Review: Corpse Party photo
Review: Corpse Party
by Chris Walden

It's a shame that the humble visual novel so rarely sees a release outside of Japan. Games like those in the Ace Attorney series have helped generate interest out here in the west, but they are still far from commonplace. However, companies like XSEED Games are helping resolve this issue via localisation. It's something, as a huge fan of visual novels, that I can get behind. 

You may have heard of the recently released Corpse Party, especially if you've read through the interviews that Elliot posted up a few months back. Many of us over at Japanator, myself included, have been eagerly anticipating its release. So, the big question rears it's ugly head. Does the game hold up to the hype? You'll see, right after the jump!
