Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs Review (PS4)

This is one of the more unusual games I have played. I am not even sure how to describe it, because it mixes so many genres in so many ways. Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is a game that mixes visual novels with RPGs but the blending is not a hundred percent perfect. It tries to be something new, but just ended up as something strange. It isn’t bad, but I guess I have to admit that it is just something I haven’t really encountered in this format before.

A Re-release of Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak, this version comes with an extended story. The same plot of high school students and scientists taking on the supernatural is there, but is expanded on in many ways. The gameplay is mostly unchanged, with the visual novel style of choices to move the story forward, combined with tactical RPG battles. This part of the gameplay is rather fun and I wish there was more of it. These battles require a lot of strategic thought and planning and to me, were the best part of the entire game experience.

Overall, the game is rather gorgeous, with eye popping artwork that really helps it stand out. For some reason the art in this game just stood out to me more than in other games of this kind. Maybe it was the power of the PlayStation 4, but this was just amazing. The one part that does bug me is that it uses photographs as backgrounds a lot. This does take away from the experience a bit.

Overall this is an okay game and if you liked the original releases, you might like this one. Its difficult to recommend because I am not sure who the target audience is, but I will say that when the game is fun, it is a lot of fun.
