I'm a bit upset to hear that one scene got censored, it wasn't even anything that bad. Overall, good game.
Reviewed in the United States on 3 January 2021
First and foremost, this is a horror game, but it’s not an action-adventure like Dark Souls, or an FPS like Left 4 Dead, or third-person like Silent Hill. It's a visual novel game, meaning it's like reading a choose-your-own-adventure book with beautiful digital paintings. It's text-heavy, atmospheric, suspenseful horror.
There are a handful chapters to enjoy in the full story. Each chapter takes you to a different Haunt location that seems to be based on actual Japanese folklore (for example, the infamous Suicide Forest). Certain decisions during the chapter will result in a “good” or “bad” ending.
Gameplay is similar to point-and-click adventures, but I'd most compare it to the Phoenix Wright games. You navigate to and explore each frame of your environment for clues, items, and puzzles. This can also prompt dialogue from your partners, which you choose before going to a Haunt.
When you stumble upon "Live or Die" sequences, it's kind of like Psyche-Lock or court battles in Phoenix Wright. You have a very limited time as your Soul Power (HP) counts down until you select an answer. Your answer will determine whether you live, die, or continue onto the next question. If you die, you can pick up at the beginning of the "Live or Die" sequence or where you last saved. You can freely save anytime at the Mansion or in a Haunt, and you can replenish Soul Power by finding hidden worn-out talismans during your adventure.
Combat is turn-based and requires you to think about the story and the items you’ve accumulated. Use the right items at the right time, or in combinations with your partner, to defeat spirits.
The translation from Japanese to English was well done and eloquent. The music is lush and dark, like slower-paced Castlevania songs. The sound effects are creepy and immersive. There have been instances where I moved my flashlight to investigate a frame, and there was a glimpse of a ghost disappearing, followed by hollow laughter or crying.
Overall, I'm happy with my Death Mark experience. I haven't played anything quite like this, and I welcomed the change of pace. Just know what you're getting into before you buy it.
