The Quarry review round-up

The Quarry review round-up

The Quarry is launching on June 10th on Xbox Seris X|S and Xbox One. With PC reviews starting to land, we’ve rounded up the thoughts of a bunch of sources for you to get the lowdown on Supermassive’s new horror game.

Supermassive Games has long been making interactive horror adventures since its smash hit Until Dawn in 2015. In the seven years since, it’s been releasing shorter anthology games, but now is targeting a return to larger-scale titles with The Quarry. Here is what the critics are saying!

Supermassive Games looking to recapture Until Dawn form

Richard Wakeling: “Supermassive doesn’t shy away from the fact that The Quarry is essentially an interactive movie. The mechanics haven’t evolved since Until Dawn was released seven years ago, and that’s perfectly fine. The basic system of choice and consequence is still highly effective at building suspense and lending a massive amount of weight to each decision you make. Its characters are personable, well written, and superbly performed, ensuring that you care about what happens to them, and the story takes plenty of exciting twists and turns that make you eager to find out what’s going to happen next. You may only make a contribution every few minutes, but that doesn’t stop The Quarry from being a fantastic horror game and Supermassive’s best venture to date.”Kyle Wilson: “The Quarry is a wonderfully atmospheric interactive horror game that offers up some of the best acting performances in the medium today. The rich, intertwining narratives deliver an incredible story that you will want to keep going back to — especially if you don’t save everyone.”Kelsey Raynor: “The Quarry is not without its flaws, but by no means is it a bad game. It’s fun, it’s immersive, and the fate of Hackett’s Quarry truly lies in your hands. As with most games developed by Supermassive, The Quarry is best played with plenty of blankets to hide under, and possibly a friend to adventure through couch co-op m
