    amusingly and frustratingly janky

    Okay, this game is not great. Hear me out though as it gets better. This is a game that definitely has its fair share of technical issues and / or server issues and is just downright janky. However, I say that only half-heartedly as it's in the cleverly designed nature of the game which is where you'll find yourself enjoying your time with it overall. It is supposed to make you feel underpowered and fearful of what could happen to your character at any moment. Being and using Jason well has a small learning curve while your rewards come in many gruesome forms with all the possible classic Jason kills at your disposal. It is a smaller budget game and it shows but if you like horror games / movies I'd say give it a try and enjoy it for what it set out to accomplish flaws and all.

    This game is actually pretty good, you get to play as either Jason or the counselors. It's better as an online game, so be prepared to have an online subscription. I thought the game was good overall, it just has a couple glitches here and there. That's why I took one star off, otherwise really good game play. Only other issue I and most of my friends had, was the little screechers that join the online game play. By screechers I mean the not old enough to really be online, and is always screaming and being rude. That has nothing to do with the game itself though, so you can't blame the game

    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.

    Think Hard About Purchasing

    This game has potential. However as of this writing (Dec 2017) you are buying into an Online Only Game. One that is glitchy as well. The game itself captures Friday the 13th well. It’s likw living in a horror movie. I like that. That’s brought down by bugs, online only play, and games that are abruptly ended if the host player quits. It has so much potential but until the single player campaign is added (which I guess is coming soon?) I wouldn’t get it. Unless you really Love Friday the 13th.

    I recommend watching some gameplay of this online before picking it up to see if this kind of game is for you. There is no story mode and instead the game has a multiplayer focus. The closest comparison would be the game "Dead by Daylight." The developers have said that they will continue to add new content including a single player mode in the future but as of now it has not been implemented.

    This game is unbelievable fun for both horror fans and non-horror fans alike! Play as Jason or one of seven counselors and try to survive the night. Pros: - amazing multiplayer - amusing, non-game breaking bugs - perfect for short pick-up and play sessions or all night binges - constant updates to keep the game new and exciting Cons: - server stability - no offline play (yet)

    Fun But Has Issues

    This is a fun game to play with friends as you run around killing each other, game loses a lot of that fun value when you play online with randos. Game is highly unbalanced in favor of Jason (as it should be really) but Jason is a tad too OP. Updates to the game have made it better but still has plenty of glitches. Free updates and new content does make the game worthwhile though.

    This game is good, for old fans that grew up with the movie collection and new fans of this generation. Its fun to see Jason can still scare my kids 20 years later. Graphics are dope, but i would suggest parents play game first and judge if their kids are mature enough to play it, because it is very bloody and graphic. Overall great fun game.
