Orson Welles once said the enemy of art is the absence of limitations and that rings true for Corpse Party. A game made decades ago on outdated RPG Maker software is as successful in achieving its vision today as it always was because the creator used the limited palette effectively. The reliance on imagination and familiarity with Japanese horror influences present in Corpse Party aren’t going to resonate universally, but some of that horror defies cultural barriers and speaks to the human condition.

Like 1999's The Blair Witch Project, Corpse Party is the video game equivalent of a smaller, art-house horror flick that made it to the big screens and became a surprise hit. There is no excuse to skip this game because it is available in some way, shape, or form on multiple platforms. As for which version is best, each version has idiosyncratic features so it mostly boils down to what your preferred platform is, though the 3DS version has the most bonus storyline content. Corpse Party is far from perfect, and horror veterans may not find it as chilling as I did, but I heartily recommend checking it out.

From beginning to end I was completely entranced by these kids' quest to escape the horrors of Heavenly Host. Corpse Party has a timeless story built around solid characters and a genuinely creepy setting that is able to buoy its sometimes outdated gameplay.

All told, we loved Corpse Party. Its narrative focus naturally means that this isn't a game for everyone, but it's nice to experience something a little different like this. Still, Corpse Party does show its age in some parts (as it's an expansion of a PSP original); the irritating instances that torch long sections of progress are unwelcome and a bit too frequent, bogging down an otherwise effective plot. Yet despite this we still give this game a strong recommendation; it should be tempting to anybody who's interested in reading a great horror story in a more hands-on, interactive fashion. It doesn't get much better than Corpse Party in that respect - this is a well-crafted, creepy tale you won't want to miss.

Não sendo definitivamente um jogo para todos, Corpse Party vem colmatar um grande buraco na oferta de terror no catálogo da consola. Um estilo visual único e uma componente sonora de excelência mergulham o jogador na tenebrosa jornada de sobrevivência, mistério e desespero dos estudantes de Heavenly Host Elementary. Mesmo com alguns problemas de estrutura de jogabilidade e desenvolvimento da narrativa, Corpse Party é um que todos os fãs do género não vão querer perder.
Worth Playing (Nov 03, 2016)
Corpse Party for the 3DS is an engaging horror title that is more than the sum of its parts. Solid writing and top-notch sound design elevate basic visuals into something more. If you're a fan of Japanese-style horror writing, there's a lot to like here. It can occasionally devolve into the ridiculous or repetitive, but there are enough genuine moments of horror to help the game over its weak points. Given the flaws and lack of replay value, however, it's difficult to give this title a full-on recommendation. If you're in the market for something spooky, Corpse Party is a good bet, but it isn't a game for everyone.

Come molte riedizioni viste negli ultimi mesi, Corpse Party riesce ad essere, contemporaneamente, la migliore versione del gioco disponibile e un'occasione persa per rendere il porting davvero memorabile: l'unicità del titolo nell'attuale panorama videoludico, in particolare se si parla di console Nintendo, la grande atmosfera di gioco, la qualità dell'audio tridimensionale concorrono a rendere il titolo consigliato a quanti non l'avessero mai provato.
