I've read a lot of bad reviews about this game. Some comments are justified - movement of your character through the game environment is slow and it's frustrating to have to retry failed levels from the beginning.

The game isn't in the Silent Hill/Resident Evil genre so don't buy it if that's what you're hoping for. Grudge can simply be described a fairground haunted house simulator and works well on that level.

This game is an interesting game to play but it has its flaws. The controls, especially the flashlight, is terrible to control and it often decides to not follow your directions with the Wii remote and you spend a lot of time trying to get it to go where you want it to go. It is also horrendous to try and turn around as you wait forever. The game for a single player is not especially scary; you have to rely on the game for the scares which you kind of get used to. However in two-player mode, the second player is able to create random scares with their Wii remote to scare player one, making the game scarier and less predictable. It is a very short game (I think people say it takes around 1 1/2 hours in total) so that makes it slightly less apealing as you get into it and then it ends.
Personally, I would only really play this game with friends at a party or around Halloween time as single-player isn't that fun. I would peg this game at around £10-15 at most just because of how short it is.

Only buy this if it is really cheap.
It is quite scary if your playing in the dark but also quite short.

Great fun but too short hence 4 stars not 5. A little pricey considering the length but worth a play. Turn the lights down and volume up for some good jump scares.

I like off the wall games, I like HK Horror movies. I loved the abandoned spookiness of the Fatal Frame series, so this sounded like it might be worth a run out on the Wii. Unfortunately, Ju-on is simply a very poor game in just about every respect. There is barely a scare to be discovered. Sometimes its hard to tell if you're playing the game or in the middle of a pre-calculated sequence, The control system is shocking, I'll give the developers that, but the whole thing just doesn't seem like a finished product, more the kind of rough mock up of a game you'd take to pitch, in the hope someone will give you a contract to develop the idea further. I am not familiar with the movie(s), so can't tell you how they stand against the source material, but I can't imagine this game will win over many new fans to the genre or franchise.

Very odd that Nintendo see fit to give this game a PAL release when Fatal Frame IV won't be seen outside Japan. I really wanted to enjoy this game, but unfortunately, it's a one star. Wouldn't recommend it, even if you are a fan of survival horrors. Seems like a game that should have been out in the N64 era.

I am now, and have been for quite a while, a big fan of the survival horror genre, such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Siren: Blood Curse and so on. And as my other half owns a Wii, and I love the original Japanese horror film of the same name, I thought I would give this game a try to see what it is like.
And, I am afraid its bad news. It is arguably the worst game of its kind I have played - maybe ever. Why is it so bad you ask? Well, the fact of the matter is it is a poorly designed, poorly presented, not scary, has poor uninspired graphics (blocky, pixelated and lots of pop in and pop up) there is no music to speak of, sound is very generic and annoying, its very slow and painful to play, so much so that you will want to throw the controller at the wall. The levels are linear, dull and boring. And it will only take you 3 and a half hours to complete and you have no reason to play it again if you die mid-level let alone come back and do it all over again for fun. Overall, a very poor game that is best avoided, even by the biggest of fans of the films. I am off to try the Silent Hill (Wii) game now and expect my review soon.

This is so scary! I jumped so much whilst playing this. The person's movements are a little slow but aren't too slow. I played a level twice and even when I knew what was coming, I still jumped! That's the good thing about this game, it scares you even when you play it again and again :)

If you can get this game cheap, dont mind slow games, and have a sense of hummer, I would say give it a go.

I have been playing video games since Pong, and have been a fan of Survival Horror from the begining. Yes it is no Resident Evil, Silent Hill, or Fatel Frame (Shame on you Nintendo for not releasing Fatel Frame IV outside of Japan).

There has been a lot of rubbish games, supposedly being survival horror, and by no means is this anywhere near as bad as some.

I would recomend playing it in the dark, with headphones on.
