My Life With SEGA dives into the Saturn classic Deep Fear

Halloween month continues with another creepy video review from AJ, this time he dives into the Saturn classic Deep Fear.

You wanna’ see something really scary? Watch The Shinning, or A Nightmare on Elm Street, or Problem Child 3. Now, if you want something dark, moody and interactive, look no further….

This is Deep Fear for Sega Saturn. Sega’s answer to Capcom’s popular Resident Evil/Bio Hazard franchise. You may be saying to yourself, “I had a Saturn back in the day. Why haven’t I heard of it?” That’s easy; it was only released in Japan, England and Europe. There ya’ have it.

Did we miss out? The answer to that question lies in this video.

    Very nice review!
    Too bad I never completed this game, the thing I remember is after beaten a boss, I had to go back somewhere (maybe escape the submarine) but died because of time out <_<.

    Anyway, I'm surprised to hear english dub from a japanese version, but I think it was the same with Bio Hazard…

      I think they went with the English dub to mimic Bio Hazard, because Mikami (creator of Bio Hazard) didn’t like the Japanese dub they recorded and decided to stick with the English soundtrack for all versions.

  2. I bought this while on my trip to Chicago, think it was $5. Really should play it this month, to celebrate Satan!

    This was really a great video. I remember my brother playing it when I was a kid. I have some pretty fond memories of it, don’t know where it went though

    So the Japanese version has english dubbing? If so I’ll buy it on ebay today. Thanks!

      Yeah, the voice work’s all done in English, but 90% of the text is in Japanese. It’s not the most import friendly game available, but you can make sense of the puzzles and go from there. If you get stuck, you can download a walkthrough online.

    I play through this every couple of years or so, great game. I love RE but this just felt so much more epic, claustrophobic and tense. It’s like “playing” through your favourite film.

    The more people get to hear about this the better, HD remake? Ooo yes please!
