Top 100 Games Reviewer

I imported this game on ps3 about three months ago and though the menus were in Korean I managed to complete the game (the dialogue was in english - phew!)

It's the first open world survival horror which is basically a kinda hybrid of GTA, Silent Hill and Resident Evil. You control Francis Morgan, an FBI agent sent to investigate the murder of a young girl in a town called Greenvale. I don't want to spoil it but I can assure you that this game has a riveting story with lots of twists and turns, weird and eccentric characters and some really entertaining dialogue. It's quite a long game, about 20-25 hours and there are also lots of optional side quests to do along the way.

It's a strange game because even though the graphics aren't the best the game really hooks you in. I can safely say that you have never played a game quite like DP. It's ambitious, witty, smart and scary and though it may not be the best looking game you've ever played it might well be the most memorable.

 A profoundly absurd experience.

I feel compelled to write this review if only for the haters who will inevitably come along and bash the game for being "poor" in so many departments. Whilst their gripes will on the whole be true, in so far, as the graphics are abysmal, the gameplay clunky, the music out of place, the shooting awful and some dialogue which makes the backward talking dwarf from Twin Peaks, seem positively coherent in comparison, but alas none of that matters. It doesn't matter one iota. In the end the sum, is truly greater than the parts. It is not the parts but the inherent relationship they form, the incidental details which propel Deadly Premonition into a stratosphere of atmosphere and story telling often unparalleled in the gaming world. This is Silent Hill's off-beat, absurd, jazzier brother and scary only in so far as you really have no clue what is going on. It is the closest videogames have come to the existential 'theatre of the absurd'.

If the individual parts of the game offer so little enjoyment, then one may ask why play it at all. And the only answer is to experience it. If familiarity breeds contempt in life, then this is the diametric opposite. It's not that Deadly Premonition breaks the rules or conventions in videogames, it's the fact that it makes them obsolete. They cease to matter. It doesn't matter that driving a car is painful because in the context of the game world it somehow relates perfectly. It makes perfect sense. It doesn't matter that the dialogue is at times obtuse and cringe worthy, because once again it somehow succeeds to weave that into its own dysfunctional universe where absurdity reigns supreme. One cannot even compare the dialogue to intentionally bad script as found in 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace' because clearly the dialogue here was all unintentional. It's unintentionally bad, at times just plain wrong to listen to and yet every sentence seems to correlate beautifully with the events happening around you. It is this core synergy of dysfunctionality where Deadly Premonition shines through the most.

If you're looking to 'beat' the game, then this isn't the game to beat. In fact for such an existentially absurd game, the point of 'beating' becomes moot. There is a beginning, a middle and an end. There are chapters to the game, a linear progression of a storyline laced in murder-mystery territory, of guns, of bullets, of enemies, of collectables and death. But to derive a meaning from the game from these components is to miss the incidental details, it's to derive a false image of what the game is. Sometimes in life the bigger picture never really reveals the true picture.

What is Deadly Premonition then? It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. The only question that needs asking from a buyers point of view is if you're prepared to spend the time unlocking it.

 Just awesome

I like a good mystery just like everyone else and I thought this would be just another case of crappy shooter horror.. how wrong was I. The plot is just awesome (in a japanese way so there's a few odd things going on) the gameplay is downright awful in every way and I can't say enough bad things about the gameplay. But after the first 3 or so hours I couldn't stop..

I just kept going and going through the clunky at best gameplay (very very resident evil 2-3-4) sucky graphics and sound design. All and all I found a little gem after my 15 or so hours of gameplay. This game is far from perfect but it reminded me why I play games in the first place and that's the experience and I guarantee this'll be an experience. If you like mysteries and the jap-horror genre this'll be right up your alley. For the price of 24-ish euros I recommend this if you can get through the ps2 era graphs, sound and ancient survival horror gameplay.

The graphics are very last gen, the gameplay is very clunky, and this game should be awful. But I think this game is a work of genius. It's great fun to play and is like an odd mixture of Resident Evil, Silent Hill, GTA and Twin Peaks.....love it!x

 Good old fashioned nostalgic fun!

This game is not slick or high deff. If that's what you are after then don't get it. You'll hate it. But if your like me and miss the days when you would get into playing silent hill 2 for hours or watch the twin peaks box set from start to finish then you might love this. It's strangely hard to put down, the story drives you on to play more. It's so bad it's good... if that makes sense. It's genuinely good fun to play but only buy it knowing that it's like stepping back in time, to an era of gaming that I thought could only be achieved by booting up the old Ps2 or gamecube. To repeat an old chestnut.... it's like marmite, you'll either love it or hate it.
