Critic Reviews for Corpse Party - Steam Edition

The gameplay itself is very dialogue heavy, which can be a turn off for some people; however, it does allow for exploration at your own pace.

Corpse Party is a pretty good mix of a visual novel and survival-horror games.  While the gameplay itself can get a little dull at times as you wander the halls of the school and try to interact with just about everything, the story is rather enjoyable and unique.  Wear some headphones and turn out the lights to complete the experience.

In my 10-12 hour time with Corpse Party (and the handful of endings I stumbled upon), I had lost a handful of friends and witnessed a fair amount of frights. More importantly, the twenty year-old game delivered on a captivating ghost story, fit for the most veteran horror-buffs. And while the art style and themes may turn a few people off, the game is a rewarding, terrifying experience that shows the limits of what a well-told story can accomplish in spite of its artstyle’s limitations.

Corpse Party is a faithful port of the original PC version, but that's not enough when the PSP remake added so much more to the experience. The extra chapters are a nice addition, though, and make it a decent buy for diehard Corpse Party fans. Just don't expect to be scared.

Corpse Party gets everything right, but falls short of greatness due to its unimpressive gameplay.

While Corpse Party attempts to tell an interesting tale, the PC port is clearly inferior to the PSP remake, and the narrative suffers as a result.

As a horror experience, Corpse Party is absolutely mandatory, and should be experienced in whatever platform that is available to you. If possible, however, the PSP version is still the definitive experience, and scales perfectly on the Playstation TV if you also happen to own one of those. Otherwise, the PC version is still a solid experience on its own despite lacking the improved sound design and artwork of its portable follow-up.

Corpse Party’s Steam port holds up especially well for a five year old game.
