    The Quarry’s charming cast and eye-watering visual splendour are worth the price of entry alone, but its strong, varying plot is where it truly pops.
  2. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a tense horror adventure with incredibly likable characters and some effective scares. The central mystery is fun to figure out, and the game doesn’t take itself too seriously. While there are a few hiccups, you can either work around them or ignore them as they’re not so major as to detract from the overall experience. This is Supermassive’s best work yet.
  3. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is A MUST for any fan of the genre. It is a game that constantly tries to one-up Until Dawn and, as far as it concerns me, it manages to do so. The game is intense but bearable even if, just like me, you cannot handle horror that well. The Quarry takes hold of you up until the very last moment, with the comforting sensation that every choice you have made along the way is actually represented in your gameplay experience.
  4. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a significant evolution of the formula established with Until Dawn. This time around the performance capture, cinematography and complex branching story are even more impressive. The game's biggest achievement, though, are its setting, narrative and characters. While they don't entirely transcend the stock tropes of genre fiction, they are far and away some of the best in any videogame and absolutely the equal of big-budget horror films. The Quarry is a must-play for horror fans. Gamers who enjoy great narratives, memorable characters and intriguing choice-driven mechanics will love it too.
  5. Aug 8, 2022
    As I mentioned earlier it’s hard to review games like The Quarry without spoiling the story, but I hope I’ve been able to whet your appetite enough with what could easily be Supermassives best entry to date. With the beautifully crafted scenery, soundtrack and great cast it’s certainly one I’ll be playing again and again once I get my Series X version!
  6. Jun 28, 2022
    Seemingly, it’s more of what we’ve already seen from Supermassive Games: a group of characters, a branching storyline, numerous QTE’s and tons of important decisions to make. However, the devil’s in the details – very interesting narrative style, the pace of the game and it’s surprising story make The Quarry Supermassive’s greatest achievement to date.
  7. Jun 12, 2022
    The Quarry is Supermassive's best game so far, capable both to blend storytelling and interactivity and delivering a fine, standalone, cinematographic experience.
  8. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a fascinating mix of gameplay, story, and casting which brings the teen drama horror experience to life on multiple levels. Suspense and the ever-feeling sense of danger is what we often love most about horror films, but even then, much of that can dissipate after the first viewing.
  9. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry elevates the blueprint popularized by previous titles like Until Dawn while showcasing gorgeous visuals, fantastic character performances, and an engaging overarching narrative. This is a well-crafted modern love letter to classic campy horror.
  10. Jun 8, 2022
    Supermassive doesn't shy away from the fact that The Quarry is essentially an interactive movie. The mechanics haven't evolved since Until Dawn was released seven years ago, and that's perfectly fine. The basic system of choice and consequence is still highly effective at building suspense and lending a massive amount of weight to each decision you make. Its characters are personable, well written, and superbly performed, ensuring that you care about what happens to them, and the story takes plenty of exciting twists and turns that make you eager to find out what's going to happen next. You may only make a contribution every few minutes, but that doesn't stop The Quarry from being a fantastic horror game and Supermassive's best venture to date.
  11. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry delivers on its interactive horror movie premise, the characters are all wonderfully realised, the violence, terror and scares are all here. Meaningful choices, multiple endings and memorial set-pieces sit alongside stellar performances, excellent cinematography and cutting-edge visuals. A summer camp experience you won’t soon forget.
  12. Jun 8, 2022
    Wearing every cliché on its sleeve, The Quarry is having a whale of a time with its setting. Sometimes it's satirising the slasher film, others it subverts them. With many endings and path-altering decisions to make, no two playthroughs are alike. Coupled with a heap of horror alumni, as well as up and comers, The Quarry is a veritable romp through jump scares, ghost stories and video nasties.
  13. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is one of Supermassive Games' best titles, harking back to the glory days of Until Dawn for all the right reasons.
  14. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is no more than the best Supermassive creation ever. A solid story driven by a polished gameplay, great replayability, and some solid technique. A must have in this first half of 2022.
  15. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry feels like a true spiritual successor to Until Dawn. Not just because it follows a group of young people running for their lives in the middle of the woods, but the emphasis on putting characters first in the story. Strong performances and solid writing actually made me care about the characters, which made the constant threat of danger all the more impactful. With dynamically branching pathways and some truly frightening sequences, The Quarry just might be my favorite game from Supermassive.
