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.
Excerpt: We knew things were bound to get harrowing in The Cursed Crusade; the game's premise is to send you to the depths of Hell... we just didn't expect to actually be tormented. After many hours, we've emerged from this nightmare with blistered fingers from clunky controls, in complete disbelief over its...
Pros: Testing out different weapon combinations, The easy trophies/achievements, Uncovering hidden collectibles

Pros: + Combat can be satisfying, + Co-op is fun, + The leveling system
Cons: Glitches hamper the experience, The writing is painful, Lockon mechanic is broken
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!
