Entirely fair to say this is both one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had and one of the worst games I've ever played, simultaneously, throughout the game.

Basically the elevator pitch is that it is essentially Twin Peaks, the video game. You spend a lot of time driving around with the main character talking to himself/imaginary friend about all sorts of nonsense, meanwhile trying to solve a string a murders.

It gets weirder and weirder the further you get down the rabbit hole, but in a captivating way.


However, the gameplay, even by last gen standards was rough. The character is stiff to control, the combat is basic and it feels cheaply made, which it likely was.


That being said, I love this game and it stuck with me more than many other games with far higher production values.


Just be warned it is a bit of a marmite game. My best mate cannot understand for the life of him how I like it. He thinks it is trash, so to each their own
Thanks for that.

Yeah... so it's sort of like incredible in that it's SO bad.
The gameplay swings between awful and unplayable... but it's so awful it's an experience to play.
Also, the story is so outlandish, OTT and downright nuts that you stick with it for the fun factor.

Bits of this game are torturous, but to say more would be to spoil the... erm... "fun"?
Right... So at this point I'm thinking that I'm better off not knowing what I'm missing.
I really feel like I want to play this...
The ultimate polarising game. There’s this (IGN):

”Awful in nearly every way. The Twin Peaks meets Resident Evil with a dash of Grand Theft Auto formula sounds pretty great, but it was well beyond the capabilities of this development team. Terrible controls. Terrible pacing. Terrible sound effects. Terrible visuals."

And this (Destructoid):

“There is absolutely nothing in this industry that can compare to how weird and wonderful the whole experience is. Judged as a piece of entertainment, as a game that consistently surprises and amazes and leaves jaws hanging, I have no choice but to say that Deadly Premonition goes above and beyond. This game is so bad, it's not just become good. It's pretty close to perfect."

Destructoid got it right
