Ever since the first episode was released back in 2001, the Fatal Frame series has been known as one of the spookiest survival horror games out there. We were then pretty eager to discover Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, a new exclusive on Wii U. As usual, you'll find the translated verdict and +/- section inside, along with 6 direct feed videos. For the full review, head over to the French side.
Although it is obviously less known than the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill, Fatal Frame is still a reference of the survival horror genre despite some shortcomings in the controls. Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is faithful to the series' roots so it certainly won't appeal to everyone but it will definitely satisfy those looking for a good scare. The main story may not be that incredible but it is interesting enough to make this new episode worth playing. Let us not forget that the Japanese horror genre is pretty unique and that the games which pay tribute to it are now pretty scarce. One more reason to give Maiden of Black Water a try if you own a Wii U.

+ Top sound design

I'm waiting for them to complete the project. I'm going to be waiting for a while. (3 Hours ago)
finally going sideways and further than the episodes/end movie. The lore was and still is incredible. A single frame is a new item to explore and learn. Evangelion really is the dark souls of anime. (3 Hours ago)
Just saw Evangelion 3.33. I don't hate as much other, i'm just a little indifferent to the scenes as they aren't taht much interesting but they play a big part at doing a new telling of the mythos and (3 Hours ago)
