Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Deadly Premonition may be the most well known review I've ever written. It's certainly one of the most debated 10/10 scores I've ever awarded -- though I've not awarded too many. It's a score I stand by wholeheartedly, and Deadly Premonition remains the review of which I am most proud.

Walking On The Weird Side

GIN
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Let me just get right to the point: Deadly Premonition is a weird, weird game. Some parts of it try to play off like horror, while the rest of it does tongue-in-cheek and absurd humor.

I Can’t Believe They Released This Game, Zach

26 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Deadly Premontion would score way higher if there were no guns. An amazing narrative and lovingly crafted universe brought down by archaic gameplay and weird pacing. Absolutely worth your time if you appreciate the sublime.

Expert Review

GameSpot
8 May 2013
  • Summary: It's breakfast. FBI agent Francis York Morgan sits at one end of an impossibly long table. The octogenarian hotel proprietor Polly Oxford sits at the other. "It might help to hear you better if I could sit closer," calls out Francis. Polly thinks it's a come-on.
  • Pros: Fantastically weird story loaded with eccentric characters, Residents go about their daily lives in authentic fashion, There's always a narrative or gameplay surprise around the corner, Many hours of exploration and lots of memorable moments for a great price
  • Cons: Ancient production values, Uncomfortably fluctuating frame rate, Useless map

Game Informer
30 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: A Twin Peaks-inspired adventure that has players investigating a grisly small-town murder in the Pacific Northwest Graphics: You can tell the difference if you directly compare screens, but the improvements are not drastic.
