A remastered compilation of both the original Neighbours From Hell and its sequel, Neighbours From Hell 2: On Vacation, Neighbours Baông xã From Hell rearranges their levels (or episodes as they’re called here) into four bingeable seasons. You can tackle the episodes in each season in whatever order you like, and once you’ve made your way through all four seasons, a final episode opens up to lớn bring the game’s neighbour-pranking antics to lớn a cthảm bại.

Initially only four rooms will be available for you khổng lồ explore, và you’ll want lớn vì chưng so while Mr. Rottweiler is going about his daily routine.

But as you progress through the episodes more rooms of the house are brought into lớn play, & his routines become much more elaborate.

The gameplay itself is best described as point and cliông xã meets stealth.

Once you’ve obtained an cống phẩm, your next task is khổng lồ discover where lớn use it in order khổng lồ prank the unfortunate Mr. Rottweiler. Upon finding superglue, for example, you might apply it khổng lồ the binoculars he keeps using khổng lồ nosey across his street. Or you might deface the picture of his mum he proudly displays in his hallway with a permanent marker.

The second half of Neighbours Back From Hell is where things get a bit weird. Verging on stalker territory, Woody follows Mr. Rottweiler and his mum khổng lồ various locations on their holidays. With episodes then taking place in multiple locations such as Trung Quốc, Mexiteo, và even a boat, the action becomes a little less repetitive sầu but much more over-the-top. New gameplay elements are added too, such as reusable items and a minigame in which you need lớn try and keep an object within a circle for a phối amount of time as it fights lớn escape.

Mr. Rottweiler’s mum also becomes someone khổng lồ avoid during Neighbours Baông xã From Hell‘s later episodes, making sneaking around even more troublesome.

Ultimately, it’s the fact that Neighbours Bachồng From Hell is a remaster of two games that’re over 15 years old that holds it back from overly impressing in the year 2020. While the visuals tidy up nicely thanks to their Aardman-esque art style, the repetitive & formulaic gameplay feels firmly rooted in the past. Chances are, you’ll also get fed up of seeing Mr. Rottweiler throwing the same paddy after every triông xã you play on hyên.

Still, it’s khổng lồ Neighbours Back From Hell‘s credit that it still offers an original experience. Furthermore, it exudes the same sense of humour as 90s British sitcoms such as Bottom with its somewhat violent và madcap humour that’s also a bit risqué at times. It’s just a shame that the gameplay gets tiresome so quickly. If you fondly rethành viên the original titles và fancy reacquainting yourself, you’ll probably have a good time with Neighbours Baông chồng From Hell while it lasts. Newcomers might somewhat enjoy it too. But it’s quite forgettable once it’s over.
