Summary: (This part of the review is for the Directors cut version of the game)I love Deadly Premonition it's the strangest game I've ever played. I ranked the original a 10/10. And the director's cut improved the controls, added some extra cutscenes and has slightly improved graphics. Why then did I give the director's cut a 4 star review? Well for one reason and one reason only-Frame rate.
Summary: You play as Special Agent Francis York Morgan a.k.a. York. The quiet town of Greenvale requires your services, as a gruesome murder has unsettled the peace. The ritualistic manner of the death coincides with similar murders across America. It doesn't stop there, the psychotic Raincoat Killer has returned to make York's investigation dive into a shadowy world thought to be long forgotten.
Summary: Finally got the Platinum trophy for this and it was an experience i will not forget. The combat, driving, enemies and the graphics are woefully bad, but underneath is a great story with a fantastic lead character. I was in tears some times at how totally absurd the story was and how bad the acting and music was. For some reason i loved this game, the story is complete nuts but so well done, If you don't mind a game with a few flaws then i recommend this title.
Far more than the some of its parts and better than I thought it could be.

Summary: The faults are many and to some people will be unforgivable. But if you love open world games, you love survival horror, quirkiness, deep characters and an astonishingly good storyline/ crime mystery then please try this. It deserves to be a cult classic on originality alone. Graphics 4/10 The hardware of modern consoles means that graphics are rarely so bad as to make a game unplayable and it is the same here.
Excerpt: "Deadly Premonition Directors Cut is the ported over version of the game originally an XBOX 360 exclusive. I have already played this game on the XBOX but sadly when I moved a year ago didn't bring it with me. I did however convince my boyfriend it was good enough to purchase, although it did take quite some time to find. We searched everywhere having no luck in shops and eventually thought about renting it from Lovefilm however that didn't turn up ...
Pros: Very strange game makes it interesting, good characters, lots of suspense filled moments
Summary: So I wasn't sure if I should get Deadly Premonition or not as it seemed to receive mixed reviews. I can happily say I actually really enjoyed this game! It's sort of... Silent Hill meets LA Noire meets the SIMS. I know weird concoction right? But that's exactly what this game is... A little weird.
Summary: The game is really good,albeit odd. It arrived after the expected time by a week and the case of the game was broken. When it is opened the spine part is smashed. Other then that the game is good.
Summary: Well I pre-ordered this game from Amazon. It arrived on it's release date. The service I got was absolutely amazing but I started to play it there was no sound and the game kept lagging every five to ten minutes. I contacted Amazon for to get a replacement. They sent me a new one. When I received it there was still no sound. It turned out that I had to system restore my console. Since then it has been working since.
A vast improvement over the original (and I own both)

Summary: Deadly Premonition is a great game and the director's cut is a definite improvement over the original Xbox360 version. Before buying the game myself, I had a lot of trouble finding out if there was an actual improvement over the xbox version or not - so rather than review the game I'm just going to list the actual changes. Graphics: The Graphics are a vast improvement over the original xbox version.
Summary: There's always a but isn't there? Allow me to explain... I pre-ordered this game from another site (sorry amazon - please forgive me!) because I had a gift card that needed using, and brilliantly it turned up a day early so I have had a chance to play for awhile and here are my findings so far.
