Friday the 13th: The Game is incredibly fun and pretty terrifying. This game takes you in control of either a counselor running and fighting for your life or a blood-thirsty Jason. A lot of people had said that they thought the game was really one-sided, but I think it has since balanced well. Jason is really good, but he is beatable if you work as a team and try to escape before (a) everyone else is dead or (b) he gets his rage ability.
The game itself is really simple: online 20-minute matches of 7 counselors and 1 Jason. There are a bunch of maps and things change up each time. Many weapons and items and a few different escape methods. It sounds like it would get boring, but surprisingly it doesn't. Enough seems to change every match that it seems fresh. Despite always looting for needed items, there's always suspense and I can honestly say I've never been bored.
This game is a full release, but it is still being updated. There definitely are some bugs with Jason being able to grab you from a short distance and characters moving through doors, but overall it's pretty stable. The online connectivity can be a pain because it relies on a host to 'own' a session - if they leave for whatever reason, it closes. I wouldn't recommend this is you don't have or intend to pick-up PSplus because the offline content isn't really enough yet (I think there is more to come still).
Overall, this is a great game and I love to play it. For a long time, I was ignoring my other games to play Overwatch; this game managed to pull me out of that and simultaneously start a new addiction. I think the most impressive thing about this game is that it was started/funded through Kickstarter. The makers are true fans of the series and they designed the game to give the fans what they wanted.
Only reason I think there are so many negative reviews are when the game first came out it was super buggy. Assuming the ppl probably never came back to update reviews. In any event I have to say this is the most accurate depiction of the movie translated to a game that I've ever seen. Is it glitchy? Yes, but it's not awful and the game is entertaining enough to look past. You get perks for the counselors in an attempt to level the playing field, but let's be fair, you don't have much of a chance with Jason on your ass.
Each counselor gets their own attributes and you can use perks to offset their weaknesses or add to their strengths. There are 5 levels of each perk and they range too much to say from car speed to melee damage or fear resistance.
Playing as Jason is awesome most of the time. He can be a bit frustrating, but he usually pulls through. Overall between the original score from the movies, the variety of kills you can buy and perform (which are very cinematic btw) makes this game very much like playing a movie. Each round is unique and communication is ideal to beat Jason but can be done without.
I think if they never improved upon the franchise this game would serve it justice. The one thing I will say I wish they could work on is hit detection as it can be a bit frustrating, but perhaps they did this to add to the intensity and realism of not landing every blow due to fear or Jason's mannerisms being a bit clunky since he's dead and one track minded.
As a huge fan of the series I'm mostly satisfied. Also they just added single player offline so you don't need a ps+ subscription. You can work on your skills and earn xp here to upgrade. Hope this helped someone.
