JU-ON: The Grudge : Haunted House Simulator Review

reviewthetech.com
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Ju-On The Grudge could have been a great game really. It’s got a good idea behind it but the execution is what’s really scary about this game. The controls are just amazingly horrible, the very first games on the Wii had funky controls, but even they weren’t this bad. You’d think after all this time companies could have figured out how to program for the Wii controls. It does have some scary moments yes, but they aren’t worth the trouble of actually playing the game.
  • Pros: + Great idea for a game, + Actual scary moments
  • Cons: - Sub-par graphics, – Very slow movement, – Inaccurate and inconsistent turn movements, – Horrible controls overall

Ju-On: The Grudge Review

  • Conclusion: In short, Ju-On: The Grudge is a great idea marred by middling execution. Purchasers can expect some great scares, but the actual gameplay feels clunky and unnatural, and there isn't much play time to be had here. At $30, this is not a worthy buy.

JU-ON: The Grudge

  • Excerpt: JU-ON: The Grudge is based on the Japanese horror flicks of the same name. In North America, the movies were simply called The Grudge. Published by Xseed, JU-ON is billed as a haunted house simulator. Personally I have never heard of a game being classified as such, but I thought “what the heck, there is a first time for everything”. Not being one for scary movies or games, somehow I still ended up as the one to review this title for the Wii.

JU-ON: The Grudge (Haunted House Simulator)

Gaming Evolution
13 October 2009
  • Conclusion: While I would to recommend this game to survival horror fanatics, there are one too many issues with the game that to keep it from becoming a memorable gaming experience. No combat, no weapons, 2-3 hours’ worth of gameplay and an iffy camera don’t sound like ‘win win’ qualities to the average gamer. For what it’s worth, the source material that was pulled upon for this title was rather good.

Ju-On: The Grudge (Wii review)

Game Hub
16 November 2009
  • Excerpt: This ‘fright simulator’ loosely borrows from the films to provide a few cheap jumps and puzzles. You control a girl that enters an abandoned warehouse to retrieve her wandering dog. Naturally it’s cursed, now you are too and you better start to work out how to appease the spirits of these spiteful child ghosts before they claims your soul, or something.

Ju-on: The Grudge [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
12 November 2009
  • Excerpt: The game is categorised as a “haunted house simulation”, which in itself is an interesting concept. Haunted houses conjure up the image of a fairground ride with frightening figures popping out from dark corners, and the odd loud noise seemingly coming from nowhere. So what does a haunted house simulation actually translate to on a television screen?
  • Pros: Good scare factor with plenty of jumpy moments, Not many controls to remember, Settings make for creepy atmosphere
  • Cons: Unpredictable controls, Very little replay value with repetitive gameplay, Episodes are short and unchallenging
