      At the time of buying this, $40 asking price may be bit steep for most with only a single game mode with 4 maps, one of which released the day the physical copy of the game came out. The only balancing issues that I feel need addressed are Jason's grabs being use-able immediately on teleporting and the counselors break away mechanic pretty well only working if you're the lucky on that got pulled back into the game as Tommy. Connection issues can be a nuisance as well, and high latency in games is regular problem. That said though, when the game hits on all cylinders it is absolutely amazing. The feeling of dread from the films is captured almost perfectly when you're playing as a counselor. Is Jason waiting outside the cabin you've just searched for the items you need to escape or defend youself? Did he set traps on the doors and windows to prevent your escape? The queues meant to let you know Jason is nearby also increase that tension. Music queues when he's within a certain distance get your heart pounding, and the flash of static when he teleports near you set you frantically spinning your camera. The opposite can be said of Jason; you're a force of nature, an unstoppable killing. You're given the tools to efficiently stalk your prey, but each iteration of Jason feels just different enough to matter. With the roadmap of expected updates published by the developer and the sheet amount of fun and terror this game has, I can wholeheartedly recommend a buy, especially if you're a fan of the films. Hopefully connection issues are addressed as well. There are more maps, counselors, versions of Jason, and some kind of single player experience on the way. I can't wait to see where this game goes.

      Has potential, but I'd skip it for now

      I really wanted to like this game. I'm a big fan of the movies and from what I heard (and what little I saw) this game is extremely faithful to them (the different versions of Jason and his strengths/weaknesses straight from the movies, etc.). I also watched some videos of people playing and it looked like a lot of fun, which is what really sold me on it. On to the problem, I could barely play the game. Getting a match together took about 10 minutes and half the time it wouldn't load. I play online games a lot and have never had an issue with my connection (100mb+) so I don't see that being a factor. On top of that, the times I could get a match going it was over within a few minutes and was buggy itself. I played around with it for about a week then had enough and traded it in on a promotion and nearly got all my money back. There's just too many good new games out and highly anticipated ones releasing soon to deal with this. On the bright side there's a content release schedule dating into next summer so I might give it another shot around that time and hopefully they'll have the problems fixed by then. I also noticed two updates installed (after the initial install update), so the company is working towards making the game better. From what I've heard it's a very small group of people that made this.

      Hide and Seek for Adults: the Video game

      This game is a lot of fun, and if you're a fan of those old 70-80's horror era slashers, well you'll get even more mileage out of the game. It's basically hide and seek where one character doesn't just seek, he kills. The game can be tense and scary, and benefits from the fun and thrills you'll get trying to work with other players online - then choosing the right moment to ditch them because hey, it means your life! My only complaint is as fun as it is to be Jason, he's almost TOO powerful at times. But it just makes it that more of a rush when you get to escape - or come oh so close. The game's servers and some other elements have been a bit buggy - this was a crowd sourced game without the benefit of a big company backing it - but they've done a great job of continually smoothing out issues, and adding new content.

      Jason is coming!

      I'll admit that I was a little sketchy about trying this game out. Especially worrying about how you can turn this franchise of films into a respectable video game. Not a disappointment at all! In fact, there were moments that I got so scared that I jumped out of fear when Jason would approach. The scare element is definitely here and actually make you think about what a person would do in these type of situations. Even the kills are very elaborate that make this game worth checking it out. Of course more improvement need to be made. Like with easier gameplay and such. But, once you get the controls down then your odds of survival are a lot better. Or if you end up playing Jason. Then, the camp counselors don't have a chance on you. Amazing game!

      Good game, but online only. Unfair matches.

      Being online only takes off 1 star automatically according to my criteria. Beginning from level 1 against players with level 30 up to 101 makes it a bit frustrating and unfair. This may help you understand what to expect from this game since is people that decides the fate of every player. Not to mention that I have encounter a few bugs on the game (already reported). Also people teaming up with Jason, which make it ridiculous and totally destroys the meaning of this game. Needs control over this unfair matches and unfair people in order, also needs an offline game mode in order to achieve excellence. Recommended for the true fans of the saga or the genre, since this kind of people seems to enjoy it more than the ones that only play to get a few laughs.

      Ok, i wanted to give sometime before commenting on this. i give it 3.5 outta 5. I was at 2 stars but they recently added Offline mode. u can be jason (only) without online. It helps a lot, the online is very unstable still. i have talked with others about it, it is SLOWLY improving. For a game that was based on online play it failed badly for a good while. There is a lot to improve on the game, which the game makers said they are working on it. So time will tell. It isnt a bad game though, just a lot to fix up still. And unlike most current games atm, No Micro transactions!! Once the online servers get more stable and patches for glitches, it would be a easy 4 stars.

      The game is a total blast to play, it takes a bit of patience to look past that host can leave and knock you out of your game or it can say connection error a bit too often leaving you without your earned points but overall offers a really fun experience. The music and atmospheric tone the game sets up offers a constant lurking fear that Jason could be around any corner as you try to survive the match. As they work to improve the glitches I'm sure it will in time be a 5 star rating from me but as it stand I almost gave it one anyway. Especially considering its an independent game made with such love and care for the franchise.

      This game requires strategy and cooperation from fellow players. It will take a few games to get the hang of it and you will die often, but teamwork will save you some headaches. There is also a small problem with glitches, but hopefully they will fix them in a update. It can also get pretty scary when Jason pops up out of nowhere. They have been forced to stop any new content on this game because of the on going legal battle, but it is still a must own title.
