Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs
Ultimately, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is more of Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters, for better as well as for worse. The changes to the systems aren't enough to alleviate some of the frustration of the original, but for players that are open to the experience (or who enjoyed things the first time around), there's a lot to like about it.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is an interesting interactive novel, but occidental users are not used to this kind of games. Despite of that, it a good offering that only fails on its combat system.

An interesting and great-looking game that blends the visual novel genre with poorly thought-out strategic combat.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs is a highly strange game, mixing graphic novel gameplay with a tactical RPG. The game is very fun, but not everything works as well as it should. The art style is wonderfully detailed and there are lots of quirky art details that add to the experience, but overall the game fails to really shine in either of its styles, and leaves much to be desired.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak is a title that showed a lot of promise, with a great art style and an interesting premise. However, the atrocious combat mechanics hinder the overall enjoyment of the game so much to the point it’s difficult to recommend to anyone in particular.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is a thoroughly enjoyable romp through a haunted world. What the game lacks in plot originality, it makes up for with its interesting and unique game mechanics, as well as its wonderfully designed cast. It can be accursed with repetition, but there's ultimately a lot to wrap your head around, and the many tactical nuances do a lot to keep boredom at bay.
There is fun to be had here, a good deal perhaps, especially for fans of visual novels. The beautiful visuals, compelling dark atmosphere and interesting story and dialogue are all strong reasons to give this a go. Be aware though that the jarring combat breaks up the flow of the game and sends the fun factor plummeting. It’s unfortunate that it would be so much easier to recommend as a simple visual novel.
Tokyo Twilight Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs is made up of solid concepts that get forgotten due to lacklustre tutorials. Additions made to the story and gameplay improve upon the original title, leading to a decent experience, but only if you’re willing to stick with it.
With the extended story and improved combat system, Daybreak Special Gigs is an excellent enhancement to an already fantastic game.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs is an enhanced version of a game that is, objectively speaking, a sub-par experiment at niche game design. The newly-added characters, uniforms, animations, tutorials and so on add to what was present originally in a highly beneficial fashion.
