DYING: Reborn is a first person puzzle game where you will attempt to escape from the rooms that you find yourself in. The best use of the escape room genre is likely the 999/Zero Escape/Zero Time series, unfortunately this game gives you much weaker story and much weaker puzzles than that series of games. There are a few good puzzles here and there but many will just have you slowly walking around trying to find things and then interacting with a nearby object with whatever you just discovered. The voice acting and story are both poor and not going to be a reason to check this game out and the graphics are nothing that will impress. The game also lacks the sense of urgency or character death that you would expect in a game like this.
DYING: Reborn is trying to imitate successful titles of the horror genre like Outlast and Resident Evil 7, but sadly it fails to do so and the result is kinda awful in some scenarios. Just like Outlast it puts you in a isolated mansion and you don't know how you ended up here, and you must find clues to progress the story and also escape the mysterious ghost like woman who is chasing you. The only good thing about the game is some of the puzzles and jump scare moments you experience and also a creepy atmosphere, but even with having these elements and lack of putting them correctly in the right places, DYING: Reborn fails to deliver a worthy and memorable experience and it would be just a typical horror game.
