In any case, 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.

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.

White Day: Labyrinth Named School is an anachronistic, game that comes out on PS4 out of time and shows a lot of years on its shoulders. Despite the obvious efforts to keep up the graphic and the atmosphere at times disturbing, the Korean title White Day: Labyrinth Named School is an anachronistic, awkward title that comes out on PS4 out of time and shows a lot of years on its shoulders. Despite the obvious efforts to keep the technical sector and the disturbing atmosphere at times,White Day: Labyrinth Named School is an anachronistic, awkward title that comes out on PS4 out of time and shows a lot of years on its shoulders. Despite the obvious efforts to rejuvenate the technical sector and the atmosphere and sometimes disturbing, the Korean title fails to thrill.

White Day A Labyrinth Named School may be a legend out of South Korea, but the truth be said, it's not as scary as they told us. On the other hand, it's an intense, hard and efficient survival horror experience, scary as hell and also with a high level of re-playability.
