Corpse Party is a pretty good mix of a visual novel and survival-horror games. While the gameplay itself can get a little dull at times as you wander the halls of the school and try to interact with just about everything, the story is rather enjoyable and unique. Wear some headphones and turn out the lights to complete the experience.
Corpse Party is a faithful port of the original PC version, but that's not enough when the PSP remake added so much more to the experience. The extra chapters are a nice addition, though, and make it a decent buy for diehard Corpse Party fans. Just don't expect to be scared.
In my 10-12 hour time with Corpse Party (and the handful of endings I stumbled upon), I had lost a handful of friends and witnessed a fair amount of frights. More importantly, the twenty year-old game delivered on a captivating ghost story, fit for the most veteran horror-buffs. And while the art style and themes may turn a few people off, the game is a rewarding, terrifying experience that shows the limits of what a well-told story can accomplish in spite of its artstyle’s limitations.
