Hello Neighbor is the worst game I've reviewed all year. Skip it with prejudice.

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

A game of such insane, inane and asinine design, it's a wonder the game didn't blow raspberries when I started it up.

Dynamic Pixels seems to have begun with a simple, brilliant concept, but struggled to make a cohesive game out of it. The AI neighbour and skewed environment are both wonderfully executed pieces of game design, but every other aspect of the project is flawed, making for a fundamentally unenjoyable experience. In some languages, "hello" also means "goodbye", and the latter is more apt here; no matter what horrors lay within the basement, they are not worth persevering through the horror of playing this game.

Hello Neighbor is incompetent and barely playable as a horror, stealth, or adventure game, in addition to being incoherent as a narrative.

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

Frustrating in almost everything it tries to do, Hello Neighbor's interesting concept is completely wasted by its execution.

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.

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

An interesting premise, a striking visual style, and a mysterious game world that's bound to keep the gaming community pondering on what's going on in here, Hello Neighbor had the potential to be an iconic classic. Instead, the final release is nothing more than an overpriced, clunky, and incomplete mess of an experience. It's a shame, really.
