The robots'Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents enter for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see. 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

    Boring, boring, boring. I just found this boring. It looks nice enough, and isn't fundamentally broken, but if your not getting your assBoring, boring, boring. I just found this boring. It looks nice enough, and isn't fundamentally broken, but if your not getting your ass kicked, this game is boring. If you're into Resident Evil or Silent Hill, this is possibly for you. BUT BE WARNED: if you play this you're either A) getting knocked around like a pinball on speed, B) getting bored, or C) both. Expand

    By far the worst FNAF game and probably the cheapest too

    Gameplay-The gameplay is Ok but it isn't worth the £2 you pay for it, It is more
    By far the worst FNAF game and probably the cheapest too

    Gameplay-The gameplay is Ok but it isn't worth the £2 you pay for it, It is more the gameplay of a flash game as it is easy and doesn't support it self well however it is easy to master flicking on the camera and turning the lights on and off it isn't the gameplay that's so cheesy about this game

    Graphics-The graphics are as i said before that of a unity flash game their not terrible but their not amazing either The graphics are highly pixelated in most parts however the animatronic design is fairly creative and well drawn

    Scare factor- The game isn't scary. You may say that's my opinion well it is, But Five Night's At Freddy's relies on the cheapest factor in all horror games, JUMPSCARES! And the only jumpscare that could possibly scare you (unless your a 6-year-old hardcore gamer) Is Bonnie's the only one that has a hint of scare. The 2nd and 3rd games improve on the scare factor of the atmosphere but still the jumpscares don't get much better

    Characters- There is 0 character in this game. The only real character who has any story that hasn't just been made up by fans is Phone guy (also known as Jeremy) On Night 4 dies (or that's what we believe anyway) This has spawned theories hundreds of them in fact this is basically the only character development we get a night-guard dying that's just pathetic.

    Story- The story isn't too bad but it focuses on secrets rather than straight up explanation however this does make the player want to look further

    Overall rating- I give at a 5 out of 10 because it is defiantly the worst Fnaf game and deserves no better

    Conclusion- It isn't an insanely bad game but it needs improvement to be classed as a good game after all it started a beloved series so it deserves a 5/10
