Storyline

It has been a year since Curtis Craig was released from Greenwood sanitarium, where he has been through hell. All he wishes now is to live quiet, normal life: he has nice girlfriend, place to live and steady job at Wyntech Industries. However, lately it seems that Curtis is losing his sanity... or maybe someone tries to make him believe so: he sees and hears things which cannot be real, he suffers of psychotic episodes, nightmares and flashbacks, and if that was not enough - someone murders his co-workers in manner that only totally sick, psychotic mind could think of. Curtis suspects that Paul Warner, the corrupt and unscrupulous vice-president of Wyntech, is responsible to the current events and to his father's death which occurred many years ago. Unfortunately, both the obnoxious police officer assigned to the case and Curtis' psychiatrist believe he is lunatic, and would not listen to him. With no other alternative, Curtis starts investigating the murders, determined to prove both... Written by Optimus Prime

Trivia

Two complex sequences were scripted for the game, but both ended up cut for different reasons. One would've involved Curtis escaping from the mental hospital and the other would've involved Curtis swimming in a river in the alien world. The game developers lost access to the filming location where the chase sequence was going to be shot, and had no backup, so the scene got cut. The river scene was cut due to space limitations on the fifth disc and was never produced. See more »

Quotes

[the Hecatomb confronts Curtis at the Threshold]
Curtis Craig: [whimpering] Oh, god, I'm so sorry...
The Hecatomb: Are you? Are you sorry that my body is a sickening operation? Are you sorry that I haven't slept for twenty years? I've been awake, Curtis, watching you, building my towers so that I can smash you, destroy you, take you life the way you took mine!
Curtis Craig: It wasn't my fault. I didn't do it to you. I... I'm a victim too.
The Hecatomb: [teasing] Oh, baby... your pain will stop very soon, once your mind and your body will be mine. I ...

Hilarious Bad and Kind of Amazing to Watch
8 March 2016 | by (Maryland, United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't actually played the game, but I have watched a complete let's play done by Noah Antwiler which I strongly recommend.

Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of Flesh is everything that was awful about the FMV era of gaming, but also something you have to see to believe. It's plagued by the issue of old adventure games that it does not give you good (and in some cases any) direction as to what you should be doing or where you're suppose to go in many parts of the game, especially the beginning.

You play as Curtis Craig who works some office job at a pharmaceutical company. He has a girlfriend name Jocelyn, a gay friend named Trevor (who is the best character in the game), office enemy Bob, office whore Therese, hilariously generic evil boss PA Warner (this guy could be a Saturday morning cartoon villain), and Tom your supervisor who is kind of dull but okay.

You are just a normal boring guy with a pet rat and I will give the game credit for starting slow before going off the rails. I won't spoil it for you, but this is a game you would be better off watching Spoony's let play on YouTube than actually play the game since as a game its not well programmed. They did put a lot of work into the FMVs and it has charm as a B movie horror film. If you are interested I think gog.com (Good Old Games) has it for sale for like $5-6.
