The Calling (Wii)

Postby VideoGameCritic » October 11th, 2017, 9:36 pm

This is pretty interesting survival horror game that lets you use your Wiimote like a cell phone. When you hear a static-y voice on that thing, your blood will run cold.

Sadly, the motion controls are a lot less natural. I have a hard time navigating dark hallways with a ghost on my ass.

I've never even heard of this.

The Critics hated this on Metacritic, but the reader review score on GameFaqs is much higher and has a decent sample size with 76 people grading it. It looks very intriguing on YouTube, so I tend to believe that this one was treated a bit harshly by the media. I'll have to grab it one of these days and see for myself.

Have you ever tried Ju-on for the Wii? I've never heard of it, but YouTube suggested it after I checked out the Calling. Looks like that one also has possibilities.

I love horror games for the Wii, I'm think the remote is often used in a nice way. I was/am really interested into this one too, but I found the game pretty hard to find. Is it rare? Did you pay much?
