Good fun with friends, although poor servers are ruining the game.
6 June 2017 | by evilfuk1See all my reviews

I recommend this game. It's easy to pick up and play, it incorporates all the best feel of camp crystal lake and none of the more questionable future instalments.

It's up to 8 players or you can have a private match, Jason is randomly assigned unless the host chooses, it's always random in the public match. If you're not Jason you gotta work together to escape by acquiring buildables, like a car battery, phone the police, escape on the boat or simply hide! Calling Tommy Jarvis brings a dead character back after two have been murdered in a variety of ways.

The developers are actively trying to improve the servers as currently one in two games will crash, leaving you with no XP to roll perks or unlock Jason's moves. This is the main downfall which hopefully will be rectified soon.

New content is due every couple of months which no doubt will improve the game further. The controls are fine, some of the mechanics are a bit ropey but that kinda adds to the experience! If you game regularly with 6 to 10 people then get this game, definitely a good laugh if nothing else.
