More preservation than investigation

3 stars

Most of this book is spent describing and analysing P.T. as an experience. The investigative part is limited to one short, though insightful chapter.

Honestly, that's fine. I didn't get to play P.T. before it was disappeared into Konami's IP vaults. So, this book is much more a work of preservation. Sure, I could fire up a playthrough of this game on YouTube right this instant. But so much is lost with just a video, doubly so for a horror game with the additional mental distance this switch in medium brings. This makes Joel Couture's description of his fears when playing and the tactility of the experience valuable.
