Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut Review | Tech-Gaming

Players preoccupied with aesthetics and polished play mechanics are bound to question the appeal of Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut. However, those who can look past the game’s decidedly stilted animations, incongruous music, and uneven graphical exhibition, are likely to find of the most striking curios in contemporary gaming. Far removed from the typical twitch-based action of most survival horror games, Premonition is propelled by captivating idiosyncrasy. Long after players have witnesses the closing cinematic, another, more taunting, mystery awaits: determining how much of the game’s quirkiness is wholly intentional. (Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, PS3) 72/100

I'm trying really hard to like this game-- I've been playing a bit every day. I love the characters and can easily get past the visuals; my biggest problem with the game so far is that gameplay-wise it's a chore. It's just not fun to do much of anything in the world. Shooting, driving, load times when peeking in windows-- every single thing you do is sluggish. I can see the charm and brilliance in the title though, so here's to maybe falling in sync with it.

Great review by the way.
