    Okay; I know the Fatal Frame series pretty well. I own the whole trilogy now; and my favorite is the second. So keep in mind that I played the first one last; which may be why I have it as the lowest ...

    Tecmos' Fatal Frame remains true to traditional survival horror atmosphere, gameplay and storytelling.

    Rated on September 08, 2004 by akhorahill
