Review Summary:

Five Nights At Freddy’s lives up to its reputation. I was scared, and had shivers run through my body each time something was different on one of the monitors. If you like horror games, this is one to try.


I thoroughly enjoy a good horror game.  I’ve never been one of the guys who stands in line for the latest war title or those turn-based fantasy games.  They bore me to tears and leave me craving thrills and chills.  The graphics on games keep getting better, and the stories, while sometimes lacking, still offer depth.  But where are the jumps?  Where are the goose bumps?  Where is the sudden skip of the heartbeat?

Five Nights At Freddy’s promises more than great graphics and an okay story, it promises a chill up your spine, if you believe the hype.  I haven’t had a good scare from a game since F.E.A.R. dropped back in 2006.  With any luck, that will have changed by the end of this review.

First off, I’ll let you know what hardware I’m running this creepy game on:

  • AMD FX-4170 4.2Ghz Quad Core
  • 8GB Corsair DDR3 1600Mhz
  • EVGA GTX 750 TI, 2GB DDR5
  • 320GB Western Digital Caviar SATA HDD

I can tell you, the power of my rig is gross overkill for this game.  The minimum specs for the game are:

  • Processor: 2 GHz Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon or equivalent
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics: 1 GB
  • DirectX: Version 9.0
  • Hard Drive: 250 MB available space

The game starts with a freaky start screen featuring static-rolling footage of an animatronic bear’s face.  The gist of the game is that you are hired to monitor the security cameras during the night to make sure nothing happens to the restaurant, which is called Freddy’s.  It’s a lot like Chuck E. Cheese, which I assume is just as frigging creepy at night.  And after playing this game, I feel sorry for the people who have to work nights in a place like this.  I know a lot of them are teens who will probably play this game.
