If the phrase “survival horror adventure” leaves you slightly shaky and hiding behind your sofa, then leave now. Cursed Mountain for the Wii is not for the faint of heart.

Right, for everybody who remains – if you'll pardon the pun – Cursed Mountain, like all the best survival horrors, begins with a simple idea: you play Eric Simmons, you need to find your brother, Frank, lost in the Himalayas. Specifically you have to conquer the sacred mountain of Chomolonzo. See, simple.

Except, of course, this Wii exclusive has many hidden and terrifying secrets. You could begin with the fact that even preparing for the trip throws up a spooky video... which our hero discovers... and which features himself!

Things go from this level of weird to scary to plain terrifying as you guide your character further into the mountain and its secrets. This is not simply a game to frighten for the sake of it though, Deep Silver and developer Sproing Interactive have researched Tibetan Buddhism to provide a rich and involving background in front of which a mesmerising story combines with game play that can test not only your brain and gaming skills but also your spirit.

Atmospheric and haunting music accompanies some of the most sumptous graphics ever seen on the Wii. And your mountain climbing, uncovering of secrets, combat - and you have to hope eventual victory over the spirits that guard Chomolonzo - are all to be carried out with the Wii motion controller to really send those chills (and it's a cold as hell up on the cursed mountain) up and down your spine.
