Professional Review


Based on the famous horror movie series, it’s the chance to feel inside it. Download Friday the 13th: The Game to experience being Jason Voorhees or one of his potential victims!

Friday the 13th: The Game Concept 4/5

It’s not hard to guess that the game recreates the survival story on Crystal Lake. In this game, Jason Voorhees, that very maniac in the hockey mask, confronts the group of seven teenagers, hunting and killing them one by one. Depending on what you’re up to in any given moment, you can try either escaping Jason… or being him.

As the major antagonist, Jason has some advantage in abilities, like seeing the victims from afar, stalking in the shadows, and killing them the most brutal ways. You may find some specific joy while playing Jason.

But Jason is alone, and his potential victims can form a team. Yes, it takes some skill to avoid the killer’s attacks and to find some items enabling you to stop him. You can play offline, relying on AI-conducted teammates, or join an online game to act together with other human players.

Visuals Effects 5/5

Well, though it’s not as photorealistic as it might have been on 2019, it’s not so 1980s as you might expect it to be, according to its inspiration. It’s a third-person 3D game, drawn rudely, but set in a large detailed world. Maybe it lacks some blood and gore in its most brutal episodes. Yet the details, locations, even Jason’s appearance from the movies are quite recognizable, so the fan service mission is complete.

Audio Effects 5/5

As for the music and sound effects, they’re quite good at recreating the atmosphere of fear and hunt. It might be worth writing another Friday the 13th: The Game review just to pay attention to detail (alas, the author is no fan of the origin). But it sounds so authentic and 1980s that completes the immersion.

Controls 4/5

Controlling the game sometimes is buggy. Though it utilizes the traditional scheme of controls, it takes some time to get used to it. WASD to move, E to open doors and grab items you find, mouse to move the camera around; it all seems familiar, yet it takes lots of strange moves to get it right. Yet some reports that it depends on the overall performance, and on fresh PCs, it works correctly.

Replay Value 4/5

While offline playing may lack fun due to weak and predictable AI, it’s much more interesting online, coordinating with other players. It’s fun to replay it with new teammates, kind of like watching an unplanned sequel of the movie. Content packs revamping the appearance may fix the situation by changing the immersion, but it’s, first of all, a chance for movie franchise fans who’ll appreciate.

Summary

Probably the strangest thing about this game is that it’s not an official one, but a fan-made. So hurry to download Friday the 13th The Game, before it’s forced out from any legal sources after a lawsuit that already started (though it might never happen, but you better be ready). Online multiplayer will be a problem then, but you’ll still have it locally.

Conclusion

Though the game is quite ambiguous, its further functioning is questioned because of the lawsuit, so you better download it now.


Pros : Greatly recreated atmosphere;
Good for playing online;
Easy controls;
So 1980s graphics and music.

Cons : Few players online;
Predictable AI in single layer mode;
There’ll be no more DLC before the lawsuit is over.


Graphics 5.0

Gameplay 4.0

Controls 4.0

Replay Value 4.0


Average : 4.3
