    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.

    I LOVE Until Dawn. Apart from the excellent acting and the genuinely scary moments in the game, the butterfly-effect mechanic was justI LOVE Until Dawn. Apart from the excellent acting and the genuinely scary moments in the game, the butterfly-effect mechanic was just beautifully implemented. There are so many different ways you can screw up- and while some butterfly effect games go for more predictable routes (i.e. "be a good person and everything will be chill") this one really brings some chaos into it; you can't take for granted that doing the "nice" thing is what's going to keep your characters alive.

    Waiting over a year for this game to be released i had high expectations on a game i felt would ultimately fall short and leave meWaiting over a year for this game to be released i had high expectations on a game i felt would ultimately fall short and leave me disappointed.
    Boy was i wrong! The graphics and visuals are truly stunning, immersing you into the game from the very start. Beautifully crafted scenery, facial recognition, lighting and textures all add to the game and make it feel like you're in a movie.
    The character played by Hayden Panettiere is lifelike, the movement, the voice, the facial expressions. If you were a fan of heroes, you'll know what i mean.
    The game sets on you a path where, in honesty you are on rails following the story through to its completion. Every chapter has decisions and events where you choose the destiny of certain characters. This make it immersive and i have fully enjoyed every minute I've spent.
    Its scary, jumpy and leaves you wondering when the next twist int he plot will happen. Each 'jump scare' moment it recorded and you can watch back as you literally jump out of your chair.
    Overall the game is amazing, id not change anything and also look forward to see if the do a Morpheus edition.
    Highly recommended

Until Dawn does an excellent job making you feel as if you are truly in a horror movie. Every decision you make comes with a consequence. That consequence can either good or bad. The graphics are great and the story line is just as good. I was not a fan of the camera angles. That is the only reason I felt I could not give the game a 10. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Story pretty generic, but this game was one of the trademarks for having choices affect characters either living or dying by the end of the game. Interesting concept, solid execution, good overall. Expand

    Tipica película interactiva a la que nos tiene acostumbrados Sony. Al menos el argumento es mejor que las películas de David Cage.
