Professional Review


Did you watch the movie Friday the 13th? If your answer is “yes,” then Friday the 13th: The Game based on the horror movie must be in the field of your interest. In this game, you will deal with the central character, Jason Voorhees, and seven other characters known as Camp Counselors.

Graphics — 4.5/5

Everything, starting with the opening screen saver and ending with the soundtrack, is imbued with the spirit of the eighties and those same films. At the same time, we can not say that graphically the game turned out to be excellent, rather just good. Especially developers have tried on the characters - their faces look suitable even for the AAA-class project. Nevertheless, the atmosphere of fear and desolation is present in the game.

Gameplay — 4.5/5

Friday the 13th: The Game is based on the self-titled movie and brings the atmosphere of the horrors from the 80s. The main feature of the game is the recreation of the atmosphere of those years. Storyboard, the appearance of the characters, sounds immerse gamers into the atmosphere of the past so that they will have a sense of a break with reality. At the same time, the quality of the image, sounds and drawing, in general, are up to the present level - it seems, still a little, and the main villain in the hockey mask will step with his bloody machete from the screen into real life.

The game takes place in the camp "Crystal Lake." Seven heroes live in this once-cozy American wilderness. Hopes for an incendiary vacation crumble to dust when Jason Voorhees appears. He is a hysterical and at the same time a cold-blooded maniac who set out to kill teenagers on the territory of Crystal Lake.

The player can both choose to play for Jason or the camp counselors. With Jason’s abilities, you will track counselors with ease. For example, he senses the counselors’ location and can even teleport himself anywhere on the game map. On the other hand, the counselors have some options to escape from the clutches of Jason. Playing in the team, they can fix the car, repair the phone box and call 911, and so on.

Thus the total number of players is eight people wherein one will be the assassin and others will be survivors. This sort of gameplay makes Friday the 13th: The Game an asymmetrical multiplayer video game.

Controls — 4/5

The controls of the game are intuitive and pretty simple to get used to. All you need is to run in a specified direction to escape from the brutal Jason if you are a camp counselor. Being Jason means to track your victims.

To procure objects in the game, you need to tap and hold. The instructions will be displayed on the screen. You can communicate with other players as well for more detailed instructions on the tactics.

Replay Value — 4.5/5

Like indulging in horror flicks? Then you will definitely love playing the characters in Friday the 13th: The Game. As you get the opportunity to play both Jason and the counselors, there are minimal chances that you will get bored. Hence, you can expect high replay value in the game.

Moreover, as it is a multiplayer game, you can expect suspense at all times. Thus, when the emotions of fear and revenge cloud your mind, you get hooked on the game.

Conclusion

Friday the 13th: The Game came out very raw in all respects. Its mechanics are not very interesting and, worse, is poorly implemented. The game is merely unfinished, and you can feel it in every aspect of its design, in the absence of the lion's share of the content necessary for any project. Sometimes it manages to give out tense moments and tickle the nerves, but most of the time the gameplay boils down to monotonous actions. Anyway, if you are the horror movies fan, you will be able to enjoy this particular eerie atmosphere in the game.

Conclusion

If you are searching for a movie’s sequel in the game format, then Friday the 13th: The Game is your choice. But if you come for unique playing experience, you won’t be quite satisfied with it.
