Summary: When the reboot of the Ju-On came out my sister recommended I watch it. When I got up the nerve to finally watch it, it scared the living crap out of me, to say the least. I also like the other films that were released. The little boy, Toshio Saeki just gives me the creeps. That's one kid I wouldn't want to mess with lol So anyway.
Summary: As an avid survival horror fan I'm seldom caught off guard by scripted moments, but I actually did find myself jumping once or twice while playing. That being said nothing else in this game works. At the start your asked if your male or female and then regardless of your choice you start as a female. There's very little story to start your dog runs into a factory and you chase after, but for some reason the cat kid and creepy moaning girl are there.
Summary: I was hoping for something as scary as Nanashi no Game Me for Nintendo DS. Well, this game could have been scary, but it has some serious mechanical flaws. I could not really make it through the second level because of the frustrating controls. Here is a simple breakdown of what I managed to play through on The Grudge.
Ju-On: The Grudge For Wii - Acceptable as a Party Game For Teens Or Those Who Startle Easily

Summary: JU-ON: The Grudge for Wii is definitely not the "thrill-a-minute" scare-fest that some would have you think it is. But while this is not a very good game for serious gamers, it does fill a certain niche. If you are having a party, this can be a funny way to pass an hour or two. It's not going to scare everybody in the traditional sense, but it will startle you with the ghosts jumping out at you.
Summary: and it wasnt. The graphics are decent, but the movements are far to difficult to manage with the wii remotes, especially since you need to get places quickly before your flashlight battery runs out. Also, the second player option lets you "scare" the main player, but the these "scares" are just pop-up images that flash across the screen. This gets boring and predictable quickly. Save your money.
Summary: It could have been very good were it not for the insane control system which finds your torch beam pointing madly (often at the ceiling)and very little you can do other than shaking the control which spins you round and lands you anywhere. There's also not much to do other than collect batteries and keys and it soon becomes mighty tedious. Good idea to have almost zero combat and fighting though, they should improve on it.
Conclusion: First of all, this game has a brilliant idea, which is why I was keen to try it despite the bad reviews. However, when I finally got it, I was disappointed by many things. When I first played it, I turned out the lights and sat on my own in hopes for some scares, and unfortuantly, they became predicatable all too soon, you simply expected them to come when they did.
