Until Dawn

Critics Consensus (Play It)

While some find its linearity and familiar horror tropes repetitive, Until Dawn generally thrills with its branching narrative, chilling atmosphere, and top-notch production values. It’s a cinematic horror adventure that will have you screaming and scrambling for the controller, questioning every choice you make.

Game Info

When a trip to a remote cabin leaves eight friends stranded on a mountainside, sinister events make them suspect they’re not alone…Gripped by fear and with tensions in the group running high, step into the quaking boots of each of the eight terrified characters as you search for clues to the deranged killer’s identity. By making life or death decisions using the sophisticated “butterfly effect” system, everything you do will drastically alter the course of the story – and the fate of each character.

3.5/5 stars

As cheesy horror goes, you’ve never had it this pretty or entertaining but when it comes to a one off experience, Until Dawn is expensive interactive terror.

Weird, gory and surprisingly moving – Sony’s long-delayed slasher tribute is a flawed but memorable step forwards for “interactive movies”.

7.5/10

Until Dawn is an inconsistent horror game, but it’s still a heck of a lot of fun.
