Basically, extreme hind and seek. I love this game. People will complain about some killers being too OP or trolling survivors being trolls. That all adds to the fun for me. No games ever really the same because you don't know how each other player play, which is bloody important! It's a challenge as both killer and survivor and it kind of feels like two games for one, which is nice.
While I generally love this game, I have a few warnings to those who are interested in buying it. The community can be toxic as hell. There's three basic types of toxicity. New players who are uninformed (not your fault) who do things the community considers bad manners. Experienced perfectionists. People who enjoy other's suffering. Higher learning curve than some expect. Learning survivor and killer perks is important regardless of what you main. Common tactics to avoid getting downed or looped. Prioritization/situational awareness. Where is everyone, what are they doing, what should you be doing?. Community slang. Matchmaking leaves a lot to be desired. Inexperienced paired with experienced... but in a "one gets dunked on" arrangement, not teaching. Sometimes (often) seems to be under the influence when making lobbies. wait.... ...... .............. .......................................... ....... times............................. ....... ............. ........ .... ..... HOWEVER, there's some pretty nifty things.... DLC characters can be unlocked through gameplay. It takes 9000 iridescent shards, which are gained through leveling one's account up. The Shrine of Secrets changes every week, and potentially has perks from DLC characters available. Folks who can't afford DLC can still get the characters & perks. Friends not required but make experience better. No in-game voice chat for survivors, some use Discord instead. In-game emotes used to communicate, as well as crouching. Relatively easy to find new friends if you're nice, most people who play survivor want full SWF crews. Replayable Wide variety of maps, characters, perks. Opportunity for a wide variety of play styles. Private or public matches for whatever your purpose, including goofing off. Lots of shenanigans Get waterboarded by puke Throw a flashlight rave Thiccness knows no morals or gender Overall, I'd recommend. Probably about a 8.5/10. Have not pooped my pants due to this game but have come close a time or two. Thanks, Ghost Face.
very difficult to determine if youre having fun or not.
Probably about half of my play time is dedicated to queuing for a match
I'm a Grandma whose son is a streamer on here. After watching him and his friends and community for the last few months I decided to try the game. It's actually pretty fun! I've just played 5 games so far, so I have a lot to learn but I'm hanging in there. haha.
honestly only play this if you can control your anger
wholesome killers cured my depression
