If you’re unfamiliar with Corpse Party, you’re missing out. This version of the game is a remake of original 1996 PC release that never made it to the U.S. and it contains some of the most horrific moments I’ve ever experienced in gaming. With a

After some research into the previous U.S. Released Corpse Party Blood Covered: Repeated Fear, I do have to agree that this PC version is not the best Corpse Party experience. The voice acting leaves a lot to be said (literally) as it is really only present for important plot points, after that it becomes sparse and I couldn't make much sense about how they chose when to add it in. The character sprites seemed to me to be acceptable, but I can see how some people would consider this another drastic failure when compared to the PsP version sprites. They are just more lively. I personally really liked that I could start at any of the five chapters from the start of the game instead of having to unlock them first. I also loved experiencing the different and mostly brutally tragic endings to each chapter. Completionists will probably want to discover all of the bad endings as well.
Overall I found that I became surprisingly attached to the characters in this game. The overall story is very well written while some of the dialogue could use work. My heart rate was elevated more times than I could count (which I contribute to good music) and I found myself wanting to get home from work and help these poor kids. While this is by no means the best version of the game to play, I highly recommend that any horror game buff add this to their collection. It is well worth your time and it was super fun wearing headphones and turning out the lights to complete the experience.
