Secret Neighbor review

Secret Neighbor is an online spin-off of the popular Hello Neighbor quest from the same developers. The game was released on PC in 2019 and is distributed through Steam. It costs $19.99 and has a total of 5700 reviews, most of which being positive. The idea is that several players take the role of kids, sneaking into the Neighbor’s house. They have to act in a team, but one of the players is the undercover Neighbor.

Gameplay: Hello Neighbor with Role Play

This game is an interesting experiment of the developers, as it both brings back the gameplay of the original Hello Neighbor and adds a lot of new elements to make the experience fresh. The idea that one of the players is a secret enemy of the others is brilliant and adds a lot of role-playing to the process, as the party uses microphones to chat, and the Neighbor has to keep his role in secret. The only problem is that you cannot, unfortunately, select to be the Secret Neighbor, and you will have to wait until the game randomly chooses you for this role.

Graphics: Enhanced Neighbor

The graphics are impressive and, finally, make the game look like a horror. It is still not scary at all, but the original Hello Neighbor, with its bright colors, made the affiliation to this genre very questionable. Here, the atmosphere is tenser, the color palette is darker, and the thunder is rumbling outside most of the time. The quality of graphics has also improved, everything is more detailed and attractive in Secret Neighbor. The maps are also pretty diverse, and the game will draw your attention for a long time if you are fine with such a style of graphics. The optimization seems to be an issue, as many users report lags and low framerates, but we hope the developers will improve the performance.

Controls: Easy for Fans

If you have played Hello Neighbor, then you already know how to play Secret Neighbor, as the controls did not change a lot. You now have extra abilities, as each of the kids has a specific class, but it does not make the game harder to learn and play. Playing as the Neighbor might be a bit tricky at first, but you will get used to it pretty fast.

Good

We would recommend the game both to the fans of the original Hello Neighbor and the fans of similar games like Friday 13 or Dead by Daylight. It offers some fresh role-play experience but is still not scary as a realistic horror would be.
