Okay first of all I must say that at the beginning I had not realized it was the protagonist Rei who killed her fiancé Yuu in a car accident. Yuu !!! Seriously!!!! You let the Rei drive the car knowing that she was a awful driver, I suppose you did not get to know her the day before.
Well, but moving forward, this Title brings the real world and the dream world. In the real world, the player can walk through Rei’s house as he pleases, here Miku, the protagonist of the Fatal Frame 1 will in gathering information from photos taken in the dream. I know it seems confusing but yes, certain photos that are taken with the camera obscura, need to be revealed in the dark chamber that exists in the house. Not forgetting during the game is going to have some paranormal phenomena.
In the dream world the player has a vast mansion to explore but sometimes become confused to the point of going around the larger site to the right place. The villain of this title is one of my favorites, I’m feel sorry that the last thing she saw was his lover dying in front of her eyes. Truthfully I do not know who was to blame whether it was Amane sister’s of Reika lover or himself, assuming he knew men were not allowed in the chamber of thorns. And because of this the collapse happens and the curse is born.
Throughout the adventure the player knows other characters that have become part of the curse. An accident victim, a widow with a child, builders used as sacrifice, victim of assault, etc.
I have to say that I had to play several times to better understand the history of the game. The soundtrack that surrounds the game is one of my favorites. Not to mention the environment itself.
One of the things I liked a lot was the possibility of playing with 3 characters, each of them has different abilities. Rei walks in search of Yuu to say the last farewells, Miku who wants to go with the brother to the other side and Kei walks there looking for a solution for his niece Mio (protagonist of the Fatal Frame 2), where he falls to the curse.
One of the things I do not like much about was the pure light, it’s basically active after breaking the shire seal. Basically there is time before the screen is monochrome and Reika attack, it is not worth fighting because it is dead right, the solution is go looking for a pure light to get out of monochrome. This limits the exploration of the mansion in later chapters.
As in the previous titles there are many varied of ghosts and as such there are cool and boring ghosts and the boring of this title are the Maiden little girls, if a fight with one is already difficult then with 4 is plenty.
In this title there are some side quest, like the one of the mother and daughter, woman of long hair among others. There are two possible endings you can get.
If it’s worth it? Of course.
