    Adding a whole new level to survival horror.

    Does Resident Evil scare the crud out of you? Does your stomach knot up at the thought of Haunting Ground? Maybe now it does...but not after you play Fatal Frame 2. The story is a refreshment from the typical survival... Read Full Review

    If you're the type of person who gets into the atmosphere in games, this will be scary as hell.

    You play as Mio, a young Japanese girl who is visiting the forest she used to play in as a child. Your twin sister, Mayu, is kind of creepy and has supernatural tendencies. They find themselves in the Lost Village, where... Read Full Review

    Give credit to Tecmo for an innovative game that will definitely give you the creeps!

    I'm a fan of horror-survival games, and when I found out about the Fatal Frame series there was no question I'd be playing them as soon as I could get a hold of them. For some reason FF 2 is much more accessible than th... Read Full Review

    This game is wonderfully unique and gives a great scare.

    This game is by far my favorite in the series. There are scares around every corner and the story line itself is enough to keep anyone on their toes. The ghosts are just as memorable as the main characters and each ghost... Read Full Review

    In the second Fatal Frame game, you play as a young women (Mayu) who is trying to save her beloved sister, Mio, from a grisly death. The two girls eventually are confused with Sae and Yae- two sisters that actually were... Read Full Review

    This isn't the typical horror survival game, so if you think your going to blow up zombies/ghost/ect. you're better off just not playing this game. If you want a different kind of horror game than this is the game for yo... Read Full Review

    Downright terrifying. Blows Resident Evil away.

    I've never been a big fan of survival horror games. Not Resident Evil or Alone In The Dark or House Of The Dead. To me, such types of games have always been slow, dull, and decidedly NOT scary. Zombies just aren't scary ... Read Full Review

    fatal frame 2 crimson butterfly review!! also known as project zero.

    I have to say i'm into games like this and i loved the first one. The graphics and the whole plot is gripping all the way through. This game is based around twins MIO and MAYU. The beggining cutscene introduces them to... Read Full Review

    Warning: Do not play in the dark...

    When I got this game, I thought it would be sort of like a boring mystery game...until I played it. They way you kill enemies (or exorcise them, as they're already dead) is unlike any other game, besides it's other two i... Read Full Review
