    Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed.

    Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey.

    The Survivors' goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer - something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.

    There are – and have been – asymmetric multiplayer games released over the years, with fairly middling results. Dead by Daylight has improved the niche by creating a product that balances simple gameplay with minimal downtime, and giving players plenty of depth to come back to again and again. It is – by far – the superior asymmetric multiplayer game to date.

    Dead by Daylight is a mix between an action and a horror survival game in which you will either be an innocent survivor or a cruel murderer where bloodbaths and the essence of slasher genre films will be the protagonists. Ready to suffer for your life?

    Dead by Daylight pays tribute to horror movies from the 80s. The asymmetric gameplay is just as fun no matter if we're playing the killer or trying to escape him.

    Dead by Daylight "dies" a little in this console version which features several translation problems and works as a poor PC port of the original game. Enjoyable if you play with your friends, but that's all.

    Dead by Daylight is a lot of fun once you get into a match, especially with friends. The tension of struggling to complete objectives while avoiding an invincible killer can't be understated. But the downright unfair difficulty for survivors can be discouraging, especially since you have to play a very long time to unlock useful perks to make things easier.

    The game is far from unplayable, but the persistent problems make it impossible to recommend for people who plan to play alone.

    This just feels like an all around sloppy port that was quickly pushed out to try to score some cash off of Friday the 13th's bungled release. The console version doesn't even include all the download content released for PC, including the Halloween DLC with Michael Myers. The mouse-like controls in the menus, coupled with the fact that most all the actions are mapped to the triggers and shoulder buttons, makes it feel like whoever ported this doesn't play consoles to begin with (thankfully you can remap the controls).

Достаточно интуитивная система прокачки, множество навыков, одежды и предметов. Достаточно часто разработчики дарят на все новый и новый контент, начиная от косметики (одежды), и заканчивая DLC с новым выжившим и маньяком. Игра заслуживает вашего внимания! Expand

If they can escape they stay around the exit for you to come and then leave. But if you stay by the hooked player they will send you a message for camper. So I stay by the hooked player untill I see it is killed. Pretty sad if you have to play like this. That is why I don't play this verry often anymore. Could have been a good game if the idiot baby's don't play anymore Expand

    This might actually be a good game if their servers weren't garbage. The frequency of dropped games and glitches is unprecedented. Fix your issues!

This wouldn't be such an issue ifA game with so many great ideas but fails to execute any of them properly. The killer is simply overpowered. This wouldn't be such an issue if the killer didn't have the amazing ability of being able to stand around a hooked survivor with no resistance, making rescuing a near impossible task. The stupid skill checks on the generators are far too random and unforgiving, as they not only remove progress from repairing, they also straight up give your position away completely. There is also a huge issue with how perks are handled. From what I have played, many of the survivor perks were totally useless. The descriptions often come off as gibberish that doesn't help you in your hopeless task. Now, I never played as the killer, I will say that. The main reason is because I have heard playing as the killer can sometimes be a nightmare because of performance problems. Oh yeah, there are plenty of those too. Clearly, this console port was rushed out the door as quick as possible because of Friday the 13th making its main appearance. The result creates a game that loves to stutter and lag, and this makes doing almost anything a chore, especially running away form a killer that is faster than you and can knock you down in just two swipes. The performance issues are made even more perplexing when considering that the game doesn't look spectacular. It is on Unreal 4, but it definitely is not one of the best looking games I have seen on the engine, yet, it stutters like no tomorrow.

    I wanted to love this game, but because of the horrendous balance problems and the terrible performance, this game deserves a garbage score for the garbage effort.
