  • Excerpt: Tecmo immediately sets the stage for this eerie adventure, both aurally and visually. Returning from the first game are the deteriorated black and white film sequences. This classic feel, along with the overall dark and brooding nature of the levels, drapes the game in shadow and makes the simple light sources, for simple candles to the solitary beam of a flashlight, all the more powerful.

It's probably not all that frightening, then, to learn that the sequel (which, as it turns out, is actually a prequel) is every bit as adept at loosening bowels and bladders as the first game, and actually...

  • Excerpt: Fatal Frame , despite a wacky premise--young Japanese girl ghosthunting with an ancient camera--came out of nowhere, and turned out to be one of the single best horror games of all time.

  • Conclusion: A deeply psychological approach to survival horror game that adopts a slightly more action-based rather than shock-value approach to the genre. The settings are lush and wonderfully created, with some truly disturbing elements like mysterious characters you can talk to added to the blend to create something thats half Spirited Away, half The Ring.
