Until Dawn

 

While we are all looking forward to the Fall and Holiday season where we see releases like Fallout 4, Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection and the likes of Halo 5; we can't overlook a crop of exceptional titles that recently hit the market. One of these...

Until Dawn Review

 

Interactive movies (IMs) get dinged harder than they deserve when it comes to player choice. After all, the vast majority of games are linear affairs—an innumerable number have players moving from cut-scene to cut-scene until credits roll. However, by...

Finally getting my hands on a shotgun and killing [REDACTED

The capriciousness of whether Matt lives or dies

From writing, acting, technical and gameplay standpoints, Until Dawn is a great accomplishment, and a must-play for fans of interactive movies. On the other hand, it's frustrating that the developers didn't go a little further to turn it into a truly...

Until Dawn Review

 

Teen slasher flicks really aren't my thing. The hackneyed storyline, laughable acting, and generally ham-fisted approach to instilling fear just doesn't do it for me. I might find them to be a silly diversion at best, and only if nothing else is on...

Until Dawn Review

 

The choices you make in Until Dawn have more far-reaching consequences than in most other survival horror games: the butterfly effect feature it so heavily relies on is highly effective, adding weight to seemingly innocuous choices and creating a game...

Narrative offers dozens of branching paths with varying outcomes Choices matter in big ways and affect the rest of the game Actor performances are incredibly good Mechanics are utilized in a meaningful way that feeds into the horror film experience...

Camera angles are unflattering Story gets predictable at its midpoint

I didn't expect to have so much fun with Until Dawn, and the depth with which my choices mattered and affected the final outcome encouraged repeat playthroughs. The visuals can be wonky at times, but in the end Until Dawn succeeds in being a thoughtful...

Until Dawn review: a dark night rises

 

Walking is down to you and where some might see this as a chore, it mixes up the pace and gradually builds horror whether you want it to or not. This deliberate pacing works well with fixed camera angles and an unpredictable string-based score to leave...

It’s a bloodstained love letter to every horror movie you’ve ever seen; The tone of 90s schlock horror is down to a fine art; The pace isn’t afraid to make you wait for scares (of which there are plenty)

You’ll feel somewhat cheated when it comes to early decisions making a difference; For a full price game, this is a painfully short experience; Replay value is diminished by set plot points throughout the game

As cheesy horror goes, you've never had it this pretty or entertaining but when it comes to a one off experience, Until Dawn is expensive interactive terror.

Until Dawn Review

 

The following game is not for the faint of heart. ‘Until Dawn' is an interactive movie, much in the same vein as titles such as ‘Heavy Rain' or ‘Beyond Two Souls' only this time it's a game based in the horror genre. Light on gameplay and heavy on...

Until Dawn PS4 Review

 

Until Dawn is what can only be described as an interactive horror film, paying homage to a multitude of horror tropes and clichés and harks back to the days when horror films made you dread the thought of staying at a cabin. The game is heavily...

Every game has it’s pro’s and con’s and whilst Until Dawn sometimes puts more focus on minor points of the game and reduces the prominence of other aspects that could have been something more, its interesting concept and gameplay certainly makes up for...

Until Dawn Review

 

Beyond that minor annoyance, Supermassive is to be commended for the job they’ve done in the visuals department. Until Dawn runs on the engine that previously made love to your eyeballs in Killzone: Shadowfall, and the lush blizzard effects,...

Until Dawn review

 

Interactive horror at its cheesy best

The fact that Until Dawn both relies too heavily on QTEs, and is essentially a horror movie you play will probably put a lot of people off. Which is a shame, because if you push past the silly concept of what a game should be and just enjoy what’s on...
