. The game play, though it doesn't really alter throughout the entire game, does add to the terror factor because you can't help but feel a little helpless with just a camera! The occasional panty shot always spiced it up as well.

One of the best, and most overlooked, franchises

When you think of horror, the first thing that comes to mind should be scared teenagers running for their lives not a heavily armed government agent laying waste to the undead with a chain gun. While screaming is in short supply, Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly contains its fair share of running for your life, even if you aren't a teenager.

You are Mio, a girl who is desperately trying to find her twin sister, Mayu, who just can't seem to stop getting lost in a haunted village that shouldn't exist. The core component of the gameplay, and aiding you in your search, is a mystical camera known as the Camera Obscura. With this implement, you are able to exorcise ghosts from the physical realm, and thus the story begins, but I won't spoil that for you. Alright, just a little morsel. The village is host to a deadly ritual that involves twins. That's all you get, though. Where's the fun in playing if you already know the ending?

The only major flaw that can be found in the game is in the character's movement. Maybe the miniskirt and leggings are too tight for her because, even when running, she moves quite slow. This, of course, is only a minor grievance and really the only problem with the game that is even worth mentioning. So, if you can get past a slow-moving character, you enjoy horror of any medium, or just want the nerd cred for knowing about this game, then bump down whatever Resident Evil game is at the top your Game Q and get ready to cosplay as a scared Japanese chick.
