UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD
released OUT NOW!
Reviewed on Ps4
Virtual reality is simultaneously the best and worst thing to happen to horror gaming. On the one hand, it means you can pop on a headset and immerse yourself in terrifying worlds handcrafted by developers; but on the other, why on earth would you want to do that?
Spinning-off from last year’s PS4-exclusive original, this gory helping of Until Dawn changes tactics from a choose your own scare-venture to an on-rails ghost train with pistols. Don’t let that put you off though – Rush Of Blood is a truly horrifying jaunt into madness.
It doesn’t matter what you’re afraid of, there’s something here to frighten: cackling clowns, frozen mannequins that come to life, enormous spiders, and even a darkened abattoir full of pig corpses that just won’t stay dead.
This is a new level of frights in horror gaming. The developers know what makes you tick in VR, understanding that leaving the inside of your minecart empty for the majority of the game will make it even worse when things creep in alongside you. Yes, the last level descends into Z-list horror, but this is the scare game to beat on PS VR. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Louise Blain
The sound of rushing wind as the ride hurtles along was made by blowing into a mike, then modulating the recording.
It’s okay, we’ll try next door thanks…
