Critic Reviews for Friday the 13th: The Game

It needs more maps, but right now Friday the 13th is a gory game of hide-and-go-seek that's fun with funny people.

A thrilling and creative multiplayer horror, Friday the 13th's compelling emergent play is hindered by a half-baked launch.

When you're playing as Jason, this is unquestionably the best Friday the 13th game ever made. I really appreciate the genuine love for the franchise on display here. Hunting down players and executing them in spectacularly gory scenes is an homage that warms my lifelong Friday-fan heart. But the fun of its asymmetrical multiplayer-only action is heavily skewed toward Jason, which means you'll mostly be stuck playing as teens rummaging through drawers. Despite that lopsided gameplay and some pretty heinous glitches, there is some dumb fun to be had here – which is all the movies ever really offered, anyway.

When it's finished this has the potential to be a classic multiplayer horror game, but the state it's now the original movies feel like they have higher production values.

The cat-and-mouse gameplay is exciting and captures classic horror-movie moments – when the game actually works, which isn't often enough

Encounters between Jason and counselors should be the high point, but they're often just dull and repetitive

A week after launch, Friday the 13th remains the buggy and sometimes-broken game it was on the day of its release.

There aren't many games that can offer a camaraderie aspect to the survival horror genre, and Friday the 13th delivers in that regard. It could certainly use a lot more fine tuning and adjustments, but for now, it delivers on a solidly campy experience.
