Corpse is a B-grade game that's as fun as a B-grade movie. If you can't keep a good zombie down, you can't keep a pretty good one down, either.
You may dive into Corpse Killer and heavily criticize it. If FMV games pique your interest though, you may be unexpectedly blessed with a fresh new perspective on this genre, and you might just stick it out with a "let's just see how it ends" attitude. Not an impressive game, and I sure as heck wouldn't show it to a girlfriend, but a good choice for FMV fans, scarce as they are.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Full-motion video games are flooding the market, but none of them are very exciting to me. Corpse Killer has some interesting ideas, but they aren't executed well at all. Okay, sure, this is the first 32X CD game out there, but it's still not better than the Sega CD edition, other than some minor video clean-up. If FMV games are your thing, then have fun. As for me, I'll look elsewhere.
The Video Game Critic
Corpse Killer's gameplay is shallow, easy, and not enjoyable at all. Aiming the cursor with control pad is clumsy and inexact, but Sega's Menacer light gun is also supported (in case you own that colossal monstrosity). The interesting locations are the best aspect of the game, including a fort, village, jungle, beach, and graveyard. The pixilated, floating zombies are clearly just superimposed in front of the scenery, and they look awful. Weak sound effects include the same grunt noise for every zombie shot. I do enjoy the bongo drum music however - it seems appropriate. But if you're looking for a playable version of Corpse Killer, seek out the Saturn or 3DO versions.
