Cursed Mountain Wii Review

 

With the Resident Evil of today being focussed on the survival ahead of the horror and the action in favour of cerebral puzzle solving, the old fashioned form of survival horror games are quickly dying out. As much as I enjoy the more modern entries in...

In terms of quality, Cursed Mountain is just past the midway mark and there's no getting away from the fact that, with more reliable controls, it could have ascended to the near heavenly heights it deserves to.

Cursed Mountain (Wii) review

 

Let's all join hands and say a prayer for survival horror. It's a genre that's been receiving a bit of a kicking over the last few years. Silent Hill has become what many fans consider a sad parody of the series' heyday, while the likes of Dead Space...

Of course, you might argue that your average Wii owner won't necessarily have played many survival horror titles, in which case Cursed Mountain might not?seem so terrible. But then, if you're one of those average Wii owners, you can get the mighty Wii...

Cursed Mountain

 

Cursed Mountain has some good ideas, but for the most part, though, you're having to contend with an awkward control scheme and drab presentation.

Cursed Mountain Review [Wii]

 

New heights of horror

Although this game contains genuine scares, its real strength is in its stunning psychological horror atmosphere. Control quirks and invisible walls spoil the illusion on occasion, but not enough to spoil what's easily the Wii's top addition to the...

Cursed Mountain

 

I can't say that mountain climbing is on my big list of things that I'm desperate to do. I'm physically pushed enough by a decent run around the park, and I'm also quite fond of breathing properly. Then there's the snow, of course - why would I want to...

Cursed Mountain smacks of unfulfilled potential; if the problems could have been solved, it could quite possibly have been one of the best games on the system. As it stands it's a flawed but fun title, and if you want something a bit different in the...

Cursed Mountain

 

While the Wii continues to labour under the perception that it's only home to family friendly games, there's actually been a fair few titles appearing this year that fly in the face of such easy accusations. We've had MadWorld, one of the least family...

actually i disagree. i cant get into this game. its graphics are outdated for today's pc games. the game play is boring the story is boring and predictable. nothing seems new to the horror genre. i was very disappointed in this. i felt like it was 2003...

Cursed Mountain (Wii) review

 

Africa, New Orleans, and now Tibet. Horror's moving up in the world...

Survival-horror may have found a new home on Wii, but Cursed Mountain is far from the perfect housewarming gift.

Cursed Mountain

 

This Himalayan horror adventure will send chills up your spine, even though the controls are as cursed as the titular mountain.

Great setting provides chilly atmosphere ; Authentically integrates Buddhist stories and rituals ; Some cool, memorable sequences ; When the controls work, the combat is fun

The controls don't always work ; Overdone visual effects sometimes make things too dark and hazy ; Can get tedious and predictable

Cursed Mountain

 

It would be fair to say that the Wii is not famous for its gory ghoul-bashing shoot-em-ups. The family orientated games, lack of bloodshed and the far-from-fear-inducing atmosphere that the little white box creates all contribute to this view. There...

Good Storyline ; Makes want you to keep playing

Poor control system ; No map leads to aimless wondering ; Tries too hard to be scary ; It's just not scary

Perhaps Cursed Mountain's main problem is that it tries too hard to be scary. The effort and emphasis put on this are what ultimately lead to its downfall. It's a shame really, as with a few adjustments this could have been better. The inclusion of a...
