Game Review: ‘The Quarry’ – HorrorFuel.com: Reviews, Ratings, and Where to Watch the Best Movies and TV Shows

In 2015, the world of horror gaming changed with Until dawn, a horror game that felt more like an interactive movie in which the players drove the story either deliberately or completely by accident. The team behind the shot, Supermassive Games continued to work on the critically acclaimed film”Dark Pictures Anthology” series that took over the mechanics of Until dawn and created individual games with unique stories. Supermassive is back with its own story to tell in the 80s-inspired interactive narrative, The career.

The career follows a group of “teenage” camp counselors who have to stay the night at the campsite after their outing is turned off. Ignoring advice to stay indoors, the “kids” throw a party of their own that catches the attention of someone…or something, in the woods, which forces them to fight to survive until in the morning.

Now on to the game itself, but first I want to thank 2K and Supermassive Games for making this review possible! Game controls are easy to use and remember that luckily there is not much you can do as most of the controls are only for moving your character, inspecting objects and using buttons/sticks for actions. fast events.

The game is visually stunning and atmospheric, whether early in the game when it’s daytime or later when it’s dark, some graphics come up slowly but not terribly to the point that the story continues with blurry landscapes. The character animations are smooth and their facial animations are as real as it gets in video games, a great testament to the actor’s resemblance to their characters.

As for the gameplay, as mentioned above about the controls, there isn’t much you can do except explore, the best thing I like about The career is that you can customize quick events to keep them as they are OR configure them so that all you do is sit and watch OR give you plenty of time to react.

As for the cast, the voice acting is top notch, don’t get me wrong, but I’m a bit confused by our main cast of camp counselors. The game’s official description says they’re teenagers, but in-game references were made that they were adults (at least college age) but the actors playing them are in their 20s and 30s, so it’s a It’s hard for me to play that, and seeing the characters dressed as high school kids, acting like high school kids, but with the faces and voices of actors who aren’t teenagers reminds me of that bit of 30 Rock.

Overall I really enjoyed playing The careerif you are a fan of Until dawn or the “Dark Pictures Anthology“Then this is for you. The cinematic feel, stunning visuals, stunning sound design, excellent voice acting and guest appearances from horror legends like Lance Henriksen, Lin Shaye, Ted Raimi and David Arquette are sure to blow your mind. sure, the replayability being high because you can go back and try different paths and try to find all the secrets that The career is holding !

On my scale of 1 to 10, The career is 9.5!

The career is available now on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S and PC.
