    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.

    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 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

    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.

    Played the original on NES.Only a kid from the 80's can truly appreciate this game. I have waited almost 30 years for this game. It is everything that I can imagine and then some. It has some bugs but I know they are working to fix it. I can't wait until the single player mode update is available. I hope they add Michael Meyers, Freddy Krueger and or Chuckie as DLC.

    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.

    This game is very glitchy and unfortunately online only and doesn't always connect. That's the bad part. The good part is that it can be very fun after you level up enough to start unlocking items and characters. The game has some terrible collision detection at time and can be frustrating. If you stick it out it starts becoming a fun experience.

    Game allows you to reconnect with your youth when servers permit. being indie game expect some bugs and why waited till official product release, yet still disappointed with gameplay stability. one major drawback is can only play online, if single player mode becomes available greatly increase rating of game.

    I’m a Friday the 13th die hard fan and I gotta say this is my favorite game of all time. Gears of wars was on top until this lol. But now I’m heartbroken due to the lawsuit that’s going on. There will not be any more dlc for this and that sucks. But for true horror fans this is a must have.

    The concept of this game is fun. I prefer campaigns and this game does not have one. Was a little confusing to play but once you get a grip, it’s not bad. Spent time looking for people to play with. A little work, coupe have potential. I would recommend to friend just to have somebody to play with

    This game has come a long way with the updates. Its fun to play as either Jason or the counselors and I love that you can switch between 1st or 3rd person POV! Its challenging and you can really get into it. The short game sessions make it more exciting too! Great game overall. Worth the buy!

    Graphics are pretty good, gameplay could be a little more polished, it's a great game for a bunch of friends online. Recently they added a single player mode , where you play Jason trying to get the counselors . The developers are constantly updating this game, so it is constantly evolving. FUN

    This might be the greatest concept for a liscensed IP ever, and I was certainly looking forward to it. However, this game is a glitchy mess, with wonky controls and long, boring stretches. Would have benefitted from an actual single player, as multi gets old fast, like Battleground 1.

    Pretty simple game with its main objective to escape from Jason!!! Pros: Being able to play as a counselor and surviving from Jason's wraith. Becoming Jason and releasing havoc upon the counselors gruesome death scenes Con: No story mode, only an online mode game

    I was well aware that this game didn't have a true story mode which is a lost opportunity but the online game portion is really fun it just takes a long time to load between matches. One of my favorite things to do it die early and just spectate all the cameras to watch the KILLS!!

    Wasn't too sure when I got this game when I bought it but this game sure proved me wrong. This game is insanely addicting and I love playing it with friends. This game is definently a lot better to play though when you are playing with either friends or people who have mics.

    It's a fun game if you have a group of friends to play with. If you're solo it won't be as fun as the random people you are grouped don't always have mics. The frame rate drop is annoying as well as the lag you experience. Hopefully they patch the game. 3 and a half.
