The media reported that the famous novelist Junsei Takamine disappeared while gathering research for an upcoming novel. Mafuyu, an aspiring journalist, suspected that something was wrong. Why would his mentor simply vanish into thin air? Mafuyu decided to conduct a private search for his friend, with the investigation eventually leading to the grounds of a secluded mansion.
The Himuro Mansion stands silent and imposing deep within the forest. It's said that years ago the mansion belonged to a powerful landowner who had absolute control over the area. But now it's a shadow of its former self, dilapidated and desolate As Mafuyu searched the mansion, he found scraps of paper left by Junsei and his staff throughout the mansion.
The writings recounted a number of ominous events that happened in the mansion's dark past. Eager to find additional clues within the mansion, Mafuyu rushed in and suddenly realized that he wasn't alone Miku came to the Himuro mansion in search of her missing brother. But she had no idea what she was getting into After her father died on an archaeological expedition, and her mother, Miyuki Hinasakisoon after committed suicide, it's just been Miku and her brother, Mafuyu. The two siblings are very close, both sharing a sixth sense that they keep secret from others, so when Mafuyu doesn't come back after nine days of following his mentor into the 'haunted' Himuro MansionMiku goes after him.
In the Japanese version of the game, Miku is listed as being seventeen years old. Mafuyu, twenty-one years old, is the elder brother of Miku and an aspiring novelist. Like Miku, he possesses a strong sixth sense. Since his parents died, Mafuyu has been taking care of his sister.
Upon hearing that his mentor hasn't returned from doing research at the 'haunted' Himuro Mansion, Mafuyu himself goes to investigate, taking with him a special camera his mother left to him and Miku, and mysteriously disappears. This caused a huge debate—that continues to this day—over what events if any in the game are actually factual. Jump to: navigationsearch.

This page was last modified on 17 Octoberat If you've found Capcom's Resident Evil series to be less than horrifying as of late, Tecmo has an alternative up their sleeve that they hope will put the bumps back on your goose.
Fatal Frame follows the adventures of Miku, a young lady trying to find her missing journalist brother who went off to investigate the Blair Witch-y disappearance of a writer researching the old Himura Mansion. Will these young people never learn? Naturally the house is haunted by hordes of tortured souls, but Miku can blow them back into the ether by using her mother's special camera as a weapon. Miku can recharge her camera by finding extra-powerful rolls of film scattered around the mansion.
Fans of Silent Hill 2 's Se7en-esque graphics will delight in the similarity of Fatal Frame's aesthetics. Taking a cue from the Blair Witch Project, Fatal Frame puts you in the shoes of a shaky teen whose only protection from predatory specters is an old-fashioned camera. Piecemeal storytelling through note scraps, journals, audio tapes and news clippings scattered throughout an exquisite Japanese mansion also helps establish an ominous foreboding in the game.
Some weaknesses, though, will keep it from being on the top of your horror hit list. But those who find pleasure in scaring themselves pantless will have better luck watching Richard Simmons Farewell to Fat infomercials at 3 a.
Its dark but sharp graphics, excellent sound effects used both to scare you and as unique audio clues and sudden surprises create a wonderfully dreadful overall mood right from the start. Unfortunately, the puzzles are pretty generic, and I never could get into the photo-combat despite the different options and abilities. Still, a great late-night rental if you have the patience.
An unheralded entry into the survival-horror genre, Fatal Frame performs admirably, with a unique premise, solid control and excellent Sezen-esque presentation. Sure, taking pictures of the dead to destroy them is kind of goofy, but powering up your camera with various enhancements makes you feel like a photographic badass. The enemies are tougher and more frequent in the brutal second half, but I still enjoyed every thrilling moment.

Overall rating: 6. Playstation 2. People say: 7.Fatal Frame. There are some differences in the more recent X-Box version; the Finder looks different and there are different Bonuses to unlock, for one thing. I don't know if the story or game play is any different, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of this file if you are playing on the X-Box. First, I think this is an engrossing and terrifying game that deserves a proud place among the other games of its genre.
Without relying on goriness or the 'gross-out', Fatal Frame delivers plenty of scares and is just as unnerving to play as Silent Hill or Resident Evil. The storyline is intriguing and draws you inexoribly along as the game progresses. The music and sounds are eerie and perfectly suited to intensifying the frightening atmosphere. One of my favorite things about this game is the Japanese style and setting; the old mansion is a welcome relief from the 'facility' locale that so many other survival-horror games force you to manage.
Cute little Miku, the intrepid and brave girl who explores the mansion, is another perk! The biggest flaws in this game are the terrible voice-acting an endemic flaw found in most games and, unfortunately, the uninspired and repetitive puzzles. Despite these drawbacks, Fatal Frame is still a solid, well-made game that is interesting and fun! The second reason I wrote this walkthrough is to provide thorough and complete information about the game for the novice and veteran alike.
The Walkthrough portion takes you through the game room by room, and includes information on finding all the items and capturing all the ghosts in the game. I've also included some sections detailing the mechanics of the game and offering some survival strategies. At the end of this file there is a section describing all the Special Features that become available to those who have finished the game but still have an appetite for more; Fatal Frame has a lot of extras that make replaying the game worthwile.
Finally, there's the Ghost List, a built-in menu that you can unlock by defeating the game. There's no information here about the controls, since there are 8 different controller settings and you may not use the same configuration as I do.
There's no section about the characters, story, etc, either; you will learn all about them as you play the game and, in my opinion, is the basically the whole point of playing. In the Walkthrough, I won't describe in detail what you see in the cutscenes or paraphrase the dialogue; I feel it's best to let the game speak for itself.

During her exploration of the mansion, she discovers clues as to the fate of those who entered, must fight hostile ghosts, and discover the truth behind a dark ritual that took place there.
The gameplay focuses on the siblings exploring the mansion, and fighting off hostile ghosts using a special camera. Development began after the PlayStation 2 hardware was introduced to Tecmo, using the codename " Project Zero ". The concept was created by Makoto Shibata based on his own spiritual experiences.
Together with producer Keisuke Kikuchi, Shibata worked on creating the scariest gaming experience possible. Multiple aspects of its style and production were influenced by this development wish. First announced in under its working title, it was eventually announced for release in Western territories a month after its Japanese release, where it was marketed as being based on a true story.
The game received generally positive reviews, while the port drew praise for its improved visuals. As offour more games in the Fatal Frame series have been released. The player controls Miku Hinasaki for the majority of the game, with its opening featuring Miku's brother Mafuyu as the player character. Each part of the mansion includes a map of its layout, and each level is rendered in real-time instead of using pre-rendered backgrounds.
Environments are invariably dark, with exploration being possible through the use of a flashlight. During exploration, various items can be found scattered through environments: these include documents and cassette recordings expanding on elements of the story, health items, and other objects.
In some areas, the main character must also solve puzzles to progress. Progress is saved at savepoints through the mansion, and at the end of each chapter. Hostile ghosts can only be fought using the Camera Obscura, an antique camera that can capture ghosts. Ghosts in environments are sensed using a character's "sixth sense", and will drain a character's health on contact. When using the Camera, the view switches to a first-person view: the Camera Obscura is moved with the right analog stick on a controller, while the character can be moved with the left stick while maintaining a view through the Camera.
Holding a ghost in view enables greater damage, but ghosts fade in and out of view as they approach.
