Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a game perfect for fans of various genres. Fans of the original will find a perfectly executed sequel which improves on the first while maintaining the mood. But fans of horror, story driven games, exploration and adventure will find something to enjoy here too. If any of this sounds good to you give Yomawari: Midnight Shadows a try. It’s sure not to disappoint.
It’s been hard to find horror games that scratch my itch to be disturbed without catching me with cheap scares or leaving me with weeks of nightmares. I long for tense, atmospheric experiences that get me shivering and shaken and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows shook me to my core. It’s a masterful horror game that tops anything else on the Vita, and rivals many other things on the PS4 as it blends detailed sound-design with rich art and a somber narrative to craft a breath-taking horror experience.
There's an important distinction between fear and dread, one that often gets lost in modern horror games - a reliance on the cheap jump scare, the momentary shock instead of the fear that the player will carry with them long after the game has ended.
