Lovers of roller coasters, carnivals, horror flicks and jump scares rejoice, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood has it all! This VR based horror game will have you rolling through some of the darkest, most spine chilling rooms with only your akimbo weapons to fend off the evils within. The game takes you on a ride, literally, through different levels of terror while you fight off all sorts of terrifying creatures as you collect points from shooting them along with the occasional random objects and targets which help contribute to your next high score. The game is simple enough to grasp, while being in a cart on rails which takes you through each level you must keep your eyes open at all times as evil lurks around you. The 360 degree point of view forces you to remain active at all times, not letting even the slightest movements in your peripherals go un accounted for.
The game doesn’t pretend to be anything more than what it is, a fun to play arcade style shooter. What elevates it to the next level is the overall experience, small details fill your field of view paired with audio which resembles moving characters and other creatures as if they were really sneaking past you or ducking around a corner before you can spot them. This aspect of the game is done well, and where other areas of the gameplay may become repetitive, the audio and visual components really hold this game up. Shooting and aiming mechanics are very smooth and simple to learn, especially after the first level tutorial which any gamer shouldn’t have troubles picking up.
The game itself is fun to play although after a few playing experiences with little change it can be found repetitive and lack any shock & awe features which players might have hoped for in this sort of game. While the cart rolls forward on the tracks enemies continue to assault your player while also attempting to scare the living hell right out of you. While the targeting and shooting aspects remain smooth, it feels like this game was lacking a fundamental aspect which would have gamers returning for more.
A game with such features, similar to Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, could be Resident Evil 4 VR. While the game remains a fun, horror-arcade experience, it can become boring once players master their marksmanship skills and replay missions over and over. For those looking for a quick VR experience in the realm of arcade shooting style games, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a highly enjoyable game which really becomes what the player makes of it.
While this game has done a wonderful job with its details such as shifting audio cues and in your face animations, there seems to be a lacking element to turn this from an okay game to a great one.
For new VR players this might be the perfect game to hop into but after playing through numerous times it is clear that this game isn’t in the upper echelon of the all time greats.
- Detailed graphics, sounds and animations leave you both visually and audibly satisfied throughout the game.
- 360 degree range of view paired with seemingly mobile sounds will add to the shock value and heighten your horror focused senses.
- Lackluster gameplay experience overall, with a lack of diverse levels and experiences it is hard to say if this is a game which gamers will play for more than a few play throughs.
