When it was first released Five Nights at Freddy's 2 had a lot of eyes on it. The first game came out of nowhere and was an absolute monster (an animatronic monster that is!) of a hit. One of the most interesting aspects of this game is that it is actually a prequel to the first game and the way it ends up rolling into the first game is done really well.
Can You Survive!
The lore of Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is part of what I love about this game and series so much. Once again, you are working as the night security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Your job is to keep things safe…. And survive the night from the animatronics that wants to shove you into a suit which will kill you. What I really like here is that you can find little things that fill in the lore to the game. I really thought it was cool how the game ended which takes us to where the first game would start.
The More The Merrier
The gameplay is you being in the security office. You cannot move around, but you can move your head to look at things. This time around there is no security door just a long black hallway that is creepy as hell. You can use the cameras to keep an eye on the animatronics. You also have a flashlight as well.
The game always has you on edge. You can use this animatronic head that you can wear which will trick the animatronics into thinking you are one of them. You also have a music box that you need to use in order to keep one of the new enemies, this super creepy puppet at bay. I like the idea of this, but in all honesty, this is what I spent most of my time doing. Making sure the music box was always going as this puppet does not screw around.
While the wheel may not have been reinvented here in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, it is super tense and it will certainly make you jump out of your skin time and time again. If you survive 5 nights, you beat the game, but this leads to a harder 6th night and even a custom night where you can change various options.
One thing that I really like about the game is that when you get caught you can get the chance to take part in one of a few retro-style mini-games. These are a fun addition, but what I really liked about these was the way they would expand the lore of what is going on here.
I think that Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is a fun follow up. The way it expands the story is cool and the game once again will make you jump time and time again. It may not add a ton in terms of the gameplay, but if you liked the first game you will have a fun time with this one here.