  16. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is yet another impressive title by Supermassive Games. While it doesn't veer away from their previous titles, their ability to write an interesting story with compelling characters is only improving. Featuring several red herrings and twists, The Quarry will keep you guessing and gives you an ever-increasing impact on how the story turns out. There are still a few niggles here and there, such as the sloth-like character movement and a few facial animation and audio quirks, but this looks better than ever and features an excellent soundtrack. If you're a fan of Until Dawn or The Dark Pictures games, you'll like this; particularly as the larger budget comes with a much bigger cast and a much larger and more branching story.
  17. Jul 26, 2022
    All of this said, is this a $60 experience? I loved it. I intend to come back to it. But I also got this game for free for review, and that matters. I might have felt burned at a $60 price point because it is pretty short if you only have one go at it, and movie tickets aren’t $60 here in the US (not yet, anyway). If someone isn’t as into the game as me, that’s going to feel like a high entry price. That said, this is a phenomenal-looking game with fantastic acting. If price is no object, then I definitely recommend The Quarry, as it’s worth the ten hours of your life, but for those who have to make discerning decisions with their wallets, maybe wait until this one’s on sale.
  18. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry tells a horror story through the "group play". Against the backdrop of excellent music and wonderful camera movement and arrangement, I had an unforgettable night in Hackett Quarry, a place full of crisis, darkness and choices. Through the perfect portrayal of characters, the good narration of story, the creation of horrible atmosphere and the control of audio-visual effects, The Quarry gave me a brand-new understanding of narrative-driven games.
  19. Jun 21, 2022
    The Quarry takes the foundations of what Until Dawn planted at the time and far exceeds it. A challenging and very replayable title that allows us to enjoy a terrifyingly fun experience.
  20. Jun 21, 2022
    The Quarry is not much of a game - it's an interactive movie with some basic game elements to check the "interactive" boxes. If you keep that in mind, you should have a hell of a time. The Quarry is Supermassive Games' best title yet.
  21. Jun 20, 2022
    If The Quarry suffers from some obvious technical problems, especially during the first chapters, they quickly fade away in favor of an engaging plot, credible relationships and logical interactions. Aware of its origins (Until Dawn), it doesn't rest on its laurels and offers a new interactive teen-movie, much less cliché than its predecessor, which will undoubtedly delight fans of the genre. The Quarry is contemplative. Get involved, get interested in what it offers, and it will probably give you back. And remember: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
  22. Jun 14, 2022
    More thrilling than scary yet featuring lots of potentially bloody teenagers running away from an unknown creature, The Quarry checks the list for what you want from a good slasher flick. After about 9 hours, the game proves to be a culmination of your choices and quick button inputs while still featuring a script that knows where it’s headed.
  23. Jun 10, 2022
    Fans have been waiting for a follow-up with the tone of Until Dawn and it has finally arrived with The Quarry. The very likable cast and the enthralling story will keep players entertained in what is one of the most fully fleshed-out games of this genre to date, but the only question remaining is will you survive the night?
  24. Jun 10, 2022
    A title that comes at the right time before the long summer evenings!
  25. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a celebration of horror with enough twists and turns to excite even the most jaded aficionado. It manages to avoid the tropes inherent with its summer camp setting by giving each of the protagonists a thorough opportunity for characterization and makes you care enough about each of them for their fates to matter. It’s not without flaws. In particular, the exploration sections have a few issues. However, Supermassive Games’ return to AAA manages to exceed the high bar set by Until Dawn.
  26. Jun 8, 2022
    For the core game, I wish more of the action was in the hands of the player, but I can’t deny how enthralling the choices are, especially when they lead to absolute chaos. Once the frantic running through the woods begins, the dark mysteries and thrill of keeping people alive are powerful hooks that will keep you glued in suspense until the credits roll.
  27. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is as good as I was hoping it'd be, and that's a pleasant surprise.
  28. Jun 8, 2022
    With strong writing, extreme self-awareness, exceptional performances all around… and a confidence that’s exuded no matter the branching path you find yourself in, Supermassive has outdone itself with The Quarry.
  29. Jun 8, 2022
    If you are a fan of Supermassive and slashers, here you will find their most polished and "confortable" experience, with a surprising technical performance. Even so, we would have loved them taking more risks in the narrative department.
  30. Jun 8, 2022
    A true love letter to classic teen slasher flicks, The Quarry is a memorable mix of polish and tension let down by a few frustrating mechanics. A real treat and must-play for fans of the horror genre.
