  • 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.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly is definitely worth a look if you're in the mood to get freaked out. It comes highly recommended to fans of survival horror games, the chilling storyline and the creepy scenes should ruin your sleep for a while and those of you with twin siblings may never look at them the same way again...

Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly

Playstation Illustrated
31 December 2004
  • Excerpt: When it was released, Fatal Frame wasn't able to garner as much attention as those other two 500 pound purple gorillas in the survival horror genre, Resident Evil and Slient Hill . As it usually goes in these situations, this is a shame, since it is arguably the scariest game of the three.
