Corpse Party: Blood Covered was a (twice remade) PSP horror title that was touted as a hybrid RPG/Adventure game. Although very light on the actual gameplay, the storytelling and presentation left quite the impression on many a gamer. Now a sequel is among us in the form of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows
, a visual novel-type experience that is intentionally less interactive, but more narrative. But do the changes make for a fun shindig, or a complete massacre?
While some series try to open up the appeal of their titles to a broader audience
, Book of Shadows
limits itself to a niche market, but succeeds in delivering a solid experience to those who want to get invested in it. I have a bunch of friends that I cannot respectfully recommend this game to; but there’s also a handful, who like visual novels and/or Corpse Party
, that will eat this title up.
