Hello Neighbor has some good ideas, a dark story which should have been developed further and a number of issues that make it a horrible time the further you progress.

Hello Neighbor tries to offer a unique stealth horror experience unlike any other, and in my opinion, does it well. There are issues such as the difficulty of the puzzles and the physics engine but overall a great game worth your time. I’d recommend it even if you’re not a fan of horror games.

Despite its bugs and storyline, Hello Neighbor is still a decent game. The puzzles are creative and a lot of fun to solve, the art style is good, and the Neighbor AI mechanic adds an additional layer to the gameplay.

A buggy, uninjoyable mess of a game, trying and failing to emulate better titles

In the end, even the main premise of the game is stymied by poorly executed puzzles.

As much as I looked forward to this title, I haven’t been this disappointed with a game in a very long time.

Hello Neighbor is not a game that should be taken lightly, but it is one that will polarize the fans.

Dynamic Pixels create in Hello Neighbor a unique experience in which the adaptive A.I. defies all expectations. Despite that, the final act is quite a miss-step when it comes to the puzzle elements. If you won't give Hello Neighbor a try for yourself then at least check out a stream of the game and enjoy it there.

Now that the game is out, I honestly have to say that I am a little bit underwhelmed. The concepts in the early access beta was not expanded upon. While it was refined to some extent, the game is still without its bugs and problems. The game showed so much promise but it released in practically the same state. Nothing significant was added, just more of the same. I probably would have had a different opinion if I jumped into this game after it was released but since I saw it grow, the new release holds very little for me.

I was so desperate for Hello Neighbor to end that I regularly sought out ways to try and bypass the intended game. There could be something buried deep down, but the general execution of this steal-horror blend holds it back drastically. Even the quaint colourful world is hampered by the general sluggish feel and poor controls.
