    Friday The 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition for the Nintendo Switch is the online experience the platform has desperately needed. It’s engaging, it’s addicting, it’s everchanging and it is unlike anything else on the system. Overcoming the odds and escaping Jason is a thrilling chase that will get your adrenaline racing. You never know what is going to happen in Friday The 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition and that is what makes it so appealing. No two games are identical. It’s a killer game and, if given the chance, one that will slay your free time.

    With the recent discourse about violence in video games, the launch of Friday the 13th: The Game comes at an inopportune time. It certainly earns its mature rating, with a level of gore and violence that would make most people sick to their stomach, but for fans of the horror genre, this is their bread and butter. The experience of being Jason Vorhees is captured perfectly, and all of the feelings of panic and dread are still felt even after hours of playing. If you enjoy being scared out of your pants on a consistent basis, be prepared to scream.

    Friday the 13th: Ultimate Slasher Edition represents the culmination of the last two years of development for the iconic masked murderer and his dippy camp counselor victims. As a result, we find a well-balanced and fun asymmetric 7v1 slasher that we can take on the go. The only thing letting this ultimate edition down is the underpowered hardware of the Nintendo Switch. Come for the pure fan-service cat-and-mouse gameplay, but know that it’ll be better on every other platform.

    Friday the 13th nails the feeling of the franchise it is based on. It’s obviously meant to be played online, with intense matches and a survival horror touch.

    This is a feature-packed multiplayer survival horror game, but it’s also an unmistakably downgraded experience when comparing it other consoles.

    If the super long title doesn't stress it enough, Friday the 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition is the definitive version of the game.

    If you’re a die-hard fan of the franchise, you might get a few nostalgic kicks out of Friday the 13th: The Game. But if you’re simply looking for a horror-themed multiplayer, this doesn’t hold a candle to Dead by Daylight, which itself is coming to Switch next month. Do yourself a favour, and pick that up instead.

    Amazing game of cat and mouse, now portable, further quotation on graphics coming soon. I rated this a 10 to counter the ridiculously low user scores.

    This game is a lot of fun whatever system you're on. Yes it does have glitches and the learning curve learning curve can be tough in the beginning but after an hour or two you'll get the hang of it.

    It doesn't take long to find a game on Switch and I almost always get a lobby in less than 2 mins. Overall you'll have a lot of fun even with the glitches and some toxic members in the community. It's kinda fun to kill toxic councilor players when they're toxic

    Overall I'd but it again at $40.

    I don't generally bother with reviews but thought it was necessary to warn switch owners about this game . I'm also not sure if this onlyI don't generally bother with reviews but thought it was necessary to warn switch owners about this game . I'm also not sure if this only applies to European servers or whether others are having the same problems. So firstly , When you can get a game to play from start to finish ( Not very often at all ) its enjoyable to play, Yes the graphics wont win any awards and its a little clunky but it has a great tense atmosphere and feels pretty good if you get the parts and escape by car or boat . There is a fair amount of grinding which isn't so bad if you like that kind of thing . Along with a decent selection of maps atmospheric music etc means it has the potential to be really enjoyable . The bad and its really bad , Upwards of 5 - 10 mins mins to find / enter a match (This isnt because of a lack of people trying to play ) , constant disconnects when playing ( all your xp lost ) and glitches in game . I have in a 24 hours period with hours of trying to join games successfully finished around 20 games . This is the first game i where i have contacted nintendo for a refund as i'm not willing to risk £35.99 on a game that may work one day . pretty disgusting to release a game in this condition. Before anyone considers it may be my connection every other game i play on switch or PC is fine . The score of 3 would be 7 or 8 if the game wasn't broken. Expand

    This game is odd. It was a lot of fun when it first came out!
    And then it started to become worse over time. The glitches kept getting worse
    This game is odd. It was a lot of fun when it first came out!
    And then it started to become worse over time. The glitches kept getting worse with every patch, until the game got nearly impossible to play. Jason couldn't kill counselors, you'd glitch through the world, glitch on rooftops, randomly come back as Tommy while still alive. There was a huge amount of problems.
    The developers don't seem to care much about the problems of their game and seem to just want more money. This game could be so much better if the people who own it now sold it off to a better company.
