    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).

    The servers issues have improved greatly since the dedicated servers were implemented.
    Gameplay is barely stale because of the number of variations, games can differ my map(and the randomly generated placement of things on said map), Perks used by survivors and killers, The chosen killer, Survivor items & killer add-ons to their abilites.

    Every killer needs to be played differently, and played differently against, some are stronger than others. Their powers feel very different to use, some are faster than others, some are taller than others, Some have unique theme songs, they each have their own 3 unique perks.

    As a survivor teamwork is your objective(& repairing generators), Some perks will help you and some will help your teammates. Sometimes for teammates you'll get incompetent potatoes, other times you'll get a master. Your team can varey from bold to stupid

    Overall it's very enjoyable and provides a different experience each match

EvenIt can be laggy at times, mostly due to it not being dedicated servers. However it doesn't stop me from having a blast playing this game. Even though its the same objective every game for both survivor and killer, there are so many perks that you have endless options of playing differently every game. Its been out 2 years (I played on PC as well) and I still play it to this day. Expand
