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.
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...
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Summary: deadly premonition is strange in so many ways, out of nowhere music moments, a guy that talks to his imaginary friend zack(which might be the player playing the game) and disturbing enemy sounds. alot of funny moments too. this game is sort of a film noir about a murder of a young woman in a small town. playing this game is like seeing a bad b movie, but in this rare case its very worth it!
Summary: While Deadly Premonition is strictly a budget title as far as gameplay and graphics (which is why, even with the "Director's Cut" frills, I think the pricing is still a bit high), the game excels when it comes to story, humor, characters and uniqueness. No one has ever played a game quite like this, unless they've played this game. Deadly Premonition took me 8 days to finish, which says something as the game took 21 hours to beat.
