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.

Man of Medan tells a familiar story in a fascinating way, and even moreso with a partner.

Supermassive's Dark Pictures anthology gets off to a promising start, but this first nautical instalment winds up a little too promptly.

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.

Combining Until Dawn's style of mild horror with online multiplayer works great, but the actual story and characters fail to engage.

The uninteresting story has plenty of dull moments, but isn't enough to kill the thrill of trying to keep all of the characters alive, especially when played with friends

Man of Medan is a thinner, flawed follow-up to Until Dawn that is saved by its online co-op mode.

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.
