This game is terrible. It's not without occasional upsides—the swordplay can occasionally be entertaining—but the game is laced with constant quicktime events (QTEs) where you have to smash a button or key over and over again. Beyond that, you're often outnumbered and surrounded in combat, so the combat system more often than not comes down to constant parrying until you can actually get in an attack. That would be bad enough, but your weapons break an unreasonable amount. We're talking every 4-5 enemies, here, and you can't parry with a broken weapon, so combat is often interrupted by frantic rushes around the play area looking for weapons fallen enemies may have dropped while trying to avoid the attacks of enemies left standing. It should also be mentioned that these dropped weapons often fall through the ground and disappear forever.
The icing on the cake, though, is the fact that the story is unfinished. I'm not talking about it ending on a minor cliffhanger, either, because the game suddenly cuts to credits in the middle of a cutscene before a single plot thread has been resolved and at a time when the bad guys have everything going their way. The developers simply didn't finish their game, and you'll finish it knowing exactly as much about the "curse" in the title as when you began playing, that being nothing whatsoever.
I may have only paid a few dollars for this, but I also paid with several hours of playing through dull QTEs and watching cutscenes draw out plot threads that will likely never be resolved. It just wasn't worth it in the end, with the game lacking the charm to be "so bad it's good" or the quality to be recommendable. I mean, this is a game that shoehorned in a cringe-worthy reference to a famous 300 scene, thinking it was a good idea. This is a game that takes place almost exclusively in drab tan and gray areas. This is a game where some of the character models look like they belong to a 2011 game (which this is) while others appear to have been ripped out of an N64 game, having feet that are a single block with toes painted on. This is a game where the plot revolves around a good guy telling the bad guy where he can find the magical object he's after while gloating instead of just keeping his idiot mouth closed, and the heroes leading a bunch of innocents right to their death because "hey, we're 60% sure that the villain is totally powerless now."
I could go on listing even more flaws, but I won't; if all of that isn't enough to dissuade you, then you've already made up your mind. That said, if you're here looking for a flawed gem that doesn't cost much, try Venetica, Blood Knights, or maybe even Cyanide's Game of Thrones RPG. All are better games than this.

This game is okay, but at ONE DOLLAR, it's amazing! It has cut-scene dialogue and a so-so story that's driven with decent voice-acting and also decent battle mechanics. If you like third person melee action games then certainly give this a try. It has some pretty brutal finishing moves (decapitation, tons of stabbing, etc) that had be going "OOoOoOoooooh!" a couple of times, and there are plenty of fighting varieties to keep things somewhat refreshing. (Two handed sword, two swords, sword/shield, sword/mace, sword/axe, mace/mace, you get the gist) You get a steam key and the game has achievements. At one dollar you might as well put this in your library for a rainy day.

Please clearly state if the code is region locked. This is very poor business practice as region locked codes normally state that in the sales description. I bought this for a friend not in the US and alas the gift was useless.
