Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly is definitely worth a look if you're in the mood to get freaked out.

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.
