Though The Inpatient shines in a few areas, it falls short of what made Until Dawn one of finest horror games of this generation. I greatly admire and appreciate Supermassive’s intention with the direction of the game, but it’s far from the continuation I was hoping for. Between story and gameplay, it feels predominately sluggish and doesn’t benefit in VR. Here’s to hoping we receive a true sequel to Until Dawn down the road.

The Inpatient’s strong opening is undone by a rushed finale, and while the various plot permutations add replayability, they come at the cost of a fulfilling narrative. As a PlayStation VR experience, this is a fine-looking spook-'em-up with some neat innovations that help create a tactile world, but the story is far too fragmented and, frankly, flat to do justice to the universe it’s inspired by.

I came away from The Inpatient genuinely disappointed. There’s such a strong foundation for a narrative horror game in VR, but it’s never utilized in a way that is anything other than boring, especially during the second half. With little to do here besides moving slowly, I’d suggest just looking for a summary of the game rather than actually playing it. That way, you can get all the world building without any of the boring stuff.
