Until Dawn is a damn near perfect game, which just breathes horror on every level. The game puts you in control of a group of teens and terrifies you while doing so. This is a must have if you own a PlayStation 4.
I think I'm gonna pick this game up. I mean I've only seen a couple of 6s and below but those are from sites that clearly like to lower the scores for certain games (Polygon).
I guess this is gonna change the metacritic score lol. Who said PS4 had no games?
metacritic doesnt give true averages, dont expect it to go over 78. by my calculation its 81.5
Meta is bs, they are not legit, they choose what score the game gets. Regardless, Until Dawn has been getting so many great reviews.
I honestly did not expect these kind of scores for Until Dawn, really nice to see.
Me either! This game has been a long time coming, and im sure the devs are relieved to see its getting solid reviews. AAA horror on its way back, slowly but surely...
9.8/10 0.0 *Falls out of chair*
Great reviews. After seeing so many high reviews for this game I think I'm just going to ignore the couple of random low scoring ones.
Until Dawn...I think you're turned some heads.
So glad this game got good reviews!
This game will be streamed to death on Youtube and Twitch. Excellent job Supermassive Games, now Sony buy this guys please lol
Getting some good reviews, going to have to check it out soon.
Can't wait! I'm avoiding the streamers who already have the game. Bastids.
Sorry I hit disagree on my phone by mistake. Yea I agree I avoid anything I think could spoil it even minor ones. Going to be awesome to just find out on my own all the different outcomes.
Sleeper hit of 2015!!! Congrats Sony!!
Or just a plain old hit, this is a AAA exclusive that has been getting great previews/hands on feedback for a while. Until Dawn is a big legit game. Until Dawn is a HIT.
Good review scores but it can't be considered a hit until you start seeing what kind of sales it gets. There's been plenty of fantastic games that reviewed greatly that were never considered hits because the sales were not great
I preordered the game last night after months of details and trailers. I am proud to support Supermassive games and I hope that Sony includes them as a first party studio soon. Personally myself, I always wanted to play a horror game like a movie. I don't think a game in this genre has ever touched that and that's why we're seeing such great reviews. I think it's time publishers started taking a hard look at these underrated games and start being more proactive with motion capture and storyline telling. Also I would like to see it on other consoles as well as it will start a movement for better games in the future. Anyways I can't wait to play this game tonight midnight. Have a good one guys!
Ppl want quality AAA exclusives on PS4 in "2015" well here u go.
Stop it dude, PS4 has no exclusives in 2015 according to the internet, except for: Bloodborne The Order: 1886 Helldivers Until Dawn Tearaway Unfolded Persona 5 Everybody's Gone to the Rapture J-Stars Victory Vs Like i said, no games.
Axiom Verge, The Tomorrow Children, Galak-Z, Volume (console), Dragon Quest Heroes, Drake Collection, N++... I could go on, but sir ur correct "no games" indeed. The Internet is so smart. Until Dawn is an awesome PS4 exclusive, must be an aberration.
"Ppl want quality AAA exclusives on PS4 in '2015' well here u go." I just want games, and PS4 has a wide selection of quality games just like PS3, PS2 and PS1 did. "AAA" = One of the currently most overused and overrated terms in gaming.
I'm wondering when budget became a factor that qualified or disqualified a game from being part of a given console's library. More importantly, I wonder WHY. Does Until Dawn need to cost 20 million dollars to make and market before it counts? Does it have to sell 8 million copies to be considered successful? I just don't understand where these arbitrary rules come from. And, more importantly, I don't get why they're arbitrarily enforced.
Weird reactions to this game so far 2.5/5 4.5/5 90/100 3.5/5 9.8 8/10 6/10 90/100 9/10 2.5/5 7/10 2/5 2/5 9.5/10 6.5/10 8/10 91/100 93/100 9/10 8/10 9.2/10 8/10 7.5/10 8/10 8.2/10 Most varied reactions I have seen for any game
Same, at first I was seeing all pretty much perfect scores but as time's gone by I've noticed a couple of 2/5's 6/10's, strange to see such a large drop from the 9's and 93's
Why is that strange? It's an unusual game that won't appeal to everyone so a pretty wide range of scores should be expected. Not to mention that there are always some very low scores from various sources no matter how well received a game is overall.
pretty much like Heavy Rain, its not for everyones. i found Heavy Rain to be a solid 8.5/9 out of ten, i really enjoyed it, so Until Dawn is mine tomorrow.
It seems a lot like Heavy Rain in this way. Mostly good scores, then some random mediocre scores. I think it really depends on if you like story-based games with a lot of quicktime events. It's not for me, but I can see why people find it appealing. I just hope the story doesn't fall apart like the ending to Heavy Rain.
Not that it matters but... Metacritic: 52 reviews, 41 are positive, 10 mixed, 1 negative. Seems like pretty positive reviews to me.
It's funny 'cause I was never into those kind of games (tried both heavy rain and indigo prophecy, but I didn't have the patience to finish neither of them), but this one is making me very curious. I'll definitely pick it up sometime. It seems great!
Have you played the walking dead or the wolf among us? Same sort of thing really. I love this type of game personally.
Walking Dead, yes. Pretty good.
