I really like the feel of this game, it's cheesy in all the right ways. It's the only game that I have excused for having absolutely god awful gameplay because the plot and atmosphere are so much fun. Though the plot gets really shitty towards the end with the rushed alien stuff. Also, holy fuck, the camera angles are so fucking confusing.

I also remember when I played for the first time it took me ages to realize that I needed to do certain stuff every single day to trigger the next scene, and thus every single day I would just click the shit out of everything until there was nothing else to click and then the game would proceed. It was a chore at first, but it turned into a routine and it was okay after that.

I also forgot to mention that these two games have very little to do with each other, so you can just jump in Phantasmagoria 2 if you want to.

The layout and controls are really hard to figure out at first, but once you get into the game it's one hell of a ride. The camera angles are sometimes really weird and hard to figure out where you're supposed to go to, and even harder to figure out where you're allowed to go.

I finished both Phantasmagoria games recently, and now we're having a thread about them. I enjoyed them both, but I enjoyed Phantasmagoria 2 way more than the first one.
To my surprise Phantasmagoria 2 is generally disliked by the fans and it got thrashed by the reviewers. I thought it was much better than the first one: Real sets, better acting, better/actual puzzles, more dialogue, better music, better plot, etc. and just more deeper game in general.

I think the first Phantasmagoria is really nice experience, but as a point and click adventure it's little bit too bare bones. There really are no puzzles, unless you call using key on door a puzzle. The acting is really cheesy -which is not a bad thing- but the game relies wayyy too much on the FMV and not in the pointing and clicking.

Phantasmagoria 2 started out really slowly, took me about 3 hours to get even started because the camera is so retarded; you just have to guess where you are and where you have to go, because the camera sometimes has angles so tight that you can't even know which parts of the room are clickable and which are just background. Also, fuck the context sensitive cursor. The ending is also really weak.
