[REC] Shutter is a horror game where you must progress through levels while avoiding the paranormal and solving puzzles. The story will progress as the player goes through the levels. This Game will not only focus on his recordings but even on his story and his life. You take the role of a reporter named Connor, which will be reporting Penny hill a dark hunted asylum. You will be equipped with the latest equipment; animated camera which includes night vision and a shutter effect. Filming every action you take and taking screenshot's of paranormal activity. Game will include feature's like fear, stealth, investigation and much much more.


Health System: The player has a low amount of health, and will die after around 4 hits from an enemy. The player's health will be monitored by the cracks on the camera screen. This means you're camera is damaged and you need to fix it, To Fix it in some levels you will find a Repair box, Use this to fix you're camera cracks. Camera cracks will only disappear when You fix it via an toolbox. If the player dies, he will drop to the ground and the screen will fade to black. The game will then automatically load the last saved game.

Panic System: If something paranormal happens, the player's panic level will increase. Staring at enemies will also cause the panic level to increase. A higher panic level means the player becomes harder to control due to Fear. The player will also occasionally shake when panic levels are high. Fear decrease when a safe area is reached.Also Pills can be taken to decrease panic level.

Inventory System: The player has an inventory to store items such as health packs, Pill, and keys. This means the player can use the items when they choose, rather than forcing them to use them at a specific time.

Movement System: The player will slowly walk and can sprint a little quickly. This means walking is slow enough to easily investigate, and sprinting is fast enough to escape enemies. Stamina will be unlimited.

Camera System: Pressing F will activate Night Vision to make it easier for the player to see in dark areas. Press the right mouse button will make the camera take a picture - sound plays and white HUD fades out. An objective could be to take photos of items.

Save/Load System: Auto save zones will automatically save the game when the player enters them. Resuming game in the menu will automatically load the last auto save.

Investigate System: clicking the mouse button means the player investigates the item. clicking again causes the item to be picked up.

Stealth System: Pressing V will activate stealth system, where the players see where is darker hide from The paranormal.

Zooming System: Pressing R to zoom in and T to zoom out. This will help you check for objects and see things more clearly before going in the way!

Is there a search for the most annoying person to review games these days? As an older gamer, (early 30s) I'm seeing this a lot by these 20-something year-olds that act like jack ***** while reviewing a game. I realize this game is free, but this guy is so annoying, I couldn't even finish the video.

Dude If you have a problem with a review from someone who is younger than you, well make your own review then, its not his fault that he doesn't please you, and as a 16 year old gamer who does game reviews and let's plays, I find that,its people like you who don't appreciate how lucky you are to being able to watch a review of a game before playing it, and with the people who review the game, 9 out of 10 don't watch other reviews until after their review is out. So please if you really have that big of problem go make your own review, with face cam reaction, game play and sound, instead of whining about how "oh i couldn't even finish the video".

Wrong, exprez is correct. I'm 21 years old, and to be honest, there are too many immature fellas' that just get a game, they don't like it, and make a video to talk **** about it. Why not make a review about what could be put into it to make it better instead of raging against it. People have to learn how to do things right instead of just jumping off of the cliff.

Yet again I'm 16, if you have a problem with how other people make reviews and stuff make one your self, Don't sit and Bitch about how bad it is. That's what I've been trying to say.

It wasn't said before, but person can do good review no matter how old he or she is. It's a review so there must be followed some standards, introduction, which should not be about some different game we don't care about. He should be focused on the game as he is presenting the content, not making terrible jokes instead. Talking about pros and cons, that's the part when he makes critics, not hating or something. And please don't tell me I should do the comentary too, it's not your decision. Btw, nobody cares how old are you, it doesn't have to do anything with your point of view.

Don't really know how to deal with the spiky monster thing that attacks you when you attempt to go through the door past the keyring with the three keys like 5 minutes into the game. He kinda disappears but still attacks.

You will need to run away from him, taking the keys and opening the door to the other side is a other way to outrun him.

This game is beautiful, Though the 'walking' seems slowish, it fits perfectly in with the over all world and atmosphere of the game. I honestly cannot complain because the speed is perfect. I'm sure if anyone of us were to go to a asylum that was spooky we would all walk slow. Honestly this man has balls becuase I would sit in a corner for 10 minutes if somethingwas chasing me and leave. So the walking is perfect for those who are complaining about it becuase it fits how a actually person would…

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 1/10

*Random frequent tv static with loud audio (makes no sense on a camera during recording). The very beginning starts you in a room you can't quite see and no determinable direction how to begin. *Ridiculously slow movement with no run option. Since you can't fight back, you can't even run away when attacked. *There is little in the way of exploration. Linear and far too dark. *No gamma setting. No torch. Just a lot of black corners and corridors. *No control options. Not even a place to see what…
