    The excellently revised camera system and eerie villain makes Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 one of the better scare-fests out there.

    I couldn’t ask for a more terrifying game. I wouldn’t call FNAF 3 fun. In fact, it’s pretty much the opposite of fun. It’s tense and stressful and sometimes makes you want to cry when it’s not wrecking you with just the right amount of gore to put horrible thoughts in your head. But that’s the point.

    New mechanics, new elements, new environment and even new animatronics. Five Nights at Freddy's comes back with a third part that tries to keep the whole thing fresh and new. Chasing by just one animatronic, the rest of gang will appear in visions and try to kill us from a heart attack in a chain of scary moments. Right now, Freddy's 3 gives back to the community what they ask for: Scary moments, a good history, and a bunch of material for the community that tries to preserve the game.

    Scott Cawthorn returns with Five Nights At Freddy's 3, and while the horror continues once more, it doesn't last very long.

    People who have followed the Fazbear saga up to this point will likely want to close out the story, and they'll find enough to enjoy about Five Nights 3 to make it worth their time. New players curious about all the hype and considering a visit to Fazbear's Fright would be ill-advised to choose this as their jumping-on point to the series.

    A few new features should be sufficient for the devotees of the series, but insufficient for what should be a true sequel.

    It’s extremely good at scare jumps but the point is that scare jumps are an awfully primitive tool. [07/2015, p.54]

Entire new mechanics are introduced (Such as vent sealing, ventilation systems, audio systems, and having to reboot all of your systems including cameras.)
    For starters you're only chased down by one real animatronic, he makes up for this by being FAR harder to see in the cameras and being much more aggressive overall. For the most part gameplay doesn't consist of figuring out what to do when they are about to kill you, it consists of you slowing down his progress, which requires you to actively watch the cameras, unlike the previous two installments.

    The story is as great as always. This game introduces multiple endings (although you will have to jump through a LOT of hoops in order to get to it.) Initially you won't find much difference between the good ending and the bad ending, my advice is search for a bigger meaning behind them ;).
    Overall I found it to be a very great and very fun experiencee.

    Springtrap has a cool design.

    COOL, NOT scary. The gameplay loop isn't nearly as fun as the others. Too reliant on RNG. Takes the strategy

    COOL, NOT scary. The gameplay loop isn't nearly as fun as the others. Too reliant on RNG. Takes the strategy from the first two games and replaces it with luck. Ew.

    It's only a 7 and not a 6 purely due to nostalgia, I'm going to be honest.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As much as it pains me to give it a score like this. I didn't like the game.
    Okay, for a A FNAF fanbase will freak over this, but let me talk.
    It does it's job too well. Like Yahtzee (Zero Punctuation) said, the tension is too much for me.
    And i will always freak like a little girl when I get jumpscared.
    Although the atmosphere is real good. It's that the amount of tension you get in watching the security cameras and rebooting the systems is enough to make me ignore everything else. Story, phone calls by Phone guy etc.
    But again, it's still a good game.
    Now that's just summarizing.
    -
    Now let's begin with the actual review.
    The game drastically changed it's mechanics by adding the reboot system and one animatronic and the phantom ones, which I usually **** out when one of them gets close to me.
    The atmosphere and story is unbelievably good, Scott Cawthon nailed it here.
    The visual style and animations are also pretty good, but hey, this guy is an indie developer, not a AAA company. So don't expect top of the line animations and graphics.
    The graphics are clean and simplistic, which I like but it's held back by an ugly 4:3 aspect ratio.

    But there is the bad stuff.
    The game, has too much tension for me. Probably I'm a scaredy-cat but whatever.
    If the jumpscares are played right, I would be jumping on my seat and then getting a stick to try and murder my PC. But it's just plain repetitive, which I came to realize with the FNAF games.
    This game is basically an endurance test, to see how long you will last until you just **** your pants and quit the game.
    Now onto the story:
    You are a new employee at the new Fazbear horror attraction! Your job is to keep the animatronics from murdering you.
    There are many minigames that help improve the story and there is the "endings" I put quotation marks there because the endings are complete crap! How am I supposed to figure out that you're supposed to fly away while being Balloon Boy and then giving a dead child cake! Basically a horribly implemented moral choice system but you have to find the choices. Although the Chica choice was fairly easy to do.
    The endings. There are three endings, all being portrayed by three very same-ish picture. The bad ending gives you the animatronic heads but with lights on them. Meaning that the dead children aren't laid to rest. Watch the Game Theorists on that. The Neutral ending, I don't really know about this one. And the good ending, where the children finally rest. All these endings didn't really make an impact one me. No emotions. In fact, this is the weakest part of the game.
    -
    Now onto my conclusion.
    Five nights at Freddy's 3 is a fantastic sequel to the FNaF series if you're used to the mechanics and tension. But for me, it's too much to bear.
    The story is extremely well made except for that really unsatisfying end.
    The atmosphere is extremely well made and gives you that creepy vibe like when you're in a nightmare.
    Finally, the graphics, they are clean and simplistic but are held back by that ugly 4:3 aspect ratio, and the animations are vastly improved from the first FNaF game that looked worthy of a 90s CD-ROM game.
    That is all, hope you like the review.
