The Quarry Reviews
If it hadn't have been for that thoroughly unjust Rewind right at the end of my playthrough, The Quarry - with its stunning visuals, wonderful voice work, fabulous score, and intriguing plot line - would have been one of my favourite games of the year thus far, and one of the best horror romps for some time. As it stands, though, it's hard to feel anything but disappointment for a game that took all my time and effort and just discarded them without warning. It's one thing to kill off a character; it's another to kill off a player's enthusiasm.
The Quarry is a fun, bloody thrill ride on your first playthrough, but its lack of interactivity and a lot of little issues drag down the whole.
A gripping horror story, but one where the interactive elements struggle to sustain the tension.
An impressive technical achievement and in the right conditions an entertaining movie experience, but it's both a horror film that's not scary and a video game that's barely interactive.
A fun but poorly paced horror adventure that's both slow to start and over too fast
For the core game, I wish more of the action was in the hands of the player, but I can’t deny how enthralling the choices are, especially when they lead to absolute chaos. Once the frantic running through the woods begins, the dark mysteries and thrill of keeping people alive are powerful hooks that will keep you glued in suspense until the credits roll.
The Quarry picks up where Until Dawn left off, introducing another group of personable teens you'll attempt to keep alive. Or not.
The Quarry is a blood-soaked, brutal, and janky summer camp rampage
Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.
The Quarry is a celebration of horror with enough twists and turns to excite even the most jaded aficionado. It manages to avoid the tropes inherent with its summer camp setting by giving each of the protagonists a thorough opportunity for characterization and makes you care enough about each of them for their fates to matter.
Once the sun rises and the bloodbath ends, you'll be itching to play The Quarry again to see what other outcomes there are. this is Supermassive's most refined horror game to date, but it just falls short of snatching Until Dawn's gore-crusted crown.
If you are a fan of Supermassive and slashers, here you will find their most polished and "confortable" experience, with a surprising technical performance. Even so, we would have loved them taking more risks in the narrative department.

I had an absolute bloody blast with The Quarry, and I say this knowing that it won’t be for everyone. But if you like mystery, if you like running for your life, if you like holding your breath until the beast crawls after another victim...well, you’re in for a terrifying treat.
With dynamically branching pathways and some truly frightening sequences, The Quarry just might be my favorite game from Supermassive.
If you have about 8 hours of free time, The Quarry will offer you a fun experience with a touch of typical teenage horror from Supermassive. Its excellent dialogues and great performances from the cast keep the player captivated throughout, even if the core story lacks the depth to the end. However, for their $70 price tag, I'll let the decision counter run out.

The Quarry is Supermassive's best game so far, capable both to blend storytelling and interactivity and delivering a fine, standalone, cinematographic experience.

The Quarry is a light and fun horror adventure that exudes love for the genre. If you can, play it with friends.

As with most games developed by Supermassive, The Quarry is best played with plenty of blankets to hide under, and possibly a friend to adventure through couch co-op mode with you. Tread carefully.
The Quarry is a cheesy, campy thrill ride with a fascinating mystery at its core.
The Quarry is one of Supermassive Games' best titles, harking back to the glory days of Until Dawn for all the right reasons.
