I just wish Invader hadn’t cast their net so wide, that they had stripped back their scale and really focused on a single location — like, say, a mansion — so that they could properly polish and focus on making the best game their budget could manage. While Daymare: 1998 is a love letter to the classics, there’s not a whole lot about the game itself to love.
Daymare: 1998 is a well-honed zombie experience that lacks originality but scratches the itch of those interested in the modern zombie game. It provides an alternate take on the traditional Resident Evil story, one that deals more harshly with the real-world consequences of investigating government science. Everything has a level of varnish, from environmental details to the documents that you read.
In the end, Daymare: 1998 is clearly a passion project and it definitely shows (and I absolutely love it for that). Granted, there are some bumps along the way in the gameplay and design departments, and the game itself looks like it is a generation behind current gen. However, if you can live with those things, you have a solid survival horror experience here. Just make sure you've played all the classics first!
