| Almost equal with the first game
Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of the first game and this game doesn't pass the original. They are both equal in terms of gameplay, scariness, and story. Fatal Frame improves on the camera a little bit. The camera being your main weapon just like in the first game.

Like I said before this game has an excellent story and acts as a prequel to the first game. You play as two twins. Well you only get to control one of them while the other follows you. While playing the first game there was some ghost that creeped me out. This game hasn't had that effect yet, but I have jumped at a few parts.

The first game had four long nights. This game has eight short chapters as far as I can tell. It doesn't matter though this game is still great. The scenery and graphics are some the most beautiful I've seen in a game. Especially the opening cut scene in the forest. This game passed my expectations and then some. It doesn't let the original down.

The gameplay is a little easier. The ghost don't attack as hard as they did in the first. The puzzles are not as hard. In fact I've hardly encountered any puzzles 7 chapters into the game. I've had to do 3 puzzles so far.

Maybe if there is future games this series could grow to be a successful horror game series.
