The Cursed Crusade is a game I picked up after reading a few reviews that said that it was rough around the edges, but nevertheless one of those gems that flew under the radar. It’s not a gem, though. In fact, apart from its combat system which is only slightly enjoyable at best, it’s little more than a bunch of QTE sequences broken apart by frantic searches for new weapons that may or may not have fallen through the ground after the one you’re using breaks. Fortunately for fans of tedium and things that make absolutely no sense, all weapons in the game break after using them against 3-4 enemies, so these frantic searches are every bit as frequent as they are annoying. Then there’s the story, which goes out of its way to explain nothing about your curse, even going so far as to suddenly end before a single plot thread is resolved. This game is truly the bottom of the barrel.
