    Those who played Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly on the PS2 know that it's a great psychological creep-fest, and now the game has arrived for the Xbox bigger, badder, and more beautiful.
  4. A chilling adventure that makes your skin crawl. The new FPS mode is simply great and makes playing the game much more effortless. [Mar. 05]
  5. An absolutely great update to what was already a wonderfully spooky game.
  6. An enjoyable but ultimately routine sequel.
  7. The intriguing storyline, scary setting and unique battle system make for a frightening and memorable experience.

    This game was a little easy, but it scared the crap out of me, and that is what I wanted. Best horror game ever.

    The game is one of the greatest that you'll ever find. The storyline grabs the player into finishing the game. The only flaw is the game is rather short. Expand

    Perfect horror game , i played it many times but always get scary . You walk alone in the darkness without knowing where it lead you to, find your beloved without knowing what is the result. Scary, touching, alone...... Collapse

    this game is honestly one of the scariest games I've played, at least for the first two hours, because then you start to get a bit used to, but still continues to be scary. the horror of the game is probably the greatest aspect, because the gameplay doesn't have anything special to it, infact its awkward to move around at most times, but if your a horror junkie, this is a must play. When I first started this game, I could only play for like 15 min at a time (mind you, I was playing late at night) because I was so uncomfortable and nervous. great for scares, but not exactly a fun game Expand
