Fatal Frame 2 on PSN is broken

107 replies 3891 views Edited May 8, 2013

Just to let you know guys, the Fatal Frame 2 PSN release is broken, sound cuts on every cutscene and textures on some walls and floors flicker constantly, and sometimes just dissapear. The worst of all is that these problems are constant and extremely distracting. I hope Sony can provide some fix, because seriously this is so dissapointing.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

This is the first I've heard of an issue with this game, are you sure it couldn't be solved by deleting the game (not save) data, it might be worth a try.

I bought it as well have the same issues. It seems some people that posted in the blog that got it have the same issue as well. The game is emulated and has issues, I hope sony can do something about it. Delete stuff off your drive and doing drive maintenance will not solve these. These issues also show up in the systems that did software emulation with the official game. So yeah I would bypass this game as the issues are detracting from gameplay. Like op said, every cut scene has audio stutter and some objects just do not render well.

Psychonauts also has issue's with the sound not synching on cutscenes. It's probably an issue with the current emulation software,maybe if they updated it then the issue's might dissapear.

I watched the whole game play on you tube...
The asians must be scared easily, because this supposed scariest game looks like a disney cortoon lol...
Was kind of cool but not at all scary... Fear was more scary than this and i fell a sleep during fear....
We really need a scary horror game, movies have even gotten boring....

I'm having the same errors, I wouldn't have wasted my money if I knew there was no quality assurance involved with the publishing of the provided playstation classic.

Yea, I noticed it too when booting up. 

My friends and I have a tradition of getting together and playing through our favorite horror games such as Amnesia, Fatal Frame, SCP, Slender, Slender the Arrival etc etc. 

Fatal Frame the Original played flawlessly, was tons of fun and We all relived a wonderful game.

Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly howvever, immediatley during the first 3 seconds of the cutscenes my friends pointed out echoes and strange sounds (I thought it was part of the game at first)

During the first two chapters the textures especially in the backrooms of the first building flicker, go block and show corruption with a bit of aritifacting. 

I build PC's, I'm a PC/Playstation gamer only and I work fixing PC' issues on my own since I left Geek Squad. I have seen tons of drivers get corrupted. Shaders go bad, Physical cards break down but never have I seen such an erratic amount of quality amongst a game before on hardware/ software that has proven to be perfectly fine and stable. There are things that can go wrong with Emulation that is true. However, the bottom line is that we payed money for a product that should not be suffering from such an obvious overlook. While I do love Fatal Frame series I can not and will not let this slide as a company who prides itself on creating " Quality" games has let this one leave the room a tad bit too early.

 

That being said, submitting reports to Customer service should be what everyone is doing. We payed the money asked and should be getting a quality emulation of a wonderful game end of story
