Until Dawn’s game world is small, but Supermassive has made it as entertainingly hostile as possible. Its beautifully detailed cabin is huge, cold, and full of secrets, while the surrounding area features a sanitorium with a large morgue, an abandoned mine shaft, and a range of aggressive wildlife.

Until Dawn is a pleasant surprise, and something that fans of interactive stories will really appreciate. As a schlocky horror it's a success, but its fiction actually goes beyond simple slasher – even if it remains intentionally silly throughout.

As you explore the snowy mountainside, you do some light environmental puzzle solving, such as finding tools to start a fire or turn on the water heater.

There’s also a neat addition: bonus materials about the game. Interviews with the actors, details about screen-tests and some other stuff.

Until Dawn knows exactly what it is, and doesn't pretend to be anything more. In that process it allows for some predictable plotlines, hammy acting, and lack of meaningful choices, but I'm glad that it exists, and every horror fan owes it to themselves to play it at some point -- especially at a price cut.

Another factor that influences the story is the discovery of clues and totems. The more clues you are able to find, the higher the chance of survival.

This is a horror game, and because you get to decide how multiple characters handle situations, it quickly engulfs you within its world. You really feel a bond to the diverse cast; they all have their strengths and faults, but you become a part of them and their story through the decisions you make.

The game’s most important and prominent aspects are also its greatest strengths: character and choice. As you control the cast, you are given options that can lean into or against their personalities.

Silly, derailing second half

The sometimes sloppy controls will irritate, while the performance capture could have been better, but neither of these issues are nightmarish enough to pull you out of the popcorn flick plot, which is buoyed by the impressive, if not gigantically impactful, butterfly effect.

The camera frames scenes at odd angles, such as up from the ground or down from a ceiling corner, and sometimes ruins the action when you can't see where you need to walk to.

The worst part is the direction. Some scenes are awkward, some are overly long and silent.

It's unimaginative at times, especially in the shaky intro sections, as those long roads seems to be there mostly to pad the game. After all, there's only so many plain paths you can take in the woods before it gets boring.

I’ve played through the section three times and have yet to get through it without laughing. This is where being able to skip certain cutscenes would have helped, especially when replaying the story for the second time.

The way that your choices impact the plot works superbly, however an occasional cheap death can be frustrating.
