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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dead by Daylight is a lot of fun once you get into a match, especially with friends. The tension of struggling to complete objectives while avoiding an invincible killer can't be understated. But the downright unfair difficulty for survivors can be discouraging, especially since you have to play a very long time to unlock useful perks to make things easier.

Whether you play as the killer or prey there is gruesome fun to be had, but this console transfer cuts too many corners

Dead by Daylight has the potential to become a cult classic among asymmetric games.

A rapid-fire take on the asynchronous multiplayer template pioneered by the likes of Left 4 Dead and Evolve, Dead by Daylight's scrappy aesthetic, unfair survivor loot system and repetition unfortunately detract a bit from the otherwise blissful fun of its video nasty style horror thrills.

The asymmetrical multiplayer genre seems to be a real tough nut to crack with each heavy hitter coming out swinging, only to be plagued by nuances that trip up the experience and expose debilitating cracks in the mechanics. Unfortunately, it seems that Dead by Daylight suffers much the same fate. It's honestly really good fun, but the more you play the more its issues rear their head and become points of ire.

The premise is amazing, and your first hour or two with the game is stellar, but the long term enjoyment you'll get out of it depends on what level of tedium you're willing to tolerate.

The PS4 version of Dead by Daylight has the same flaws of the PC edition: it's funny (especially if it's played with friends), but it also features a bad-balanced gameplay.

There is something great at the core of Dead By Daylight, past the mindless action controls and nagging glitches. The game is far from unplayable, but the persistent problems make it impossible to recommend for people who plan to play alone.

It might be short-lived and plagued by lobby issues, but Dead by Daylight is whip-smart, original, exciting and genuinely frightening. It puts you right at the centre of your own slasher movie, then asks you if you've got the guts and cunning to slay or survive. Only time will tell whether it can evolve into a long-term hit but, right now, it's a terrifying new entry on the multiplayer scene.

Dead by Daylight is a great game and worth playing a few rounds at the least. Unfortunately, be prepared to face some difficult challenges if your killer or survivors are higher leveled than you. Granted, it's, in my opinion, a much easier experience to play as the killer and advance, the challenge and excitement of teaming up with friends and surviving is much more fun. The cooperative experience combined with a great looking and ambient game makes for a fun package, even if balancing feels off at times.

Dead by Daylight is a solid, exciting multiplayer game. First hours can confuse and scare you, but the satisfaction from secrets and successful escapes make a great incentive.
