To many similarities...??

I am a huge fan of the fatal frame series. i find these to be one of the best games that i have played, yet with this game i felt there was to many similarities between FF3 and FF2. Not just in play style either. its almost if they just copy and pasted a large portion of FF2 into FF3...

I have yet to finish this game and will continue to play and see what directions the game will go in, but at this point its becoming a bit hard to commit to having played the previous games... i know that its a series and that i would be offended if it didnt follow the same pattern of previous games, however to use the exact same scenarios, location, and characters in a cut and paste manner such as this is a bit too far...

Will keep ya posted but lets just hope that the new fatal frame for Wii (already released in Japan and has been for some time) will make its way to us in the us so we can continue to enjoy a wonderful new chapter in an already epic adventure through this series..

First off let me say that up to this point the series was continually getting better, I loved Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly it was/is one of my favorite survival horror games, primarily because it had an enthralling story, and I was able to easily overlook many of it's superficial flaws because of it...The Tormented (Player), however falls flat on many accords, so many I couldn't even bring myself to finish the title...The main reason? The story...You begin by playing Rei, who loses her lover in a car accident, and somehow (years later?), end up doing research/photographing an ancient Japanese mansion (sound familiar?), accompanied by your assistant Miko (of the first FF game)...Rei spots Yu (her dead lover), and all so our story begins it's almost like a bad translation of what could have been a promising Japanese horror movie...There's a half-naked Japanese woman with a snake tattoo that dominates the story, but it's never clear exactly why...But the true villain of this story is the BAD EDITING...After each scenario your taken away from the Mansion and back to Rei's house where menial task are required in order to get the story back on track it's almost like required intermission in between each Acts, and it was a horrible idea, but the only way to thread so many playable characters into the game...Miko from the original title who should be having a serious case of deja vu, acts as if she is in complete denial, or just has mental block of the previous traumatic events it's truly mind boggling...I got about halfway in before I gave up on the game ever making any sense...Maybe it gets better after that, but from most the FAQS I checked into it didn't seem likely...My advice? Pass this one up, and if you haven't played Crimson Butterfly, get that instead...
