Whilst Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is supposed to belong to the same family as the 2015 cult-hit thriller Until Dawn, outside of a few cameos from some of the characters, there really is no reason for this to be grouped into the Until Dawn franchise.
Instead, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, is a fairly competent lightgun shooter. You’re placed on-rails through a number of compromising situations and have to shoot your way out of trouble. Between all the jump-scares, you’re tasked with shooting a number of targets. It’s fairly simple and they do a great job of taking your eyes off the inevitable jumpscares that are about to occur.
The shooting actually works well, and surprisingly is extremely enjoyable. Your arms are well represented out in front of you and aiming works well. I felt overpowered having two guns, which potentially worked against the scare factor of the game. You’re able to increase the firepower of your weapons by shooting crates which allow you to have a slight power up for a short amount of time.
