Summary

An American TV crew has arrived in Japan to film an expose on the legend of the “vanished village” only to find themselves caught in a deadly series of events. Controlling seven different playable characters, the player must uncover the mystery behind the curse that grips the eerie village of Hanuda. Intense graphics, realistic character animation and a gritty film-like graphical presentation add to the horror of Siren: Blood Curse.

Overall, Siren: Blood Curse is a pretty awesome horror game. The game's focus on story and substance rather than just shooting zombies really makes this one worth picking up if you are getting a little bored with your run-of-the-mill horror shooters. Plus, its episodic nature really keeps you on the edge of your seat and helps pace your gameplay. And with twelve episodes, each with about 1-2 hours of gameplay, maybe your Thursday night sitcom just became your Thursday night horror!

As an experiment in both survival horror and episodic content, Siren: Blood Curse succeeds on a number of levels. While the first few levels were somewhat clunky, it managed to come together with an increasingly suspenseful set of chapters and cutscenes, frightening jumps and gameplay sequences that could keep you on the edge of your seat for at least a good 12-16 hours.

The surprisingly small number of locales, along with the short running time and the awkward controls, would doom a lesser game to failure. But Blood Curse, with its great use of the sightjacking mechanic, is an unusual game that finds an unusual, terrifying kind of success.
