The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation Reviews
While imperfect, The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation combines much of what made older horror games memorable with some welcome modern ideas.
The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation has areas that are great, especially when it is setting atmosphere. I felt the initial section of the game should have provided some direction, which would have reduced the early frustration. The jump scares are for the most part well-done, unexpected, but effective. The initial frustration really set the tone of what to expect in the first hour. I did not enjoy the game as much as I had hoped.
Despite some caveats, The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is a good example of what the Asian horror has to offer. With an instigating narrative that delves into each of its six characters and explores the curse origins, the game is a solid choice for fans of the genre.

Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is a competent horror title that won’t be for everyone. It’s not traditionally scary, but the engaging premise and structure make it worth seeing. There are quite a few rough edges, but the strong central mystery to unravel makes it worthwhile.
The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is easily one of the better indie horror games of the past decade. It doesn’t overstay its welcome, has a decent narrative, and has some genuine horror bits if you’re willing to put in the work. I would even argue that Softstar Entertainment would’ve been a better choice to remake Silent Hill 2 after jumping into my first entry from them.
