The Quarry launches this Friday for PS5 and PS4, and reviews are starting to hit the web. This is the latest game from Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games, which has most recently been making The Dark Pictures Anthology with Bandai Namco. The Quarry is seen as a completely different project that stands by itself.

Below you'll find a selection of reviews from other outlets that are based on the PC version of the game.

Where's our own PS5 review, you ask? Simply put: PS5 review code of The Quarry hasn't been made available (at least to us) before launch. While we were offered a PC key for use on Steam, our site policy is to publish reviews based on the native PlayStation hardware. As a result, we still don't have access to the game just yet. We'll be sure to publish our own verdict as soon as possible, so look out for it in the future.

GameSpot - 9/10

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.

Wccftech - 9/10

The Quarry is yet another impressive title by Supermassive Games. While it doesn't veer away from their previous titles, their ability to write an interesting story with compelling characters is only improving. Featuring several red herrings and twists, The Quarry will keep you guessing and gives you an ever-increasing impact on how the story turns out. There are still a few niggles here and there, such as the sloth-like character movement and a few facial animation and audio quirks, but this looks better than ever and features an excellent soundtrack. If you're a fan of Until Dawn or The Dark Pictures games, you'll like this; particularly as the larger budget comes with a much bigger cast and a much larger and more branching story.

Game Informer - 8.5/10

For the core game, I wish more of the action was in the hands of the player, but I can’t deny how enthralling the choices are, especially when they lead to absolute chaos. Once the frantic running through the woods begins, the dark mysteries and thrill of keeping people alive are powerful hooks that will keep you glued in suspense until the credits roll.

Stevivor - 8.5/10

Those with a love for a good, scary story — or several — will have endless enjoyment at the helm of The Quarry. With strong writing, extreme self-awareness, exceptional performances all around (shoutout to Ariel Winter as Abigail, Brenda Song as Kaitlyn and Miles Robbins as Dylan) and a confidence that’s exuded no matter the branching path you find yourself in, Supermassive has outdone itself. There are still some rough edges, but you’ll quickly forget about them as its mystery pulls you in, somehow managing to keep you hooked even after you’ve witnessed a handful of its endings.

The Loadout - 8/10

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.

Pure Xbox - 8/10

The Quarry sees Supermassive Games back on top form with a spiritual successor to the superlative Until Dawn that comes mighty close to knocking that classic off its lofty perch. There's a fantastic cast of well-observed characters to get to know here, a narrative that packs in several threats and plenty of twists, turns and light-hearted moments to sit alongside its shocks and juicy revelations. With jaw-dropping visuals, a cracking soundtrack and plenty in the way of replayability in order to see every outcome on offer, this is an interactive horror experience that's well worth jumping into.

VG247 - 8/10

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 mode with you. Tread carefully.

Press Start - 7/10

All in all, The Quarry is an intriguing story that’s paced well and is tense from beginning to end, aside from a middle chapter that drags. I wouldn't go as far as to say I didn't enjoy it because I did. It feels like such an oversimplification of everything that Supermassive has achieved so far. I can’t see it as standing above their pedigree in many respects.
