Excerpt: ‘ Project Zero 2 will scare you witless’ said one magazine. ‘Don’t play this with the lights off’ said another. I sat there, in my immense ignorance, repeatedly reassuring myself that there is absolutely no way that a game will ever scare me. And by scare, I mean truly scare. Sure, the bats at the window in Resident Evil 2 made me jump way back when, and when playing Splinter Cell , Hitman or Metal Gear Solid , there are times when it all gets very, very tense, but I’ve...
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...
Conclusion: In summary, this is a fantastic addition to the survival horror genre, and although it doesn't offer anything really groundbreaking in its initial approach, I think the camera system is very innovative, and having ghosts instead of freaks or monsters it offers something different to from the usual survival horror fare.
Pros: Original battle system., Hugely atmospheric., It's very, very scary.
Cons: Not massively different from other survival horror titles., It' s very, very scary.
Summary: I went into this game expecting nothing, I came out like I'd just played my first PS2 title - excited as hell. Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly is one game that all survival horror gamers MUST get, and those not into survival horror genre - well, you’re missing out one of the best games this year.
Excerpt: So, how does the sequel to “The Scariest Game Ever Made” live up to its pedigree? If you’re looking for survival horror with a slight twist, or are a fan of the first game, please, read on… In this respect, the game arguably outdoes its predecessor; the sprites look lovely, and move very convincingly – Mio’s skipping-motion that she uses to hurry down the stairs is charming, and a welcome change from the usual plodding that seems to often be given to characters.
Excerpt: Neues Spielefutter für Grusel-Fans: Tecmo lädt mit 'Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly' für PlayStation 2 zum zweiten Mal zu einem japanischen Horrortrip ein - ganz ohne plakative Gore-Effekte und Zombie-Gemetzel. Wir haben uns furchtlos zur Geisterjagd aufgemacht und berichten von unseren Eindrücken im Test.
Pros: geniale Gruselatmosphäre, atmosphärische Grafik, spannende Story
Summary: Project Zero 2 überzeugt vor allem durch die unglaublich dichte Atmosphäre. Leider hinken besonders das simple Kampfsystem sowie die eher knappe Gesamtspielzeit dem guten Ersteindruck deutlich hinterher. So ist der Titel trotz guter Ansätze kein Anwärter auf den Genre-Thron, kann aber trotzdem jedem Horror-Adventure-Fan nur empfohlen werden.
Conclusion: Os fãs do (excelente) original vão gostar de saber que a sequela é uma oferta muito mais substancial que o seu antecessor. Embora um jogador concentrado possa conseguir fazer o primeiro jogo em cerca de seis horas, o Project Zero 2 representa sem problemas mais de dez horas, e conta com novas funcionalidades, campainhas e assobios (tais como nos "fantasmas em fuga", que não representam perigo, mas desaparecem em poucos segundos - fotografa-os para ganhares pontos extra).
