Can anyone help me out with buying this game, it's kind of confusing for any sort of idiot like me. On PSN there is Siren Blood Curse for ~ £5 and then there are four siren chapters for ~ £8 each. In the description if the chapters it says you can buy all the chapters in one bundle however the only thing that looks like a siren bundle is the Siren Blood Curse game which is cheaper than a single chapter. What is the bundle and what I'd Siren Blood Curse?

I remember playing the trial and finding it OK.
This video has got me tempted to buy it
I rented it a few months ago and tried but failed to get into it.
It just controls badly and therefore makes combat unbearable. Sort of like the Silent Hill games, but without the (mostly) interesting stories.
Pick it up. It's great. It has some very interesting characters and is creepy as fook.

Is it a requirement of the genre that these games must have frustrating as hell controls/camera. Bought this yesterday and just seemed to stumble through the first episode. Couldn't see where I was meant to be going most of the time and couldn't control the guy properly when I could.
Think I managed to get killed about 5 times in what is meant that to be a tutorial level...
Edit: and from what reviews say this was a vastly improved control/camera system from previous releases!

I think they went a little too far with the clunkiness. I felt the exact same way, and was about to shelve it after the first level.
Believe it or not though you do get used to it, and you eventually realise that the controls and camera are the way they are to enforce a slower pace from the player. But I think they could still have found a way for it to be a lot less clunky and still had a similar effect on pacing and tension.
If you like survival horror though, stick with it for a bit. It really is genuinely scary.

I've struggled with it but not given it a proper go yet. Found the opening section very hard to negotiate, not only due to controls but it's so difficult to see where to go.
What exactly are the controls doing that people have difficulty with?
Push the stick in the direction you want to go, how much more help do you need? Has modern game design dragged us down to point where every third person game has to have the same controls?
It's amazing, you've completely fixed the problem for me. Thanks!
One satisfied customer.
It's very clunky, and totally awesome.

It's very good. I found it only somewhat clunky. The first 10 minutes were very disorienting, but it was all fun from then on.

I love all 3 games. The second is prob my fav, although I never did complete 3. They are indeed clunky, but listen to the King
