An ambitious and mysterious puzzler that's ultimately as frustrating as it is fascinating.

Read full review

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

Hello Neighbor is a frustrating slog through a gauntlet of illogical puzzles that rely on persistence and thoroughness far more than cleverness, observation, or ingenuity. The stealth is hit-or-miss, alternating between feeling too punishing and borderline irrelevant from act to act. Some clever level design and a clear talent for making me feel creeped out eased the frustration, but don't present enough of a reason for me to recommend anyone put themselves through 15-20 hours of this. I wish I'd just stayed on my own side of the fence.

On the surface Hello Neighbor seems promising, but beneath that veneer is a game that doesn't work half the time – and is dull when it does

Hello Neighbor seems inviting at the outset, but its clumsy, obtuse approach to stealth will have you searching for the exit.

A "family friendly" survival horror that's far from giving us goosebumps. It lacks polishment (glitches, bugs... that make de game uglier) and offers a broken control that's its our worst enemy, more than the neighbor. It looks like a twisted Pixar movie, but way more plain. It relies on a good idea, but executed in the worst possible way.

When simple tasks like reliably picking up and using or placing items are clunky, it's a good sign that the skeletons in the closet aren't worth discovering.

The game's concept is brilliant, but unfortunately Hello Neighbor's execution does not rise to the occasion and the game falls flat.
