If want something new, something different, and something SCARY! Then I recomend this game completely. I have played and beat all of the three Fatal Frame games, and recomend them to anyone who loves a good scare. But thats not all the game is about, it also has some very intuitive and fun gameplay. You use a camera called the Camera Obscura to snap photos of the ghosts when they try to attack you. This may sound silly and stupid, but trust me when your on the final boss levels and ghosts can kill you almost instantly and have insane teleport or are very fast ist fun, hard, and addicting. If your not scared very much its still very fun, if you do want a scare play this at NIGHT like i did with all of the lights turned out and you will have a blast.

The first Fatal Frame is still my favorite of the series. It’s sad that the studio announced back in 2005 that the series would be discontinued. I’m a fan of the series & believe Fatal Frame does rival other thrilling, bone-chilling titles such as Silent Hill, Parasite Eve 1 & 2, Resident Evil (Director’s Cut my cup of tea.) I’d have to say, that this 2nd installment is my all around runner up favorite to the 1st installment. I’m very pleased with the continued ease of use & the puzzles, got to love them all! It’s a mind-bending mystery to you as the player, of knowing what is to come around the next corner. The storylines, I can’t seem to get enough of them. Deep, intense, very mysterious throughout, game play is & graphics engine are beautiful, loading in between are a breeze to save, one of my favorite games between PSone,PS2& PS3 to date. I will without a doubt, recommend this title to all gamers. For the casual gamer, gamer enthusiast, to the hardcore gamer. It’s short in parts, overall a solid piece of artwork. I applaud the studio & creators of this series. The game is a job well done. Hope this way helpful!

So frightening you must see it for yourself

After two games developer Techmo obviously went into making this game knowing that at this point players would be "expecting" to be scared by this game. With this fact in mind I'm sure many who played the other two wondered if they could do it again and YES, this game does deliver and is every bit as good as 1 and 2. The great thing about FF3 is that when you expect something to pop out at you or try to scare you, nothing happens, it just drags and drags, almost until you start to get borred. It is right at this point when you are walking back down the same hallway on say the second or third time something happens that makes you want to wet yourself.

Because of these moments it's easy to say that it could be the best of the series. This game also has a nice twist in that you play as 3 different characters, each with unique abilities.

In the end if you have never played a Fatal Frame game, it really won't matter which one you start with as they are all stand alone stories, however, it makes many references to the first two. This is an excellent game and anyone who wants a good scare should check it out for sure.
