Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly (Wii) Review

14 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Tecmo’s revamp of its often-revered 2003 classic, Crimson Butterfly, has come at a peculiar time for Nintendo’s ageing hardware. It’s been a long time since the console’s boom period some years ago and with motion gaming no longer being an exclusive perk, the Wii has struggled to gain purchase on...
  • Pros: Original narrative that keeps the game moving., Plenty of collectibles to be found., New content for returning fans, including Haunted House mode., Great visuals help anchor the setting and characters., A standalone 9-10 hour game.
  • Cons: Motion controls add very little to the experience., Polish does little to cover up the out-dated design and mechanics., It’s fairly easy to get lost during later chapters.

10 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Haunted House mode, unique to the Wii release, is a little too transparent and cute to work as a proper horror segment, although it can also be viewed as an interesting reimagining of the Project Zero model as a social experience.

Nintendo Life
12 June 2012
  • Summary: There aren't many games that have you anxious to slide aside a curtain; Project Zero 2: Wii Edition does. It's a fine example of a survival horror game despite some awkward controls and an over-reliance on cut scenes that occasionally break the moment.

Project Zero 2 review

24 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Project Zero 2 is a remake of a game that came out 10 years ago. It's conceptually strong but it's held down by a number of shortcomings.
  • Pros: Unique concept. Great horror theme and visuals. Chilling audio and voices through the Wii Remote.
  • Cons: Slow Story. Slow Gameplay. Slow characters. Average voice acting. Minimal sense of achievement. Second player gaming seems like an afterthought.
