The Completionist Edit
Jirard reviewed the game for the 141st episode of The Completionist. The review is done alongside MatPat of Game Theory, who previously joined him for the Five Nights at Freddy's 3 review, and singer NateWantsToBattle, who has made some songs related to the franchise.
The video starts with Jirard and MatPat relieved that they have finally completed Five Nights at Freddy’s 3. They then worry when they see NateWantsToBattle is on Steam and is playing Five Nights at Freddy’s 4. Jirard realizes that he will need more help in tackling this game, so he messages Nate over Steam.
Considering the change in story, Jirard considers this game the most emotionally driven.
Nate notes how the graphics feel less detailed than the previous game, but still finds the jumpscares to be the most visually threatening due to their appearance and way they seem to pick up the player. Jirard notes the importance of sound in gameplay mechanics, saying it’s done very effectively, but it makes the jumpscares that much worse when you fail.
Mat praises the change in gameplay mechanics from the other games. Jirard and Nate find the game the hardest in the series, but Nate appreciates the Atari cutscenes, and the Plushtrap minigame.
Jirard immediately panics when he realizes there is a 20/20/20/20 mode in the game. His rantings force Nate and Pat to detail the Completion Bonus section of the review. Jirard is left broken by the end of the review.
As a whole, the three find the game to be the scariest game in the franchise, and also probably the best. They do not recommend completing it by any means, as 20/20/20/20 mode gives the player nothing and is ridiculously difficult.
- Jirard claims to have seen his therapist concerning these games in this episode, and that he suffers PTSD because of the games.
- Nate had previously done a review of this game for Hot Pepper Gaming.
