DHGF: Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is a fun game in spite of its shallow gameplay. Story Mode is about two and a half hours long, but with all the mini games, Extra Mode and the post-game boss battles, hardcore Fatal Frame or survival horror fans can probably wrangle ten hours out of the cart before they’ve done all there possibly is to do with it. It’s not a very scary game, but it is an atmospheric and creepy one that makes use of the 3DS’ AR capabilities and 3D visuals. I can’t recommend the game for $40 however, as it feels like a tech demo more than a full game. As well, the AR book, while a neat idea, is too easily damaged and without it, the game is literally unplayable. The end product is a neat one, albeit it a niche one. I’m thankful that SOME Fatal Frame game finally made it stateside since the Nintendo exclusivity agreement, but I’d still rather have had Fatal Frame 4 or the upcoming Crimson Butterfly Wii Edition brought to North America instead.
