Did You Know?


Certain locations in the game are replicated from their appearances in the previous games in the series, Fatal Frame and Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. A prime example is during Hour IV, when Miku explores areas of the mansion from the original Fatal Frame. She finds a Camera Obscura in the same spot from the original game, as well as the stone marker puzzle a couple of rooms further in. See more »


In the beginning of the game, a flashback of Rei surviving the car crash is shown. However, as Rei is shown getting up from being thrown from the car and approaching her deceased boyfriend Yuu in the wreck, she and Yuu - whose head is resting on broken glass - haven't a single inch of blood or damage on them.

An intense story driven game
30 April 2006 | by PlayerSSSee all my reviews

First let me start off by saying that I love the Fatal Frame series. It's one of the best survival horror series in my opinion. There's hardly anything bad I can think of to say about the series.

The third game follows the same basic structure of the last two games. You fight ghost with a camera. There's not been much of an upgrade from the past two games in terms of game play. Which may aggravate some veteran Fatal Frame players.

The story is of a young woman named Rei Kurosawa who lost her boyfriend some time ago and is a freelance photographer. She currently is now trying to solve the mystery of the cursed tattoo and the manor of sleep. The story is as always beautifully crafted and finishes out the trilogy on the PS2 with a bang.

You'll be going back and forth in between a "dream manor" and the waking world. Which is Rei's apartment. The transition is done very nicely and pulled off in such a way that it doesn't take away from the story.

There are two other characters in this game. Kei Amakura and Miku Hinisaka from the first game. They serve their purpose well as this game eventually ties into the past two games. You'll actually be seeing a lot of Miku.

The graphics are the best they've ever been in this game. The locations look great as does the characters. The voice acting is great, but the characters do sound like they're talking in a hole sometimes. The sound for all the ghost is great and intense.

I wouldn't say this is the scariest out of the three as anyone who has played the past two games will likely be desensitized to the whole ghost fighting formula of the series. That still doesn't take away from the game in my opinion. It holds its own.

A few words to sum up the whole game is it's a beautiful intense game. I recommend the whole series for anyone who is into survival horror and looking for a deep psychological game.
