Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir
2 September 2013
Summary: In theory, the idea behind Spirit Camera is brilliant. Exploiting the 3DS' augmented reality features to turn players into ghost hunters is a marvelous undertaking. I love the thought of scurrying around the house, pretending the 3DS is a magic camera that can see malevolent spirits in the real...

Conclusion: For about half the standard asking price, Spirit Camera would be worth picking up. This is a fine spooky story — not as spooky as it would be in the dark but still spooky — and it’s a cool showpiece for some new concepts in gaming technology and design.

Excerpt: Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is a unique augmented reality adventure game that uses the features of the 3DS extensively. The gyros, the 3D effect, the external 3D cameras and the inward-facing 2D camera are all used to create a short but effective story in the Project Zero (or Fatal Frame)...
Excerpt: Spirit Camera: Cursed Memoirs is a spin-off of the Fatal Frame series. An ‘augmented reality’ horror story, the game immerses the player in a world of ghosts and spirits while at the same time showcasing the technological capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS.
Excerpt: Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is the best Augmented Reality game we've played, but that's not saying much.
