It's not easy to keep everyone alive in Man of Medan, and you won't necessarily want to, especially in 2-player co-op.

At its best Man of Medan delivers a confident and well crafted horror experience with a genuinely clever two player mode. But it's unbalanced pacing has a little too much opening filler and an unsatisfying conclusion.

With Man of Medan, Supermassive builds on the foundation established in 2015's Until Dawn. While the core of the game remains the same, driven by dialog, choices, and quick-time events, the developers has added some multiplayer action to the mix. The two-player online Shared Story is the primary highlight here, allowing two players to simultaneously determine the course of the story. Unfortunately, the story itself isn't as good as the horror yarn spun in Until Dawn.

Despite its technical shortcomings, Man of Medan is a decent maiden voyage for Supermassive’s new Dark Pictures Anthology series.
