Summary: this is the worst Fatal Frame game I have ever played, and I am a big fan of the series. in fact I'd put it up there as one of the worst games I have played of any sort. it's that bad, and I'm not exaggerating in the slightest. for one thing the game is just annoying. as others have said the room that you play in has to be lit extremely well or the camera can't properly pick up an image of the included AR book, which is required to play the game.
A release I consider genuinely insulting in it's awfulness

Summary: WTF was the thinking behind this release exactly? I mean, I GET that the idea of a game where the primary method of gameplay is using a magic camera to bust ghosts being on a console where the actual camera attached to it can be used as part of the game leads to a pretty obvious conclusion... but at some point surely someone... SOMEWHERE who was involved in the development of this game must have actually played it and thought to themselves "Hang on...
Summary: I picked this game out on the cheap, (£15) after hearing about how the AR was used and I also enjoy horror games. What I got was a boring inactive storyline using an AR book about some faceless ghosts. I knew I should have listened to the reviews on this game before trying it, they were all bad and were right. My main problem with the game is some of the stupid design choices it has.
Summary: This game has technical problems. Which I will cover in several points. First and foremost, you need light to play (a horror game, yes) and pretty bright light. Your own shadow is enough to make the game unplayable. This is because the 3DS isn't good at picking up light with its camera and that the included AR book is printed in very dark colors.
