If you start your turn looking at Cursed Village and four +1-Action cards, you can play them all then play Cursed Village for +6 Cards, +2 Actions.

I'm glad you said it. It seemed like the detractors were implying that at best Cursed Village is equivalent to a Lost City, which just isn't true. Of course, Lost City is reliable at what it does whereas Cursed Village is more variable.

As for the question of whether I'd rather give my opponents +1 Card or receive a Hex on-buy, I think at this point in time I'm inclined to say I'd rather give my opponents +1 Card than have to take the Hex. Although that could change as I get a better feel for the Hexes. I will say, it seems like the first Hex of any turn is the most painful and giving out multiple yields diminishing returns. When I've bought Cursed Villages, that Hex tends to be the first one I've received on the turn, but maybe Cursed Village would hurt less if you happened to also be building a deck with Leprechaun. Dunno.

Cursed Village is great with disappearing money like Festival, Courtier, Harvest (which is at least a terminal Gold in most cases), and Minion. There are also interesting combinations with some handsize reducers, including Oasis, and of course, Storeroom! (And it may be also nice with some handsize reducing trashers like Forge/Chapel/Junk Dealer/Forager/Salvager.) I really love this card.

I haven't played as much with Cursed Village itself, but extrapolating from my experience with the (fan) Seasons card Sanitarium, it's pretty strong. I still like Sanitarium at 4$, but yeah, that fixed draw can be amazing.

I had a fun game with CV, Plaza, Artificer and Horse Traders recently.

There was no real trashing, so my deck was inconsistent, but when it fired it was beautiful.
