Excellent story and characters, though not without its flaws. Most people think this game's main appeal is that it's "so bad it's good", but honestly it's the fact that its really easy to get emotionally invested in the weird cast of characters. That's not to say that hilariously bad elements are completely absent, but they're absolutely not the reason people like this game.
Deadly Premonition is a guilty pleasure type of game. The graphics hurt the eyes, models and animations of the characters are joke, gameplay and gunplay is a tragedy, sound effects of shots and explosions sound like a mosquito flying by. Does this sound like an interesting game? However, there is this undescribed fun factor that makes the whole experience entertaining giving this game cult of followers. Mostly Twin Peaks fans that this title is heavily based on. It's difficult to recommend this title because most people will walk away with disgust but if you find it really cheap try it out, on the worst case you will lose a buck or two but perhaps you will fall in love with this "gem"
This is most loved and most hated game you will ever play.Open world horror mystery with dose of surreal and with some dark comedy with cool protagonist. Graphics are straight PS 2 graphics some people will be out in the moment they see it if you don't care about that you are good to go. Gameplay is kinda repetitive killing shadows can be boring sometimes. Story is super ultra awesome weird and it will keep you guessing till the end. If you love Resident Evil or Silent Hill this if for you. If you love weird and strange this is for you. If you love Twin Peaks this is closest you will get in game form.
Deadly Premonition is one of those games you either love it or hate it. There is no in between. If you like to tell you a good story, then let yourself be carried away by this jewel. His argument is wasting genius by all sides, with unexpected twists, good secondary characters and serious moments (and other not so much) that make you immerse fast in the game. Another plus is the main character, Francis York Morgan, that will be etched in our memory by his personality and the great interpretation of the character. As there are many negative point. The gameplay is quite rough and may cause you to lose the nerves to more than one. The driving of vehicles is frustrating and our characters cannot move while used firearms. As for the sound, the SFX do not become all good, on the whole of our enemies, that detracts from true "charm" terror which can cause. Although the course of river and the rain are well made. As for the soundtrack, just great, with big themes that accompany the course of history (although some are repeated enough) and a main theme wonderful. Graphically is pretty bad. You do not have graphical options, the port to a PC leaves much to be desired, some other bug and crashes throughout the adventure. Therefore, if can survive to their large defects, but you like greats stories. Buy it.
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.
