    The Quarry is a fantastic return to form for Supermassive Games. Every character stands out well on their own thanks to the fun and excellent writing. The monsters and villains, while not terrifying, are a very cool take on the Summer Camp Horror stories that we’ve seen time and again up until now. With just a little more refinement on the rough edges, there’s no doubt this game would’ve been a top 10 horror game. Even then, The Quarry is memorable, and I highly suggest you check it out, especially with a group of friends.

    This game is such a tribute to a beloved genre that it even contains rules that will help you to survive (if you bother to learn them.) It may not be the cheapest but it sure is an experience to enjoy. Having Jason’s ‘kill, kill, kill’ motif echoing around your head as you play it is not a prerequisite but it sure is fun.

    The Quarry pays homage to the slasher genre with more than just a spiritual successor to Until Dawn. Supermassive's new game follows the foundations laid by the 2015 title offering a continuist but equally fun game full of familiar faces, gore and shocking moments. An experience not to be missed by any fan of the genre.

    The Quarry is undoubtedly the best work yet by Supermassive Games, both in terms of gameplay and of plot ramifications and technical department. An enthralling experience that knows how to keep the fans of the genre happy, even if it suffers from a not so bold plot (especially on the horror side) and the temporary absence of an online multiplayer component. Yet, it's a title that every fan should consider for their collection.

    There’s a fairly big chunk of gameplay on offer in The Quarry and it totally deserves a replay in order for you to witness different endings and try to see if you can keep everyone alive - or kill them all.

    Supermassive’s The Quarry is a classic channelling of the same 80’s-era slasher/creature-feature appeal that made Until Dawn a success that players will still want to revisit multiple times.

    Where the similarly ambitious Until Dawn felt relatively seamless, The Quarry often feels as if it’s bitten off more than it can chew.

    Must have for all fans of the genre.

    Boring story and not that much gameplay. I played it once and did not feel like playing it again.

    Although a bit linear it's got a great story and cut scenes...
    However, the cut scenes are ridiculously long and you can't skip them (which is fine first time around).
    Their when you replay for alternative endings it gets really boring, like rally boring.
    They need to add an option to skip either on a second play through or chapter select.

    I want to 100%'this game to see all the endings bored self now... Think I'll abandon this one now after 20

    This is a really disappointing game as a huge fan of Super Massive and Until Dawn.
    For context I've played through the game twice (everyone lives & everyone dies)

    - This is far less scary than their previous work
    - A far less interesting story, with no twists or turns
    - A lack of meaningful choice (chapters 1-9 are almost identical regardless of what you do)
    - You are funneled down the same path every play-though
    - 90% of quick time events are meaningless and you cannot fail
    - Character relationships are meaningless,

    Positives
    - The characters are very deep and well fleshed out
    - Beautiful game with a great art style and 80s horror inspired themes
