Summary: Honestly, the game was pretty basic. The controls were a bit sticky but handled well enough. The main difficulty was in pointing the Wii remote at the screen in order to control the flashlight. The scare tactics of the game relied mainly on cheap pop-outs and sudden loud noises.
Summary: I love horror games, and most of all, I loved watching all the Ju-On movies, both in English in Japanese. I love video games and horror movies, but this is sort of a let down. This game is really short, considering there's only like... 4 or 5 different levels to it.
Summary: If you are looking for an epic survival horror experience with top-notch gameplay and a finely crafted plot... this is not the game you're looking for, you don't need to see its identification, it can go about its business, move along.
An updated review from a major Ju-on Fan with a slight grudge
22 October 2009
Summary: I decided to update my review after having some extra time with the game. As an older Wii owner I'm starved for horror, as this is my only console at the moment. The original/Japanese movie Ju-on was my 1st introduction into the Asian Horror genre, so I have a great fondness for the series.
Summary: Been a big fan of the Ju-on series I felt that this game would be a great collection for my Wii game library, but after playing the game all I can say is while it had some creepy moments all in all the game was a real letdown.
Summary: The game is a scary a bit,graphics ok seeing the grudge at night will probally scare me but finding batteries is hard and being bale to obtain he special item needed is hard too. I will have to have another go but im pleased i bought it and if i get any further it probally will scare me
Excerpt: Story 4/10 Epic fail here. Considering the films created a wonderfully rich story behind these 'curses' and the characters, the developers already had a backstory and a lot of history to play with. Did they? Did they heck.
Pros: One of the scariest games I've ever played, innovative
Cons: poor story, even for the Wii the graphics aren't super
