    Slender is a game that will make you scream like a little girl and make you piss your pants in fright also you might get very paranoid and think a man with no face is watching you. Expand

    Slender is a terrifying video game, although it doesn't contain much of impressive graphics or any top details, the atmosphere itself, so real, it will scare you. It is like Blair Witch but with a tall creepy, not to forget, FACELESS man is after you called Slender, when you collect the first page, a soundtrack starts increasingly bugging you, your adrenaline raises page by page, and when you collect all of them, you are one of the few lucky people, winners but stuck in nightmares and shock.

    One of those rare games that actually benefits through its own simplicity. Slender builds up the tension and delivers heart pounding, high-pitch screaming, oh-my-god-get-this-computer-away-from-me scares that are best enjoyed with a small group of friends, a pair of ear-buds, and a dark surrounding.

    i think it was a pretty scary game but not too scary so i can play without actually scared the **** out of me. The game is free and simply easy to understand. Perfect game to challenge ur friends! Expand

    It's arguable that whilst Slender is easily the most tense horror gaming experience in years, there's not much entertainment to be had from the game. A fun game to play with friends, though somewhat ruined by various, dissapointing "sequels" and spin offs that recycle the same ideas. Expand

    The day I learned about the Slenderman Mythos, I was interested. The day I learned the origins of that mythos, I was amused. The day I discovered the various video series and blogs that have been made with Slenderman in them, I was creeped out and scared by alot of the impressive work people had done. So when I learned about a Slenderman game, I was interested.

    As novel and interesting the concept is, it unfortunately, didn't quite meet my standards for what is an obvious horror game. Yes, Slenderman is there.. following you... waiting for you to let your guard down so he can get you. But the game just doesn't feel as... threatening as I think it should be. I mean, you've got the Slenderman, a guy that is arguably, nine to ten feet tall, with a twig like body, pale skin, no face, and supposedly strong enough to rip you to pieces with his bare hands, stalking you, yet it feels more like your playing a game of tag to me, then running from some kind of Elderitch terror that wants you for dinner as the main course.

    I do like the concept, it's very much like how many of the Slender stories out there go, but the game just feels like it's lacking something. What that something is, I'm not sure. All in all, it's worth at least looking at for anyone that hasn't played the game, since it's basically freeware. Not like you'd be wasting your money playing this game, and at the worse, you'd only waste five minutes that you probably would have spent doing something less meaningful then this anyway. =p

    Lots of people are talking about this game like it's "da best horror game evar!11".
    Here's what this game REALLY has to offer:
    -Bad
    graphics.
    -Boring gameplay.
    -Repetitive environment.
    -Bad mapping.
    -Cheesy Slenderman model.
    -Not scary at all.
    Go download and play Slender's Wood's. Much better game.
