Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs
Top Critic Average
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs is a mouthful to say, but it's a solid visual novel ghost hunting experience that's mainly held back by a shoddy PC port and unexplained mechanics.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters shows that not every experiment in gaming can be a success. For what its worth, the game is playable and functional, although the actual functions leave a lot to be desired.
That’s the problem with this game, wasted potential. The combat was pretty fun after I got used to it. It made me use my head and think about my moves or be punished for them. You can also tell that this game utilizes quite a bit of research. If this attention to detail was spread to most other aspects of the game, it could have been really fun. At this point, though, I can’t say that this game is anything more than underwhelming. The graphics end up looking lazy, the communication is confusing, and things are never fully explained. It just ends up being a disappointing mess that never really improves.
Fun visual novel with hardcore strategy elements
As you can tell from our Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Daybreak: Special Gigs review, this is a “love it or hate it” type of release.

I can’t help but recommend this game. It’s well worth it just for the experience of playing it, and none of its shortcomings are enough to detract from the game’s merit as a whole. Above all things, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is a unique game with lots of charm.
An interesting and great-looking game that blends the visual novel genre with poorly thought-out strategic combat.
