Are you looking for a very interactive and fun game with a twist of horror? Then the new Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) Security Breach is just for you!
The eighth main installment of the FNAF horror game series was released on Dec. 16. The game was originally planned to release two years ago, but with real-life problems from the creator of the game, the game was delayed for two years.
While many FNAF fans are excited after the long hiatus, the hefty price of $40 makes players take a second look before buying.
So, is it worth it?
The short answer is yes. FNAF Security Breach offers enjoyment as [genre of FNAF Security Breach game], arguably even more than normal RPGs.
To illustrate, this game takes the normal theme of FNAF games, like staying alive in a controlled setting, to a survival theme, preventing animatronics from killing you with limited resources like battery life and electricity. Arguably, Security Breach combines many different mechanics to make an enjoyable game. Some examples include little security staff bots, puzzles and more, all while avoiding the animatronics.
In addition, the plot of the game is shown by a group of seemingly normal animatronics of whom are Freddy, Chika, Foxy, and Montgomery gator. Freddy is shown to have a breakdown, and later found out a kid that goes by the name Gregory inside of him, and is the only animatronic that is not hostile towards him. Instead, Freddy becomes the main “buddy” for the main player and assists him in many ways to try and get out of the pizzeria place.
In my opinion, the FNAF Security Breach is made exceptionally well. A horror game uses mechanics like the ability to sprint around, allowing free exploration wherever you want in the game with many secret items and rooms that you can unlock. On top of hidden lore, the game has 6 endings in total. The game also has many different possible play styles and choices the players can make. Each playthrough will at least take you a full week to complete due to the hard but very interesting mechanics and systems in the game. The game also encourages you to play through multiple times, as each time you will unlock and be able to play hidden minigames or make choices that you have missed.
While I was also hesitant to purchase the game, it was definitely fun and very entertaining, but also gave me nightmares afterward. The game gives off a very modern and futuristic theme, with many mysteries and choices that you can make and discover, each leading to a brand new experience. I played the game for 3 weeks, and I still haven’t unlocked every ending and storyline, showing how much content the game has.
If you are looking for a hard and challenging game, this might be the game for you. Even if you get scared really easily, I would still highly recommend getting the game.
