The best survival horror out there,
By A Customer
This review is from: Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly (PS2) (Video Game)
The story of this game is absolutely engrossing. You are a little girl with a twin sister trapped in a lost village. The pieces of notes you gather throughout the game plus the lavish cut-scenes alone can keep you on the edge of your sit worrying about what's the destiny of our cute heorines, assuming they can survive till the end. This is besides the horrors of all the ghosts and atmosphere which is really scar. The graphic is sharp and rich and the sound effect is so awsome. The gameplay is quite sophisticated. There are various film type and power ups available. You have to aim for the shot, and the better you aim and time, the more points you get. You can then use the points to upgrade your camera obsura. You can also have a shot at many non-hostile, but fast fading ghosts to boost up your points. A little RGP element is nice, especially when the upgrades and items are carried to another game.
The game has high replay value as well. Various customs unlock. Missions mode (not taken form some part of the game) to complete particular objective. To complete an additional chapter on hard mode unlocked after playing the game once to view a better ending. And a nightmare mode after that as well. The game took about 50+ hours for a go including reload time, if you try to explore everything and without help. There are many places which you can visit quite a few times to get extra items/points.
