As a long-time fan of the Fatal Frame series, I can see the perceived appeal of having the Wii U's GamePad with its gyro sensor and dedicated screen acting as a proxy for the game's ghost-killing camera. But while it works in Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (Fatal Frame V), I'd rather just use my big screen TV.

However, that's not to say that the experience has been completely negative. Some interesting changes have come to pass thanks to the GamePad that serve to change up the combat gameplay for the better.
