So much more than war...

Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

I was in ninth grade when I first played Fatal Frame. Everything about this game is bend on making a person completely tense and genuinely afraid, and that's exactly what it did, and still does to me. For the time, the graphics are very good. The ghosts look great, although very transparent, and are realistic. Much detail is added to the game as well. As you jog throughout the mansion, little clouds of dust are summoned, following your footfalls. Ocassionally you'll walk by a table, or a dresser, and something will fall off. It all adds to the overall creepiness of the game. The big doozy here is the sound of the game. The sound is really what sets the tension, whether it be the main soundtrack of haunting vocals, or the screams of the ghosts as they try to kill you, or the heartbeat of Miku as a ghost approaches. It all adds up to create quite a terrifying experience.

     The use of the camera to capture ghosts is unlike anything that has ever been used in a horror game. It's very innovative and unique appeal contributes to the game, and adds even more to the already eerie pallet of the game. Battle with the ghosts is made much more tense as you use the camera because of the switch to the 1st person perspective.

     Not only the story itself is satisfying and dark, but the backstory that is told as well.

Overall, Fatal Frame is one of the best survival horror games out there, and shouldn't be missed.