  31. Jun 16, 2022
    Supermassive Games gives that back-to-the-roots feeling for Supermassive Games' fans, that can enjoy a well-thought cinematographic horror experience.
  32. Jun 8, 2022
    With The Quarry, Supermassive Games isn't reinventing the interactive story genre. Much is reminiscent of Until Dawn or The Dark Pictures Anthology. However, the developers have refined their storytelling again. So The Quarry offers more branches within the given story paths than the previous titles. With great actors and some surprises at the end, even the sometimes ugly facial animations can hardly spoil the fun of the very entertaining teen horror game.
  33. Jul 12, 2022
    The folks at Supermassive Games offer us a delightful choose your own adventure experience, with an 80's horror VHS backdrop. I would recommend The Quarry to both fans of interactive storytelling and people who are not well versed in survival horror games or are easily stressed by them.
  34. Jul 1, 2022
    The story is not without its flaws. While there are a lot of different ending variations based on who makes it through the night and some key decisions, the true final chapter of the game ends on a rather abrupt and underwhelming note. But that doesn't change the fact that this is an entertaining and very worthwhile ride, and one that players might want to experience more than once from the beginning to see all of the different ways in which the deadly events at Hackett's Quarry can unfold (including all of the gruesome deaths).
  35. Jun 17, 2022
    The Quarry's strong cinematic horror experience and intriguing narrative make it a worthy spiritual successor to Until Dawn.
  36. Jun 16, 2022
    With a stellar cast, compelling story and a ton of replayability, The Quarry is a love letter to 80s and 90s teen horror that makes for a cracking and tense time.
  37. Jun 15, 2022
    It feels so exciting that after seven long years (and a collection of middling to decent entries in the Dark Anthology series), Supermassive has created something that surpasses the game that put them on the map all those years ago. The Quarry is a loveable achievement – whip-smart, beautiful, and more than willing to pull the rug out and blindside you in the way the great horror often does, all while paying tribute to icons of the genre.
  38. Jun 14, 2022
    I believe Supermassive Games did a great job with The Quarry. While it doesn't offer much in terms of gameplay, the story and characters are by far the best it's been in some of the developer's recent titles and provide an experience that can even rival the spiritual predecessor, Until Dawn.
  39. Jun 14, 2022
    The Quarry is the perfect material to create an atmospheric spooky evening. It contains enough mysteries, monsters, chases and frustrations to keep you on the edge of your seat. As Supermassive's most experimental horror game yet, we sadly had hoped for more originality.
  40. Jun 10, 2022
    Although there is not much difference between Supermassive's previous games system wise, Quarry shows an interesting storytelling based on classical teenage horror films. Facial expressions came naturally without awkwardness thanks to the collaboration with famous actors. But, it is a bit unfortunate that we cannot enjoy co-op multiplayer right after its release.
  41. Jun 10, 2022
    The Quarry fulfills two specifications perfectly: that of horror films and that of interactive films. You can therefore count on teenage characters as prey, scary sequences, a good dose of gore, many choices, multiple endings, and graphics that approach photorealism.
  42. Jun 9, 2022
    The Quarry may not be attempting anything groundbreaking, but what it does end up having, it executes on perfectly with great acting, a tightly-knit story, and relatable characters for a fun couple of nights of horror.
  43. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry’s charming writing and cinematic presentation make it an engrossing horror caper – even if this is, paradoxically, a game that’s often at its best when you’re not actively playing it.
  44. Jun 8, 2022
    Sometimes ridiculously ridiculous, sometimes convincingly exciting; this interactive slasher film is a worthy spiritual successor to Until Dawn. Unfortunately, The Quarry has barely been modernized, with pretty much the exact same minimal gameplay, graphics, and story structure. But the plot, characters and kills are most likely exactly what Supermassive Games fans were hoping for.
  45. Jun 8, 2022
    If you are looking for an interactive movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat, it is logical that The Quarry is going to be that title that will quench your thirst for mystery or terror. However, if you are looking for a revolution in this genre both in narrative and in the playable part, unfortunately you are going to have to keep waiting for a later installment.
  46. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is the worthy successor of Until Dawn, but also Supermassive’s best game so far. With its endearing casting, an addictive story, an astonishing cinematography and a proven formula, The Quarry is a must-play horror game for fans of the genre.
