For all of its B-movie charm, Medan sinks more often than it swims

Waiting for the price drop but this review disappoints.

It’s weird how Until Dawn the predecessor of this game in the series seems to be better than this, maybe it’s also because they didn’t just release in PS4 but also Xbox One so they had less time for polish, who knows outside of the developer.

I completely disagree with all of this. I am consistently impressed with the graphics (sure the faces don't look REAL but this isn't a Quantic Dream game, it's good enough.) And the story, while predictable, is still totally fun if you're into horror movies. Totally love this game and can't wait to play future games in the Dark Pictures anthology.
Maybe I'm giving it a little leniency since the game costs $30 instead of $60, but I do feel like that should be taken into account. It feels much closer to a AAA experience than I expected.

I've enjoyed it so far.
I find your lack of faith disturbing.

This seems to be a pretty divisive game when it comes to opinions. I personally found the story, settings and characters enjoyable. It’s a more realistic looking telltale game basically. The script and voice acting at times is a bit cringe worthy but in general it was a very good to great game. Just have 3 achievements left too, and the achievements are a pain requiring way too many playthroughs but still.

7.75/10 for me

I just don’t agree. I thought this was the highlight of going so far for 2019. I’ve hated a ton of games and the story and acting was beautiful I thought.
Happy gaming.

I haven't played it, but I know I will disagree with this review. Just curious if the reviewer played Until Dawn?
Yes, I know I am.

I've played through it a couple times. Not amazing but I had fun. My biggest gripe - without giving too much away - is once you get the important item, the story ends pretty abruptly. Like, to the point where every time I'm like 'oh.. okay'. I know there are different decisions to make, but it's often jarring.

How do you make Until Dawn, a beautiful, deep and interesting game. Then follow it up with Man of Medan. Forget the story, I don't understand how it seems to look worse.

And as always, all the tasteless fanboys will protect the game no matter what. I agree whole-heartedly with the reviewer. The game lacks polish and is a pretty bad, predictable horror/thriller.
TRUEACHIEVEMENTS! Please add notifications about a reply, because I NEVER got my replies, so I probably missed like 100.

I loved Until Dawn but I have heard nothing but bad things about this game, granted I will still probably get it after it's been discounted out of curiosity.

I really don't like these horror games.
