"The First Good Horror in Years"
4 stars"

I normally like to write in terms that explain my points gradually, but with Siren Blood Curse, the most honest thing I can do is explain the positives and negatives. It is a worthwhile game, and one I'm glad to own, and I can accept it's faults. Like Mirror's Edge, it's an experiment, an attempt to introduce something new into the game market, and it's up to each and every player to decide whether or not they think it's a success.

Positives:

  • First time a game has scared me since Silent Hill
  • SightJack is an impressive and useful feature.
  • Quite attractive game.
  • Stupendously awesome plot.
  • Episodic gameplay, Cinema mode.
  • An Original Game! <Even if it's based off the original Siren game…>
  • Audio appropriate and awesome.
  • Voice Actors actually know what they're doing. No fake accents, no stupid lines, and no monotonal ‘Oh no it's going to eat me.’ People sound scared, excited, and so forth.
  • Game allows you to review the story at regular intervals.
  • Puzzles are challenging.

Negatives

  • Controls can be difficult to get.
  • Sightjack slows the framerate dramatically.. On a system as powerful as a PS3. (Personally confirmed on a 40gb and an 80gb console.)
  • Story can be difficult to get. Game insists on doing a recap at the start of each episode, and a ‘in the next episode’, each episode.
  • Narrow. While there may be a few paths and tactics to get to objectives, there's always just one set ‘way’. to complete them.
  • Puzzles ‘can’ be too challenging. One of them had me stumped for a long time.
  • Huge )4.5gb) install for a game that you still need the disc to play, unless you download from PSN.
  • Short. It took about twelve hours for the first playthrough, could probably be done is much less. Replayability is limited.
  • No Trophy Support

I loved it. And for the price is was when it was released, $60, it's very competitive.

"More Pterrorfying than Pteradactyls"
5 stars"

this game is, hard, very hard, the controls take a bit of getting used to but when you're over that… bring on the scares… well actually, its probably made even scarier when a zombie is running at you and you don't know which button to press but hey, when you do its awesome!!!

the weapons are real cool, theres around 50+ weapons ranging from sickles to guns, each one with its own unique attack speed and stopping power… needless to say shooting a zombie stops em dead in their tracks, but beating a zombie with a shovel after it just chased you down is oh so satisfying…

the story set out is pretty sweet, flowing over 12 episodes, which are all included on the disc for those who were wondering, and switches and weaves between the various characters

atmoshperically this game is wicked for creating a horror setting and massively suspenseful ‘will they find me moments’

check it out if you are looking to add a horror game to the selection, is a nice change from the flood of FPS and driving titles

Description

A TV crew from America arrive to research and film an exposé on the urban myth of Hanuda, the Vanished Village, where human sacrifices are said to have taken place.

Hanuda is a dark, eerie world, frozen in the 1970s and surrounded by a red sea. An ancient curse has been set upon the town and you, as the visitors, must save the remaining inhabitants including the beautiful Miyako. In order to survive you must defend yourself from the vicious Shibito, or living dead, and other terrifying monsters.

Throughout the game you will play each of the visitors to the village. The game's unique Sight-Jack System enables you to switch seamlessly between the visions of the hunted and the hunters. Blood, guts and gore are super-enhanced by amazing graphic effects, an advanced physics engine and shockingly realistic facial animations.

Features:
  • Enter an incredibly realistic world that drags you into the horror of Hanuda village
  • Episodic content released via PLAYSTATION Store
  • Enhanced Sight-Jack System and a huge variety of actions enable fast paced dynamic gameplay
