    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.

    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.

    My biggest problem is how the camera obscura works in this game I like it better number one way just have to pointer camper and wait for itMy biggest problem is how the camera obscura works in this game I like it better number one way just have to pointer camper and wait for it to full the gate where it this one you have to for the correct moment to take a picture to make any kind of real damage. the original took about 3 hours to complete and it was intens all the way through ,fatal Frame 2 took me 6 hours and I used part 3hr of them just walking around and looking for the way too get to The next three section at looking for every nook and cranny to find the way to programs, if it wasn't for podcasting YouTube videos I would have been so bored while playing this is, I would still recommended but it is my least favorite fatal Frame game Expand
