    A decent enough game but too much running away from the stalkers makes the game a big pain in the buttcheeks and it is a tad on the short side.

    Very scary game, but not the best survival horror. The stalkers are on to you all the time, leaving almost no time for thinking. Should have been less run-and-hide more puzzle.

    Based on jap version: Great game in a way great voice acting guess it be the same for usa version, great way of running away from killer, reminds me of the redsident evil nemisis but combat is not very good in which you use holy water to fight, and mainly you just run. You fight the killer near end of stage with a crossbow. Puzzles to sovle etc. The cutscenes are great. The maojr letdown Based on jap version: Great game in a way great voice acting guess it be the same for usa version, great way of running away from killer, reminds me of the redsident evil nemisis but combat is not very good in which you use holy water to fight, and mainly you just run. You fight the killer near end of stage with a crossbow. Puzzles to sovle etc. The cutscenes are great. The maojr letdown in the game is replay. The game takes bout 4 to 5 hours to beat. Once done you get like a gallery, and a key for alternate costumes, also playing second time, the bosses have different weapons thats it really. If completed again, no more save file after. So only take bout few days to complete, so it's a rent and a must play for me. Expand

    Capcom's eerie cutscenes make the game well worth its M rating, but if you are apalled by the violent nature of video games these days, don't bother blaming Japan. Your kids are more than likely bigger fans of Manhunt ...which was developed right here in the good 'ole USA. Unlike Manhunt, Clock Tower 3 isn't worth buying.

    This has the same rape-escape play mechanic as Haunting Ground. As its years later, you can tell this type never took off for Capcom. Your character is not powerful enough to dish it back out on the bad guys. You get victimized when a ghost or monster is on the screen. Even Silent Hill gave you something to fight with. The environments and character models are really cool. The music andThis has the same rape-escape play mechanic as Haunting Ground.

    The graphic violence is shocking. The story is captivating and the disturbing scenes are sure to make even hardcore gamers a little queasy.
  2. 80
    It utterly breaks the subdued mold of the series.

    As an experience of mood and horror - the villain delivers scenes of shocking violence - CT III works. [May 2003, p.62]
