    Casual Gamers Need Not Apply

    These days it seems like the Japanese have become the torch-bearers for quality horror movies. Frankly, the American formula was getting a bit old, a bit unimaginative, and a bit too action-oriented. Often times, I canno... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Siren

  • User Rating:7.2

    Siren sounds good, but is a bit 'one-note'

    Essentially a horror version of Loony Toons PSone game 'Sheep, Dog & Wolf' - you play ten characters over three days as each endeavours to find their way out of towns, schools, valleys, graveyards etc.. generally in pitc... Read Full Review

    Most people will agree that the Survival Horror genre is in need of a little change. What else can you expect from a genre that has taken us everywhere, from fighting zombies in decrepit old mansions to prisons and aband... Read Full Review

    I found Siren enjoyable for about 27 minutes. Definitely a rental. The Graphics and sounds are good – good character face models. Sound is spot on as well. Gameplay is very elementary. The way that you can see what ... Read Full Review

    Siren is not everyone's game. You'll either fall in love with it or just leave it to gather dust in your shelf.

    Siren is not your typical survival horror game. Some brand new game mechanics have been introduced in the genre and the game became a "love or hate it" experience. For starters, you do not play as a single character. ... Read Full Review

    Dear lord! Is it SUPPOSED to be impossible?

    I bought this game on the projection of wonderful graphics, interesting story line and creepy atmosphere. In that sense the game was on top. It is beautifully animated and is very eerie to play. I don't recommend pla... Read Full Review

    Without a doubt the most challenging survival horror game I've ever played.

    I'm pretty sure gamespot didn't bother much with the game to give it a 6.7. Siren is probably the most underappreciated survival horror game. I noticed the only reason anyone disliked the game was because it is a bit dif... Read Full Review

    I think this game lived up to its expectations well enough and is being taken as a trial and error game!

    Its a good game really does what its meant to do scare the crap out of you. I enjoyed playing this game its pretty hard to beat I died multipul times before finishing it. And another thing I liked about it was that real ... Read Full Review

    I don't know what to thnk about this game, I like the idea of it but its very challening

    First off I think this is a cool game but it is very challenging. Using the sightjack is a very cool feature but sometimes you HAVE to use it to know were the enemy is, so in other words it requires loads of patience. Al... Read Full Review

    A great survival horror game with an engrossing storyline!

    Siren is a great game. Why do you ask? It is everything a survival horror game should be. Mist, flashlights, and spooky creatures sure give you a chill in this game! Gameplay: 7/10 I think the gameplay in this game i... Read Full Review

    All for one and one for all ...

    When "Siren" first came out I was wary of getting it due to lukewarm reviews and bad word of mouth, but in desperate need of a new game to sink my teeth into, and my love of Japanese folklore, I decided to plunk down my ... Read Full Review
