Despite these flaws Five Nights at Freddy's is a good game, If a game like Amnesia can be compared to a full English breakfast this makes five nights more like a bacon and egg sandwich, not as full filling but good while it lasts. It works well as a survival horror and for only £3.99 on steam I would recommend it to fans of the genre but not to the night watchman at Pizza Hut.

Fans taking a break from the Resident Evils, Silent Hills, and Dead Spaces of the world will find Five Nights at Freddy's refreshing in its simplicity, yet also challenging to survive unarmed through some eerie evenings.

A simple design that's devilishly clever at messing with you.

As flawed as its gameplay may be, this game will be talked about for years to come, and anyone who can stomach it should try it, if only to join in the discussion.

Simple premise with lots of jump scares. Five Nights at Freddy's may be a one-trick pony, but that trick is quite the treat.
