Corpse Party is not for the weak of heart. It conveys some pretty dark imagery and few games are more worthy of the ESRB's M rating. But if you can get past its unpleasant sights and stomach-churning sounds, this visual novel provides an emotional experience that's well worth the price of admission.
Its sequel, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, is out now on PlayStation Network and shakes things up with a new first-person perspective and point-and-click interface. North Americans can grab the blood-chilling collaboration between XSEED and Team GrisGris on PSP and Vita for $20, whereas Europeans will have to wait until January 23 for next week's update.
