Review – Corpse Party –

Corpse Party is a Japanese horror game that’s been called “one of the most psychologically frightening games ever made” by IGN. It pushes players to their limits with its twisted story and brutally difficult puzzles, but it has its fair share of critics who say the gameplay lacks variety.

The “corpse party (2021 review)” is a horror game that was released for the Playstation Vita. The game has received positive reviews from critics and players alike, who praise it for its dark atmosphere, innovative gameplay, and the story.

You may not have heard of it, but Corpse Party is a long-running series that proves that if you sincerely believe in something, you can go the distance with it. As odd as it seems, this began as an RPG Maker-developed fan game more than two decades ago, as a proof of concept to prove you could make more than RPGs with that engine. It became a success and generated a series, with sequels, anime, and even commercial releases, such as Marvelous/brand XSEED’s new remake/remaster of the original game.


Oh Japan, you’ll never change…

Corpse Party is an episodic survival horror game about a group of adolescents and one of their instructors from a certain Japanese high school. They attempt to reproduce an urban legend by coming inside their (allegedly haunted) high school late at night and completing a ritual, just like every other foolish adolescent in a horror film. An earthquake strikes, shattering the floor in front of them and transferring them to an other realm filled with ghosts and bodies of people who attempted the same rite before them. It’s up to the youngsters to figure out how to break free from this nightmare, one chapter at a time.

Allow me to get this out of the way straight away: The plot and idea of Corpse Party appealed to me. I was shocked at how well-written each character was, with their own personality, concerns, characteristics, and so on, for a game that was so old and so cheaply built. Even though they’re only RPG Maker-style sprites strolling about onscreen, you can easily interact with them. The game’s voice acting is likewise of high quality, with the game being jam-packed with it, even if some of it is masked by the game’s music owing to some poor audio mixing. Although the music is enjoyable even for those who do not speak Japanese, I would have like to be able to hear the conversation.


Although Corpse Party is not frightening, it may be unpleasant at times.

This is precisely what was promised twenty-five years ago in terms of gameplay: an effort to develop a puzzle-focused survival horror game on a JRPG engine. This game is all about solving minor puzzles and searching for things on a 16-bit JRPG-styled map while coping with the limits and drawbacks of an old RPG Maker release, such as stuttering framerates and rigid controls. Given the game’s sluggish pace and emphasis on exploration, this isn’t strictly a deal breaker, particularly if you’re playing it on the go, but be aware of the limits. Due to its convoluted and consequential nature, Corpse Party urges you to generate several save states, so be prepared to backtrack and make a lot of errors.

Is it frightening? It’s not too bad, although it may become a little tight at times. Being trapped in a room with little resources and having to cope with a group of screaming teens isn’t shiver-inducing, but it may make your pulse race. It all comes down to the aforementioned bond between the characters. They aren’t evil kids, despite their dumb original goals, and you don’t want to see them locked in a parallel limbo for the rest of their lives. The game’s chapter structure also allows each character to have adequate screen time to show off their fears and talents. Because each episode is around two hours long, it fits wonderfully on a portable like the Switch.


To save your game, click the candle. Create numerous save files as well. It’s all about trial and error in this game.

Corpse Party is a really basic game, and it may be a little janky at times, but it has a lot of personality and heart. Despite its 16-bit graphics and simple gameplay, it manages to provide a gripping survival horror experience despite the restrictions of an ancient technology. It is, however, quite repetitious and confusing, so expect a lot of trial-and-error parts. If it doesn’t concern you and you’re searching for a unique twist on the survival horror genre, this is the film for you. You could do a lot worse, particularly if you’re playing on the Nintendo Switch.


It has the same graphic aesthetic as the original Corpse Party games. As in, it seems to have been created using RPG Maker, with a few additional hand-drawn stills tossed in for good measure.

It’s a survival horror game with the eyes and controls of a classic RPG Maker game. This features a clumsy movement mechanism as well.

There is a lot of voice acting, but owing to poor audio mixing, it is frequently overpowered by the music. Fortunately, the music isn’t horrible at all.

It’s really basic and clumsy, yet it’s quite beautifully written. Its chapter-based plot is ideal for a handheld, since each chapter can be completed in about two hours.

Final Score: 7.0

Corpse Party is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

On Switch, the game was reviewed.
