Greetings! You may know me as the author of the definitive Dead to Rights article (the longest videogame review ever – proving quality doesn't matter as long as you have quantity), the definitive Heavy Rain article, the definitive LA Noire article, and, of course, the still-unfinished definitive series of articles about Deadly Premonition. Then again, you probably don't know me, so consider that a super-self-aggrandizing hello. Point is, today I'm here to offer another definitive look at a video game – this time, it's PS4 interactive horror movie Until Dawn!

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
The subject of this
installment: Assembly Required, developed and published
by MUTT Studio.
No Happy Endings Under The Sea
