In an industry where shock value is often the king of the horror video game, it’s hard to imagine a horror game completely devoid of gore and sudden fright hitting all of the right notes of interest, but Albino Lullaby does the job admirably. It escalates very well, albeit some slight lulls or noticeable drop-offs to the tension due to recycled content. This first episode moved in a way where questions were solved, only to give way to much more gripping questions and the answers were sometimes much more disturbing than not knowing in the first place. Albino Lullaby’s first chapter has set the stage to deliver a solid series and we might just be on the hook to see where this twisted rabbit hole leads.

Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 offers a genuinely fresh take on the horror genre, with a bright color palette, a topsy turvy environment, and nuanced enemies. In spite of its low points, it's definitely worth experiencing. With time it should become more polished, but for now if you want to play it, you'll have to brace yourself for bugs.

Only clocking in at roughly two and a half hours, the whole experience is over rather quickly, but that's enough time to give players a clear satisfying story for those that paid attention to notes. It isn't all that innovative but truly, it doesn't have to be. If you're playing this, you're playing for the narrative.

It’s unclear, however, how many players will actually be scared by this nightmare world. Albino Lullaby is willing to continually undercut its own horror, a gamble that doesn’t really pay off.
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Jun 29, 2016)
Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 is a most unnerving horror game, but not the all-around freakiest or best from a gameplay perspective. Despite some A+ design work, there is a real lack of compelling gameplay at the core. Even so, it might be worth an afternoon of play for diehard horror fans (or folks who just plain dig the aesthetic). Those hoping for an excellent new horror title to play in virtual reality, however, must unfortunately look elsewhere. This release is a simple conversion of a non-VR release into VR and appears to have not considered the full logistics of this change. As such, the existing virtual reality build is downright unplayable for many due to immediate motion sickness and headaches. Perhaps a simple camera tweak will resolve the issue, but until then, anyone with a Rift or Vive simply should look elsewhere.
