Game Informer: "When you think about it, a lot of the survival horror games are very similar. Guy or girl with pistol fights weird creepy monsters inspired from John Carpenter's The Thing. But developer and publisher Deep Silver had a different idea. One that does not involve firearms, cheap scare tactics and rotting flesh but rather an overwhelming fear of the unknown. This is the goal of Cursed Mountain, a new Wii game that trades the haunted house for the haunted soul."
