Cursed Mountain takes gamers back to the late '80s and puts them in the role of Eric Simmons, a mountaineer who has trekked to the Himalayan mountain Chomolonzo in order to investigate the disappearance of his reckless younger brother. Not only must Simmons contend with the brutal forces of nature at 20,000 feet, but he must also do battle with the cursed souls of dead adventurers, villagers, and Buddhist monks who did not properly respect the mountain, and have been left in limbo in the Shadow World. Players must use the Wii Remote's motion controls to climb and fight enemies, and Deep Silver claims its graphics engine, combined with the mountain's top-of-the-world vantage point, lets players view the entire game world at all times. The "Limited Edition" comes in a special case and includes a 15-song music sountrack as well as a five-part "Making Of" DVD. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
