Features
The Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir game invites players to experience supernatural thrills they won't soon forget, using the built-in camera functions and augmented-reality features of the Nintendo 3DS system. The game's mysterious storyline involves a girl named Maya who has been hiding in the darkness of an old house, cursed by a malevolent woman in black. To free Maya from the curse, players must use the "diary of faces" - a 16-page AR notebook included with the game - to view ghostly images and interact with the world Maya is trapped in. The Nintendo 3DS system becomes the Camera Obscura in players' hands and is capable of revealing the supernatural and dispelling evil spirits. The lines between reality and fiction blur in this chilling horror adventure.

Features

The included "diary of faces" is a gateway into the game's absorbing Story Mode. When viewed through the lenses of the Nintendo 3DS camera, each page of the book displays a variety of augmented-reality experiences.

Some pages of the book come to life in the form of video segments that reveal past events and shed light on the game's central mysterious storyline. Others appear to send spirits floating into players' real-world surroundings. Some page even summons players to virtually enter a haunted house where Maya is hiding.

Additional modes let players use the system's camera in spooky ways. In Spirit Photography, they can take photos at their leisure and watch as haunting visions appear within the pictures. Spirit Check, lets them snap pictures of themselves and their friends to uncover the eerie spirits that surround them. In Spirit Challenge, they can put their own face or a friend's face on a spirit and then battle it.

Players can also use the notebook with their Nintendo 3DS system to face other challenges involving a mix of memory, hide-and-seek and other game play elements all with a supernatural twist.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's..something.

Pros: Fun diary gimmick. Has a slew of bonus features such as a mock 'ghost photo' creator.

Cons: Barely a few hours long. Demands you play the 'horror' game in bright lighting for the AR. AR Scan failures can and will continuously break any immersion you manage to get. Even without any expectations the game will disappoint you.

Other Thoughts: It's less of a game and more of an 'experience'. But not necessarily one you'll be glad you had. In order to get any satisfaction out of the title you'll have to throw out any expectations you'd have for a Fatal Frame game (hence the re-title), and of it being a game at all, and compare it to other horror 'experiences' like going through a Haunted House in an amusement park. It's campy and childish but fun while it lasted, short as that was. Ultimately it's a very flawed game, it demands you play the game in bright lighting (very, for it to scan the journal pages) which really breaks the 'horror' atmosphere it's going for. The gameplay consists of spinning in circles in your room broken up by segments of short mini games, bosses, and a few on-rail segments where you explore hallways reminiscent of a real Fatal Frame game, which only serves to disappoint once you're booted back into the 'game' proper, a tease or sour taste of what the game actually could have been like without Nintendo's involvement. If you can put all that aside, Spirit Camera can make for an amusing night. 2.5/5, but I couldn't honestly round it up to a 3. PLAYING IN THE DARK WITH A DESK LAMP ON THE JOURNAL HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
