    Rather than try and make a quick buck out of cheap thrills, Dynamic Pixels and tinyBuild took the popular trope of hide-and-seek horror and twisted it into something new and creative. There is a great game buried here, as long as the development studio fixes the problems currently plaguing it... And if they can manage to really polish it, then the horror genre has much innovation to offer.

    The basic concept is solid, but due to its bad implementation, the game is almost a total write-off.

    It’s a shame the final version of Hello Neighbor isn’t what we wanted it to be. The great concept is poorly executed, with plenty of issues, ranging from the physics to the AI or the puzzle design.

    Unfortunately, only an amount of frustration and badly made game is hidden in the tempting package. For a good horror adventure, you must go elsewhere.

    Frustrating, buggy and overly dependent on trial-and-error, this is a missed opportunity.

    The concept for the game is great, level design is solid and the visuals are sometimes nice but the whole thing is painfully underdone. [02/2018, p.46]

    An exemplary “YouTube shocker” of a game. Avoid at all costs.

A game that, if done right, would be a fantastic experience. But, what Dynamic Pixels did to this game is not right. Poor implementation of features is the main cause for this. The art style idea they went with is fine. The A.I system in the game is insanely annoying since, especially in the early Acts because the house is SO small, the neighbor would just catch the player outright. I can't believe tinyBuild was the publisher of this game. Expand

    Unfortunately it just feels way too incomplete, not like a full experience, and overall kinda buggy, making it hard to justify replays too.

    Pathetic AI, pitiful length and lack of threat makes Hello Neighbor an unenjoyable experience at best and a travesty at worst. DespitePathetic AI, pitiful length and lack of threat makes Hello Neighbor an unenjoyable experience at best and a travesty at worst. Despite claiming to be a full game it feels less polished and complete than its earliest prototypes and the devs didn't seem to have a full grasp on what the wanted the game to be and it ends up a confusing mess with a enemy thats a less threatening neighbor than Ned Flanders Expand

    i'd rather stare at my ceiling than play this game, it's more enjoyable. A game that should have never been released.
