Deadly Premonition is one of the most impressive games ever released

SA writes: "With it's atrocious visuals, derivative shooting, questionable driving controls, and other features that caused most people to skip it, Deadly Premonition received mixed reactions upon release, with a majority of critics giving it either mediocre or negative reviews.

However, when information about the titles bizarre subject matter and self aware sense of humor came out, people with an eye for the eccentric gave it a shot, plenty loved it, and spread the word throughout the community and turned the apparently average Deadly Premonition into a cult hit. I'll just be blunt; this is my favorite game of the seventh console generation, and one of my top three favorite games. No, I'm deadly serious."

i heard it was pretty bad, terrible voice acting and pretty bad game mechanics, aswell as graphics. that's why I've steered away from it and not got it

The extreme opposite of the Crysis franchise proves that graphics and explosions are not enough.

Playing through it as we speak. Damn Yorke is obsessed with coffee and random 80's film references. Absolutely loving it.

I truly feel York is one of the best protagonists to be found in a game.

One of the greatest games of last-gen

I've spent more money buying all the versions of this game than I have on any triple A game. Deadly Premonition is amazing.

Love this game! This game WAS supposed to be on the PS2 but it got held up in development limbo forever. Glad it made it out.

Love campy horror games. IMO Resident Evil 1 was awesome for its campy horror but Deadly Premonition takes the cake lol.

Deadly Premoition was awful if you put it under the "standard definition" of what a game needs to be successful.

I still love it endlessly, it's just one of those games that excels in so many other elements it's a must play.

I agree. It's certainly not the 10/10 game that Destructoid said it is, but that doesn't mean the game isn't fun as hell. Definitely one of my favorite experiences of the last gen.
