Cursed Mountain Review

  • Conclusion: As far as survival-horror games go, Cursed Mountain gets a lot of things right and manages to stay afloat through its unconventional setting, intriguing story, and well-designed atmosphere. The harsh environment and the desolate landscape evoke feelings of isolation and till the soil for some solid thrills and chills to grow. Minor control issues and occasional sluggishness in the game's momentum crop up but don't damper the overall spirit.

Cursed Mountain (Wii) Review

Vooks
20 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The survival horror genre was one that was dying pretty quickly with the advent of the HD era. While there were some occasional hits such as Siren: Blood Curse on the Playstation 3, and Silent Hill: Homecoming on multiple formats, there was never really a huge influx of horror games available to horror fans.

  • Conclusion: Cursed Mountain is a successful survival horror game featuring strong production values and solid gameplay. The story is unique but a little slow for a major portion of the game. And, though the game does last for around 20 hours, there is nothing more than the main game to keep you playing. Nonetheless, Cursed Mountain wins the ultimate battle of survival horror titles by setting one killer atmosphere. Pick up the game if you're a fan of the genre.

  • Excerpt: Think about Buddhists and what springs to mind may well be a bunch of slapheads in robes sitting around chanting 'om' all day. You certainly don't associate them with religious curses, turning into ghosts and scaring the bejesus out of plucky young mountaineers.

Review: Cursed Mountain

N-Europe
30 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Limited replayability but if you enjoy your horror games tense with a good story you should enjoy this. If however you prefer lots of action ala RE4, put your climbing gear away and keep away from Chomolonzo.
  • Pros: Graphics and sounds, Voice Acting, Story, Nice tension, unnerving with a few good scare moments early on
  • Cons: TooLinear, Short, could have been longer, Unable to turn character 180 degrees quickly
