JU-ON: The Grudge: Haunted House Simulator

Digital Chumps
30 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Chilling? Occasionally. Or maybe it’s just because I’m a wuss. Regardless, JU-ON: The Grudge: Haunted House Simulator provides very little entertainment beyond the surface appeal and jump scares. The entire experience lasts just a couple of hours, and you’ll soon find that’s even too long.

Ju-on: The Grudge

Hardcore Gamer
29 October 2009
  • Summary: The Ju-on movies (called The Grudge in America) are well-known for two things: meowing naked boys and burbling greasy-haired girls. Recently, both of these lovable ghouls were finally given the chance to star in their very own video game, and… well, it actually ends up being an interactive movie.

Ju-on: The Grudge Review

G4
27 October 2009
  • Summary: Based on the Japanese movies of the same name, this horror game attempts to break new ground. Sadly, unless slow and boring were the developer's goals, they don't succeed. Even fans of the movies will likely find this grudge too hard to bear.
  • Pros: Creepy atmosphere, Interesting gameplay mechanic in theory, Ghost models look accurate
  • Cons: Boring and repetitive, Painfully slow pacing, Not scary, Crazy short

Ju-On: The Grudge

Gamer Limit
26 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Ju-On: The Grudge ends up being more frustrating than scary, as terrible controls and gameplay force the player to adhere to elements of gameplay that fall very short of what can even remotely be considered fun and/or frightening.

  • Excerpt: I liked SAW: The Video Game . I’m sure there are some quotes floating around the internet where I made fun of the developers when it was first announced, but it wasn’t bad, and I happily accepted that I was wrong. The developers managed to pull in the aspects that made the films frightening, all while being surprisingly unique.

Test de JU-ON : The Grudge

Nintendo
22 December 2009
  • Summary: L'ambiance du titre est censée être oppressante et horrifique, mais au lieu de cela elle est tout juste soporifique. C'est bien cela qui est dommage. En tant que simulateur de maison hantée, le jeu passe à côté de sa vocation. A vouloir distiller l'horreur avec (trop de) parcimonie, le titre en devient mou et ennuyeux, sans aucune saveur. Ju-On est un jeu raté qui ne mérite pas sa place dans votre ludothèque.

Ju-on: The Grudge

Gamereactor

  • Conclusion: Ju-on er en filmserie regissert av den legendariske Takashi Shimizu, en slags Shigeru Miyamoto for grøsserfansen. For noen år siden ble det laget en amerikansk versjon av klassikeren, og den tok den vestlige verden med storm. Personlig har jeg alltid elsket japanske skrekkfilmer, og måten de spiller på psyken er intet annet en genial. Det var derfor jeg gledet meg til Ju-On: The Grudge, et spill som like godt kunne hett The Grudge: The Grudge.
  • Pros: Ok omgivelser og musikk, nesten ingen bugs, kult konsept...
  • Cons: ...men dårlig utført, kjipt historie, tidenes treigeste kontroll, ille kamera

Ju-On: The Grudge

  • Summary: Das einzig wirklich gruselige an Ju-On: The Grudge ist die katastrophale Steuerung, was den Titel zur wohl schlechtesten Wii-Umsetzung des Jahres macht. Die Sound-Kulisse, einer der wichtigsten Punkte in einem Horror-Spiel, ist quasi nicht vorhanden und die Grafik wirkt selbst für einen Wii-Titel mehr als veraltet. Hier hat FeelPlus versucht, schnelles Geld mit einer bekannten Marke zu machen. Dieses Vorhaben ist definitv gescheitert.
  • Pros: Film-Lizenz
  • Cons: katastrophale Steuerung, veraltete Grafik, unauthentische Sound-Effekte, keine Grusel-Atmosphäre
