“Curse: The Eye of Isis is a fun, creepy, good looking horror game.”
78% – IGN

“The graphics are dripping with dark Victorian depravity. The environments look and feel old and worn and gloomy.”
73% – GameZone

“It's worthy of a spot in your collection beside Resident Evil and Silent Hill and should provide several good evenings of fright.”

For whatever reason my entire review got deleted when I went to post! Ugh! Long story short, this is a fun survival horror game that was unfairly maligned when released. Solid game play with an adventure feel like mixing Resident Evil 1-3, the Silent Hill series, Eternal Darkness and the Indiana Jones movies. Definitely give it a check.

Pros:

-Old school survival horror gameplay
-Decent graphics with fun monsters to fight, excellent locations to explore and entertaining bosses
-Excellent, creepy sound design
-Engaging story with 2 characters to switch between
-Travelling inventory save/storage character is well-implemented
-Satisfying campaign length (took me about 10 hours, some of my gameplay time was spent paused)
-Solid selection of weapons
-Cool mix between puzzles, exploration and combat

Cons:

-Clunky controls and unable to remap movement keys (you get used to it)
-Story conclusion is somewhat half baked
-Character models could use some work
-2 different characters but no different abilities
-More melee weapons would be fun
-Body part targeting mechanic is under-utilized (necessary in boss fights but really nowhere else)

Rating: 7.8/10

Fans of overlooked, underrated horror games like Cold Fear, Cursed Mountain, etc., should have a blast with this!

A fun survival horror game from a company that mainly made just straight adventure games so it has plenty of story and puzzles
