5 out of 5

PROS

  • Watching the robots move between cameras is genuinely creepy
  • Sound design ratchets up the terror

CONS

  • Recognising the creatures patterns can diffuse the tension

VERDICT

Smart, unusual, and scary as hell, Five Nights at Freddy's will have you jumping out of your skin - even as you try to cling to it.

Five Nights at Freddy's is a weird game. 

Cast as a night watchman, your job is to man the security desk at a children's restaurant. During the day, kids come to eat and be entertainent by the eatery's collection of animatronic animals, who laugh and dance and play with the squealing brats until closing time.

At night, however, these souless automatons stalk the corridors of the building, looking for humans to stuff into bear suits. 

It's your job to keep the building safe - and yourself alive - between the hours of 12am and 6am. And, as Pocket Gamer's Alysia Judge discovered, trying not to be murdered by robot bears is an intense and terrifying experience.

Watch the video above to hear the full review.

This looks brilliant - having to memorise the enemies patterns to be able to avoid them reminds me a bit of Gregory Horror Show on the PS2.
