The Day Before had become a controversial game before its release. With accusations of plagiarism, fake marketing, and overpromising, the game had much to prove upon its initial release.
The Day Before has just been released on Steam, but users are not happy. While it hasn’t been available for long, the game has already gathered thousands of negative reviews, implying that the industry was right to doubt this title.
Why it matters: The reviews highlight that this release is a far cry from everything promised in the marketing before launch.
Looking at the Steam page, it has gathered 2198 user reviews. With numerous negative reviews, Steam has placed it in the ‘Overwhelmingly Negative’ category. Only a measly 15% of the total reviews are positive.
It appears developer Fntastic has failed to create a compelling open-world survival experience. The game may have been too ambitious for this smaller studio, leading to a colossal failure.
Users have pointed out that The Day Before is currently experiencing server issues, failing to accommodate the large number of players joining at release. Others point to a hollow world with no life.
Meanwhile, some suggest that the game is just another extraction shooter based on a small area, dubbing it a cheap version of Escape From Tarkov.
It seems the game is a failure on all fronts, hardly living up to any of its promises.
Last month, developer Fntastic also revealed the system requirements of this game. However, the requirements lacked AMD hardware, showing yet another oversight from the studio.
Judging from the reviews, users are likely to request refunds soon. We would also recommend readers avoid The Day Before for now or try it with the intention of a refund on Steam.
The game could become better with future updates, but its problems extend far beyond the usual buggy launch that many have become accustomed to.
