Title says it all. I suggest having MUCH patients with this one considering many boss fights will have you dying multiple times from hang-ups and miss guided movement when camera angles change.
The story is awesome, the ghost are fairly creepy and its a MUST for anyone who enjoys the Fatal Frame series that has not played it.
The game would have been a solid 8 or 9 if not for the difficultly involved with movement, and while targeting ghosts. Its unfortunate that they modeled the camera as a FSP but did not allow you the ease of movement and targeting that a FPS has. For some reason they stuck the movement on the right stick and the aiming on the left stick and its not changeable. The game would have been much more enjoyable if the standard had been apply or at least an option.

Any fan of survival horror will adore every single second of Fatal Frame! There are no flaws here at all! Unless you count the flaws with EVERY survival horror game made during and before this time.
The atmosphere, the music, the sound effects... ohhhhh the sound effects in this game! WOW! Even EVP's can be heard in the audio log if you are brave enough to turn up the volume!
I know grown men who won't touch this title, it's truly terrifying no joke! Immersive and deadly fun! The enemies are just gorgeous and horrible to look at! Each one tells a story of how they died a most gruesome death!
Ropes will creak and grind, lungs will bubble over with water as the terribly horrific ghosts lurch towards you arms wide open! This is horror at it's absolute best!
The camera system is amazing, it's simple and it just works! It adds a element of RPG style gaming that just gives the game so much more depth than the standard, hit monster over head with pipe, fire gun, rinse repeat.
The atmosphere pours with detail and immerses you into a truly haunting experience! The images in this game will burn into your mind and haunt your dreams, believe me! This is not for the faint of heart! There is a run button but you won't want to use it! You will crawl forward like a little girl! Until it's time to run for your life!
Those brave enough to continue and not send the game back cowering in fear have a truly epic mystery to uncover here! This game stands among the best of the best in my book and deserves nothing less than praise and a perfect 10! The score on here is laughably low! Given by chickens no doubt!
