Hello Neighbor 2

There's something unbelievable eerie about the upcoming Hello Neighbor 2. Perhaps that it pairs upbeat graphics with a mystery surrounding a character that looks like your creepy uncle. Frustratingly, the original game wasn't up to scratch despite its hype. Whatever gets the hairs on your arms rising, it's not going to deter us from playing the sequel!

Hello Neighbor 2 doesn't have a planned release date. However, we have been treated to the alpha version of the game. We can safely say that it's bringing much more of that thrilling experience that its predecessor gave us - with a few added bells and whistles. So what's going to get you on the edge of your seat in Hello Neighbor 2?

Howdy, Neighbor!

So what was fascinating about the first offering? It brought a shared feat of suburban life into a video game form. We've all got that mysterious next-door 'friend' that does a few odd things. And we sit there and wonder whether he's got something to hide from the rest of us. That premise much translates into Hello Neighbor 2. However, this time, it's a whole new narrative.

You'll play as an investigative journalist looking to unveil the secrets that nobody in the area would dare look into. Players face off with their Neighbor, who tries to protect the reason why he's heading off to an amusement park every night. Recovering this information requires getting around each level undetected, but it's by no means easy.

Hello Neighbor 2 adds an AI neural network that learns from player interactions. Avoiding the Neighbor becomes increasingly difficult considering that no route or action they take is the same. While that makes the game challenging, it can be rather irritating as well. Sometimes, there's no strategic way to plan out your course of action as everything can change.

Having said that, we'll say that Hello Neighbor 2 is a vast improvement over the predecessor. It fixes bugs, lags and provides a more extensive world to work with. Though unfinished, the narrative feels stronger as well. It's more immersive and does help players feel more engaged with their actions. So far, a decent stealth horror game.

Just Your Friendly Neighborhood Secrets

Hello Neighbor 2 reminds players of Outlast in the sense that the theme and gameplay are similar. However, the visual aesthetics are vastly different, procuring more of a cheery vibe than a horror atmosphere. That's what's unique and enjoyable about the game thus far, but it still has a ways to go to make up for the first mess.


The alpha offers some entertaining moments, decent gameplay, and impressive AI. However, that does lead to frustration as you continue. Much of Hello Neighbor 2 you feel is a crapshoot. That shouldn't deter players from trying, though. It's still in alpha, and more feedback from users can help shape a much more intriguing stealth horror game.

Round-Up - Pros & Cons


  • Unique visual aesthetic
  • The neural AI of the town is impressive
  • Thrilling moments of the gameplay


  • No way to plan your approach
  • Still needs trivial gameplay improvement
  • The narrative is a bit straightforward

Game Reviews

There's quite a heavy burden on Hello Neighbor 2, but not of expectations; more that there's pressure to succeed. The original game didn't live up to the hype. It tended to creep us out incorrectly and could have done more to deliver the thrilling action-adventure experience we were all expecting. But this indie developer isn't giving up on the franchise and wants to prove its worth.

Surprisingly, Hello Neighbor 2 follows up on the original, where most developers would have abandoned the series after less than fair criticism. That makes it all the more interesting to play to see how they'll make amends and if the game finally will live up to its vision and fan expectations. Let's return to the creepy town of Raven Brooks and unravel the mystery behind our weird neighbor.

Howdy Neighbor, Redux

Hello Neighbor 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the popular stealth horror game, successfully builds upon the foundation laid by its predecessor, delivering an immersive and suspenseful experience. With improved gameplay mechanics, a larger open world to explore, and a deeper narrative, Hello Neighbor 2 takes players on a thrilling and mysterious journey that keeps them engaged from start to finish.

The gameplay mechanics have been refined and expanded, offering a more polished experience. Players must navigate various obstacles, puzzles, and stealth-based challenges to uncover the neighbor's secrets. The Neighbor AI has also been improved, displaying more realistic and unpredictable behavior. This adds a layer of challenge and suspense, as players must constantly adapt and strategize to outsmart their relentless pursuer.

The game's visuals are impressive, with improved graphics and attention to detail. The character models, animations, and environmental effects are all well-crafted, adding to the overall sense of realism and immersion. However, some players may find occasional frame rate drops or minor graphical glitches, which can momentarily detract from the experience.

While Hello Neighbor 2 offers a thrilling and engaging gameplay experience, it has shortcomings. The difficulty curve can be pretty steep sometimes, especially during certain puzzles, which might frustrate some players. The game's open-world nature and lack of clear objectives occasionally lead to confusion and aimless wandering. However, for those who enjoy exploring and piecing together a complex narrative, these aspects might be seen as opportunities for personal discovery and satisfaction.

A Neighbor's Redemption

In conclusion, Hello Neighbor 2 successfully builds upon the original game's foundation but provides an even more captivating and immersive experience. With its improved gameplay mechanics, expanded world, and deeper narrative, the game keeps players on edge, eager to uncover the neighbor's secrets. It's got the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard vibes of a creepy family, though a bit more comical.


Despite minor flaws, Hello Neighbor 2 is a worthy sequel that delivers suspense, mystery, and a thrilling adventure that will leave players wanting more. Players, rejoice! This is the Hello Neighbor experience that should have been!
