6.9 / 10.0

When you're playing as Jason, this is unquestionably the best Friday the 13th game ever made. I really appreciate the genuine love for the franchise on display here. Hunting down players and executing them in spectacularly gory scenes is an homage that warms my lifelong Friday-fan heart. But the fun of its asymmetrical multiplayer-only action is heavily skewed toward Jason, which means you'll mostly be stuck playing as teens rummaging through drawers. Despite that lopsided gameplay and some pretty heinous glitches, there is some dumb fun to be had here – which is all the movies ever really offered, anyway.

No Recommendation / Blank

A thrilling and creative multiplayer horror, Friday the 13th's compelling emergent play is hindered by a half-baked launch.

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.

When it's finished this has the potential to be a classic multiplayer horror game, but the state it's now the original movies feel like they have higher production values.
