Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows (New Gamer Nation)

As one of the last PSP games released in the West, the original Corpse Party proved to be a pleasant surprise contained in a gruesome package; despite the 16-bit visuals and anime character designs, the story of a group of students and a teacher spirited away to a haunted school was one of the most disturbing horror stories ever to grace a videogame console. One by one the characters would meet their ends in increasingly horrific ways, and those that managed to survive would be too traumatized to ever return to a normal life. (Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, PS Vita, PSP) 7/10

"despite the 16-bit visuals and anime character designs"

Were those supposed to be bad things?

I guess to each their own though, not knocking the review or anything. The score is pretty spot-on for Book of Shadows, not as good as the first, but still pretty great in terms of story and atmosphere.

Regardless, I hope they localize Corpse Party 2. It's a really unique game that we need more of.
