Main character crazy or serial killer on the loose? Why not both?

  • Summary: Despite some pretty decent flaws, I still recommend this game. It has memorable characters and a story that draws you in. You play as an FBI agent sent out to investigate a murder in a small Washington town. It feels like a B-movie, but somehow that only adds to the charm. To start with the bad, the endgame is feels padded, the framerate drops for a split second every so often, and the visuals are dated.

  • Summary: After hearing how much this was basically, "Twin Peaks in video game form" I knew I had to check it out and I gotta say I wasn't disappointed. Much like Agent York, if you have a fondness for midnight movie weirdness you are going to love this game. The story is nuts and didn't lose momentum. I really enjoyed all the side-quest stuff that allowed me to become more well acquainted with the locals.

Weird, BUt I like It

  • Summary: I am a female gamer [yes, they exist] and I adore Silent Hill and Fatal Frame [I've replayed them so many times that my bf teases me]. I mainly play system games and avoid the PC games [unless it's a system game with a controller calibrated]. So you won't find me playing DOTA or Starcraft. But I play everything else. I watched some twin peaks and yes, the similarities are there. This game is really weird. If you liked Rule of Rose, you will like this.

A true gem.

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying, this game is NOT for everybody. It has some fairly noticeable performance issues (though not game-breaking) and has textures that remind me at times of a 90s PC shooter. The plot can be very campy, silly, and downright ridiculous at times. The combat, while functional, is no contender with those on the market now. All that out of the way...

The best survival horor game on the market

Chance Briggs, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: Overall, I would say that this would probably be considered one of the best survival horror games of all time had it been released a decade or so ago. As such, the game itself feels like a relic from another era, even though Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut was released this year. The game feels like a fanfic version of Twin Peaks with the game play elements of survival horror games such as Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and at times Clock Tower.

Improved-Kinda

  • Summary: I am one of the few people who loved this game when it came out. What's not to love? A complete homage to everything 80's. I think the people who have slammed this game do not get it. There is a reason the graphics, and controls(in the original version anyway) are not up to the next gen games. They are showing their love of everything from the 80's with this, and that is why those things are the way they are.

mixed Bag but good

  • Summary: Survival horror fans will definitely need to play this.Sometimes it is silly ,sometimes serious. Graphics and game play wise it seems to be Ps1 (Driving) sometimes the gun play reminds me of most dreamcast games--please can I move, and shoot??,why can I not on the ps3.I know this is a XB360 port, And once in a blue moon it may feel like you are playing a ps2 game.Muddy graphics,clean graphics.It is a total mixed bag of generations of old play mechanics ,but that being...

A unique title you'll hopefully enjoy

chuck00, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm sure you've read all this before, but here's my take on this game. For the first 6-8 hours I really had to actively try to enjoy this game. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, humor and plain WTF moments that it offered, but was really turned off by the fact that it seemed the game was almost trying to fight me to get the enjoyment out of it.

A flawed yet unforgettable experience

Brad Robison, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: This rereleased version of Deadly Premonition is advertised to have improved visuals and refined controls in comparison to the original release. Having only seen the first release of this game played I cannot say with certainty whether or not either aspect has improved. For the most part, the graphics give the impression of a game in beta stages rather than an actual release.
