    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Of recent I have enjoyed Life is Strange and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture - two games of which use an extensive narrative viewpoint in their own unique ways, coupled with varied elements of gameplay to stunning effect. It has been up to this point that I have wondered how would it turn out if such stunning effect were applied to a game in the horror genre Expand

Until Dawn is perhaps David Cages final big bre-...wait, this isn't a David Cage game? Heh... terribly tasty. Anyways, I love this game to death and back. With a humorous yet intense story, a cheesy nature that is taking itself way to seriously, and visuals and sound design needed to make a good horror game great, Until Dawn will be one of the best experiences from the gaming industry this year, and perhaps, for a few years to come.

    Until Dawn is an excellent game and well worth checking out. The graphics are superb. Atmosphere and environments on point, and has compellingUntil Dawn is an excellent game and well worth checking out. The graphics are superb. Atmosphere and environments on point, and has compelling acting. It plays as a sort of movie game so in terms of "gameplay" doesnt require much other than some quick time events. Most of what you will be doing is making decisions which will affect the story, and who survives.

    Keeping in mind that the game story is set as a typical teen horror movie will help you to oversee some of the silly things characters do (calling your friends name while in a dark and suspicious room). Its cliche like that but it knows it and doesnt try to be something else. As far as a horror story, it flowed seamlesly and didnt jump at irregular intervals as the story developed, which can be the case for alot of horror type games/movies.

    Overall, it was one of those games that kept me wanting to play. Any game that does that is a success in my books. Its obvious that a lot of effort went into this game, the attention to details in some spots is just applaudable.

    I give it an 8 because of some stiff movement, a few holes in the story (bound to happen anyway), and there can be some room for improvement in terms of character development.

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