Friday the 13th Game on PS4

Chchch ahahah... Chchch ahahah. The music starts to get louder as he gets closer. You can run, you can hide. However, there is a good chance he will find you, and when he does, there is little you can do to save yourself.

That pretty much sums up my first few games of the Friday the 13th Game released on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam for PC. I currently reviewed game this on the PS4 and let me tell you, it does not disappoint.. Well, sort of. If you love the idea of playing the role of Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies, you should love this game.

I say "sort of" because the servers for this multiplayer only game (single player is coming in August?) are having issues. Gun Media, the company that has developed the game, has stated that the demand has been overwhelming and the servers are having issues keeping up. They are working on the problems and it shouldn't be long before they fix some of the main issues plaguing them. Understood and fingers crossed.


Now, back to the game play details, if you are lucky to get into a game, you are teamed up with 8 or so other players. Someone is then chosen at random to play as the camp serial killer, Jason Voorhees. Out of the 10+ games I played, I was Jason about 4 times. Not to shabby on the average I guess. There are many Jason's to unlock as you progress through the game. From Friday the 13th Part 2 upward. Each Jason has different power ups and you can add different kill styles as you gain CP (character points?)


The killings are brutally awesome. From the head squeeze, to the spear in the face. I love every one of them. It is so entertaining to just watch a match as a spectator. It is almost like watching a Friday the 13th movie. Seriously. It's that good. I remember catching and killing this guy directly in front of the headlights of a car they were trying to use to escape, and watched all the detail of the horror on his face as I squeezed his head to a pulp.


If you are chosen to play as a counselor, your main goal is to leave the area alive. You can achieve this by working to collect items that will help you do this. Car battery, fuel for a boat, car keys, call and wait for the cops to arrive, or wait for the 20 minute match timer to run out. Also, when you die (which I am sure will eventually happen), you have a slight chance of coming back as Tommy Jarvis, the Jason killer. Potential spoiler here... there is even a way to kill Jason if you have the right team working together to do so. I am not going to reveal how to do this, but if you Google it, you can find the method.

I give this game a 7.5/10 until they address the server issues and add single player. Then, if all works well, I would say 10/10 for sure.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go and make some fearful counselors scream and die!

Here is the awesome game trailer for you to watch:
