Mediocre teen horror game, more scary than violent.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is rated "Teen" more for the scary content than for its violence. Calling has disturbing imagery including weird-looking dolls, mysterious girls with long black hair, dark environments, apparitions, and so on. The violence takes the form of fighting off ghosts, but there is no gore. This game is fine for teens who like horror films.

  • Excerpt: Japanese horror is one of the most hit-or-miss genres in gaming. Even such celebrated series as Silent Hill have terrible entries. Enter “Calling”, with its cell-phone centric gameplay and plot surrounding four characters trying to contact the dead. Will it have perfect reception, or will the call be dropped?

It will bore you to death.

  • Conclusion: Calling is absolutely worthless. The acting is terrible, it controls poorly, and it's chock full of dumb cliches. It’s the videogame equivalent of the more recent Asian horror remakes. You could not find a less scary survival horror game on the Wii.

  • Summary: Ripping off every Japanese horror trick in the book doesn't make this poor attempt at survival horror any scarier.
  • Pros: Spooky, atmospheric locations, Solid controls
  • Cons: Lame ghost encounter waggle fights, Unforgiveable progress structure, Not very scary
