Daylight does not do much to innovate upon the horror genre. With scares that barely work and uninspired gameplay, critics agree all this game has going for it is its visuals which many say are just a vehicle to promote the Unreal Engine

Critic Reviews for Daylight
Daylight has neither the creeping sense of psychological dread of Fatal Frame nor the poster man antagonist of Slender, and its reliance on cliche lacks distinction. But if the game's straightforward purpose was simply to panic and upset its player then it is an indisputable success, no matter how cheap the tricks employed.
