The first 20 minutes of Daylight are pure horror bliss. Hospital lights flicker and buzz as footsteps pound along in the distance; shrill screams echo through the halls, and unsettling visages of specters stare at you from afar. It’s genuinely spooky, making you wary of each step into its bleak world. But once that initial tension wears off, the game falls apart. Fear is replaced with frustration as Daylight settles into an unrelenting cycle of tedious item hunting and cheap jump scares, turning this would-be thriller into a corny carnival horror ride.
