Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water isn’t a bad game. It offers a thrilling adventure in a creepy version of Japan, filled with ghosts. The story isn’t always easy to follow but the atmosphere is so unique that you don’t need a great story. Capturing ghosts with you GamePad works intuitive but could have used some variation to stay fresh. All in all, it’s not a bad game but it isn’t a triple A Nintendo game. Fans of the franchise will absolutely adore this episode while other players will need to consider if this kind of game is something they would enjoy. If you’re into horror games or games with unique atmospheres, this one is definitely worth checking out.
