A Good Metaphor Spoiled

  • Excerpt: As video games grow and expand as a medium, it becomes increasingly common to see developers attempt to explore messages a little more complex than "most problems can be solved by stabbing.
  • Pros: Wow, this history is really accurate!
  • Cons: One terrible boss fight is bad—but the exact same boss four times in a row?

  • Excerpt: Buried deep within Atlus' The Cursed Crusade is a good game. At times I can almost see it. However, most of the time, that goodness is buried below too much mediocrity to easily be noticed.

  • Conclusion: Eventually culminating in clearing out an abandoned templar stronghold, the two main characters begin forging their plans for what was obviously meant to be a segway into a sequel. No big boss battle, no revelations about the curse that ails you and no real closure to anything story related.

  • Excerpt: The protagonists of The Cursed Crusade are damned to hell, trying to escape death and seek redemption by fighting in the French holy war. Unfortunately, they’re trapped in a game with few redeeming qualities, a dull, pretentious hack-and-slash that fails in almost every way.

  • Summary: With a little more development time and a different release window, Cursed Crusade could have stood a lot higher than it does. Sadly it's let down by clunky combat controls and some graphical and animation errors.

  • Conclusion: As far as the achievements go this game is a cake walk, I have put in around 20 hours play and I only have my nightmare playthrough to finish for game completion so if you can look past the tedious cutscenes and frustrating combat system then it may well end up as a good weekend rental for the more...

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: The focus on co-op can't save this game from being a broken, rushed and ultimately boring experience and chances are your friends'll sever all connections with you for making them play it.
  • Pros: Esteban - both as an AI teammate and co-op choice, Supernatural elements are a nice touch, Yeah, now I'm starting to struggle here!
  • Cons: Awful cut scenes, Awful combat, Incredibly repetitive gameplay

  • Summary: The score may seem a tad low, but compared to other games in its field it simply cannot compare. With more managed expectations, though, there is a lot to like about The Cursed Crusade.
