Horror fans who've invested in a PlayStation VR headset will like this game so long as they don't expect an extraordinary experience. First, the good news: The game developers did a great job creating a dark, atmospheric, and decrepit amusement park. There are some legitimately creepy enemies, too, especially if you fear clowns, giant bugs, zombies, ghosts, and other things that go bump in the night. Aiming and shooting these creatures feels incredibly intuitive, thanks to responsive and accurate PlayStation Move controls. There's some variety between the levels, including a climactic conclusion worth working toward.
The not-so-good news: Repetition. The aim-and-shoot gameplay gets a little tiring after a while -- especially with the predictable "jump scares." Repeat a level and you'll learn when and where you can expect a pop-out thrill, which defeats the purpose. While it's longer than some other PlayStation VR games, some might not like that you can finish the game in a day or so. At least, as previously mentioned, you can go back and try to improve your score or opt for a higher difficulty level. It's too bad there's no multiplayer support, extra game modes, or other bonus content to help justify the purchase. The end result is that Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is good but not great. It explores what scarier experiences could be like in VR and puts your trigger finger and wits to the test but bores you with thin, repetitive play.
