    Hello Neighbor is not a game that should be taken lightly, but it is one that will polarize the fans. I’m on the side that enjoyed it, even though at the start it was nothing near enjoyable. You will fancy it too if you can accept that it means well and forgive the game’s flaws.

    Hello Neighbor is a confused game that doesn’t do much to entice those that are new to the experience. There’s a lack of structure in both the story and the gameplay. This alone makes much of the pace rely heavily on trial and error, and although there’s a wide variety of different puzzles to work out, the delivery of each of them can be mind boggling if you miss out on a single detail.

    Puzzles and stealth are the main attractions of this peculiar videogame by the Prussian Dynamic Pixels. A title full of good intentions but riddled with bad results.

    In its current form, I simply cannot recommend Hello Neighbor to anyone until all of the problems are fixed. Again, I am shocked and disappointed that publisher tinyBuild would charge $30 for a product that clearly needs a lot more work. It really sucks because this game has a few things that work well, like its unique mechanics, a great art style, and good, measured horror. There’s a glimmer of something neat but right now, it's best to treat this as Hello Neighbor Game Preview Edition.

    There was a lot of hype behind Hello Neighbor, and I've even started seeing merch at stores to purchase, but at this point in time it hasn’t lived up to it yet, not even close. The ideas are there, as is the premise and backdrop, but the execution is severely lacking in the worst possible way. Sure, some fixes might make it a better experience, but there’s no way this should be a full release in its current state. With all this in mind, I say Goodbye Neighbor.

    A mish-mash of concepts and half-cooked ideas that are never fully developed, wrapped up in a cutesy aesthetic that is at odds with its (at times) dark and disturbing themes. This is one to avoid.

    Hello Neighbor has been through several alpha builds on PC, yet on Xbox One we're going straight to a full release. However, in its current state with distinct lack of polish and muddled gameplay it feels more like a demo or a modders pet project than anything that should be sat on the Xbox One store. The skeptic in me also suspects that the obscure puzzle design was a deliberate choice to force some hype around the game, as players reach out to internet forums or hit YouTube to watch the many let's play videos doing the rounds for some answers. However, unless you are a streamer yourself or of an age where you can't play real horror games, I can't honestly recommend this to anyone.

    First of all let me say that I love the art style and I had high hopes from the trailers, never having played the Alpha versions. That beingFirst of all let me say that I love the art style and I had high hopes from the trailers, never having played the Alpha versions. That being said, this game is by no means finished. This is a Beta version disguised as a full game and for $30, it is a stretch. The initial release was already postponed once in August and I wish they had taken the time to actually finish it. In the almost 2 hours I've put into Hello Neighbor I have run into multiple bugs (launching across the map and dying notably). The neighbor wanders around aimlessly and will start stretching/glitching out in the front yard sometimes infinitely. It has also crashed on me over 3 times completely sucking me out of the experience. I wanted so badly to like this game, and that was before I spent $30 on it. Now I just to not play a broken game. It is a shame Xbox does not refund digital downloads, or I would return this and wait for it to be either on sale or fixed (*ahem* finished). Hopefully a patch will be released to fix some of the issues. In short, for the $30 price tag you are getting the idea of a cool game with little of the follow through. Buyer beware. Expand

Les graphismes mongolos à la nintendaube n'aident pas vraiment à faire passer la pillule non plus : on tient là l'un des jeux les plus laids du moment, voire de toute l'année 2017.

    Il paraît qu'il s'agit d'un jeu d'infiltration... ah vraiment ? on ne sait même pas ce qu'on est censé faire, à part qu'on se retrouve planté devant la maison d'un voisin moustachu paranoïaque et très vindicatif. Entrer dans la maison peut-être mais pourquoi faire ?... et ça rime à quoi en fait cette merde ?

    Le développeur indé ne doit pas le savoir lui-même... on dirait une ébauche de jeu, une sorte de démo d'un jeu (?!) en développement qui sortira euh... plus tard. Mais qu'on vous vend plein pot quand même, là tout de suite. Le prix indicatif conseillé est de 30 boules... tu le crois ça ?! ça doit être une mauvaise blague. De l'humour de collégien sans aucun doute.

    Et donc, bah le voisin, il te voit, il t'attrape et tu recommences devant la maison. Ouais... super. Et la poubelle, tu la vois, voisin ? elle t'appelle...
