Vaguely reminiscent of a film about a Chucky doll …
What are the components of a good horror you know? It’s all about blood, or maybe in mind games, letting your imagination do the work for the game? When you want something a little less challenging for the brain, there is always a good old-fashioned fear of the screamer that Steel Wool Studios uses for great effect in Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted.
The Five Nights at Freddy’sS series is a fairly iconic horror franchise for PC, the first of which was released back in 2014. The concept was simple, but with an exciting gameplay with a lot of tense atmosphere and some pretty creepy creatures. It all comes back in one virtual reality experience (VR), but there is only one big difference – immersion in the game becomes even stronger.
VR has the ability to make even a weak startle – the terrible of nightmares. Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted uses this for great effect in all mini-games, no matter how long they last. There is a decent selection of available mini-games, ranging from a few minutes to ten. But in the dark they can last forever.
As mentioned earlier, Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted is replete with screamers caused by deadly animatronics who look like massive rabbits and teddy bears. However, they are not cute and not pleasant, sometimes they look out of the dark with their cold lifeless eyes and are ready to pounce on the gamer at any moment.
Gameplay is a basic choice of pressing buttons or pressing a lever at a specific time. The nuance of the gameplay is to keep track of everything else. The original The Five Nights at Freddy’S, for example, set tasks for a player with survival until 6 am and placed him in the role of a security guard, having the ability to scroll through security monitors to check the building. On either side of you are two doors and a pair of switches. They use force, which there is only a limited amount. Thus, it is necessary to find the perfect balance between these factors in order to stay alive and survive the night, exacerbating the stress, unlike the few VR horror games available.
Another striking example was the ventilation system. It is represented by three air vents, front / left / right, you need to fix the air conditioner … in the dark. Fortunately, you have a flashlight for lighting. It will also help you determine what is crawling through the ventilation ducts – some kind of super creepy robot that just repeats the plot from classic films such as Alien.
You have no answer to everything that happens, you can not shoot or run. This means that in addition to all the screamers, players should just be comfortable playing the game. Therefore, Steam notes that you can play it standing or sitting, although the menu did not have an option to adjust the height for those who need / prefer the option of sitting.
Five Nights at Freddy’s S VR: Help Wanted has tremendous visual potential and will certainly provide its recommendation with several funny YouTube videos of people trying to play the game for the first time. The only thing with a constant barrage of screamers, they gradually cease to frighten the viewer. The perception of the gameplay is very dependent on the player’s temperament, but he can get bored very quickly due to the state of waiting for the screamer. The tense atmosphere will still accompany you in the whole story, just the ending can become a bit dumb if you play too much. Five Nights at Freddy’s S VR: Help Wanted will definitely suit fans of the series or those who like to be scared.
Verdict: 8 screamers out of 10
