Until Dawn is an inconsistent horror game, but it's still a heck of a lot of fun.
Weird, gory and surprisingly moving - Sony's long-delayed slasher tribute is a flawed but memorable step forwards for "interactive movies".
One of the more successful interactive movies of recent years, but that's really not saying much given the lack of gameplay and horror thrills.
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.
Supermassive weaves an intriguing and exciting mystery with all the right teen-horror trappings
Until Dawn is a thoughtful game that exploits its tropes and sets up a system of mechanics and branching narrative that make for a chilling, irresistible experience.
Until Dawn isn't a great game, but it's compelling in spite of its huge flaws
A delightfully absurd choose-your-own adventure horror game that encourages multiple playthroughs.
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.
