Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted is a good game at its core, but it suffers in the transition to Nintendo Switch.

If we sound like a broken record criticising this VR conversion, that's because its central problem is so all-encompassing that it destroys the product. Sure, you could have fun with this if you're a committed fan of Five Nights at Freddy's and its lore, but we'd advise against it otherwise. As with many VR games, the immersion and novelty factor papers over the cracks of the limited gameplay. When that escapism is taken away, all that's left is a sub-par minigame collection that isn't even as good as the individual games it cribs from – and it's a lot more expensive, too. We get the impression that the sole reason this game exists is to capitalise on the fact that the Switch has such a large market share.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted is a great collection of FNaF titles for the series veteran looking for Switch versions, or for those searching out the additional bonus content, but the issues that come with the VR conversion, as well as the fact that the base games as a whole can easily lead to boredom and frustration for those not fully invested in the timeline and lore mean this is a niche collection for a niche audience.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted's port to the Nintendo Switch has proven to be a difficult one. The slippery controls render the game difficult to play, but I don't consider this a hit against the franchise. FNAF will continue to be a fan favorite, and I'm sure more games are planned for the future.
