Maiden of Black Water Review Hante Like a VHS Cassette
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water Review
The first entrance to the Fatal Frame series came out in North America for PS2 in 2002, and was strongly inspired by the tendency then Japanese horror movies that followed the original movie. Two suites, also for PS2, followed in 2003 and 2005. There was a fourth game of the series for Nintendo Wii, but he did not leave Japan. The fifth game of the series, was originally published for the Wii U in 2015, and has now been remilling with updated orders for all modern consoles. The big questions I asked about this version were: how will the game be controlled, since the original version used the Wii U game joystick in a fairly unique way, and how an old horror style 20 years old will he take 2021? The scary factor of Maiden of Black Water will depend heavily on the fact that young Japanese women with too long hair can always be terrifying.
I would say that what is really scary is very subjective, and I find that a lot of negative critics of fatal frame: Maiden of Black Water focus on the fact that it was not scary enough. To be honest, I rarely panic by playing horror games or looking at horror movies; It s not where my pleasure comes from them. I do not care that Fatal Frame does not be afraid, as long as it s fun to play, interesting to watch, unique with some of his ideas and / or a world I find interesting.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water drips from an intriguing horror atmosphere. The story follows three different protagonists while investigating the supernatural events involving the death of young girls from the sanctuary at Hikami Mountain. It is a pretty good story, and I really enjoyed its episodic nature and its multiple prospects. But where Maiden of Black Water shines is in his presentation of history. The game starts with the player controlling a woman in an underground lake, surrounded by ghosts strangely attractive. Instead of following his story, we are treated quickly about his disappearance and we are told that our story will be held where these events took place. It was a very good narrative punch in the guts, and who immediately hung me.
horror so dated that it feels fresh
And I really did not find that horror images were dated. It was actually a rather refreshing horror experience to see something so Japanese today. There are elements of the gameplay that are very typical of the survival horror, but the images were more refreshing than dated. It reminded me of strange ps2 survival horror games like Clock Tower 3, Rule of Rose, Haunting Ground and, of course, fatal frame. These survival horror games were all pretty unique in their atmosphere and were trying to play with the established Formula Resident Evil / Silent Hill. There are rigid controls, linear paths and difficult times, but captivating ideas that eclipse these gaps.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water s unique gameplay hook is his camera mechanism. It appears by pressing a button and passes the third perspective to the first person. The direction is modified with a combination of the right joystick and motion controls. Some appearances can only be seen through the goal of the camera, and ghosts are damaged when the camera flashes. Taking photos uses movie, and there are different types of movies and goals that can be changed. The controls of the camera are a very fun and unique game mechanism. It took a while to get used to it, but I admired how Maiden of Black Water took control of the Wii U and kept them interesting through the use of motion controls. The game also offers many situations where photos must be taken quickly, and the game has some replayability where to capitalize on these moments gives cosmetic unlocks.
New additions to this 2021 edition include improved resolution, new outfits and accessories, SNAP mode (press L + Y to rearrange everything on the screen to create aesthetically enjoyable photos – this feature is just for fun and N There is no impact on normal game.), a list of updated ghosts and updated controls. The most notable aspect of these are the commands, but it is a game from 15 to 20 hours, with some replayability and an economic price. The new additions will not justify a reageration for all those who have the Wii U version, but for those who do not have it, they do the job.
The graphics are very good PS3 caliber, and are perfect for the game. This will not be a system showcase, but the kind and style are well served. Framerate hiccups from time to time, but nothing that spoiled my experience. Music and sound effects are fantastic though. Although the game is not stuffed with jump fears (which I find anyway cheaply), the soundscape offers an excellent feeling of fright. Although I have never been afraid by playing, there was always an increased sense of emergency. I was never sitting back and bored by the movements to play. The sounds have kept me completely engaged.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is a very good return to the strange survival horror games found on the PS2. It has an imminent horror atmosphere that I really enjoyed and a unique gaming hook with its first person controlled by the movement. Although he does not win any game price of the year, I think that Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water should be a must-see game for all survival horror fans, especially with its affordable price.
