Summary

When eight friends are trapped on a remote mountain retreat and things quickly turn sinister, they start to suspect they aren’t alone. Gripped by fear and with tensions in the group running high, you’ll be forced to make snap decisions that could mean life, or death, for everyone involved. Every choice you make in your terrifying search for answers – even the seemingly trivial ones – will carve out your own unique story.

How the game integrates classic horror movie tropes was actually the best part of the game for me. It managed a few decent jump scares and made me smile at the silly decisions. But at 8-10 hours it just wasn't unique enough from the B-movies it was emulating to make it feel like the time investment was worth it.

After second and third playthrough, this game joined my all-time favorites and takes place easily among the best horror games I've ever played. It all comes together as soon as you realize the self-awareness and irony, with which it approaches the horror/thriller genre, and you as the player are set to prevent characters of doing all the stupid decisions you hate in your average slashers - or to make them decide even worse.

Really good interactive novel horror game. The acting was on point, the scares were there, and I really, really, didn't want anyone to die. I felt there were actual stakes for the characters.

And just when you think it's a horror slasher flick, they introduce the monsters.

Loved it so much, I played it through to get the other endings.

While Until Dawn lacks complex gameplay, it counters with compelling characters, astounding visuals, and a thought provoking storyline. A masterful fusion of art forms, Until Dawn is a refreshingly self-aware experience that no thriller fan should pass up.***A PS4 review copy was provided by the Publisher***

Until Dawn is a horror movie where you control the plot. Think of it like a Telltale adventure with a much better presentation. If you're looking for a deeper, more interactive title, this isn't it, but it does its best to make your choices feel meaningful. And once you've played Until Dawn, comparing your story with your friends' is pretty satisfying.

Until Dawn knows exactly what it is, and doesn't pretend to be anything more. In that process it allows for some predictable plotlines, hammy acting, and lack of meaningful choices, but I'm glad that it exists, and every horror fan owes it to themselves to play it at some point -- especially at a price cut.
