Five Nights at Freddy's 2
Horror game that is simultaneously scary and cute
Five Nights at Freddy's became one of the top horror games of all time upon its release, and the developers are now back with a brand new game that picks up where the last one left off called Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
Like the original game, you play as a security guard working in a pizza restaurant called Freddy's late at night. The restaurant features animatronic animals that dance around during the day to the delight of guests but then come to life at night to terrify you. When a malfunction causes those characters to come to life, you'll need to use all the resources available to survive the night. While many of the treasured characters from the first game return, this one also comes with some new characters too.
The full game comes with seven terrifying levels, but the demo only lets you play one level. Each level takes place over the course of the night. As it gets later and as you get to later nights, the animatronic characters will come at you faster and with more strength. You spend each level in the control room with monitors showing you all areas of the restaurant. Every time one of those characters comes close to the door to your office, you'll grab a mask and a flashlight, run into the hallway, and scare them away.
While it might sound like a simple game, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is anything but simple. It's hard to keep an eye on each monitor, and you risk more characters jumping out of the shadows when you turn your back for even a single second. The faster you move, the better you will do in the game. If you're too slow, you'll experience one of the trademark jump scares of the franchise.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 includes a new feature that lets you customize one of the ten characters in the game. Not only can you change the way they look, but you can also change their ability to scare you. When you choose the highest level, it's almost impossible to survive the whole week. With creepy music and jump scares around every corner, it's not surprising that those who love Halloween and unsettling horror movies love Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
