The story of Man of Medan starts off on a dive boat in the South Pacific. With a rumoured WWII wreck to find, and plenty of on-deck partying to be had, our group of 4 young Americans and their skipper Fliss get ready for what should be the trip of a lifetime…but it doesn’t go quite to plan. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, they find themselves trapped on board a ghost ship. Subjected to unimaginable stress and terror, they must try to find a way to escape the ship and its sinister history.

Man of Medan tells a familiar story in a fascinating way, and even moreso with a partner.
All in all, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Episode 1 - Man of Medan is a worthy follow-up to Until Dawn. It hits a lot of the same notes, and it's clear the developers understood the group appeal of watching-slash-playing a cheesy horror film with friends. There are still some weak points, but Man of Medan shows a willingness to learn from the previous game's mistakes and leaves us curious to see the next part of the anthology.
Man of Medan may not be as long as Until Dawn, but it’s got a ton of replayability and makes the most of the choices it offers its players. The co-op mode is an exceptional addition to a great formula, and the fact that there are two “cuts” of the game is just icing on an already delicious cake. Supermassive has done great work here, and for a budget price, you really can’t go wrong. Now I just need to round up my friends. We’ve got a ghost ship to take care of.
