Summary: With most games in the genre making the shift towards action horror, Siren: Blood Curse instead retains what made survival horror so appealing in the first place. It would have been easy for them to appease the action/shooter fanbase, and cash in like so many others have. Thankfully, the often under appreciated Siren franchise does not sellout.
Summary: I have found there to be a distinct lack of Japanese-style horror games released on the PS3 that have really grabbed my attention. I didn't particularly think much of Resident Evil 5 and, from what I had heard, Silent Hill hadn't been able to capture the spirit of its second incarnation effectively since, well, the release of Silent Hill 2.
Excerpt: Despite the lack of a number in it's name, Siren Blood Curse is actually the third Siren game, the previous two titles having appeared on the Playstation 2. Blood Curse is a remake of the first game, so you don't need to have played either of the other games to enjoy it. Blood Curse sees you taking control of a variety of seven characters, the majority of whom are part of a TV crew making a documentary about a village that disappeared many years ago.
Summary: With instant action in a series from the tv sort of way, this is varied full of character and fun. The game recaps like a series from the tv, shows what your going to do next time!!! Its all a little weird but intrestingly compelling. You play as various characters each with different attributes. Your able to tap into the "ghosts" vision and see what they see while still playing.
Excerpt: Siren Blood Curse another downloadable game from playstation store. I like this game. It is a cross between resident evil and silent hill. it has a similar story as the ps2 version siren just that the charecters are diferent but have some relevence to the ps2 version. Now this isn't just a jump in and go sort of game the levels or episodes that the game calls it, oh by the way there are 12 episodes in the game. The gae does get harder as it goes on.
Summary: Siren Blood Curse - BDR (PS3) Deep, engaging, atmospheric. A very Japanese survival horror ~ First of all, if you're a familiar with previous Siren games you're in for a treat ! More of a remix in my opinion rather than a remake of the first game, fans will be right at home with the setting and controls and very pleased with the new characters and unravelling story with plenty of mystery and suprise.
A great game that i highly recommend, if you are brave enough!

Excerpt: I was very excited to play this game after playing the other Siren games on the PS2. I bought it from a shop, although i could have bought it of the playstation store and downloaded it if i wanted to. The game is about a group of people, who are in a remote japanese village when a siren rings, which turns many of the residents there into undead zombies.
Conclusion: I've just finished this game and i have to say i loved it all. Ok so the controls are a little off and the game is quite dark but that just adds to the whole atmosphere in my opinion. To be people that say the game is confusing: Welcome to the world of Siren!!! If you've ever played Forbidden Siren & Forbidden Siren 2 then you'll feel right at home. The fact that it's played via episodes is great.
Conclusion: Im not normally a horror fan. I had visited the Siren Blood Curse space in Playstation Home and just had to buy the game. It is scary, it is confusing, it is tough but my god it's good! Some of the spaces you are placed in are like mazes so its not as simple and straight forward as you would think. But you wouldn't be stood there thinking 'ok now what?' there is a map and there are goals and subgoals which are pin pointed on the map.
Conclusion: This is put tograther very well its like watching a serious plus playing a game just love the way they recap the last game play at the start of the next leval the graphics are good and is a bit like playing residant evil but the controlls are not as easy to use the viewing is a little hard at times and could of been better and the game play is a bit all over the place but dont get me wrong this is a great game and is worth a shot cause once you get into it its really...
