Cursed Mountain (Wii)

 

It's cold in the Himalayas--damned cold. The chill fills your lungs as you desperately search the mountain for the leftover canisters of oxygen you need to survive. And as you draw rattling breaths with burning lungs, you desperately defend yourself...

Cursed Mountain is a game that interested some horror fans since its initial announcement. And while it's a bit hard to say whether or not they will get a satisfying experience with this game, I think that there is a lot to love here. With the survival...

Immersive Atmosphere ; Good Graphics ; Interesting Story

Sometimes frustrating controls ; Basic puzzles ; Linear game design

This Wii-exclusive title does a fantastic job of building a genuinely chilling atmosphere around an intriguing story. However, it suffers the curse of conservative game design and the motion controls sometimes stifle gameplay rather than enhance it. If...

Cursed Mountain

 

A unique survival horror game for the Wii that barely misses the mark.

Really, my biggest issue with the game comes from the pacing, and while I agree that slowing things down compared to a typical action title isn't a bad idea at all, at the same time I think that you need to spice it up a little bit instead of just...

Cursed Mountain

 

You'll have to fight to survive in this game, even if some of the bad guys are only in your mind.

Unfortunately, that’s about all the ice pick is good for. You’ll spend most of your time trudging through abandoned villages, hunting down keys for locked doors or smashing clay pots for the items they contain, rather than venturing further up the...

Review: Cursed Mountain (Nintendo Wii)

 

The Wii, astonishingly enough, has been building up quite the library of quirky niche titles behind the scenes. Now, of course there's a metric ton of shovelware on the console, but as competent developers have begun to hit their stride with the...

Cursed Mountain is perfectly enjoyable if you’re willing to forgive its gameplay flaws, as the presentation of the game is generally solid and the concept is interesting and different, but if you’re a fan of gameplay over all else, it might not be...

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 (2009) on Wii

 

has created a unique battle system that keeps with the themes of the game. Eventually, Simmons gains access to upgrades for his pick-axe that inevitably allow him to shoot projectiles at attacking ghosts, which is done intuitively by aiming at the...

Are you man enough to trek through the haunted Himalayas in search of your missing brother?

I Think This Mountain is Cursed
