Siren: Blood Curse is a Shooting game available on the PS3.
Siren: Blood Curse is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's 2004 survival horror game Siren underwent a remake in 2008. Along with the expected graphical overhaul Siren: Blood Curse also received improved voice acting and a few changes to the story. These updates aimed to maintain the tension of the original game while updating it for the PS3.
Coming back into gaming after missing a good portion of the noughties, I was newbie to the recent survival based horror games that had been floating around the market. The closest I had got was watching the excellent Resident Evil trilogy of films. Siren: Blood Curse promised to give me a glimpse into what I'd been missing.
In a previous life, I had always been of fan of such games, particularly the legendary Doom. But sadly, I went off horror one evening around 1994. A friend and I had been watching retro horror (Halloween, Poltergeist etc) and were scared witless when we heard the back door being tried. After recovering our composure, we belted round the house locking every door and window. We never did get to the bottom of that either. A few days later, after watching hell raiser, a brick was thrown down our side alleyway. After that, horror took a back seat for a while.
