Until Dawn: 8 / 10
So, let's talk about this game! If you're expecting some Silent Hell meets Tomb Raider, don't. Haha. If you're expecting some really awesome role playing game that makes you think like there's no tomorrow, don't. BUT. If you're expecting to play a 'sit back and enjoy the storyline' kind of game that won't make you press a whole lot of buttons to escape the protagonist, then you'll love this game. Haha. Okay, for real now. I actually enjoyed this game because I'm a huge sucker for horror flicks. So, this game is all about the storyline and how you get to choose what to do. It's exactly like Beyond: Two Souls where you're placed in exciting situations and you have to choose this or that and while the characters are running you need to press Triangle, then X, then Square.
Why the 8/10 then? It doesn't sound like an exciting game... other than the pretty good twists and storyline.
I gave it an 8/10 because of the production value. It was pretty obvious Supermassive went through a whole lot of effort and trouble to bring awesome animation, production design, and character design. I'm not joking though... the animation is SO GOOD. If you're a gamer, you'll understand this. It's amazing to see the 'responsiveness' of characters, especially when things get exciting and all. They did a really good job with capturing the little details of the real actors. Then, I'm a huge huge fan of production design in video games. It's fun to see the environmental design in games because it OBVIOUSLY brings life to the gameplay. Ick factor? They nailed it. Scary environment and tight spaces? Nailed it. Do I recommend others to play it? Not really. It's not for everyone, only because it's not the typical action packed-gotta memorize the controls kind of game. But if you're into horror movies and you like the kick, then you need to play this game. Gamer or Non-Gamer!
