The Curse of the Nordic Cove is a story-centric Survival-Horror game with several familiar elements of gameplay for all gaming fans from First Person Shooter, Sports, Puzzle-Solving, Driving, Strategic Shooting, Stealth and Dungeon Crawling. Jason Schreier of Kotaku said, "...this golf-simulator-slash-action--adventure title thinks outside the box. I saw it on the PAX East show floor last weekend and thought it was so bizarre, I had to tape it". Curtis Stone form Front Towards Gamer wrote, "The Curse of Nordic Cove is a very unique title set in a world unlike anything you've probably seen or played before. Combining your golf (yes, golf) skills with your surely honed fps talents to create a title that is borderline insanity... in a good way".
