Fatal Frame 3
Game Review: Fatal Frame 3 (Ff3)
Now... Ff3 boosts some really nice features... its played mostly Silent Hill 4 style, where you play in 2 dimensions, for Ff3, its dream world, and real world. In dream world, you get to walk around the haunted places, shoot aggressive ghosts, find keys to unlock doors, shoot certain ghosts to unlock even more doors, and go around finding memo's and items.
If you don't already know, Ff is a game in which you basically take your camera and go around shooting ghosts. Its definately not for the faint-hearted. Even for those who are 'man enough', playing this with the lights off at night will definately give you enough of a kick to stop soon after.
In the real world, you get to talk to your cute assistant Miku, who happens to star in Fatal Frame 1. I never did get to complete the game, but i guess her brother's still missing. She helps you research photos that you shoot in your dreams, and tries to piece things together with you in some way. There are no aggressive ghosts in your house(yet), though i almost managed to shoot a picture of a shadow...
The characters are very pretty and quite well done. Though why they dress so nice when they sleep and stay indoors is beyond me. I'm pretty sure you can control her and another guy Kei, later in the game.
About the story part, to keep it short, Rei(star of this series), is touched by a female ghost who's whole body is made up blue tattoos in a haunted manor... and its spreading everyday. She needs to solve the puzzle before the entire tattoo envelops her body, and she gets 'spirited away'...
4/5 stars. Its scary(though not as much as the other 2 in the series), and it keeps you on the edge, and just want to keep on playing. Though sometimes you get stuck because there aren't enough clues... Its all in good fun though.~
