The Press Says

Technically solid, the game suffers from a lack of character customization, lack of suspense and overly long cutscenes. The combat system and multiplayer mode are reasonably good, so there's visible potential. Maybe we'll a second Cursed Crusade in the not too far future that learns from this game's mistakes – I'd be pleased.
The Cursed Crusade has a lot of potential, it could have been an excellent game, but it’s a budget title at the end of the day, and you can’t get your hopes up if your going to buy it. You’ll get your money’s worth if you’re looking for a cheap gory adventure, just make sure you mind the cheapest deal available.

Die ständigen Verschiebungen im Vorfeld waren kein gutes Omen -- tatsächlich hätte The Cursed Crusade eine weitere Verschiebung richtig gut getan. Das Spiel wirkt, als habe man es den Entwicklern einfach unfertig entrissen, auf DVD gepresst und in die Läden gestellt. Ich habe zwar ein Herz für Kreuzritter und mittelalterliche Gemetzel, doch mit The Cursed Crusade hatte ich keinen Spaß. Vielmehr standen mir über die gesamte Spieldauer Tränen in den Augen, weil das große Potenzial des Konzepts nicht annähernd genutzt wird.

Purtroppo, pur condividendo le umili origini, The Cursed Crusade non appartiene a questa categoria di prodotti: per quanto gli elementi per un buon mix ci fossero tutti, l’evidente mancanza di una precisa direzione durante lo sviluppo ha dato i natali a una produzione che sembra afflitta da una maledizione, proprio come i suoi protagonisti. Qualsiasi elemento della formula, anche i più interessanti, nasconde un pesante difetto, rendendo impossibile una fruizione godibile del titolo, neanche in compagnia di un amico. Un titolo che non possiamo proprio consigliarvi, a meno di non avere una passione sfrenata per il periodo storico di riferimento. In quest’ultimo caso, aspettate perlomeno un prezzo più consono ai bassi valori produttivi.

Казавшийся занятным сюжет утомляет уже на середине, атмосферу губит огромное количество «багов», сражения тоже не выдержали их могучего напора. При должном старании The Cursed Crusade была бы бриллиантом колюще-режущего жанра, однако что-то не срослось.
The Cursed Crusade mohla být docela slušná hra, kdyby se jen vývojáři trochu víc snažili. S tak velkým množstvím chyb, přešlapů a naprosto zbytečných kiksů však nesahá ani po průměrném hodnocení. Na otázku, zda má smysl The Cursed Crusade hrát, se nabízí velmi jednoduchá odpověď. Určitě ano, pokud patříte k příznivcům středověku a je vám úplně jedno, že tvůrci rezignovali na elementární slušnost vydat bezproblémovou hru.
