Mafuyu, a young man who idolizes an author of horror novels, goes on a search for the writer and his assistants when it's reported that they disappeared while exploring an old mansion and shinto shrine in the Japanese countryside for authorial inspiration. However, Mafuyu doesn't have the chance to search for too long before he himself disappears. Miku, his younger sister, follows Mafuyu's path to the mansion in order to find him, but all she can find of him is the family's antique camera. To her dismay, she also discovers that the mansion is populated with ghosts, but her camera somehow has the power to fight them. As Miku goes further into the mansion, she slowly discovers that the mansion and shrine share a horrific past that her family may have a connection with. Frightened but determined, Miku must brave the horrors of the mansion and find her brother before she becomes the next victim. Written by Anonymous

A must have for PS2 owners
21 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Can't say it enough - by far one of the best of the genre I have played. The sequel (crimson butterfly) reminded me too much of a Resident Evil knockoff to hold my attention, but I plan on getting a copy of this earlier one to own.

Everything was done perfectly *except* the dubbing (hopefully game developers will follow the subtitling trend demanded by fans of anime, allowing both). Plenty of replay value w/ the special features.

The game is kind of hard to find b/c it's out of print presently and that's a damn shame - definitely as worthy of rerelease as, say, castlevania symphony of the night.

Also, I have to say that the avatar for the main character Miku

was one of the best I've played with - very lifelike, especially compared to other games in this genre.
