    Until Dawn is a damn near perfect game, which just breathes horror on every level. The game puts you in control of a group of teens and terrifies you while doing so. This is a must have if you own a PlayStation 4.

    The script kept me entertained and feeling like my decisions mattered throughout my 10-hour playthrough. Thanks to some good twists, a few fake-outs, and limitless jump scares, Until Dawn would make a solid horror film. As a piece of interactive fiction, however, it's a remarkable experience that horror fans shouldn't miss.

    Ultimately, Until Dawn is a bold experiment that pays off far more than it doesn’t.

    Until Dawn doesn’t always live up to the potential Supermassive Games envisioned for its ambitious PS4 project, but the game succeeds in enough ways to make it a fascinating and engrossing twist on the horror genre.

    At first glance, a good video game adaptation of the classic horror slasher with outstanding performances, graphic design, and especially huge number of options to help you experience a different story every time you play.

    Despite the stereotypical characters and some uninspired phases, Until Dawn offers an engaging and tense experience, thanks to the good atmosphere and to the moral choices related to the butterfly effect.

    Despite the butterfly effect's premise, a ham-fisted story means you won't care about who might live and who might die. It's not enough to save the game from disappointment, and in the end, Until Dawn is its own self-inflicted nightmare.

It is an unfolding story that you move your character through, like watching a film that you're taking an active part in. You have to make decisions as you go, often having to make choices very quickly and under pressure. It's really well done, it looks gorgeous, and although it took me a few minutes to get the hang of moving my character almost out of sight until the camera angle changed, I did, and it all works pretty seamlessly. The acting and characterization is excellent, I found it very atmospheric, and I was completely engrossed and intrigued to see where the story was heading. I didn't find it terrifying, more moderately creepy with some real 'scream out loud' moments that made me laugh afterwards. It wasn't very long but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and will definitely be playing it through again to try some different choices. Worth every penny I spent on it and then some. Expand

    A nice and different game. It really scares you, and the story is good overall despite some deja vu feeling in this time of games/movies. Some faces aren´t very real and seem some wax/plastic effect that gives away the real present effect of some personages (example Josh).

    If the controversial cancellation of Silent Hills, and P.T getting pulled from the PlayStation store left a bad taste in your mouth, thenIf the controversial cancellation of Silent Hills, and P.T getting pulled from the PlayStation store left a bad taste in your mouth, then Until Dawn will be a good palette cleanser. The story follows a bunch of cocky teenagers who end up in an abandoned Ski field. Throughout the game, the teenagers will be attacked and chased by: a murderer, a ghost, and a creepy monster-thing. And it will be your choices that determine whether this group of cocky teenagers live or die, and your choices actually have a meaningful effect on the story! (looking at you, Beyond Two Souls) Another thing Until Dawn does right is the amazing graphics, there is a heap of detail in every environment, so that really enhances the experience. Another thing that makes Until Dawn great is that the story behind why the ghost is attacking you, or why the ghost is haunting you, these facts are not handed to you, you have to search for clues in the environment that explain what's going on. Overall, Until Dawn is a solid horror game and a solid interactive game, buy It if you loved P.T Expand
