For the first time in its short history as a developer, the Japanese company Feelplus is launching into the horror genre on Wii. Ju-On The Grudge, the video game adaptation of director Takashi Shimizu's films. We know that when you think of horror games, Nintendo is far from the first thing that comes to mind, much less the Wii as it's such a family-friendly and joyful console. But there's something special about the Wii controllers and visuals that maybe could serve in favor of the horror genre. So, what’s the deal with the Ju-On The Grudge video game? Well, let’s talk about it.

About the game

The title tells the story of some of these people who reach a place where they should never have arrived, and find themselves face to face with the wrath of the woman's specter, causing the worst ending of all: death. Throughout the title we will take the role of several characters with two elements in common: they arrive by chance under circumstances to an abandoned or totally empty place and they all carry or get a flashlight.

When accessing a place full of darkness, they realize the succession of strange events, such as the fall of objects to the ground, the appearance of a child intermittently or the irruption of a woman accompanied by an anguished sobbing.

Our goal in each of the stories is to move through all the rooms of a building, sometimes also under the open sky, and find batteries to recharge the battery of the flashlight while trying to follow the clues left by the specters. If the light runs out we are forced to wait for the arrival of Kayako, who will not take long to appear to end our game.

For this reason, the flashlight becomes a fundamental element of the title, and each battery means a small life bar. In fact, without the dosage of light Ju-On would not be a horror game, and the scares would cease to exist to become simple apparitions and strange sounds without any logic.

A great use of environment

One of the key elements in anything horror related is how to build an atmosphere, as it is also something that can create expectative. It can bring the player to the edge of their seat, and even if there’s no shocking moment that comes after the tension, this tension alone can be the most important part of the experience.

A series of games that master this part of creating a heavy horror atmosphere were the classic Silent Hill games. Sure, this game is not up to that level, but it has a pretty solid understanding of sound and light, and how to use them. This game is much more similar to titles from the Fatal Frame franchise than it is to the Silent Hill games.


Ju-on: The Grudge presents us with a horror story where we are the protagonists. Armed with a wiimote in hand, we will head towards the scares and a fatal destiny representing several characters in a video game that does not pretend to be more than a guided adventure and without any replayability power. If you're just looking for the occasional moment of terror or you're a fan of the Ju-On: The Grudge movie series, you might be interested in the new Feelplus. The game can be quite disappointing if you’re expecting a recreation of the movie, or if you’re expecting little more than a haunted house experience.
