    An amazing survival horror experience and my favourite indie game so far this year; you’ll sure as hell see this one on my list of top 5 games of 2016.

    Dead by Daylight is a good game, but it lacks of content. Hope to see more soon.

    The slasher genre fits great in a multiplayer game, and Dead by Deadlight is a proof of it. Jason Voorhees approves.

    Despite of lack of content in its launch, Dead by Daylight is an original adventure multiplayer game that it is worth and captures perfectly the style of classic movies of horror.

    The idea is great and it's really intense and fun when played with friends. However, it's not the most polished experience, so it might be worth waiting and seeing how it improves in the upcoming months.

    Dead By Daylight is a fantastic concept that, in practice, needed much more work put into it.

    Dead by Daylight executes the concept of a competitive horror game well, but only to a point.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is a potential if it will regularly update and fix bugs, as long as at the time of release, and the first update of the game is very crude and often play the multiplayer does not work. Optimization of all this horrible graphics Expand

    All in all it's a mixed bag of frustration made by the communities outcry for unnecessary changes and the Developer listening to it.
