An American crew of documentary filmmakers travel to Japan to investigate a 'disappeared' village, only to find that its residents have become bloodthirsty abominations. Siren: Blood Curse is a re-imagination of the original Forbidden Siren released on the PlayStation 2 in 2003.
Siren: Blood Curse is an action-adventure game with survival horror elements. While controlling seven different characters in short snippets (as if they were episodes in a TV series-- very much like Alan Wake did in early 2010), you move around town, avoiding and hiding from the Shibito villagers who have turned ravenous. You can 'sightjack' these villagers with some characters by using the L2 button, allowing you to see -- via split-screen -- what they see. You can also swing melee weapons and shoot firearms via a targeting system.
Blood Curse is available in North America only through the PlayStation Store. There are twelve episodes of the game, and you can opt to buy all twelve for $39.99, or in four-episode chunks (1-4, 5-8, 9-12) for $14.99. A disc version was released in Japan, Asia, and Europe regions. The Asian version features English voice audio and subtitles.
