    Yes, White Day is an older game, but as far as the horror genre goes, and how it's evolved into something I place little value in, that’s actually a benefit. Given how few people have even known what this game is to date, the extra exposure that it will get from a re-release will mean that, hopefully, a new legion of fans will discover it, because it does deserve that. It’s a masterpiece in building tension and in the way that it plays within the classical approach to horror, without relying on jump scares and endless bloodshed.

    White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is still a game I’d strongly encourage for anyone who enjoys a good survival horror game, and misses the days when horror was about disempowering players and using that to inspire terror. It’s still one of the scariest games on PS4. I just wish it had been able to fully capitalise on its setup – the way I’m told the original game did – to deliver a truly terrifying game from start to finish.

    White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is a good remake of a decent survival horror. The game structure is quite affected by the consequences of aging. Some terrible game design choices are very easy to spot and weigh heavily on the enjoyment of the game. The aficionados will love it despite its flaws, while the younger generation might not be convinced by such an old school game.

    White Day has some good scares and decent puzzles that you have to play hide-and-seek to reach, but it doesn't quite live up to its legends. In 2001, it was probably one of the scariest games in existence, and you can't fault it for not matching modern horror heights, but in any era the backtracking and waiting for the janitor to pass over and over isn't the greatest gameplay experience. Still, this will do the job if you can't wait til Halloween for a six- to eight-hour ride.

    It has some flaws that can suck the fun out of it, but White Day should still be of interest to horror fans looking for something substantial.

    White Day has plenty of problems though it’s easy to see why some may see it as a cult hit and why its creators wanted a revival. It’s a clunky, vague, and often frustrating game yet, at the same time, there’s this great setting and some clever puzzles at work. It’s just a shame that, in order to get to the good stuff, you’re almost guaranteed to face some hardship.

    The atmosphere is tense - INSANE. It's awesome. The upgraded visuals and mechanics work and the scares are still genuine. The constant chaseThe atmosphere is tense - INSANE. It's awesome. The upgraded visuals and mechanics work and the scares are still genuine. The constant chase of the janitor is crazy tough, but you're rewarded for your progress and perseverance. I'd recommend this to all horror fans.
    Yee boii.

    This game would be much better if ithe protagonist was not a piece of **** I mean, the guy spends the whole game running from an old man withThis game would be much better if ithe protagonist was not a piece of **** I mean, the guy spends the whole game running from an old man with a bat, and that damn old man still has his left leg injured. Anyone would punch that old man in the ass and then tie him up and lock him in a room, instead of running around like a **** **** Did the producers think an old man with a baseball bat running after you would cause us fear? **** this ****y game. The environment is also horrible and repetitive, does not give you any desire to explore it, but the game still forces you to do to find itens.

    The game does not give any fear, but rather prefers to scare the player with ghost popping up randonly on the screen. I get really pissed when this happens, the third time this happened I deleted this game.
