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.

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.

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.

Be wary of this game if only for its propensity to hook you. Jason has sunk his pickaxe into me, and he's not letting go, ensuring I will be playing Friday the 13th: The Game extensively for the considerable future.

A great opprtunity gone to waste beacuse of the lack of content, numerous technical issues and terrible servers. It offers great ideas, but they end sunk at the bottom of Crystal Lake.

Friday the 13th: The Game has a very interesting formula, but it needs to be polished in order to be completely enjoyable. It features the essence of the movies, but it has some gameplay issues that need to be addressed soon.

An ambitious and brave survival horror that suffers of technical limits, as well as of an asynchronous gameplay that goes too far in favor of Jason.

Friday the 13th: The Video Game, is a terrifying game based on the slasher film franchise. Despite knowing how to perfectly reproduce the atmosphere of the film, a unique game mode seems unforgivable.

Friday the 13th is a technical horror show redeemed by a fairly enjoyable core multiplayer experience. The nagging problem with that is that the stars have to align for players to achieve that experience in the first place. Time and effort will likely help make Friday the 13th a stronger package in the future, but time may well not be on its side if the player base dwindles rapidly.

While the concepts are interesting and really have something special in mind, the execution and technical issues really hold back Friday the 13th from living up to its own hype.

If Illfonic and Gun Media can rein in the many issues seen in Friday The 13th it will go down as a classic multiplayer game. Until then, it's simply wishful thinking.

Friday The 13th has a good gameplay concept, but it still disappoints. Counselors' gameplay is quickly redundant, and embodying Jason is cool but too occasional, but above all the game seems really far from being finished, and that's quickly frustrating.

All of that said though, this is to date the best and most definitive Jason Voorhees simulation that has ever been released, and for some, that alone might be worth the price of admission.

Atmospheric, but bugged and illconceived tribute to the movie, that would have been much better as an early-access game.
