PS4 Game Review - Until Dawn

.
Until Dawn is a PS4 Exclusive interactive adventure survival horror game where the choices you make affect the story later on.
Example without to much detail on who and what and where: I chose to shoot someone to save the character I was playing at that time, turns out the gun was shooting blanks. The person I was later on in the game was in trouble and the person I shot (who survived) got that character killed.

The story is about 8 friends who stay at a cabin in snowy mountains where two girls who were part of the friend's group went missing 1 year ago. The friend's find them selves under attack by a psychopath and then later on a curse that has released monsters that try to kill them and can succeed depending on your choices. The game has 10 chapters and every chapter apart from chapter 1 starts with a "Previously" which shows a quick clip of your choices.

This game is free for the PS4 Plus Members for July's set of free games.

It has a lot of jump scares and shocking moments. It really is stomach churning because of the gore. There are multiple endings depending on who survives/how many survive if all characters survive or none at all. My first play through well I tried to keep all characters alive until I messed up so I thought I would try and get them all killed and well of course 1 survived.

The graphics are amazing. The story is good. The music/background noise and voice acting were very good. The camera and moving controls aren't the best but they are durable. I wish the characters could move a little faster when you are controlling them. There is running scenes but when you are exploring it's walking. You can speed up the walking but you don't really see a difference.

Overall this game is amazing and if it wasn't free and I found out about it I would probably actually buy it on the PS Store. I'm not really into horror games but this one was a VERY good horror game that actually did good jump scares.

If you play this, it is best to play it in the dark and have a headset or earphones in and have it loud. Makes it more creepier.

NatashaT1994 Yeah. Nemisis I have to admit that had heart racing moments when he chases you and the start when you're in that building trying to get out and he is banging on the door trying to break through.

ze2000 It was the unknown, at that time Zombies were like "meh, zombies...". It's thanks to that game that we have zombies everywhere now.

I was more of a Tomb Raider guy anyway.
