Playing as special agent Francis York Morgan (call him York – everyone else does), it’s your job to investigate the brutal murder of a young local beauty in the town of Greenvale. Amidst the backdrop of soaring mountains and a small American suburb, York must solve the mystery of the Red Seed Murders and stay alive in a place where supernatural creatures and a mysterious raincoat-clad, axe-wielding killer seek to end his investigation for good.
Part suspense-filled horror, part action-adventure game, Deadly Premonition offers an open-world experience packed with locals to meet and places to discover, as well as numerous side quests and mini-games that will help you solve the murders and uncover Greenvale’s deepest, darkest secrets.

When this title first released on pc it had A LOT of problems. Many of them have been addressed. You can now use a controller. You don't have to hit "alt" twice to unfreeze loading screens and more.
Even with all the fixes the game has inherent issues in design. Everything outside of the story is clunky. The combat, qte parts, inventory, map, driving and more....you've either seenread more same ideas executed in other games or seen it done much better. BUT this game has something going for it you'd be hard-pressed to find in other games. An incredibly diverse and interesting cast, a wonderful suspense/thriller story that'll have you on the edge of your seat constantly, and an atmosphere that's very reminiscent of "Twin Peaks." Although this game wears its influence on its sleeve the story is different enough so it's not a ripoff. I think this game is worth the price of admission for fans of twin peaks. For others, if you don't mind slogging through some repititive and uninspired combat the story alone will deliver a fun experience.
I give it 8.25.
If the story and cast weren't so darn good it would be a 6.

While playing this one must ask, wherther the developers deliberately want the PC community to hate this game.
No native HD resolution (fixed by Durante 1 day after release), no Gamepad support, jaggy edges and texture shimmering beyond belief, crashes galore (usually means losing 30 minutes or more or playtime).
The game even crashes while loading the save file, and since you haveread more only one file to save on, this can mean that you have to start over the whole game, just because it will not load your game at all without crashing.
The list could go on forever, I don't know what the developers, especially the Q&A people were thinking while greenlighting this. It's a completely broken product as of now. Very annoying stuff.
You'd do best to avoid this, untill at least the most game breaking glitches are patched, or you'll most probably end up as frustrated as I am, since underneath it all lies a very interesting and unique game, which is definitely worth playing.
Think Twin Peaks with a Japanese twist for the obscure.
I didn't heed the warnings and bought this early.
Don't make the same mistake!
Wait for someone to fix this first, since as of now, this game is next to unplayable and should not have been released in this state.

DISCLAIMER: I played the original version on the Xbox 360.
My suspicion is that this game was made by aliens that, at some point, watched an episode of Twin Peaks and decided that is how normal human beings behave. Needless to say, this game is weird. For the first quarter of the game, it is incredibly difficult to tell if the main character is just eccentric, or absolutely insane.read more Not that it matters since everyone else appears to be off a bit as well.
This game can be described as a combination of Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Parasite Eve, with Parasite Eve taking the bulk award for inspiring the gameplay, and Resident Evil for the uncanny feel. The mood is very Silent Hill like at times.
To be honest, this game is as much of an experience as it is a game. The DC version does not appear to have a difficulty selection option, so it apparently either defaults to normal or easy. I have no idea why this is so. Having played on Hard, I can definitely say that the game seems much easier when I watched this game streamed.
It does get tedious at times and the animation and graphics quality is pretty bad. Still, the game has a personality, and is at the very least intriguing. The controls on the consoles were pretty bad. I don't know if they are better for the keyboard.
