Critic Reviews for Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut
Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut is an enjoyably addictive sliding puzzle game that although it can get repetitive has enough variety within its puzzles to keep you returning for more. Its cartoony visuals help to make for some humorous, murder cut-scenes that will either make you chuckle or grimace. If you're a huge Hallowe'en hooligan or a profoundly psychotic puzzler, Slayaway Camp is well worth checking out.
With its cute and delightfully grotesque exterior, Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut is an easily accessible and addictive puzzler that throws in '80's references where it can, by the bucket-load. It's jam-packed with unlockables, host to some brilliant synth-heavy music and doesn't shy away from some truly gruesome but equally hilarious murder sequences. There's plenty of substance here that keeps us coming back for more, and with the help of a continuous trickle of silly and over-the-top horror humour, we are hard-pushed not to crack a smile every time we give it a stab.
It takes a basic concept and never lingers too long on one idea, continually adding new and novel twists. For the several hours it will take you to finish, Slayaway Camp stays fresh, avoiding the common problems of the horror movies it draws influence from. Even when mimicking the absurdity of later Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies, it stays inventive and fun.
Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut is a very fun and highly addictive sliding puzzle/slasher release on PlayStation 4 that you should definitely try. Even if gore is not your thing you can tone down the violence and still be left with an entertaining puzzle release with a ton of levels to complete, so be sure to check this one out!
Blue Wizard Digital has done a great job with Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut. The game's graphics are colorful and charming in this gory killing adventure, and the music is brilliant with a mix of creepy music with some solid rock tunes which perfectly fits the game's atmosphere. The game even includes a Platinum trophy that isn't hard to get and that should take you roughly 6-8 hours or so at most.
Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut is as good as you heard it was. Thanks to a great wealth of content, not all of which is as exciting as others, it would be easy to get lost in the seemingly endless list of new levels and character unlocks, without feeling overwhelmed. Really, the game's biggest strength is how smart the puzzles are and how it balances a lot of content without feeling like there's too much. Unfortunately, some of that content feels underwhelming, almost like the game is ripping itself off.
