The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his couple offriends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds. The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman. From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you're allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night- no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn't right- namely if Freddybear or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed. Expand

    Five Nights at Freddy's is horror done right. No slasher techniques, no gore necessary.

    Entertaining, engaging and enveloping; once Five Nights at Freddy’s clasps its paws around you, it will be hard to let go.

    A simple design that's devilishly clever at messing with you.

    No nightmare can match the sheer terror of looking into the eyes of a plush monster that has come to tear you apart. A new kind of horror is in town. [Issue#245]

    Five Nights at Freddy's, even without both the third dimension and high production values in general, is really scary. It is a little horror game which will scare you with both its original idea and its implementation, proving there may be always a new approach in any genre.

    Nice concept but the sense of horror goes away really quickly. Action is presented in a repetitive way and the resource management doesn't work as well as it could have. Nonetheless the player will still have a few scares.

    Five Nights at Freddy’s presents an interesting concept to the player, and tries a different approach to the genre other than the usual asylum, graveyard and ghost town. Even the gameplay has something to say, but after the first minutes, once understood the mechanism, is hard to find a real interest in continuing playing.

    I've play a ton of horror games and most of the time, they resort to cheap jump-scares and having a bad atmosphere. But when I saw this game,I've play a ton of horror games and most of the time, they resort to cheap jump-scares and having a bad atmosphere. But when I saw this game, I was stunned. Unlike most horror games, you are fixed in a tiny office, looking through cameras to see where the animatronic robots are. What's makes this even more creepy is that the story takes place in a kids pizza parlor where animatronic robots are based on character's from the pizza parlor. This game will scare you and leave you scared for the rest of the night. In short. BUY THIS GAME! Expand

Five nights at Freddy's is a mediocre game with a few occasional scares. The idea is really good, but it's so limited. If you were able to walk around and had certain tasks you had to do (i.e: locking up the washrooms, turning off all light) while still have to avoid the animatronics, I think it would be an amazing game. Yet, it's a slow game with repetitive game play that gets boring after the first night. Its a good time waster, but definitely not scary. Expand

    Most of them are children! When I go on YouTube and I enter in the search box and insert the word fnaf filters I see: steal from normal fnaf arts community, fanfiction, to redraw
    2.Gameplay
    You guard who just stupidly sitting in one place, watching animatronics, and close the door! And it's all
    3.Graphics
    It has never been! It is simply render images! I will not be afraid of pictures
    4.Plot
    Would you say this is the story of the game Easter eggs? The guard worked for 5 nights and got the money this story? The man who killed the children and their souls go to costumes robots (Rave theory) is the story? Rave! It fafula
    ---------------
    I'm still in shock as normal people to appreciate the game as well-researched game!
    0/10 Worst indie horror game ever
