    Worst Game I ever played!

    Where to begin...ok so this is a horrible port of an old pc game that is filled with game breaking bugs and glitches that render the game almost completely unplayable. There is no way to save your progress or make a backup save and I have lost all my progress twice in a single month. The developers don't respond to any support emails or fix the save issue in any way even though they are supposed to give you points back to make up for the lost progress they don't. People have been waiting 4-6 months with no response or fix from them. On top of that the match making is terrible because they thought with an online only game lets make it peer to peer instead of using Microsoft's dedicated servers. So what you end up with is a lag fest no matter how awesome your internet is...and that's if you can wait patiently for 45 minutes to get into a match that only requires 5 people total. And when you are trying to run from a monster who is literally lag jumping around the match on his bad connection it is impossible to dodge or escape. Don't buy this game don't play it just walk away. I'd recommend buying an old school pack of cards and playing anything with them over this waste of time game. At least a deck of cards works unlike dead by daylight.

    Great style, matchmaking could improve

    This is a great 4 vs 1 multiplayer game, similar to recently released Friday the 13th game. However, in many ways I feel this game is superior. The suspense when the killer is near you, and the stealth element, set this game apart. Character perks and leveling up keep you interested, as well as the various killers. My only major gripe is the matchmaking. If you have 3 friends and want to team up, it takes a very long time to find a game, sometimes over 30 minutes. If you play alone, it only takes about 1 minute to get put into a match. Also if you play with friends, after a match ends, everyone is kicked to the main menu, instead of just putting back into matchmaking. So you have to send invites each game. Another small gripe is the leveling system and item selection cannot be done while searching for a game, which again can take a long time. It would be nice to set loadouts and perks during this period. Overall, still a refreshingly new game to play from all the cookie cutter AAA titles every year.

    Launch day was rough, with lots of issues finding a match, especially as a survivor. However, now, on day 3, it seems like that's under control. The concept of the game couldn't be simpler, but there are some varied strategies that you can employ for success. I highly recommend playing with friends, or at least in a party with mics. It helps a lot when you play with people who communicate. It's not the most beautiful game, but it does a fantastic job of building tension and keeping you on your toes. Barely escaping the killer and sprinting out the gate to escape is truly an exhilarating feeling. Can't wait for the Michael Myers DLC!

    Great concept that falls a little short.

    It has the tension,the scare factor and a good setting and atmosphere just the gameplay and controls and overall feel aren’t bad but they fall short of matching Friday the 13th in its overall creepy and tense environment. I don’t think its bad by any means but it could have been a triple A hit. I recommend but don’t get your hopes too high.

    I was on the fence about this game but my friend asked me to buy it to play with him. I pre-ordered it not knowing what to expect. Tbh it's a blast to play killer or survivor it's something new which is a plus. I didn't buy the Friday 13th game which now I'm regretting. For $30 and some fun & some scares you'll love it. So far only couple issues joining lobbies - mostly because hours I play but switch to killer & instant join. Buy it it quite addictive

    this game is awful, it is so bad and buggy, the game is also boring when it actually works, beat survivors with a weapon they fall down and try to get them and put them on the hook and beat them while they are on the hook and don't let them escape and stop them from starting the generators, the gameplay is bad just bad, the graphics are 2006/2007 xbox 360, the textures look awful, I played two rounds of online before selling it

    There is nothing really wrong with the game. Myers and Freddy are cool additions, though i was missinformed when ordering the game. I was told by a sales associate at best buy that the game had single player and that was the only reason I got it. If you like oline play only then this is for you. But if not dont buy because it has no single player.

    Become a Killer!

    My teenaged daughter asked for this game for Christmas. I haven't played it, but she seems to love it. The premise of the games is that you and others are trying to escape from a killer. The cool thing is that one person can play the killer. Graphics don't seem all that great, but the gameplay seems good. Probably a game you would primarily play online.

    As a whole I find Dead by Daylight to be a fun - suspenseful game. I played it on the pc first and it was so good I just had to have it for console too. But while the game is still fun on console, the lower frame rate and resolution were quite noticeable. But all in all I do not regret buying it for the console.

    I bought this as a gift for my daughter, but I returned it because she wanted the PC version. I gave it 4 stars because the game sounds really fun, and I would have kept it if it had a couch co-op option, but it is really only a live multiplayer game.

    Game is certainly not the best looking game out there, but it makes up for it in tension and fun factor. Great low price for many hours on MP online fun. Add on's are a bit expensive like Freddy and Halloween packs, but not needed to play. Wait for a sale on those.

    I bought this thinking it was the Friday the 13th game, but it's not. It's got a similar play style but this game is MUCH more indepth and cheaper to boot. I haven't even scratched the surface yet and I'm having a ton of fun. Survivor or killer, both get your heart pumping.

    It's the fame Friday the 13th wanted to be. The active player base is pretty hardcore, expect a brutal learning curve as you pick up the basics. If I had more friends to play with it might warrant 4 stars, but playing with randoms isn't terrible. Buy it on sale.

    Decent Asymmetrical Multiplayer

    This game is a little rough around the edges, but overall its a fun asymmetrical multiplayer. My biggest complaint is that, for a horror game, it really isn't scary at all. Still fun to be had.

    If you're a horror fan, buy this. Maps aren't as large as Friday the 13th, but this game sells for $24 if you have gamers unlocked rewards program. I never played the title on PC, but hearing friends talk about it, sold me instantly.

    I hope I don't raise any serial killers, but this is a fun game that requires teamwork. Kind of creepy, but overall its fun and challenging for the slayers and/or victims. Love the Freddy Krueger dlc....
