    The biggest frights of the ever-expanding series without quite the same unease and variety.

    FNaF4 differs from the previous games and that’s good. I had a bit more fun with it but it’s still based on jump scares and that’s the least refined technique of scaring. [10/2015, p.73]

    Considering you’ve likely played the previous three games and have now spent around eight hours keeping homicidal animatronics at bay, there’s nothing about this fourth game that begs for you to return. Instead spend the cash on a bag of snacks and some drinks, and watch someone else shriek loudly into a microphone for you.

    FNAF takes a step back, and relies on sound to scare you. It still works, but now your biggest fear would be going deaf because of its loud scare jumps.

    You'd be better served experiencing Five Nights at Freddy's 4 the way it was obviously intended to be enjoyed. By going on YouTube and watching some twenty-five-year-old, dressed like a fourteen-year-old, scream and cry his way through the game like a seven-year-old.

    A new low for the series, Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is a poor effort in almost every respect, an exercise in mediocrity better suited for YouTube than for an actual playthrough.

    I am generally accepting of other people's opinions; but if you don't think this game is a great horror game, your opinion is simply wrong.I am generally accepting of other people's opinions; but if you don't think this game is a great horror game, your opinion is simply wrong. Nothing else to it. You are wrong.

    This is THE scariest game ever created. There is simply nothing that can beat this. I was not a fan of the series until the release of this game, but this did it for me.

    This game is perfection. Play it at night with the lights off, headphones in. That's what I did. And I had never been so terrified in my life. The atmosphere, the sound design, the robot designs themselves, it's all sublime. Simply perfection. You're missing out if you haven't played this.

The atmosphere isI thought this game adhered well to its own lore, and revealed a piece of gaming history and mystery finally solved. The atmosphere is terrifying and the audio cue system is smart and fresh. Away with the camera system and giving us an entirely new type of scare. You've got to use your listening skills now.Though it may rely to heavily on the audio cues at times it, Scott shows us that he kept the best for last. Expand

Pros: Scott puts a twist on it like he did with #3. Now, you're a child being stalked from the dark corridors beyond the safety of your bedroom. The graphics are much better, the animatronics are looking better than ever and have well polished teeth! Also, now you can move! Cons: Reliance on mini games to understand the story, gameplay gets old eventually, and higher rounds are ridiculously difficult. Expand

    Shovelware deserves no review. But they're totally trying to make me **** on it by having to type more than 75 characters.
    It's just garbage.
