I have been a big fan of the game for a long time and fatal frame III holds its ground with the other 2 games. At first the game started off dark but as the game goes on it gets just, well evil is the only word for it. so, if you like to be Scarred and or you like the other fatal frame games then you will like this one.

(WARING this game is additive, its like a disease)

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...
