Review: Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Corpse Party is definitely what it sounds like, except for the party part…

Corpse Party: Blood Drive is a survival horror adventure PSVita game that came out in 2015 and it is the sequel to the Corpse Party: Book of Shadows.

This story starts out with the main character, Ayumi Shinozaki, going through a tough time from the previous events at Heavenly Host Elementary School in Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. Some of the characters from said games are gone and erased from the world and only Ayumi, Naomi, Satoshi, and Yoshiki still remembers them and what happened at Heavenly Host. Their memory of them drives them crazy to the point of medication and depression and Ayumi thinks it’s her fault for having everyone do the “Sachiko Ever After” charm in Corpse Party so she is going to do whatever she can to bring everyone back to life.

This game is survival horror so there are many pop scares and you do get chased by ghosts. To get away from these ghosts, you can hide in a closet or room or you can use a talisman and the ghost will disappear. The flashlight feature is very useful because this game gets extremely dark. Ayumi will also walk around the school and leave candles where you can save your progress so far. There are also bandages for healing and batteries for your flashlight because it will go out.

Take it from me, the dialogue is very graphic and disturbing for some people (which is why this game is Rated M). The environment is extremely bloody and very suspenseful, which is perfect for this genre. I love horror games and this one was more of a run-away and hide horror game and that makes it a lot scarier.

If you’ve played Corpse Party, I suggest playing Corpse Party: Book of Shadows before Blood Drive because this is story based and you will get lost in the story because they bring back events from the first Corpse Party.

Have you guys played any of the Corpse Party games?
