    For those who don't know, Cursed Mountain is a survival horror title for the Wii and its said to be the next so called "core" title for the console.

    82 is a good score so I hope its as good as it should be.

    This game looks great. And I have to say, that I got really excited over this game after seeing this video with the developer talking about the Buddhist background of the game:

    Although I'm sure it'll but good at the least decent I'm gonna pass. From the moment IGN premiered it, I had no interest. Maybe cuz I'm not really into horror titles or the game just looks to bland and isn't doing anything significant enough for me to care. IDK.

    Now,@Opinion: Meh, I think this whole "Ghost/Zombies-Games" on Wii is slowly getting annoying. Ju-On, Cursed Mountain, Fatal Frame 4, Resident Evil (4, UC, DC, A, etc..), The Grinder, Dead Space Extraction, etc.. I think we have enought now...although I'll look into Cursed Mountain for shure....

    Surprised by the score, when I saw videos of the combat it looked a bit crap. And I didn't know this was coming out any time soon, what's the release date?

    Its out 25th August in the US & 4th September in Europe.

    Yeah I'm not sure if its something I want to play as soon as its out but I guess it beats the usual crap.

    It looks pretty interesting. I like the style and the atmosphere, it's rather original. But what do I know - I'm hardly playing any horror games.

    Seems like an interesting game. I'll keep my eyes on it, that's for sure.

    Waiting for the game. Consider me a wierdo, but I like horros on the Wii, and this one looks really promising, at least graphic-wise, with some new ideas about the setting.

    I have to say, that I`m really excited for this game. Often I find myself very enjoyed when playing games, that focus on atmosphere and story...

    The part I think I`ll like most in this game is the feeling of isolation and loneliness, which enhances the experience of searching for someone. That`s at least what I hope this game will be like.

    This game is too scary for me. I've played through several survival horror games, but almost nothing has scared me this much, and I'm not even too far into this game. I'm gonna play some more, but only few moments per day.
