Until Dawn (2015) review
by xXWoodinatorXx

I can’t wait to lead these kids to their deaths.

I don’t know why the mechanics are so slow. It shouldn’t be so awkward to pick things up and spin them around. The camera angles also don’t feel effective.

The best part so far is the psychiatrist. He has kept me playing.

As the game has gotten more hectic it has become more enjoyable. I actually am enjoying the dumb fun B movie horror vibes a bit now. For awhile it was pretty bad.

I liked it a bit less when it was just the monsters. The ending wasn’t that great either. I don’t feel the butterfly effect like they were saying. It felt more like meaningless questions most of the time and your decisions change who does certain things or how they die.

Final Score: B-

Great graphics, great story and wonderful atmosphere. The actors nail absolutely their roles.
Gameplay wise this is the peak of the interactive movie kind of game

Not as good as dark pictures, but still good.  Rami and Hayden are definitely in it.
The masterclass for interactive movie games

«That ending!»
  Pretty fun but the ending was a little underwhelming
Until dawn is a good interactive drama which reminds of great survival horror games such as Resident Evil. The script and acting got me engaged even when slashers are not my favourite theme. The graphics and atmosphere are cool, specially how the camera is placed in certain scenes . The quick time events (QTEs) are great fun and not difficult. I was motivated to start a second playthrough (starting at episode 4) right after finishihg my first one, but I did not get any additional trophy . The game is good enough that, after reading the trophy guide, I might play again to get the "They All Live" and the "This Is THE End" trophies ;)

Everything I wanted it to be and more, truly a special experience. Not to be missed. I loved it so much I beat it twice in the same week.
For this kind of games is that just buy my ps4, use xbox from the first generation but the sony exclusives are much better. Great graphics, a story that can be a total cliché if you're a fan of this genre of movies but it keeps you stuck and prevents you from waking up from your console, I liked the interaction through the dualshock 4, and yes, just in 2018 I'm playing it. Without a doubt, a great exclusive of Playstation.
