In a game as hyped as Hello Neighbor, I really expected to be able to climb a ladder, jump through a window, or stack a box without spending a significant amount of time. The control scheme is wacky and the environment simply doesn’t feel good. In the end, even the main premise of the game is stymied by poorly executed puzzles. Some are nonsensical, and some are nearly impossible to solve on purpose.
I want to like Hello Neighbor, I really do. I love the idea of a Rear Window type video game, constantly pressured by an antagonist that could upend everything I’d done in an instant. This game is not what I had envisioned, instead giving me wonky tech and an adversary who’s about as frightening as Barney the Dinosaur when all is said and done. I’m hoping that updates to the game might flesh some of these issues out, but right now the Rear Window is where I want this game to stay.
Hello Neighbor is a confused game that doesn’t do much to entice those that are new to the experience. There’s a lack of structure in both the story and the gameplay. This alone makes much of the pace rely heavily on trial and error, and although there’s a wide variety of different puzzles to work out, the delivery of each of them can be mind boggling if you miss out on a single detail. Bugs that has the floor swallowing you in certain places most definitely hurts the fun-factor and when you group this with excessive loading times and texture issues.