  47. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry isn't quite what I had hoped it would be, but it's in the ballpark. Performance, animation, and dialog are usually perfectly executed, but some elements don't meet this high bar, and as a result, the experience can feel slightly disjointed. I didn't like the execution of some of the main baddies, both in a story context and on a technical level, and the story was sometimes too straightforward. Choices have interesting impacts, but the overall story beats remain largely the same — with the exception that a few protagonists are missing. What remains is a largely entertaining choice-based horror narrative that doesn't stray too far from Supermassive's tried-and-true formula.
  48. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a light and fun horror adventure that exudes love for the genre. If you can, play it with friends.
  49. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is not without its flaws, but by no means is it a bad game. It’s fun, it’s immersive, and the fate of Hackett’s Quarry truly lies in your hands. As with most games developed by Supermassive, The Quarry is best played with plenty of blankets to hide under, and possibly a friend to adventure through couch co-op mode with you. Tread carefully.
  50. Jun 8, 2022
    In lieu of a direct sequel to Until Dawn, The Quarry packs almost everything that fans could have asked for. The game’s longer opening and more intricate mystery ensure that the characters and the narrative are far more compelling this time around, and while the game doesn’t pack quite as many scares are Until Dawn, it’s easily a far more polished product. If it wasn’t for a few cheap deaths, issues with the Death Rewind mechanic and the abrupt nature of the ending, the game would be held in much higher esteem. But even with those problems, I can easily recommend The Quarry to almost any gamer out there.
  51. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is an excellent survival horror experience with a strong cast of characters and a startling horror narrative that delights with campy scares and unexpected twists. Fans of Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures need to pick this up, or even those after a spooky outing either alone or with friends. It isn’t the alien abduction story I’ve been waiting for, but it still proves that Supermassive Games is the undisputed king of the genre when it matters.
  52. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is predominantly a successful offering from Supermassive, with a satisfying amount of scares paired with recurring weak points from previous titles that slightly mar the experience. The positives far outweigh the negatives, however, and the game will no doubt please fans of the genre with its fun though not entirely innovative story. The Quarry fully delivers on its promise of a campy horror experience and is one of the best titles from the developer since Until Dawn.
  53. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is the Supermassive game I've been looking for since Until Dawn. It is well-paced, well-told, and - most importantly - genuinely spooky. Some odd characterisations and inconsistent graphics let it down slightly, but this is the most fun I've had with a game like this in some time.
  54. 80
    The Quarry is a cheesy, campy thrill ride with a fascinating mystery at its core.
  55. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a very good narrative horror game in the vein of Scream but above all it is the worthy successor to Until Dawn. With proven mechanics and a terrific atmosphere, it offers an experience that works very well, alone or with friends. It nevertheless suffers from the same faults as its predecessors with somewhat floating movements and sudden changes in camera angles, not to mention a few lengths in the dialogues. Anyway, it offers a very good 80s horror moment and we love it.
  56. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a charming and surprisingly intimate horror story that creates real stakes and successfully does away with the idea of plot armor. Although it has some annoying or even frustrating quirks, it’s a worthy successor to a game like Until Dawn and highlights Supermassive Games as masters of their craft.
  57. Jun 8, 2022
    Those who have enjoyed prior Supermassive titles will find a lot to love in The Quarry. The developer has refined its interactive storytelling skills and the game really goes to town with the butterfly effect gameplay, while managing to be a stellar spookfest at the same time…Horror lovers looking for a creepy night in will also be well served by the Quarry, and with plenty of endings and story permutations, it could be a solid weekend binge for genre aficionados.
  58. Jun 8, 2022
    Is The Quarry Supermassive Games' best game yet? It's bloody close. In many ways it outshines Until Dawn, but it's a shame its final chapter doesn't feel quite as eventful as we'd have liked. The visuals are great, the characters are brilliantly acted, and the horrors you face truly are terrifying. Combine that with impactful decisions to be made, which will encourage you to play through The Quarry multiple times, and you have a horror experience that's not to be missed.
  59. Jun 8, 2022
    Rewarding those who are restrained as well as those who are reckless, The Quarry is nerve-shredding as a single-player game - so who knows what chaos will ensue with its multiplayer modes? For fans of schlocky yet satirical horror games and films, The Quarry is not one to miss.
