While the idea of running around as Jason Vorhees slicing up camp counsellors sounds like loads of fun, the bit where he teleports around - and occasionally through the centre of the earth - has been received less warmly.
That's the gist of the reception that has faced Friday the 13th: The Video Game (F13) on Steam, although the game has launched simultaneously on PS4 and Xbox One as well. Amongst PC users, the reception has been quite literally Mixed: the game has a 61% rating from over 3400 reviews at the time of writing.
While the game has a decent player base on Steam right now, with an average of 3000 concurrent players over the last month and peak concurrents of 13,630, it hasn't been a smooth launch. Bugs have been the biggest problem facing fans and detractors alike, with complaints ranging from Jason being able to grab players through walls, Jason's teleport occasionally bugging out, extended server downtime and player progress being reset or not properly tracked.
The biggest positive across Steam reviews so far has been the recreation of the atmosphere from the Friday the 13th movies. It's also gotten a big tick from people who have played F13 with groups; the counsellors have to work together to survive, especially given how efficient a killing machine Jason is.
But while the look and characterisation of Jason has gotten praise, his animations haven't. Users have drawn unfavourable comparisons to Andromeda's animations, with some saying it makes Jason, and the game by extension, look a little cartoonish. Users have also questioned Jason's arsenal of tools and his movement abilities, as well as the game's reliance on RNG with the counsellor spawning points and starting perks.
