The developer's love for Resident Evil and old school survival horror is obvious but this poorly made homage does nobody any favours.

This effort to relive the roots of survival horror has its heart in the right place, but too many glitches and an uneven balance in the gameplay lessen the experience.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

Dawn of Fear is a poor attempt to recreate the magic of a survival horror classic, with too many problems to gain any sense of enjoyment.

Dawn of Fear is not what you would typically consider a good video game and it most definitely does not perform like one. However, when it works, there hasn't been anything else quite like it for the best part of two decades. Dawn of Fear is the best and worst tribute to Resident Evil at the same time, and we can't think anything more intriguing than that.
