|If we take a look at 2010 released games, We see a title that even though nobody expected anything from this but it could surprise many gamers. A pretty ambitious title which is called "Deadly Premonition".
Storyline is on a good quality. Existence of varied and mysterious characters, Taking place weird happenings and lot's of other mysterious thing through the story makes you a lot of questions that usually are hard to guess their answers. There is also a good narrating of story through the game in two forms, Profiling and Reviewing story. Usually after passing some missions "Francis" will review a summary of story with "Zach".
Controlling the game has several problems. Gameplay's animations are so poor and it makes some problems during the game for you, Specially in chasing scenes that gets you into trouble. Shooting system isn't so good and might take a long time for you to get used of it. Cold weapons seems pretty useless except in some scenes. You should drive near 40% of the game, Regard to different problems it has it's not so gracious and pleasurable. The story sometimes will put on the crime scenes and you should find the clues. By finding any clue a option (Profiling) will be appear that you can review found clues to find out their connection with use of this option.
The gameplay also has some marginal features such as shaving, Taking bath, Washing your clothes, Gassing, etc. There are different collectable things on the map you can take care of them. Generally the gameplay has lot's of defects and different bugs but it's still tolerable.
In comparison with other similar games with the same release time, The game has a weak graphic. It's even comparable with some games belonged to the previous generation! Textures are on a bad quality, Lighting is poor, Environment colors seem pretty awful and so on. All of the factors say we face a poor graphic.
Sound has some technical defects. Sound of environment and objects made badly. In almost most of the scenes voice of characters don't fit their lips' movements. Even in some shots you can't see any voice and there is only subtitles to find out the conversations. Musics match the game's atmosphere and are on an acceptable level, But there are only a few tracks in the game and in some scenes they don't fit the subject.
DP has a good potential, good selling and positive views of some reviewers show that but it really needed a better investment and much time to spend on making this game. There are lot's of defects in the games and they sometimes become so annoying but the game has a rich story, though.
