      Ju-On or the Grudge as its known outside of Japan started out as a film directed by Takashi Shimizu it was then ‘remade’ in America that became a success that went and spawned 2 sequels.

      The game follows the movies on linear storyline but with all new characters. Being a wii exclusive title may not have been developers Feelplus smartest move but seing the final build of the game its clear why.

      The developers decided to do away with traditional gameplay and have the protagonists alone in a somewhat linear area with set objectives but no enemies. However that doesnt mean the game

      is boring, there are many scripted areas that when visited or ofter completing an objective will trigger a ‘jump scene’ to scare the player. They also done away with traditional control setup it only uses the wiimote and one button to move, they player holds the remote as a flashlight as the protagonist is and the ‘B’ button to move forward however the motion control can be buggy at times witch lead to the camera not pointing where you want it fustrating the player and the movement speed is slow it makes gameplay boring and slow paced.

      The game is essentially a ...

      • single player however the developers added the ability for anyone who picks up another wiimote to scare the player with a sudden pop up. This adds a whole new gameplay element as your never going to know when the 2nd player is going to do it and there are a few different pop ups for variety but theres no way to tell what it will be and often the same animation will play twice.

        There are 4 stages for the player to explore and an unlockable stage once you have collected hidden objects. The stages may change slightly by adding or taking

        away the scripted elements to change up gameplay but its not that noticable each stage takes around 30-40 minutes if you know what to do and were to go. There osnt much replayability in the game unless you count the ‘2nd player mode’ or looking for all hidden items for the 5th and final stage.

        I played this game on a live stream and managed to entertain over 200 people, I say this would be a fantastic game for a late night party with a group of people aged 14-19 but not for great storytelling or gameplay but the atmosphere the game provides
