Hardcore Gamer writes: "Ju-on: The Grudge is a first-person haunted house simulator. Really. It says so on the cover! There is no fighting, and the infrequent action scenes are simply quick-time reaction sequences. The entirety of the game pretty much boils down to scripted jump-scares and "find the door key" hunts. The problem is that the jump-scares are more annoying than frightening, and far too predictable. Ten minutes into the game I found myself being able to calculate exactly when something is going to happen and nine times out of ten I was right. Sure, there are some genuine frights, but it's only a matter of time before the random bangs, falling objects, and gurgles become tiresome."
