About FATAL FRAME / PROJECT ZERO: Maiden of Black Water

About this game

“FATAL FRAME / PROJECT ZERO: Maiden of Black Water” comes to Steam for the first time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the horror-adventure series FATAL FRAME / PROJECT ZERO.

The Story
Mt. Hikami was once revered as a spiritual place.
It housed a unique religion based on beliefs and customs of worshipping water as a deity and is said to have been a site of many gruesome incidents and mysterious phenomena.
This mysterious and intertwined story follows three protagonists—Yuri Kozukata, Miu Hinasaki, and Ren Hojo—as each of them explores the ominous Mt. Hikami, a place where many came to die, and the secrets it hides.

Gameplay
Players use Camera Obscura, a special camera capable of repelling vengeful ghosts and sealing away their powers, to explore Mt. Hikami and the numerous incidents that took place there in the past.
The story is divided into separate missions, and each mission is led by a new protagonist. The protagonists have a power called Shadow Reading, which allows them to sense the remnants of memories of people who have disappeared on the mountain.
These memories lead the players deeper on secret mountain paths, but what awaits there are malicious spirits that want you to join them in the world of the dead. The only way to fight the spirits off is to capture them with the Camera Obscura. After a spirit is defeated, you can also use the Glance ability to see the final moments of their life.
In addition to sealing the evil spirits that attack you, Camera Obscura can be used to reveal other things that can't be seen with the human eye and will help in the recovery of lost items.
By using the camera and the various abilities, you will be able to unravel the mysteries of the sacred mountain.

Decent horror dragged down by its Wii-console roots

Nachtmahr

It's a good game, a decent horror game, but a bad Fatal Frame. Its main issue is that it was a Wii game in the past, which means that most aspects of the series had to be dumbed down. Pressing the run button makes you run forward automatically, the levels are more linear and tube-formed, the enemies are less lethal and are quite stupid, puzzles are barely puzzles, and all these things together reduce the replay value overall. Still, we FF frans more or less have to buy it because Koei's decision to remaster the old games / release a new game depend on the sales numbers of this remaster.

FF: Maiden of Black Water is 5th game in the serie and it is first one that made it to PC. And even this one is ported from Wii U. Fatal Frame serie is about girls exploring old abandoned places and fighting ghosts using special retro camera. This one leads you to mountain that is being famous as suicide spot and that also has large abandoned temple complex. I have recently played all 5 games in the serie and while I dont think this is best one (that would be FF: Mask of Lunar Eclipse) it is still pretty good game and I enjoyed my time with it. It is different then previous games, instead of saving at selected spots you have regular autosave here. The game isnt one continous experience, instead you are embarking on expeditions from your "base", kinda like in 3rd game, but here you can choose difficulty and equipment for each expedition separately. Also you can return to previous expeditions and try do them on higher diff or with better rating. In the older games I sometime got stuck or didnt know what to do next, that doesnt happen here, but that also comes with less player freedom.
