Five Nights at Freddy's 4
Top Critic Average
The biggest frights of the ever-expanding series without quite the same unease and variety.
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. The game truly has come full circle.
Five Nights at Freddy's 4 answers our lingering questions about the franchise while providing a tense and frightening gameplay experience.
The short length and simple concept keep it from having much staying power, but it’s a thrilling experience if you’ve got a night to yourself and feel like giving yourself a good scare.
The low price point means it's not a massive gamble to buy into Five Nights at Freddy's 4, but 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.
If you're a fan of horror, this game offers everything you could want out of a truly terrifying experience and you'll enjoy every minute of it.
Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is a great ending to a great series. Let's hope that we see more from Scott Cawthon very soon.
