I cannot fully express just how much I loved this game! The graphics were amazing (considering it's time), it only took me two or three ghost fights in order to get a hang of the controls, and I was scared out of my mind! This is not a game you want to play at night when it's dark. You will be scared.
You play as Miku Hinasaki, a young girl looking for her missing older brother, Mafuyu, in the mysterious (and haunted) Himoro Mansion. With a ghost capturing camera and a flashlight to light your way, it is your job to fight your way through the mansion and the vengeful ghosts to save your missing brother.
Throughout the whole game I was on the edge of my seat, heart racing, blood pressure rising, and scaring myself silly. But I had a wonderful time playing! The story was deep and interesting, there was tons of reply ability, and the characters were great!
I highly recommend this game to people who are looking for a fun game that you will absolutely love, with tons of replay ability, multiple endings, a good challenge, an adrenaline rush, and a good scare! Happy ghost hunting!

This game will frighten the pants off of you. Do not, I repeat, do not play this game with the lights on during the day. It won't have the same effect as when you play it at night, in a pitch-black room with maybe a candle or two lit. If the creepiness factor of walking around a haunted house with only a flashlight and a camera makes your skin crawl, this game is perfect for you.
The controls are fairly simple, and the story is mysterious. If you are a big fan of the dark and mysterious, you will definitely be entertained by this title.
The only weapon you have is the camera. It's no ordinary camera because it posesses supernatural powers. You have tools to help fight those ghosts. You have your sixth sense, a flashlight, documents that will help you solve puzzles in the game, etc. This is a really scary game. You can play by yourself if you dare or have someone accompany you.
Pros: This is the kind of game that would really scare your pants off. The graphics are quite textured well and the eerie sounds are well sounded. First person mode is Ok and you can explore while you're in finder mode around you but watch out for ghosts!
Cons: There isn't much of a problem playing the game. I never had any problems while playing it! I can't say it's a perfect game. When you walk around, the camera is fixed and only pans like a security camera, it won't follow you or anything. Maybe it's a part to give you the chills?
It's a good game to play and for players who has the courage to play the game!
