The foundation of Deadly Premonition, the stuff that matters, is still absolutely perfect as far as I am concerned. It is true, of course, that this perfection has been scarred somewhat by the faults found in The Director's Cut, and there's no denying that longtime fans may not be getting what they hoped for in this package. To newcomers or the severely dedicated, however, this is still a bloody great time, and remains one of those games that truly, desperately, must be experienced to be believed.

It helps make the experience feel unbalanced, and that’s more or less the summing up of Deadly Premonition. As a video game, it’s a series of mechanical failures that, really, after all this time spent on the two separate updates since the original, have no real right to exist. But it’s all carried along by a story so surreal that the jerky, clumsy, near enough obsoleteness of the gameplay does kinda fit in. Does that make sense? Probably not, and nor will this next bit. I cannot, in all good faith recommend you go out and purchase this game. It’s a nightmare to navigate, it can’t do survival horror right, and it never, ever settles on what it wants to be. Still, though, you have to play this game. It’s a slice of quirky brilliance, I’m pretty sure the narrative spends more time making fun of you than advancing the plot and it’s so annoyingly unique and creative you’ll both hate it for being as good as it is, and love it for being as bad.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut has been released on Steam and I urge everyone to go out and play this game. If you are open-minded enough I promise you will have a one-of-a-kind experience that you will not soon forget. The PC release though, has its fair share of problems, including poor performance, and a resolution locked at 720p. It’s a bit of a bad console port, to be honest – though one wonders if this adds to the charm.

Deadly Premonition – dieses Spiel ist ein Widerspruch in sich. Auf der einen Seite ein an Twin Peaks erinnernder Thriller mit schrägen Figuren sowie zahlreichen Anspielungen auf Filme und Spiele. Auf der anderen Seite eine technische Zumutung, die noch schlechter klingt als sie aussieht. Fast drei Jahre nach dem Original ändert der Director's Cut daran gar nichts. Spielerisch steckt in diesem Relikt, das beinahe zwei Konsolengenerationen alt scheint, allerdings noch immer das Mysteryabenteuer, das Alan Wake ursprünglich sein wollte: Der Alltag der weitläufigen Kleinstadt-Idylle ist glaubwürdiger als der jedes GTA oder Red Dead Redemption! Nein, ein gutes Spiel ist das längst zum Kult erklärte Deadly Premonition auch heute nicht. Die Ehrung zum besten B-Game des Jahres hat es sich aber einmal mehr redlich verdient!

Deadly Premonition is an experience that has to be taken as a whole. The faults and issues with the game are part of the charm, the little quirks are what makes the game so endearing. In case you haven’t realised, I am in the “Pro Deadly Premonition” camp. It is certainly not for everyone, and an open mind is required before even starting the game. But if you do decide to give the game a try, the PC version with all of its extra content is undoubtedly the best version to try. While I can’t give the game a high score because of its faults, I can certainly recommend that everyone at least give the game a try. Whether you like it or hate it, you won’t forget it…

But it's bogged down by its crap shooting and schizophrenic writing, and it spends more time worshiping Twin Peaks than it does building on it. For all its effort at simulacra, Deadly Premonition doesn't even come close to the contrast between Twin Peaks's humorous moments and its terrifying ones. That lack of contrast saps the energy out of a second playthrough, though the script throws more than enough absurdity and folderol at the screen for a first one. In that way, Deadly Premonition is much better at mimicking 80s horror movies than it is Twin Peaks, and maybe its greatest achievement is that it is exactly the quality of some of the shlocky B-movies that inspired it.
WindowsHardcore Gamer Magazine (Nov 04, 2013)
Deadly Premonition is a mechanically stiff game that’s fortunate enough to have a compelling and intriguing murder mystery backing it up. Unfortunately, the PC port is mired with issues. It’s not the lackluster visuals, repeating animation or the slow and unappealing gameplay that’s the problem; it’s the multitude of technical issues that will push players away. Even with a butter smooth framerate, the Director’s Cut of Deadly Premonition ends up being a scanty attempt to broaden its fanbase without fully comprehending what the players want.

Nun sah Deadly Premonition schon vor drei Jahren richtig alt aus, hatte mit einer unbequemen Steuerung zu kämpfen und schrie an allen Ecken und Enden: "Ich bin das Pendant eines C-Movies!" Deshalb war es trotz seiner schrägen Geschichte, der verqueren Figuren sowie der spielerischen Freiheit immer nur ein befriedigendes Erlebnis – eine Art billiges Kultobjekt. Doch in der PC-Umsetzung kommt zu technischem Unvermögen scheinbar ganze profane Lustlosigkeit hinzu. Oder soll ich etwa glauben, dass die Ladezeiten eine Minute deutlich überschreiten müssen und dass die Einbindung einer Gamepad-Unterstützung einem Mammutwerk gleichkäme? Inhaltlich ist in diesem Director's Cut ja alles drin, sogar die teuren Downloadinhalte des PS3-Originals. Gefühlt ist die magere Umsetzung allerdings eine ganze Klasse schlechter.

En l'état, on regrettera qu'Alan Wake n'ait pas fusionné avec Deadly Premonition, bien plus ambitieux sur certains points que l'oeuvre de Remedy. Plus proche de Twin Peaks que ne le fut le thriller psychologique finlandais, le soft nippon souffre néanmoins d'un nombre insurmontable de tares empêchant le joueur de se plonger pleinement dans ce monde étrange. En effet, difficile de ressentir de l'empathie pour l'ami Francis tant la technique et le gameplay se veulent rebutants. Au final, Deadly Premonition nous montre bien qu'un jeu vidéo se doit avant tout de trouver un parfait équilibre entre la forme et le fond afin d'éviter que l'oeuvre ne sombre dans un abîme de médiocrité duquel un synopsis, aussi bien rédigé soit-il, ne pourra l'en extirper. Ce n'est malheureusement pas le cas en l'état tant on subit l'aventure plus qu'on ne la vit, ceci étant encore plus vrai avec cette Director's Cut, aussi paradoxal que cela puisse paraître.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is basically the same game as the first, but with upscaled graphics, a few new cut scenes and massively improved controls, making the game far more accessible to the average person. The game’s story is still as brilliant, surreal, and bizarre as ever, and while the game won’t appeal to everyone, those who miss the titles like Clock Tower, Hellnight, Shadow Hearts and Enemy Zero will love this, while other gamers will be left shaking their head at the sheer amount of adoration this title gets.
