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 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.

White Day: A Labyrinth Named School presents a thrilling story, the player is constantly surprised, the situations are very exciting, the chase is breathtaking, but it is very difficult in the second half of the events and confrontations that have been dominated by randomness and similar design to all the floors of the school, and also suffered from the level of the graphics that does not fit a game released in 2017.

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.

It's good to see the cult classic on PlayStation 4, but there are certain flaws you can't excuse, and tropes which become overused after a while.

White Day is a game that might not make a lot of sense, but is a very interesting touchstone for building a atomsphere of anxious, awkward horror.
