The use of advanced AI is what really makes this game stand out to me. In most cases, it seems this game would have been created and the AI would have been rather dumb. Making beating the levels all that much easier and causing the game to have little to zero replay ability and allow the person to beat the game in a short amount of time. That to me is the defining characteristic of this game. If you enjoy challenging yourself, and with the AI it quite literally could end up you actually challenging yourself, then this game is for you. There isn't the shooting or the great deep narrative just you and the neighbor trying to outwit one another. This game will definitely be one that I continue to play and to replay once beaten to see how fast I can get at each level and how long it takes before the AI really catches on to me.
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.
While it does take a fair amount of patience, Hello Neighbor has all the tension and atmosphere you want from a game primarily geared towards stealth.
While the controls are still iffy, this stealth survival game has seen the world and puzzles polished to a very satisfying shine!
Hello Neighbor is not a game that should be taken lightly, but it is one that will polarize the fans.
Hello Neighbor is a rather interesting puzzle game with stealth and ‘horror’ mechanics present. This is another game where I’m on the fence when it comes to recommending it. It looks okay but still feels like an Early Access title with its controls and overall presentation. However, I did get enjoyment out of figuring out what I needed to do and pissing off the neighbour by throwing things at his face over, and over again. I think the game may be a bit mild for hardcore fans of the survival horror genre, but also a bit too reliant on stealth and running away for the casual gamer.
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.
Hello Neighbor is an interesting release that is a bit too vague for its own good. It relies on some wonky physics for several of its puzzles, some of which are a bit “out there” about their solutions. It's a game that you're either going to love or hate as you try to complete its 8 to 10 hours long campaign.
Puzzles and stealth are the main attractions of this peculiar videogame by the russian Dynamic Pixels. A title fill with good intentions but full of bad results

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.
