Cursed Mountain was one Wii game that I had always intended to be on my shelf, but I never got around to making it so. When I saw that its price had been dropped to the sub-twenty-dollar mark, I was ready to jump on it. Just then, I saw that one of the suggested links read, “Cursed Mountain Limited Edition“. Hmmm, intrigued.
Hardcore Wii title? Check. STEELBOOK? Check. A second disc with “The Making of Cursed Mountain” on one side and the full soundtrack on the other? Check. And only two left? Perfect. This was my chance(the LE was a mere ten dollars more). The game was co-developed by Sproing Interactive and Deep Silver Vienna(whom we discussed on the last show), making this almost their swan song. “Even if I do not play it to completion, it will be a great item for the collection”, I muttered to myself. Here is the difference between the two covers:
To my pleasant surprise, I am really enjoying the game thus far. While definitely an imperfect game and not of AAA pedigree, there are some great mechanics at work here. I am three chapters in at this point and am ready(and extremely willing) to keep going. Look for the Retrospective Review in the near future.
