Friday the 13th: The Game
Top Critic Average
Friday the 13th: The Game is the closest you are ever going to get to being in a Friday The 13th movie. It's so realistic that I had goosebumps every time I saw Jason. However if you are playing alone it can get a little boring at times, and that makes me wish that there was a decent single player mode But with its authenticity this is the best Friday The 13th game that we may ever have and it will make every fan very happy.
– Friday the 13th: The Game functions both as a gleefully sadistic multiplayer horror title and a love letter to some of cinema's most beloved schlock.
One of the best horror film franchise games on the market.
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 horror fan's dream come true -- you can finally stab and smash your way through groups of horny teenagers who should have been paying attention to little Jason!
It certainly earns its mature rating, with a level of gore and violence that would make most people sick to their stomach, but for fans of the horror genre, this is their bread and butter. The experience of being Jason Vorhees is captured perfectly, and all of the feelings of panic and dread are still felt even after hours of playing. If you enjoy being scared out of your pants on a consistent basis, be prepared to scream.
The attention to detail this game possesses has been amazingly entertaining and nostalgic, pulling me in deeper and deeper every time I pick up my controller and hear the Ch ch ch, ha ha ha” sound effect over my Astro A-40s.
Friday the 13th is an absolute blast to play once players are able to find a match that they can stay in. With many different match outcomes and options for victory, I never minded being stuck as one of the counselors (though playing as Jason is still insanely fun). I recommend the game to fans of the infamous horror franchise, and multiplayer games in general as it is a relatively, stress free diversion from some of the other, overly competitive online games out there.
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.
