    "very good handling of images to generate fear, the situations of persecution feel real with the simple fact of turning and see if you are still persecuted, images are somewhat grotesque in some cases but in the end the idea is to terrify the player, very good graphics and interfaces are very good, invites the player to continue introduciendoce the game and get as far as possible and you leave that feeling of chase when you finish, does not give you rest you have to be very alert, excellent game"

    "If you are looking for a great PS4 horror game, you should consider Until Dawn. In this survival-horror game, you are able to choose who survives in a situation eight people are trapped and through the butterfly-effect, you can really enjoy this game and how the storylines can play out. I really enjoyed playing this game because it is a great horror game where you can make your own decisions. "

    "Jumpscares aren't that much of a good scare, unless they're timed right! This game is the perfect definition of a "timed right" and "not overused" jumpscare. Most of thescares you're going to get are because of the game's general twistedness, and I think that's beautiful :D"

    "Just no. If you're going to play a resident evil game, don't play anything past 4 and 4 was only okay. The first three resident evil games and the first three silent hill games define the genre and I think they're all available for PS4 through the virtual store."

    "A scary game to play at night, alone, with no one around. The story is engaging and the atmosphere is haunting, you never know what lurks around the corners or what sounds may bring a sudden appearance out of the dark. I enjoyed the overall experience of this game, the graphics are great, the sound is excellent, and the scares are quite tense."

The game is set in the 80's, just like the movies, and I love visiting Crystal Lake and playing with my friends. The trick is getting the right group together, but when that happens the game is pure gold."

    "Possibly the father of run/hide/escape horror games like Firday the 13 or the new incoming Hide or Die, this managed to get overshadowed by the other games due to better graphics and/or stories and/or fanbase. Oh well, it'll never lose its charm for me imho"

I remember among the countless horror games I have ever played, only Silent Hill series gave me the right kind of fright...until SOMA! This game comes with second to none graphics, innovative control and game system, scary music and sound effect, and most importantly, an awesomely awesome plot that really draws me into the world. Highly recommended!"

    "It's a great action game that all the fans of zombie theme would like. I'm a fan of zombie apocalypse and Resident Evil series in general, I would definitely try this one. According to what I know about this game, it's not just a shooter. Resource management component is very important here. You'll have to decide how to use your ammo, what inventory to take, and whether you should engage enemies."
