If you are ok to overcome technical issues with some digging into the game files, setting configuration files and applying custom fixes, it's worth a try. Don't be scared by the clunky and repetitive gameplay but enjoy the lore the developers have built into a clearly Twin Peaks inspired story... with a twist. More than one, actually. It has to be taken for the story and the world building more than else. Game is also relatively long, especially if you fill your experience with the secondary stuff. You'll have time to get attached to the characters and experience the super-weird atmosphere of the whole thing.
If I had to make a list with my top 10 games ever, Deadly Premonition would be there for sure. Deadly Premonition is actually a bad game, if you stick to gameplay elements, but it has so much indescribable charisma and personality there is no way you will forget this game. You hate it or you love it. The less you know the better. Storyline is incredible, characters are perfect and the scenario is unbeatable. I spend my time in this lovely town as if I was on vacation. I got into the game so deep I couldn't think of anything else for some days. There is an unique atmosphere in this game and you can feel it the moment you press start. I don't want to end this review without letting you know that this is one of those console ports terribly made, and you'll probably have to deal with lots of issues and files made by the community to made this playable. Actually, I spend the first 4 or 5 hours trying to set the game properly. Believe me, all that effort is worth it.
If you like campy tv shows, this game is for you. If you don't mind controls that take a hour to get down, this game is for you. If you always wanted to see what Silent Hill and Twin Peaks game would look like, this game is for you I like to consider Deadly Premonition the Rocky 4 of video games. There are more polished and approachable games (consider Silent Hill to be Rocky I) but few games match the silliness and fun that the over the top nature makes it in some ways much more enjoyable. Yes, there is tons of flaws with this game. Navigation is poor, fighting enemies becomes monotonous, voice acting and the way character models move is ugly but if you ask the cult following this game has achieved, they wouldn't have it any other way. The over the top nature of everything keeps you entertained through out. Zombies(?) that limbo are present through out the story arc and will have you laughing more times then once. But it does have qualities that makes this a great game besides laughing with the designers. The main characters are really well put together and all become likable at one point in the story. The story is basically a cop drama set in a similar setting Twin Peaks took place which to my knowledge hasn't been done much besides Alan Wake.Side missions are littered throughout and while most are mediocre at best, they give you items that are a HUGE help. This is one of the few games I 100% beat and I'll still come back to it. If Deadly Premonition was made any other way it would fade into obscurity but it came out just right. This game is imperfectly perfect. This particular port however. isn't that well made. Theres performance issues and crashes here and now but I didn't find it too distracting. That shouldn't be a deal breaker for a potential purchase though. Fan made patched exist that make it much more stable. My best advice for anyone on the fence is to watch some gameplay and cutscenes (DO NOT WATCH ANYTHING NEAR THE ENDING!) and decide for yourself. The PS3 version would be a 90 in my opinion but the PC vanilla version loses points for not having all the bugs worked out before launch and not having more additions to the game seeing as it is a "Director's Cut". Still worth the money if you never played it.
Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut is an interesting game, to say the least. There is a reason people often say it is "so bad it is good", and once you start playing you realize why it is known as such. Most of the game's soundtrack is pretty good, although some tracks do not really fit the moments they are used in. The game's plot is great. It follows FBI agent Francis York Morgan investigating a criminal case in a small town called "Greenvale". While it seems like a rather unusual murder at first, York realizes it might be tied to some other cases he has solved and there could be a link to the supernatural as well. Gameplay could be better. Combat feels stiff at times and it could be compared to Resident Evil 4's. There are 50 side quests which give some rather gamebreaking rewards. The idea of an open world horror-game detective story is kind of well executed, but it could have been done better. The game's strongest points are basically its quirky characters and interesting setting, as well as its surprisingly well written dialogue. I recommend buying this game on sale. Keep in mind that while it has little to no graphical options, there is a fan-made patch that lets you play in 1080p. There are also some crashes here and there
Deadly Premonition is a paranormal thriller that is one part GTA, two parts Twin Peaks, and all “is this really how Japan views America”? Deadly Premonition takes place in a seemingly quaint little mountain village where you are visiting trying to solve a murder case that, by the end of the game, will have more plot twists than a Shyamalan film. The story is so out there you will stick with it just to see where it goes due to it being unlike anything else you have ever seen. The controls, while unusual, are not bad and decent when you get used to them. Part of Deadly Premonition’s charm is how unusual and out there it is. It is a strange game worthy of cult status.
