Freddy's Night Shift: Residency is the remake of the classic horror game, released in 1990. The game is quite similar to its predecessors, except that this time around, Michael must guide you through the haunted houses, avoiding the evil spirits, and all the other things that will surely be attacking you throughout your exploration of the facility. This is one of the few horror games that doesn't try to do a lot with the story, and it's not like you're expected to develop any skills other than avoiding the creepy crawlers. If you like adventure games with a little bit more horror mixed in, then you will probably love playing Freddy's Night Shift: Residency.
Although it has one or two action elements, I feel that this game would have been better without them. It's not that the action isn't good; it's just that I personally don't think it's suited for a horror game. The majority of the scenes are quite quiet, and the focus is definitely on the creepy crawlers instead of the Jason-style heroics Michael is trying to perform. The darkness of the facility definitely doesn't help the action game feel more intense; however, the overall atmosphere is well done and gives Freddy's Night Shift: Residency an eerie, atmospheric setting.
I don't know why, but I seem to get better reactions to the same scary noises from this game when played on Facebook. It probably has something to do with the fact that the soundtracks were remixed from the old arcade versions of the game, and also because the environments are very similar to those found in the original. All in all, I'd recommend playing Freddy's Night Shift: Residency on Facebook, even if you aren't looking to play it anymore. I think it's a fantastic game and one of the best action games out there today. If you haven't checked it out yet, give it a go!
