This game has some really unique game play. You have a special ability to see through your enemies eyes as well as your allies. It's full of stealth missions and some of which are hard. You WILL die a lot, which makes this a very complicated game. You have to think stratically to get through most of the missions. If you like puzzle games you should definitely get this.
better then resident evil and fatal frame combined

this is one of the best, most original horror games ever. you play as about ten different caracters trying to escape a japanese village inhabited by shibito (japanese for "dead body"). the story is told out of order (think pulp fiction) and things you do will effect other people who travel the same path later in the day. your only real weapon is sightjacking since the shibito are indestructable, this lets you see thru the eyes of your enemies and plan your escape since siren doesnt give you a bunch of guns or anyhting, it gives you an umbrella or a frozen towel and a piggy bank. instead of guns blazin you need to strategically think out your escape route, giving you a real feeling of helplessness against the undead army. all the characters are designed after real japanese celebraties, including the guy from Iron Chef, but the voice overs are all done in english, like tea and crumpits english. it just seems weird in a game thats so japanese. also this game is HARD. the enemies cant be killed, theyre already dead, and the only way to stop them is by pulling off crazy ...ss sh...t like that board game mouse trap. this is still one of the scariest games youll find and they did make a sequel but it wasnt released in the US, so rent it and maybe theyll send it overseas. and this game was a side project of team silent, so if you liked silent hill, pick up siren.
