"Until Dawn" (2015) was one involving and superbly made adventure game. Graphics were simply amazing - one of the best i've ever seen - lightning and etc - this is one amazingly looking game.
The story was good although nothing brilliant. If this would have been a movie, it would be an pretty good one i think, but as a game it does work. Yes there are many jump scare moments in a first half of the game when i was thinking "OK i got it, another jump scare", but on the other hand i think it was intentional as it adds up in a later game sections into creating a great dread sense and mood. All in all i really liked the story overall as well as this horror type settings. And this game is like watching a good horror movie in which you are making most of the most crucial decisions.
Overall, "Until Dawn" is simply a great game. There consequences to a decisions you made which most of the you will have to make in a split second. There is also one cool and also irritating control thing - at some point (and some very crucial points) you need to don't move - you can't even barely move your controller - at the first i found to be really fun, but when one of the characters got killed at the very end because controller kinda moved i was soooo annoyed - one false move and its over... Nevertheless you can replay episodes later in order to get the end or events you want, so its not a big deal. All in all "Until Dawn" is definitely one of the very best if not the best adventure cinematic games i have ever had a pleasure to play.
