Usually I'm a hater of 'so bad it's good' and insist on labelling stuff in that category as 'shit'. Deadly Premonition, however, just feels different. The basic systems are clunky and either too basic or too convoluted but for me it all just fits together nicely as one weird dysfunctional whole. It's like Resi 4 on acid, with some low killer7 and maybe even Shenmue vibes thrown in. Loving it so far.
You don't really play Deadly Premonition for the gameplay. It's one of those "so bad it's good" kind of deals. Except that the story itself really is rather good, in a bonkers Twin Peaks kind of way.
