This disturbing horror game features exceptional sound design and a sinister setting, but its scares are dulled by its repetitive combat. The main gameplay conceit is a good one; you use the Game Pad as a supernatural camera that can exorcise spirits with each successful snap. However, the controls of the main character aren’t nearly as inventive or precise.
