I’m on Observation Duty 5 is a really weird game, but yet I found myself complexly captivated by it. Think of this like a horror I spy kind of game with nude dudes and you have a basic idea of what is going on here. I will put my hand up and say that I have not played or even heard of this series before this, but if they make a sixth game you better believe I am there to check it out.
Not The Best Job In The World
As I said before, I had not played the previous games so I am not sure if I’m on Observation Duty 5 follows on things or not. What I can tell you is that we have a job as a kind of camera security guy and it is our job to watch for anomalies and then report them. If you fail to notice so many anomalies then it is game over and you have to start over. The idea is to survive from midnight until 6 AM the next morning. It is a fun premise, but I do wish it offered a bit more story.
I Ain’t Afraid Of No Ghost!
You may be wondering just what are anomalies and they are when you see a chair move, an item appears or disappear stuff like that. You know basic ghost and haunting like stuff. However, in I’m on Observation Duty 5, there are also more severe things like ghosts, creatures, and naked men doing lewd stuff, yeah, you read that right. I am not sure what is exactly going on here, but it did make me jump on a few occasions so I give it some credit for that.
Calling Camera One!
The way that you catch the anomalies in I’m on Observation Duty 5 is by moving the camera and catching them in the act and then reporting it. The real challenge here is to remember what was and was not in a room and where things were. It can really start to mess with your mind as you think “was that there before?” and you start to question yourself all the time. The anomalies are random so you never know for sure where they are going to appear as you play the game, making each turn unique.
Surviving Until The Next Shift!
The presentation of I’m on Observation Duty 5 is a bit of a mixed bag. The game has a kind of creepy vibe to it and the areas you are observing have a grey monochrome look to them which is what I think kicks up the creepy vibe a few notches. It has a rather basic, almost PlayStation 2 quality about it, but it still manages to hit you with more than a few jump scares as you try and get through the night.
While I’m on Observation Duty 5 is not the greatest game I have ever played, I did find myself spending way more time with it than I thought I would. It actually makes me kind of want to see what the previous games are all about. It is kind of similar to something like Five Nights at Freddy’s so if you like games like that, I suggest you take a closer look at this one as it probably will be something you enjoy.
- I thought that the game had some good jump scares
- It is super weird when the dudes show up
- The game can mess with your mind and make you second guess yourself
- It does have a bit of a FNAF thing going on
- The presentation is rather basic and bare bones
- I am not sure it is the kind of game I would be in a rush to play again
