Cthulhu Called, Fatal Frame Tormented

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is finally out, and the reviewers seem to like what they see. Fatal Frame 3 is also out, but is so far fairing a little worse (though there are still very few reviews–I’ll update the world score here when there are at least 10). Both look like awesome games to me.

I’m struggling to come up with the motivation to finish Kuon. Forcing you to play as two people is fine, but what is the point if the game is exactly the same the second time around?

  1. I really don’t see the point of playing something a second time around if all it does is change your appearence and maybe a slight variation of location. It’s just a lazy way of developers to get away with the whole “value for money” idea. Stop making different characters re-treads and make them have a different side-lined adventure.

    The only time I’ve seen this really work is RE2. The plots for Leon and Claire are completely different (Leon A/Claire B and Claire A/Leon B). It totally gives you incentive to carry on and choose what you thnk is the proper storyline…something Outbreak and Dead Aim failed to do. I’m not even going to start on Seperate Ways for RE4 or even AITD4.

  2. There are differances in the additional runs through the game. They are just in the same places. But hey, it’s a very short game, so just buckle down and do it and it’ll be over. =)

    And so far I’m really liking FF3. If you like the first two, you’ll like this one. It’s got a different MO than the first two that is a nice change.

  3. I finished Kuon in two nights. I enjoyed it even though the two stories were mostly the same until the end. In my opinion it was worth it.
