So, this game is officiallly the most ridiculously difficult game I've ever played. I find myself frustrated rather than scared, and seriously start questioning whether playing it further is worth it. It's incredibly unreliable when it comes to trying to predicting ghost movements and very clumsy and slow when it comes to controlling the character. One of my last ghost battles almost made me drop the game entirely: I ended up replaying the same ghost battle over and over for hours, only to die from another ghost after a case of miraculous success, after heading to save room in hope to save!
But people have played this game, surely there's something I've missed. It can't be that difficult, otherwise it would be universally considered a bad game, rather than old-school-style-difficult.
If that helps, I'm stuck in the second night, just after getting an angry mask now. The first night was easy, but now I've been moving at a snail pace, mostly stopping to play each night because of frustration. I have upgraded basic camera functions 3-4-3, i.e. speed is fully upgraded, range and value not yet. No bonus or special functions.
I especially HATE one thing about battles: here it is, the orange circle, the ghost is right in front of you, the camera is fully charged, here comes zero shot! But wait, no, when you press the button that's exactly when the circle disappears completely for a split second (even though the camera is still upon the ghost), only to reappear a split second later when you've made your shot! And voila, your shot hit nothing, and then you're hit quickly by the ghost, half of life gone. Makes me want to smash something... This is plain cheating, done by the game!
