oprainfall Review: Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut

oprainfall writes:

“Deadly Premonition, even in its improved Director’s Cut form, will not win any beauty contests. And some parts of it are much more infuriating than they’re worth, especially the endless driving and harsh quick-time events. But this game more than makes up for its last-gen looks and occasional gameplay hiccups by masterfully creating a genuinely creepy atmosphere with an absurdly comic flip side in a vast open world. Under the sometimes ugly facade is a polarizing masterpiece of bizarre niche gaming on par with anything SWERY65′s idol Suda 51 has done.

“If anything, Deadly Premonition is much like York’s beverage of choice. Like a strong coffee, it will leave a terrible taste in some gamers’ mouths, but those looking for a quick pick-me-up should at least give it a try. And then, there are countless others, such as myself, who end up not knowing what they could ever do without it. If you want a game that’s out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate to look at Deadly Premonition with interest. You’ll be surprised.” (Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, PS3) 4/5
