    Fatal Frame is an essential survival horror game. If you are a fan of the genre you simply can’t miss out on this game.

    The game begins with the biggest cliché in survival horror, a creepy mansion. The story is altogether well thought out if a bit confusing at times. The premise is that this mansion has been known to house demonic rituals... Read Full Review

    When I bought this game, I didn't know what to expect. I liked the screenshots, so I thought it would be a great game. Turned out it is one of the best horror, action-adventure games I ever played. It runs up against Res... Read Full Review

    Fatal Frame takes a usual premise and setting and adds a flavor of its own for wonderful results.

    Pros + Very scary atmosphere + Camera upgrades add a few surprises Cons - Movement is painfully slow - Camera controls can be a little awkward The survival horror genre has been dominated by Resident Evil and S... Read Full Review
