Review: Corpse Party – Book of Shadows

I was just remembering the last time I played Dead Space. You know, when I pointed a gun at a necromorph… and shot it! Man, that was some intense shit, dude. Did you know it’s better with Kinect? *ka-ching* Thanks EA. *sniffs money* What do you mean, I’m a little late for that joke? What joke? Am I missing something?

So yeah, horror games. Strange subject that is. Some build up the tension by having a creepy atmosphere, some surprise you with jump scares and others just freak you out with cruel footage. But they all have one thing in common: the mystery surrounding the game ceases a little after the first game, and you’re left with just mostly violence. Is that the case for Book of Shadows as well? Let’s look into it. And don’t worry, just like with the review about the first game, I won’t spoil anything.

I mean, you did read that review and then played the game, right? You better do it and return afterwards, or Nana’ll get mad. JonTron reference anyone? No? Okay…

Review: Corpse Party – Blood Covered

(A notice of warning: most of the links in this blog lead you to YouTube videos that don’t have anything to do with the review. Only access them if you are bored and in a safe place. Seriously, check before you click. You have been warned.)

Oh shit, I have a bag of milky ways!

Happy Halloween y’all! Let’s celebrate this day by… what, it’s spring? … But… but I’m reviewing a horror game… Alright, I… I can do this. I’m… I’m not starting to cry because of something small like this… It’s not Halloween, that’s perfectly fine… *sob*

… What do you mean, you can’t hear voice inflections in text? … Whatever. Now what is this actually all about? Corpse Party – Blood Covered is a horror adventure game for the PSP, available on PSN. The original version being made in 1996, it returned as this remake in 2008 for PC, and 2011 for the PSP. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything important in my review. You should also be over 16 years old before reading on, it could get a bit bloody. This game, despite having 2D graphics, anime artwork and rather easy gameplay, was able to freak me out way more than most other horror titles. Both the atmosphere and the story are just great, and… why am I even talking about it? Play it!
