    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.

    Despite the game's rough start, the game has vastly improved with new characters and updates. Matchmaking has been fixed, as have it's manyDespite the game's rough start, the game has vastly improved with new characters and updates. Matchmaking has been fixed, as have it's many bugs (With many, MANY, less bugs than Friday the 13th: The Game). With iconic characters such as Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, Leatherface, William "Bill" Overbeck, and soon to be Freddy Krueger, as well as original characters such as the Huntress, the Trapper, the Hillbilly, Meg Thomas, Dwight Fairfield, Jake Park, Claudette Morel and many more. I recommend this game to anyone who likes to get scared in a multiplayer experience. Expand

El mejor juego de asesino contra supervivientes. Expand

    Не очень хорошая реализация хорошего, проверенного временем сюжета. Маньяк и четыре жертвы, казалось бы что можно испортить или привнестиНе очень хорошая реализация хорошего, проверенного временем сюжета. Маньяк и четыре жертвы, казалось бы что можно испортить или привнести нового? Разработчики справились с реализацией не плохого геймплея, но не справились с движком игры из-за чего практически с каждым обновлением игра становится все более забаганой и не пригодной к комфортной игре, постоянные ошибки на стороне сервера и длительные поиски маньяков и сурвов в лобби. Все это формирует мнение не очень успешного проекта с хорошей идеей, но абсолютной халтурой со стороны разработчиков. Конечно главным и самым весомым плюсом для меня - это отсутствие аналогов и уникальные сотрудничества с крупными кинокомпаниями, что дает возможность им добавлять культовых маньяков из популярных фильмов 70-80х. На этом плюсы для меня заканчиваются. Переставать играть я конечно не собираюсь, т.к. писал ранее - аналогов нет! Мое мнение было сформировано за 755 часов. Expand

    Buggy as **** Runs like **** Very scarce graphics options and game lags all the time even though it isn't that pretty. You spend 90% time inBuggy as **** Runs like **** Very scarce graphics options and game lags all the time even though it isn't that pretty. You spend 90% time in lobby, because matchmaking is broken. You click "ready" and it goes into load screen, doesn't find a match and you have to click ready again. The new killer (nurse) is OP as hell. There are multiple bugs like you losing your items or perks even though you're not supposed to. This game should be early access. You do only one thing and it gets repetitive really quick. unless you're really into this sort of thing. Just avoid it until the fix it, which would probably be never, because this game is like hydra. They cut off one head in an update, and 2 more pop out (bugs). Awful. Expand

    I just signed up to Metacritic thanks to this game.

    Its so buggy, so unbalanced that is complete ****
    Cant recommended at all, its just a waste of money.

    The premise its awesome as so the ambience. But the matchmaking, the unbalance of the game and the bugs its just too much.
