אז אם אתם חובבי יריות, או שאין לכם מבחר גדול מדי לרובה שברשותכם, קחו את המשחק הזה לידיים, לאחרים מומלץ לחכות למשחק יריות קצת יותר משובח!

The game is not without it's problems. It's exciting when zombies are flying at you from every direction (yes, they fly!), but you'll see the same backgrounds over and over. Except for the zombies in "gangsta' gear", they all start to look the same. And where are the female zombies? And why is Captain Cooper so manly? I get tired of looking at his face (his face measures your health, the same as in Doom). Anyway, it's a good shooter. You might be tired of it after a while, but it's a lot of fun until you do.

Alternant entre shoot-them-up (possibilité de jouer avec le pistolet) et séquences filmées autour de la visite guidée de Cay Noir, l'île maudite, ce jeu peut paraître amusant et captivant pendant la première demi-heure. Ce délai écoule, le joueur tourne en rond et ne tarde pas à zapper les séquences intermédiaires, identiques à la longue, pour aller directement au cœur d'une action qui devient vite répétitive et barbante. Quant aux amateurs de séries Z en tout genre, ils apprécieront, comme moi, l'atmosphère franchement glauque de l'histoire.

Corpse Killer...appallingly mundane or fiendishly clever? Take your pick. Hardcore shoot-em-up vets will scream at the zombie-paced zombie zapping, but as a drive-in horror flick sendoff, Corpse Killer might wake the dead.

Game Players
If you're a big fan of shooters, then Corpse Killer is a very fine choice. On the whole, Corpse Killer shows great advances in combining video and games, but until there's more gameplay to the game, I think I'll continue to watch my movies and play my games.

Corpse Killer is one of the shining examples of the genre. No wait, don't laugh yet. Night Trap was the perfect introduction, and the voyeuristic gameplay made the most sense for telling a story in cinematic language while trying to maintain some level of gamer control. It sucked as a game, and the second-generation titles tried to remedy that. You can see here how this is a standard arcade shooter, but with FMV characters and FMV cutscenes. It has enough "gamey" elements to make it a title worth existing, and the interactive movie parts support the game rather than attempt to replace it. That is about the nicest thing that can be said for such "interactive movies." It's really your call as to whether you want to consider that praise or not.

Mega Fun
Wer ein Fan von interaktiven Spielfilmchen ist, wird vor allem von der 32X-Version begeistert sein, die in den Zwischensequenzen recht ordentliche und detaillierte Grafik rüberbringt. Ansonsten gleichen sich beide Fassungen wie ein Ei dem anderen und bieten Shoot’em Up-Action, wie es astreiner kaum sein könnte. Wer keinen Menacer besitzt, muß aber nicht verzweifeln, denn auch mit dem Pad läßt sich das Spiel ganz gut steuern. Wer jetzt gleich zum nächsten Händler rennt sei gewarnt, denn wer keine guten Englischkenntnisse mitbringt. wird die Story und die zahlreichen Tips nur schwerlich verstehen können. Außerdem bietet das Game auch spielerisch im Grunde nicht die Welt und wird auf Dauer doch recht langweilig. Inhaltlich gibt sich Corpse Killer zudem unnötig brutal, und die Zombies lassen sich auch kaum von Menschen unterscheiden.

I found myself almost ready to recommend Corpse Killer for the lengthy narrative, but I can't give a pass to the rote gameplay. At the same time, I'm happy to play another game that supports Sega's Menacer. It may be a terribly flawed game, but Corpse Killer is not without a certain endearing charm.

The Video Game Critic
Corpse Killer is not a good game by any stretch of the imagination, but if you're fascinated by FMV games, this is an interesting relic.
