Today I'm here to review a PS2 game that I had wanted to play for almost 3 years!
This game is... 'Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly'. The original 2004 release for PS2.
(To be honest, I've never even thought about playing the Wii version, they changed too much)
I only managed to get hold of this game in February this year...
And it was a birthday present from my lovely boyfriend Jamie because I turned 16 xD
I've had it since February but I only sat down to play it properly the other day~
(It was his way of saying 'here's a game you're old enough to play' haha)
This game is a survival horror game, originally from Japan,
It's set in Japan with Japanese character, etc. And focuses heavily around Shinto rituals.
Your enemies in this game are... Ghosts!
(Those of you familiar with the 'Project Zero' series will know)
I have to admit, I've been steadily playing through the first 'Project Zero' game for the past 2 years...
It's taking me a really long time to do because I find it's just very, very repetitive.
But, I've actually completely played through this game (I finished it the other day)
And it only took around 11 hours to complete (not continuously), so it wasn't a relatively long game.
However, whilst it wasn't overly long, a lot was packed into this game to keep it interesting.
I feel that is where 'Project Zero II' surpasses the first game in the series. There's a lot to do.
Very little repetition is used in this game, compared to the first 'Project Zero'. So that's good.
Now, on to the review itself~
|Sae will be Sae, I guess... Aw look, isn't she happy?|
To give a general idea of the kinds of ghosts you'll be fighting in this game, I'll give some information:
Please note that in this game, there are ghosts relevant to the story, which include the ghosts mentioned above, and also random ghosts that are there either; just to scare you and won't even fight you, they show you the direction to go or help to unlock doors, etc. and also hostile ghosts that are there plainly to fight you and try to kill you. So, it's not just the types of ghosts that are relevant to the story. There's lots of different types of ghosts for you to exorcise. For example:
This woman is actually somewhat related to the storyline, so she's more powerful than random ghosts...
