Anyone who read the review I wrote for this very likely saw this one coming (the longest one of these reviews I've ever written, coming in at just over 3000 words). A decent horror story buried under a mountain of clunky controls, perverse serialization, and crude localization choices, I don't think Corpse Party will be a game I will ever forget for just how much I disliked playing it. I certainly realize that there are games who do the things this one does but worse, and I don't care because I see those as nothing but garbage for the same reasons. Sexualization of minors is a horrifically commonplace problem in the anime industry, and while I'm certainly not going to conquer that issue myself, I very much hope that Corpse Party is the last of that I ever have to be exposed to personally.


I'm tempted to play this sometime soon based on your (lack of) recommendation.

For someone who has played more dating sim-y VN's based around school-age characters, I imagine Corpse Party will probably come off less badly than it did for me. Regardless, if you do end up trying it out, I look forward to hearing what you think about it~

Thanks! ^w^
I'm gonna keep writing them as long as I keep enjoying writing them, and that doesn't seem to be changing, thankfully. I'm glad you enjoy reading them! I'll admit I mostly write my reviews as an exercise to help organize my own thoughts, but knowing that people do read them sometimes is a really nice feeling :mrgreen:
