So, I picked this game up when I saw it on special for $20 and to put off the game I just bought The Hitman 2 as long as possible. Anyway, I'm enjoying this game a lot. It's not incredibly hard or anything, but it's also not mind numbingly easy ... at least not yet. So, far so good anyway. I'm really not sure about the storyline though, but hell it's keeping me busy, right?
Did you play part 1? If not, the story might be a bit confusing. 3, unlike 2, is a direct sequel. My advice would be to play with combat on either normal or hard, depending on how much you like the RE/SH combat system, but puzzles MUST be on hard difficulty to pose any challenge.
It doesn't replace 2 as my favorite in the series, but maybe I'm just getting harder to spook.
Has anyone played Fatal Frame 2 yet? I thought the first one was scary as hell, but hated the engine (super slow walking and limited view with the camera). How about Clock Tower 3? Again, loved the story and atmosphere of part 1, hated the gameplay.
i picked this game up when it first came out, without any prior knowledge or experience with the silent hill franchise. i liked resident evil 1 and 2, so i figured this was worth a shot. the best part by far has to be the soundtrack.. really creepy stuff. the monsters are so-so but astrobstrd is right, it's a lot more challenging and the inevitability of the game is turned up a notch when the puzzles are on the 'hard' setting.
I think it's the worst of the series, with 2 being by far the best. I didn't find 3 scary until the VERY end (last area you go to). 2 was extremely creepy the whole way through. 1 is too outdated to be scared by, but it's still a great game. The story for 3 is ok, but I just didn't think it held up to 2.
