Fatal Frame (PlayStation 2) review
"Challenging a player, and challenging them at just the right level, is at the core of any game. For a horror title, however, just challenging the player is not enough; they must be scared, first. There are psychological tricks for this, and Fatal Frame employs them to good effect. At other times, however, shaky aspects of the gameplay make things harder than they need to be, threatening to annoy you more than frighten you. As such, Fatal Frame walks a fine line between fear and frustration. "

Sashanan doesn't drink coffee; he takes tea, my dear. And sometimes writes reviews. His roots lie with the Commodore 64 he grew up with, and his gaming remains fragmented among the very old, the somewhat old, and rarely the new.
