    It might not be considered a breakthrough a couple of years down the line, but today Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is THE experience everyone should witness and a perfect example of what VR can and should do.

    With more fear than most games in its menu sequence alone, this is a masterclass in frights. [Dec 2016, p.81]

    Until Dawn: Rush of Blood represents cheap thrills for people prepared to let go and buy into the scares. If you can do that, this is one of the best games out there for PSVR. A short and linear light gun game but spectacular, scary and oh so satisfying.

    A solid introduction to VR scares, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a surreal and creepy experience that keeps you on the edge of the seat, though more could have been done to take horror games to the next level.

    It's not a long game, but there are different routes to explore, and multiple difficulty settings with online leaderboards to entice you back. As with the main game, though, it's the jump scares that are the real stars here – and they help this likeable launch title live up to its name.

    In this experiences theme park which is PlayStation VR there are better shows than this horror train mixed with shooting that is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. If you keep up with its own low expectations and its average duration, it can be enjoyable yet scary, even more if you pay it with two PS Move controllers.

    Rush of Blood can be completed in roughly an hour and a half, and though you can unlock a few alternate paths in a couple of levels, they generally lead to more of the same--just in a different arrangement. Rush of Blood has a disturbing flavor overall, but that alone can't save what amounts to a largely predictable experience filled with straightforward action, dumb enemies, and predictable frights.

    I bought this with the Playstation VR when it came out on Thursday. I can't say enough how freaking cool this game is. I love it, my wifeI bought this with the Playstation VR when it came out on Thursday. I can't say enough how freaking cool this game is. I love it, my wife loves it, my son loves it (but won't play unless someone is in the room with him since he gets scared). I have let a couple neighbors try it...It's just awesome...I don't know what else to day honestly. It is not a long game by any means, but for 20 bucks, it is WELL worth the price of admission. I just finished the campaign and am ready to go back through again, but have been told by my son that it's his turn to play some more....anyway, if you get the VR, make sure to pick this one up as well.

It doesn't make me nauseous like other VR games and it is a good implementation. It got to do with sitting still and the roller coaster moving you. The PSVR is a low end / affordable headset but I hope they will update its screen resolution in future versions. Expand

    If you ever wandered how your nightmares would look like running towards you- this is the game for you.
    Clowns, spiders, ghosts, zombies, all are terryfing and scary and you can't run away. Trapped into a rollercoaster from hell you dive into this twisted spin-off of the original Until Dawn and have to fight (with guns) your way to the end.
    It spawns seven levels of terror, each more difficult than the last.
    Even if at first it seems like there is no story to the game, it apparently keeps the trademark of butterfly effect, but I will leave it to you to discover what exactly are the choices that will change your gameplay experience.

    A must buy for the VR, worth every penny, maybe the only downside to the game is that it relies to much on jump scares without realising that a bloody clown running towards you with a knife is scary enough.

You're going through an abandoned amusement park shooting targets and other creepy targets. I got some motion sickness during the fast movement of the roller coaster, but not overwhelming and didn't last long. My only knock on this title is that reloading so many times an start to hurt your wrists. Expand

    An extremely fun VR game that has some problems. The is a bit repetitive and is a bit clunky. It's still a fun adventure game.
