I ordered the Limited Edition version of Cursed Mountain with some uncertainty whether or not it would meet my high hopes. Fortunately, it exceeded my expectations in many ways. It's definitely not for everybody, but for the right kind of gamer this will be a welcome addition to your video game collection.

What's the difference in having the Limited Edition version? The case is made of tin rather than plastic, the cover art is different (it features a bald, nasty looking, monster-like Buddhist with a dark background) and has a Limited Edition marking on it, and it comes with a CD that has a making of video on one side and the music track for the game on the other. It was definitely worth the extra [...] bucks. Having a tin case with different cover art is pretty cool, and the music is atmospheric enough that it's actually cool to listen to it while driving. Unfortunately, I have yet to watch the making of video. Once I have, I will probably update this review. Now to the game itself.

Plot: You are Eric Simmons--a famous British mountain climber that is searching for his brother Frank Simmons. Eric knows that his brother climbed Mt. Chomolonzo with Paul Ward (an American), but he is not sure why Paul returned without him. To make things stranger, the famous city of Lhando has been deserted by its Buddhist inhabitants for some unknown reason. It doesn't take long to find out that there is a curse on the mountain, and the few Buddhists left are more than glad to share their knowledge and wisdom of what happened. The story gets pretty deep, so get ready for some interesting stuff.

Graphics: Pleasing to the eye, and very realistic for a Wii game.

I've been playing this game for a couple of weeks now and I must say I've been thoroughly enjoying the experience. I'm not sure if I'd categorize it as totally survival horror or a Resident Evil clone. It's much more focused on the adventure aspect than that. As such, I don't think its slow pace is for everybody. However, I happen to love games of this type so it was right up my alley. Though I would say that the ads I've seen about scares are misleading. The game isn't that scary.

The graphics are one of the best parts of the game. They are good and sometimes fantastic in spots. The size and scope of some levels is downright impressive, and building design is as well. Indoors, things start to look a little muddy, and in large environments outside textures can be blurry. Overall, I've seen the graphics of a lot of Wii games, and in spots Cursed Mountain is one of the best looking Wii games I've seen.

Gameplay-wise, movement is stiff but not game-breaking. Games in the past have controlled this way, and in many contemporary cases still do, so no big complaints here. Motion gestures are fun and immersive. I've seen a lot of reviews complaining about the motion controls in this game, but I've never had much of a problem with them. After several tries, I can now do all the motions I encounter in the game without issue, and to me they actually add to the experience.

While it's no Ico, I'm upset that this game has been reviewed worse than drivel like Deca Sports (sorry, my opinion) and My Sims Racing, when clearly much more effort has been put into it than that, but what can you do? Well, I just hope some other people at least try it, so developers like Deep Silver and Sproing can keep making interesting games for the mature Wii audience. ;)

I did not know what to expect when I pre-ordered this game, but I was pleasantly pleased. This game is most interesting. Enthralling story line kept me glued and very interested. The controls are very simple but sometimes annoying. The graphics are stunning. Overall, I must say that I am pleased with having this game in my video game collection. Although this game is not for everyone, more mature gamers will definitely appreciate this game.

When I first heard about this game, I think it was actually in danger of never being released due to publisher issues or budget, can't recall which. So I jumped on it when I later found out it had been released, and got a good deal on the collector's edition.

As the title says, I really wanted to like this game. I'm a fan of the Resident Evil & Silent Hill series, as well as other titles on the genre spectrum like Siren and Fatal Frame. Add to that the location setting of Tibetan mountains and Far East mythology, and it sounded like an awesome entry into my library. Alas, I was to be disappointed.

Some people have stated the game was slow, but I agree with others that say that for survival horror, it's pretty standard, so I didn't have a problem with that. I was even enjoying the story and main character, for as far as I got. What killed my enjoyment was the controls and laggy response in the combat system. Encounters with one or two monsters was manageable, but the controls were clunky enough that more enemies than that made it extremely difficult to keep going and eventually I got frustrated and stopped playing it.

The game mechanic of 'slashing' the enemies with the Wii-mote was intriguing, but the way the programmers implemented it, was far too twitchy to keep the game fun. I would vastly have preferred something like the glyph system in Castlevania: Dawn Of Sorrow. For those not familiar with it, different monsters were defeated by a particular glyph you drew with your stylus. Something like that would have been fairly easy with a Wii-mote. Instead the game had trouble registering basic movements with it, probably due to poor programming.

It really was a shame, because I was looking forward to this game.
