My buddy's timely FIRST impression of Deadly Premonitions

So yeah I had given my buddy way to many half-way decent games to play from his gamefly queue so it was time again to give him what I thought would be a REALLY shitty game. Well, he has recently finished playing it however he had been posting his impressions throughout his time with this game so I will present them here for your reading pleasure.
Also, should you be interested this is a link to his blog.... http://crapasaurusongames.blogspot.c...f74301f21a1877
Deadly Premonitions - Gameplay
Oh, , it's a Japanese game with shitty graphics and shittier controls. Bets on how soon before a tentacle shows up?
For 's sake, it's another one of those "pick up everything because you may need it for a ridiculous puzzle" game. I just crashed my car, I'm being soaked by rain, I just found a freshly mutilated dog, and I follow a phantom into a shack. So what do I do? I pick up a can of pickles. you, Japan!
And now some bent-over backwards, no-eyed ghost person is called a "Mysterious Shadow." It's neither mysterious nor a shadow. !
Jesus, this game keeps getting worse. Not only are there save points, but it seems you get only one save. So if you up (like, say, playing this game) you're ed. And the save point is a pay phone. What the is this, the Matrix?
Fantastic, I just found a lollipop on a filthy, rainy wooden path. Better take that for later. Now I realize that homeless people with those shopping carts full of crap are just playing a Japanese game.
I am the best FBI agent ever. Not only do I have a 9mm FBI custom handgun, but I thrust my badge into everyone's face like I want to punch them with it, even if they already know who I am. Plus, my hotel room in some small town has the biggest bed in the world. It's like a king-and-a-half. A bed worthy of my awesomeness.
And I can change my clothes. I'm surprised there is no schoolgirl outfit.
I am walking around a hotel, entering vacant rooms with impunity, and stealing every can of pickles or package of crackers I can find. At least they make it clear that I'm batshit ing insane.
I love mundane stuff. While there is a shitty driving bit in this game, at least I have turn signals and wipers. This is what I wished GTA IV had!
Holy ing shit. Every street has a name that's only good for the block it's on. A street can be four blocks long, and it will have four names. Once it intersects with another street, it's name changes.
I have a silent but deadly premonition about this game.
I don't know what to make of this game. It's obviously survival horror, but it throws in so much other shit I can't figure out what it was thinking. There's a race for driving a car. And winning gives you money. You can fish, for s sake.
Holy shit, I'm starting to enjoy this game for how bad it is. Maybe it's a mockery of the survival horror genre?