  60. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry sees Supermassive Games back on top form with a spiritual successor to the superlative Until Dawn that comes mighty close to knocking that classic off its lofty perch. There's a fantastic cast of well-observed characters to get to know here, a narrative that packs in several threats and plenty of twists, turns and light-hearted moments to sit alongside its shocks and juicy revelations. With jaw-dropping visuals, a cracking soundtrack and plenty in the way of replayability in order to see every outcome on offer, this is an interactive horror experience that's well worth jumping into.
  61. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a wonderfully atmospheric interactive horror game that offers up some of the best acting performances in the medium today. The rich, intertwining narratives deliver an incredible story that you will want to keep going back to - especially if you don't save everyone.
  62. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is an easy recommendation for players who have been watching campy horror movies for years, wishing they could make all the smart decisions that would obviously keep everyone alive. Or, you know, the psychos who just want to watch the world burn.
  63. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is the best game Supermassive has made since Until Dawn. It’s a great horror narrative adventure, only limited by its unmissable QTEs that take a lot of tension away from the key sequences.
  64. Jun 8, 2022
    Thanks to its multiple narrative branches and the customization of QTEs and various interactive moments, The Quarry is one of the best graphic adventures of recent years, and will win you over also thanks to its pleasant vintage setting.
  65. Jun 14, 2022
    The Quarry is still filled to the brim with thrills, tough choices, and brutal deaths. Unfortunately, it still suffers from the same pitfalls that have plagued past titles. It's worsened by poorly written character relationships and a rather unsatisfying ending.
  66. Jun 10, 2022
    The Quarry is a good interactive movie. Sadly we were expecting something more playable.
  67. Supermassive Games does its best work when it embraces these kinds of callbacks, committing to the camp and cheesiness of the slasher films that inspired its games. Despite its stumbles, “The Quarry” is a testament to that, and while it doesn’t quite stack up to the original, it’s a compelling tribute that I’ll be playing again and again.
  68. Jun 10, 2022
    Visually compelling teen horror spectacle that, despite a high degree of freedom of choice, runs a bit out of breath at the end.
  69. Edge Magazine
    Jul 14, 2022
    Despite these imperfections, The Quarry still delivers a deliciously hammy horror tale, filled with personality and humour. [Issue#374, p.116]
  70. Jul 13, 2022
    The Quarry is a game that starts slow (very slow actually) and ends fast. It tells a beautiful story, performances and voiceovers are amazing but falls short when it comes to gameplay compared to other Supermassive games.
  71. Jun 10, 2022
    The Quarry brings you the best story yet from Supermassive Games. In terms of gameplay, however, it lags behind its predecessors. In addition, you will encounter unpleasant technical bugs and glitches while playing.
  72. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is a fun, bloody thrill ride on your first playthrough, but its lack of interactivity and a lot of little issues drag down the whole.
  73. Jun 8, 2022
    Quotation forthcoming.
  74. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry comes close to being Supermassive’s strongest successor to Until Dawn yet, but sadly stumbles when it comes to delivering a satisfying finale as the story fails to hit the high marks it sets up early on with its mystery. Still, for those looking for a satisfying horror game, graphic adventure or interactive movie to have a few thrills with, there’s more than enough here to deliver a satisfying experience, largely thanks to nicely-honed gameplay and a cast of likeable characters. Give it a whirl if interested, if only so you can play director even further once you finish it and try to find something new.
  75. Jun 8, 2022
    A gripping horror story, but one where the interactive elements struggle to sustain the tension.
  76. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry has everything that fans of horror and the studio enjoy, but nothing more. Modes for group decision making or just enjoying it as a movie add replay value, but at the end of the day it highlights how it's time for Supermassive Games to start innovating more in their storytelling.
  77. Jun 8, 2022
    With The Quarry, Supermassive heads back to the woods with mostly positive results. The story is not much to write home about, and the paring back of physical control of characters' actions leaves some empty spaces. Still, the cast is generally likable, the presentation impressive, and there's plenty of joy to be found in manipulating the lives of these poor young souls. The Quarry has plenty of thrills, chills, and kills, but also an abundance of filler.
  78. 70
    The Quarry proves to be a worthy successor and a notable release within Supermassive's lineup of branching-path slasher games. A frightful narrative full of tense moments creates a satisfying experience for horror fans, made even better when played alongside others. An ambitious amount of choice proves to be a double-edged sword as the game teeters on the edge of quality and quantity, with one particularly egregious mechanic dampening the experience for those who don't like to replay large chunks of a game. Though, despite its obvious shortcomings, there's a level of campy fun that's undeniable as the game engages from one freaky sequence to the next.
