I had a great time playing the first part of Five Nights at Freddy's. There are not a lot of games that are so simple but also so horrifying. In the new installment you are introduced to a new cast of mascots, that are even more terrifying than in the first Five Nights at Freddy's. The game features also a new Freddy Head that can protect you at times. Find out if the new Freddy's is even better than its predecessor.
Even though I've always been somewhat of a scaredy-cat, there has always been something in me that is drawn to a good horror game. My brother and I would gather around my Uncle when we were young and watch him play terrifying titles like Resident Evil or Silent Hill.
Through the years there have been some great horror games to hit the genre, but the one I find to be most unsettling, and even nerve-racking at times, is Five Nights at Freddy's. I enjoyed playing the first game, although I had to take frequent breaks to make sure I didn't wet myself from a jump scare. However, now that I have finished with the first story, it's time to move on and download Five Nights at Freddy's 2 and start my adventure again!
There's just something about an animatronic figure that is intensely creepy. The way they move, and sing, their dead, unblinking eyes; now imagine those same machines coming to life and trying to track you down in a dark, family-friendly restaurant after closing time.
In each installment of the game, the animatronic creatures at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza seem to get more and more terrifying. Along with the addition of extra terrifying features on the characters you already know and love, there are new members to Freddy's crew who are eager to scare the pants off of you!
If there's one thing that's given me the heebie-jeebies all my life it would be stuck in a dark area with no means of turning a light on. Something about not being able to see what is around me has always been a horrifying thought.
I found out rather quickly with the FNAF series that the majority of the time you are playing through a night, you will not have a flashlight or means to turn the power on. Because the battery life is limited on your only flashlight, you'll need to make smart decisions on when to use it and when to stay put in the dark.
The only power that will remain in the Freddy Fazbear's Pizza restaurant is keeping your security cameras active so that you can keep an eye on the murderous figures who are out to find you!
Sometimes the only option you have in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is to hide yourself out in the open. Though this might sound counterproductive, the characters will not be able to find you because they use face recognition software, and the boss has equipped you with a Freddy mask, just in case.
If you are not careful to watch the cameras, the figures just might show up in your office for a not-so-sweet surprise.
However, if you are quick enough to place the Freddy head over your face, then you are sure to fool them, at least for now.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is an extremely addicting game to play, as the developer has made sure to give you plenty of challenges to overcome. Many people think that the game can be too hard at times, but I would much rather have a lengthy game that challenges me than a game I will beat in just a few hours.
I would recommend Five Nights at Freddy's 2 for anyone who is already a fan of the genre, or for those who want to be able to play the game on the go rather than stay tethered to your PC or console. Overall, FNAF 2 is well worth the money to purchase the game and will surely keep any horror fan entertained.
