Summary: Ok, the game is good but its presentation is soooooo bad... I realized that since the first video of Risky Woods (for those who don´t know, Risky Woods was announced in TGS´07, and then disappeared... and after years that´s the game, with another name and the same horrible graphics we saw years ago)... a B-classic, but I cannot give it more than 3 stars...
Summary: Deadly Premonition won`t win any awards for graphics, sound, or voice acting, but the story and adventure are relatively engrossing. Definitely worth $20 compared to a lot of other better-looking games that cost 3 times as much but are less fun to play.
Amazing game behind this strange Japanese translat

Summary: At first glance this game seems to be a "What the..." kind of foreign game. Keep going and this game will take you on ONE crazy ride. You will fall in love with the quirky nature of Francis York Morgan. Worth the grueling run through and if you don't feel up to it, you could always watch Giant Bomb's endurance run with Brad.
Summary: By far the best game I've played in a long while, despite having a significantly lower budget than all of the recent triple A releases that have come out in the past few years. It may not be the prettiest game, or the most well-designed, but boy is it entertaining through and through. I played through the whole game over the span of a few weeks with some buddies of mine (I played and they watched) and we couldn't stop laughing the whole way through.
Game looks mediocre and handles poorly but all of that is hiding a truly great gaming experience.

Summary: First of all, if you are a Twin Peaks fan, I strongly suggest you consider getting this game. Deadly Premonition is not a game for everyone. Even though I have given this game a perfect 5 stars, it is not at all a perfect game. The graphics are very so-so. The gunplay is bad to be honest. Where this game shines though is in it's unique story and interesting world that Swery has created.
Summary: "Deadly Premonition" was an almost-instant buy for me. The storyline seemed a little bit like Twin Peaks and other mystery/horror games, but it was fun enough to buy at $17. I got a lot more than I bargained for. The game takes place in Greevale, a fictional American town that seems a lot like a New England setting due to all the rain and ocean-views you encounter. You play Francis York Morgan, an FBI agent assigned to the case of the brutal murder of Anna Graham.
Summary: My husband got me this game for christmas and I love it!! I really enjoy games with a good storyline and this had that. It was a bit scary for me, but I just turned up the brightness and played when my duaghter was with me (she is 21 just in case people think I'm a bad mom). Some people say they don't like how the controls work, but I say like every new game you start out - you have to get use to the controls and then its just second nature.
