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.
Charming at first but ultimately the victim of lofty ambition, Hello Neighbor is a game that simply can't capitalize off of its interesting premise. Quality-wise, it should have stayed in Early Access for longer until its vision was properly nailed down.
