Until Dawn is a survival horror game but with an interactive movie feel to it. Does this game scare the pants of us or leave us bored to tears in our seats? Let’s find out
Story: A year after two sisters disappear at a cabin in the mountains in Alberta there seven friends and brother go back to the cabin but what awaits them is a night of living hell. You take control of seven college students or high school students each of them either has a crush on someone or has there significant other with them and with any situation like this there is some drama. Each of these couples are using anyway they can to get away from the others to other kiss, make out or even have sex. Shortly after all these teenagers get up on the mountain they notice strange things occurring up on the mountain whether it be a window opening by itself or a friend being murdered. The outcome of the game depends on the decisions you make in simpler terms they say it’s the butterfly effect.
Gameplay: You play this game like an interactive movie now there have been other games that do this for an example: heavy rain and beyond two souls. But none of those games do it like this one there is something so special about this game. As you take control of each character you find different clues about different things like about the two sisters who had disappeared a year prior to the current story there are a few other stories that play in to hand which I will not spoil. But as you go along in the story you find these totems that are marked by Danger, Death, Guidance, fortune. When you’ve collected all these they tell a very big story within the game (Spoiler).
Verdict: This game is truly something special in the gaming industry I have never played a game like this in my life as far as the horror goes I had jumped so many times while playing this game and I even screamed twice quite loud I must say. There was just something so unique about this game that I hope they do more and when I began playing it some sometimes I got too scared to go on for a bit or I could not put the controller down because I wanted to see what was going to happen in the story. This game most definitely has replay ability to find out the different outcomes in the story and to see what else you can find in the story.
I am giving this game 10/10 for the uniqueness of the game and replay ability to it.
Until Dawn: 10/10
Good job Super Massive Games
