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

A fun but cheesy survival horror reminiscent of Eternal Darkness for GC, or Obscure. Graphics are a little rough and the controls suck... but the atmosphere is great, and that is what counts with these types of games.

Regarding compatability issues, Im on windows 7 with and AMD card and a i5 processor and had no issues what so ever, other than an arm stretching glitch in one room, which was just silly to me. Nothing game breaking.

Wow what an oldie. I had this on back on the Xbox original consol, it sold as a budget title. So $5 is no bad deal for a trip down memory lane for me. This game is a Resident Evil 1, 2,3 knock off. It does have issues, but most of this is due to the age of the game. The story is solid. The character moves when you need him to. The clues are all laid out. The Settings are fun. I am especially fond of the museum. The grafics are dated and so is the gameplay. The movement especially , no matter what way you are facing you must press up in order for your character to move.
All and all I do recomend the game it is one of those older games that got missed back in the day. If you have an afternoon free and you are waiting for the next big release game, try it is only about $5. If you do not want to pay that I am sure this game will go sale on the big Steam Sales possibly for $1 or less. And it is anly about 600MB. not much room at all, barly took me 3 min. to download. So I say give it a try.

It's an old game, but modern horror game developers could learn a thing or two from this era.. definite gem. Only minor problems with the game, controls seem a little clunky at first but they don't take much to adapt to. It's been awhile since a game truly gave me the feel of suspense without resorting to jump scares, gore or even music. the ambiencde is subtle but effective.I'm not even a horror gamer, the only game that I'd play is the Last of Us and that was probably the worst i went, as creepy as some others may be they don't achieve what these 2 games do.

A fun little horror/adventure game if you don't mind some clunky controls. Buy on sale, though it's pretty cheap to begin with.

Has a good "older game" feel to it. Runs smooth too.

Game looks really cool.

Its just a shame that no settings adjustment, compatibility mode tweak, or CURSEs directed at steam for selling games that won't run will make this game run.

Third game in a row Iv'e bought from steam that absolutely will not run.

A survival horror game that the atmosphere on the game is spot on. The controls may be a little meh but you can change buttons to your own preferences. The game may be overlooked but it is a classic gem. The background noises in the game are eerie and bone chilling. The con i have about this game is the game doesn't like Steam overlay and the In-game status always crashes and it tells you you're not even playing the game even though you are but it's not that big of a deal. But I wished that they fixed that. Besides that, Curse: The Eye of Isis is an awesome survival horror game. I definitely recommend trying out this game.
