I just recived this game in the mail today and I wont be buying it. I recommend renting it first. The controls are pretty easy to grasp but the game play itself is CONFUSING. I just spent the last 4 hous wandering through the same boring hallway, not interesting at all, of a school with 5 levels. You need to keep going to the same ones over and over again to find things in rooms. Your supposed to have clues as to what your supposed to be looking for but they are few and far between. As for horror, there is little if none. Nothing to keep you entertained or scare you a little while you rack your brain trying to figure out where your even supposed to be going. The controls are lousy as the sensor is supposed to light up when you can seldom go into a room, sometimes i missed rooms because the dont light up fast enough only to leave me more confused. I got bored and frustrated so i looked up the walkthrough and realized Id never be able to figure it out without being told what Im looking for. The whole thing makes no sense. Maybe thats the point, being stuck in an alternate reality. However, Id save myself the headace and get off the couch and go ghost hunting in real life. Id prob stand a better chance at a good scare with that. Rent this one first.

I agree with most other reviews where the game is lacking in some departments. However over all the game was very fun to play. There were a few times when I would just randomly wonder around and had no idea what to do or where to go. However towards the end it got a lot easier to navigate/figure out where to go next. The scares are good. Overall this is defiantly a game to pick up for anyone who like scares.

Good

No SHATTERED MEMORIES, but better than JU-ON.

It's not as glitchy as JU-ON THE GRUDGE, but nowhere nearly as well made as SILENT HILL--SHATTERED MEMORIES, or even memorable. That said, CALLING isn't a terrible way to pass the time for a rental. The controls are similar in style to SHATTERED MEMORIES, only not as tight. The graphical presentation is dated, however, and the otherwise interesting cutscenes have a lot of unsynched voice work (at least in English). Even so, CALLING is a pretty interesting concept, and for what it is, I have to give credit to Hudson for trying something new, even if it isn't 100% successful.
