"Upon hearing that we were in store for another AR-driven experience, a part of me resisted the idea; which part exactly, I'm not sure, but I guess there's some bitterness over past experiences I didn't even know existed. With all due respect to titles that have pulled this off, it was only after witnessing The Hidden's unsettling execution that I became extra cautious about how this functionality would be used in the future. Consequently, it was as if I was already put off by the very notion of another team using AR as a footstool towards something original." -- (3DS, The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave) 77/100

Author says: "To allow for lighting discomfort or just a plain insensitivity to the whole idea of this method of navigation, players who may be more reserved can actually keep this as a strictly virtual simulation by pressing the X Button, giving the space a patterned background that is uninfluenced by real-world images."

In actuality, this has nothing to whatsoever to do with what the author suggests. This is a Japanese game that was originally published for Japanese people. The Japanese hate to be photographed by strangers. The "manner mode" (it is even labelled as such in this game) was designed solely so the Japanese could search for Denpa Men without photographing strangers.

Interesting cultural and gaming issue...
