This was my first such title to play. At first I was frightened by everything. Every little noise i heard i was on alert. But as the game progresses the scale of fear has dropped considerably.
One of the things I loved about this game was the overall atmosphere, not only the fact that I did not know what was going to happen at the next corner, but also the little promenades with powder that hangs in the air of the mansion. There will be several occasions when people can be photographed, past events that took place in the mansion.
I would never say that the developers would use an old photographic camera (which in turn belonged to the protagonist’s mother) as an exorcist for ghosts. Not forgetting that there are x types of rollers and various lenses that can be discovered throughout the game. One of the cool things I found from the Gameplay of the camera is that it has to do a full recharge to be able to cause a greater damage to the ghosts and against boss it is fundamental to do it.
Some of the puzzles themselves are not very difficult, but what can become boring is the ghosts, each puzzle = ghost. Even the exploration of the mansion is the same.
I went there looking for more about the story that involved the plot, and from what they say on the net that this is a true story. The images I saw of the Himuro mansion on the net by chance are very much like it from the outside or in some rooms. But each draws its own conclusion.
One of the things that does not make much sense in the story is why they allowed outsiders (men) to enter the mansion, likely to fall in love and spoil the ritual (which was the case). And to put more wood in the fire, the head master of the family along with the four priests made all worse by killing the visitor.
To finish this review, I did not like much the first end of the game, in which Mafuyo stay with Kirie? Like seriously, Mafuyo!!! Miku live horrors in the mansion and you stay in the mansion with a ghost who are doing her duty as Maiden? One of two things or he was already dead when Miku found him or he is stupid.
