5.0 out of 5 stars A Chilling Encounter!, 20 April 2004
This review is from: Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly (PS2) (Video Game)
At the start of the game, players assume the role of Mio, guiding her downa foggy mountain path while in field mode - which is basically athird-person viewpoint. With Mayu in tow, the girls make their way to thevillage on a terrifying journey in search of answers and encounteringterrors that define what nightmares are made of.
I was a littledisappointed to see that the one area I had issues with in the original -the controls - remained the same in the sequel. Both Mio and Mayu - whobecomes playable at certain points - run a little too slowly and the gameretains the same 3D control scheme that made the original, as well as theResident Evil series, a little annoying to control - especially insituations where you needed to react quickly, turn tail andrun
Visually, Project Zero 2 is a very beautiful game. The charactermodels look really smooth with generous amounts of solid textures paintingthe characters and environments of the game. The environments themselvesare even more impressive this time around, the dark settings accompaniedby atmospheric effects such as fog and soft light-sourcing effectscertainly give the visuals a creepy look. The environments seemed to bedesigned in a way that would lead one to believe that there's somethinglurking around every corner in the game - and usually, there is!
Ascreepy as the visuals are, the music is just as chilling. A beautifullyhaunting soundtrack fills the air with some nice orchestral-styledundertones that really enhance the experience. The sound effects certainlyhaven't taken a backseat neither as there are lots of ambient sounds tospook you off the edge of your bed.
There are lots of extras, includingmultiple endings, a mission mode, new costumes for Mayu and Mio, addeddifficulty settings, chapter selections, a gallery mode and more - that upthe replay value considerably.
Overall, despite some minor issues, Zero: Crimson Butterfly is an amazinggame backed by a powerful storyline that really draws you into the gameand keeps you craving for more. You'll be hard pressed not to get creepedout by the ambient noises and haunted environments throughout the game.While some may consider it a bit on the short side I felt the 11 hoursinvested in completing the game felt just right and wasn't too long or tooshort.
