  1. Scarier than "Silent Hill 2" and harder than a dozen "Genma Onimusha"s, this is simply amazing stuff.
  2. For those of you who like to be creeped out, wigged out, or just plain scared, I can't recommend Fatal Frame enough. It uses just about all the senses to weave together a highly unsettling and downright scary experience.
  3. Those rare folk that love both "Myst" and "Resident Evil" should praise the heavens. [Jan 2003, p.114]
  4. I'm positive this is going to be many players' choice for game of the year.
  5. One of the strangest, most well-executed concepts in the history of the survival/horror genre.
  6. 88
    While titles like "Resident Evil" rely on shock value and cheap scares, Fatal Frame genuinely frightens in the worst possible way; slowly and subtly, ebbing away at you like a flesh-rotting disease.
  7. This is not a game for casual, pick-up-and-play gamers. You'll need to spend a good chunk of time learning the nuances of surviving. [Jan 2003, p.86]
