48. Corpse Killer - Saturn - April 11*

Image

Having played through Corpse Killer on Sega CD 32X, I figured I might as well replay it on Saturn to compare the two versions I own. As oone would expect, the two games are almost identical. They are, after all, the same game just on different generations of hardware. There are some major differences between CD 32X and Saturn that are worth noting, however, both good and bad.

Image

The most noticeable difference going from CD 32X to Saturn is the boost to performance. Whereas the Sega CD and Sega CD 32X has noticeable and regular frame stutters (especially the latter), the Saturn version has smooth scrolling that, from what I could tell, rarely if ever breaks from a solid 30 fps. It sounds minute, and you don't realize how much nicer and smoother it is until you compare the two directly, but it really is a big improvement. Much less drastic but still noteworthy are the improvements to video quality. Being a beefier system, the quality of the video clips is improved quite a bit although the boost isn't as immediately noticeable or as significant as the improvement to performance.

Image

There are a handful of other changes that are much more minor. A difficulty setting has been added in case you want to play that's both really bad AND impossible to beat. There are now zombies that pop up right in your face and cover the whole screen in a lame attempt at a jump scare. They also added in English subtitles since the Rastafarian driver's dialogue definitely doesn't count as English in my book. Unfortunately the biggest change made in the jump to Saturn was negative - the control options. Unlike on Sega CD, Sega CD 32X, and 3DO, you can't use a light gun on the Saturn version. Forget the fact that the Saturn has a FANTASTIC light gun and in fact was the best system until the Wii for light gun games. They don't let you use one at all. You're stuck with your frankly useless controller D-pad to aim. Had they allowed you to use a light gun for the game, this would definitely be the definitive console version of the (admittedly crappy even on a good day) game, but they just ruined it with that one change.

Image

Corpse Killer on the Saturn isn't any less terrible than it was on the Sega CD 32X. There are some definite improvements - the visuals are much clearer, the performance is much improved, and the addition of subtitles and difficulty settings are nice bonuses - but the removal of light gun support detracts FAR more than the aforementioned improvements added. Even despite the inferior visuals and lower performance stability, I'd take the Sega CD 32X version over the Saturn version of this game any day. Of course, I'd rather just avoid the game entirely because it's a steaming pile of crap.

I love MegaTen, I just have next to no interest in anything "in the series" made after Okada Kouji left Atlus. I'd probably rather gag myself than play/talk about Persona 3/4/5, or (shudder) #FE.

#FE is awesome.

FC5 is a lot of fun, even if the story ends up only offering the standard Far Cry series fluff. I don't know that any game in the series has surpassed Far Cry 2 in terms of overall design and the "feel" of traversal and battle...but this one is a lot of fun and well worth your time if you've liked any of the previous entries in the series.

I read that the ending is insane. What were your thoughts on it?

I don't know that I'd classify it as "insane" - it was one of the more interesting narrative components of the game if only because it was unexpected, but it wasn't anything earth shattering...

I've heard it was dumbed down to help the game have a greater mass appeal instead of driving home an actual message in the way that FarCry 2 does about the long standing after effects of colonization.

It wasn't dumbed down just Atlus made costume changes. People who were never going to buy the game spread BS and got all upset esp over 1 part that is in the game as a side mission for all of 90 seconds. I mean it,90 seconds. The only real issue is Atlus did a crap job of trying to change it. Instead of making a new dress they just made her skin white to blend with the dress. Atlus localized the game and just made it have less titty. They also I think removed 1 side mission because it seemed pervy to a 16 year old girl I think. The main story is still the same. The core game is there and a damn fun and charming game overall. I liked it more than persona 5 and I loved Persona 5. Not saying better but it is a really good game. I normally couldn't care less about idol culture, something I know next to nothing about frankly. Just it has really fun characters, some fun side missions, and a fun story. Dungeons are better than any Persona dungeon to that point. Turn-based system is excellent. Really well done and I like the redesigned SMT enemies.
