Although it means well, and has bags of character, My Night Job just doesn't have the depth to keep the player hooked and its gameplay becomes repetitive very quickly.
My Night Job is an entertaining homage to older video games and the horror genre, but its repetitive nature and lack of replay value hold it back.
The game is very addictive, and even after completing this My Night Job review I’ve continued to go back to play the game every now and then as I try to improve my ranking and unlock some trophies. The look and feel of the game might not be for everyone, but if you give it a chance I’m sure you won’t be dissapointed.
Overall I rate the game a 5, not because the game wasn’t fun which it is but because this is a game that is clearly more at home as a mobile title rather than a console title. As a console title, it feels lacking and weak. If it was a mobile game I’d score the game a solid 7.
While this isn’t a job I’d personally want to take on, I’m glad Reggie did, because if he didn’t, I wouldn’t get to watch him try and fail so often, because that’s really fun to do.