  79. 70
    All in all, The Quarry is an intriguing story that’s paced well and is tense from beginning to end, aside from a middle chapter that drags. I wouldn't go as far to say as much as I didn't enjoy it, because I did. In the end, it feels like such an over simplification of everything that Supermassive has achieved so far, to the point that I can’t see it as standing above their pedigree in many aspects.
  80. Sep 3, 2022
    The Quarry is a retread of the familiar genre tropes and Supermassive's own debut game, Until Dawn, but the quality bar is somehow lower than 7 years ago. Still, it’s entertaining enough for one playthrough if you like ”QTE movies”.
  81. Jul 4, 2022
    Like Supermassive Games’ previous titles, The Quarry plays out like an interactive horror movie. While the improvement in playability is welcome, the game does not provide enough interesting events and twists throughout its voluminous playtime, which makes the story drag. The game’s unique Movie Mode felt like a wasted opportunity too.
  82. Jun 8, 2022
    The Quarry is an interactive teen horror movie and it's not ashamed of it. With a captivating cast and focus on investigation, Supermassive's new venture into the narrative genre is less terrifying than Until Dawn, but just as rewarding in allowing the player to delve deeper into the mystery and piece together the pieces individually. This time, the experience is more relaxed and less demanding, built with the objective of reaching a larger audience than its predecessor.
  83. Jun 8, 2022
    A fun but poorly paced horror adventure that's both slow to start and over too fast.
  84. Jun 8, 2022
    Despite a slow start, The Quarry delivers even more ways to feel terrible when your actions fail a tropey teen (or six). It’s not as scary as Until Dawn but there’s so much love for the horror genre and you’ll definitely want to dive in to see how it could all have played out. If only you weren’t as trigger happy.
  85. Jun 8, 2022
    A game built on the message that your choices matter, The Quarry does very little to prove this design principle in execution. It’s a grand attempt at recapturing the magic of the developer’s cult 2015 hit Until Dawn, but rather than demonstrate growth for Supermassive, The Quarry makes it feel like the studio is trapped in the past. In this case, it’s an overemphasis on pulpy B-horror movies from the ‘80s.
  86. Jun 10, 2022
    Supermassive Games keeps giving us the same game every time and it’s simply not getting any better. The Quarry isn’t scary, isn’t thrilling and isn’t fun.

    Cinematic adventure made in Supermassive, with all his greatness and failures. Maybe the best experience since Until Dawn.
  2. Jun 9, 2022
    If it hadn't have been for that thoroughly unjust Rewind right at the end of my playthrough, The Quarry - with its stunning visuals, wonderful voice work, fabulous score, and intriguing plot line - would have been one of my favourite games of the year thus far, and one of the best horror romps for some time. As it stands, though, it's hard to feel anything but disappointment for a game that took all my time and effort and just discarded them without warning. It's one thing to kill off a character; it's another to kill off a player's enthusiasm.
  3. Jun 8, 2022
    As long as you can tolerate the moments where the veil slips and the story’s illusion momentarily breaks, there’s a great horror story to enjoy, full of satisfying twists, creepy characters, and tantalizing mysteries.
  4. So, The Quarry isn't perfect by any means, and you can throw in some QTE or choice moments that feel like they cheated you on top of that. But even if it were perfect, its full price entry sticker might still feel like a pretty big ask for some people. It's also not actually that frightening, if I'm honest. Instead, it goes more for "tense and thrilling" even at its most hightened moments. But The Quarry improves on almost all the flaws of Supermassive's Dark Pictures Anthology, and picks up the baton from Until Dawn as if all those years haven't passed at all. It's cool, creepy, a bit funny, and a great summer horror treat for anyone missing monster movies.

    Nobody does it better—and even Supermassive has sometimes done it worse. The Quarry is a welcome return to form, then, for the studio that created one of the most interesting and entertaining horror games of all time.

    It was the game with the most empty conversations I've ever seen in my life.

If the game takes 8 hours, we can only control the characters in 3 hours, there are tons of unnecessary scenes that can be removed in the story of the game, they just put it to prolong the game. Same story as Until Dawn, really not worth playing. Full Review »

    Graphics are good. So. Little to no gameplay. Dialogues are plentiful but empty. Choices don't matter. Always the same ending. The finaleGraphics are good. So. Little to no gameplay.

    This is just way below Until Dawn, Supermassive's worst game trying to mimic their best game.
