    Daymare: 1998 is an interesting homage to the Resident Evil franchise, complete with 90s graphics, cheesy characters, and a tough difficulty. Inventory management forces you to think carefully, while boss fights can be tedious and unfair.

    Daymare: 1998 is an unapologetic love letter to horror games of the 90's and especially the Resident Evil series. It may be janky and tough at times, which is likely to put off newcomers, but it will have a certain appeal to the fans of the genre.

    Daymare: 1998 is a hardcore survival horror purposely created by fans, for fans. Despite some technical flaws and hiccups, typical of independent productions, it recreates the atmosphere of the old school gems.

    Daymare: 1998 feels like going back to visit a friend from school who still lives a youthful life free of responsibility. It's fun for a while, but you eventually realise that there is a reason you left that lifestyle behind. Were this released before Capcom's own Resident Evil 2 remake, its issues might not have been so apparent. Oddly stranded in time, this now feels too clunky for newcomers and is one for genre aficionados interested in the evolution of survival horror.

    Daymare 1998 is at once a breath of fresh air and a spiritually genuine revisitation of survival horror's heyday, so it's no stretch to say that players new and old will find something to enjoy here.

    I’d still recommend this game if good world-building, easter-egg hunting and puzzles are what you are looking for in survival horror titles because those elements are fantastic. But beware, as clunky mechanics and repetitive design definitely drag things down, Still, Daymare 1998 is an ambitious first game from the young Invader Studios that showcases their immense potential, and I wish them nothing but the best for what’s to come.

    Daymare 1998 is meant to be a blast from the past but all it really does is destroy your old memories of those 90s horror games you played so long ago.

    This game is really good, because it plays and looks exactly like resident evil 2 remastered. Daymare is one of the best indie survival horrorThis game is really good, because it plays and looks exactly like resident evil 2 remastered. Daymare is one of the best indie survival horror games i've ever played at the moment and I think it will be!
    The puzzles were easy but interesting, there were a bit bland spots in the game like the forest but all in all it was a good game and there should me more like this one!
    Just the characters looked plastic for example the facial animations and the voice acting was stupid, but that didn't matter when the killing and getting surprise attacked by zombies was fun.

    10/10 recommend this game and want to play more games like this.

    By far the worst game I've ever played in my life. A full of bugs and glitches piece of **** game, which are not only visual but in many casesBy far the worst game I've ever played in my life. A full of bugs and glitches piece of **** game, which are not only visual but in many cases game breaking, for example, once I got stuck in a computer and I had to reload my latest save making me go back like 15 minutes ago. That is the main problem whenever there is a game breaking bug, of which, there are dozens, you have to go back to your latest save which was probably a long time ago making it really tedious to play the game (You can save game in some computers on the game like in Resident Evil but for some retarded reason you can NEVER use those saves, the developers of this game are some lazy pieces of **** luckily I didn't pay them for it). Aside from bugs and glitches, the character models sucks together with the lypsinc, whenever there was a cinematic I felt like I was playing the last Mass Effect of how poorly animated and synced it was. Not only this, the story is boring as hell too, a **** cliche, all the characters are boring flat ass character that don't develop at all. The movement is no good either, in a game where you are supposed to move like a gazelle this game's poor development forces you to move like a **** rhino. Finally this game confuses difficulty with enemies that are bullet sponges *cough* The Division *cough* and retarded puzzles which 80% of the time don't make sense and force you to look them up online. There's one where you need to write a code by using a Greek alphabet keyboard and comparing it to yours and because my keyboard key layout is different I had to look it up online. Or another one where red mean that something is turned on? wtf. Expand
