    Friday the 13th on Nintendo. At least it has some decent stuff.

    Intro: Cool 8-bit opening with the knife going through the eye hole of the Hockey Mask. Graphics: Colorful 8-bit graphics and characters but needs one thing eyes and face. Environment is alright and i like how it sw... Read Full Review

    The OG Survival Horror Game

    Man, when I was a kid, this game was brutal. No one was spared from Jason's killing spree- not the camp counsolers nor the children they watched. I understand "Friday the 13th" has gotten a bad rap, but I have always t... Read Full Review

    This game isn't worth playing in my opinion.

    I did not enjoy Friday the 13th on the nes. It is another game on the nes that is based off of a film. When you first start it, it doesn't look like it would be too bad, but once you play it, you will probably find flaws... Read Full Review

    Friday The 13th- Not So Unlucky!

    This game freaked me out when I was two years old! Now, I'm 21, and I STILL play this game. "Friday The 13th" on the NES is a game that is either loved or hated. I, thankfully, love this game. I really don't care muc... Read Full Review

    Horror on the NES!

    Straight from the Friday the 13th movies comes the video game. Of course, it was the 80s and the NES was the latest thing, so you couldn't expect much in terms of gameplay. You start off roaming around the camp throwing... Read Full Review

    A classic movie to video game rendition.

    This game pits you against the tyrant of horror movie killers, Jason Voorhees. You play through the game exploring Camp Crystal Lake and the whole time trying to avoid Jason. The game wasn't a tremendous leap for its tim... Read Full Review

    The reason Jason was so pissed off in "Jason Lives".

    Friday The 13th for the NES captures very few things about the great, long running, horror movie slasher series by the same name. Sure the killer's name is Jason Voorhees, the unstoppable hockey masked murderer, who enjo... Read Full Review

    Repetitive, yet often startling.

    Graphics: I wouldn't say much about them. The trees and water and such are nicely done. However, the problem is nobody has a face except Jason and his mother's head. Makes you wonder who really is the creepy one. Soun... Read Full Review
