Dead by Daylight can get its hooks in you, but it might not get you to stick

This just feels like an all around sloppy port that was quickly pushed out to try to score some cash off of Friday the 13th's bungled release. The console version doesn't even include all the download content released for PC, including the Halloween DLC with Michael Myers. The mouse-like controls in the menus, coupled with the fact that most all the actions are mapped to the triggers and shoulder buttons, makes it feel like whoever ported this doesn't play consoles to begin with (thankfully you can remap the controls). The bugs and ugly graphics might be excusable if the game were fun to play, but to me, it just isn't due to a lack of balance and the need to work with your team in an era where no one talks to strangers in online games anymore.

With the multiplayer horror genre slowly coming to life, Dead by Daylight stakes its claim as one of the frontrunners. There are plenty of interesting ideas at play here, straddling the line between familiar online games and something completely unique. However, the patience required  to learn the game will be too much for some. It's not a taxing game by any means, but the asynchronous flow and bold unusual will rub against common multiplayer mindset. There's also the pricetag to consider. As we saw with Friday the 13th, players are effectively buying into an experimental breed of multiplayer game that has yet to produce its first stand-out winner.

This console version of the famous PC game has some issues that make this installment a boring game without too much content for a single player.

A great idea that offers really funny and tense moments. Unfortunately, it's not as well optimised as the PC original and it lacks some more content.

Dead by Daylight "dies" a little in this console version which features several translation problems and works as a poor PC port of the original game. Enjoyable if you play with your friends, but it's all.

Dead for Daylight for the Switch does the bare minimum you'd expect from a competent Switch port, but performance issues make the asking price hard to swallow.

It lacks polish, but Dead by Daylight is a genuinely tense ode to 80s slasher movies.

Dead By Daylight is a fantastic concept that, in practice, needed much more work put into it. I love its 80s horror aesthetic and the occasional match can be thoroughly enjoyable. There are going to have to be a lot more changes for the thing to have any sticking power, however. Should Behavior continue to work on it, I could see Dead By Daylight turning into something I adore. Right now, it’s just not there.
