Ultra Custom Night Review
For anyone that’s familiar with the FNAF formula, you’ll know what you’re getting out of this one, but for those that don’t know, the gameplay for the series and in turn, this game, is fairly simple, thankfully. In terms of the gameplay, you sit in your office, monitoring exactly that, monitors, all to see if any of the animatronic animals that you’re meant to be watching have moved from their original positions. If they have, you had best make sure you seal the blast doors to your office or put on an animatronic mask in the hopes of avoiding certain death.
The gameplay itself isn’t very complex, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t strategically in-depth. Each character that you select to go up against has an AI difficulty assigned to them, which goes all the way up to 20. This means you can go up against a group of difficulty 20 AI characters, all with their own unique ways of scaring the living daylights out of you and ruining your run all at the same time.
At no point are you required to make the game as difficult as that, but that’s the beauty of Ultra Custom Night; it’s the fact that you can make the game as easy or as difficult as you want it to be. With this game, it doesn’t really matter if you’re an FNAF aficionado or if this is your first outing; the game caters perfectly to everyone that’s into FNAF, even if it’s just a passing interest.
Graphically, the game isn’t anything to really write home about. It looks just like every other FNAF fan game that uses the same game engine. On top of this, though, with the game having over 500 different characters to pick and choose from, all of which have come from different sources, their artwork can really vary in terms of quality. Due to this, some characters definitely have more work put into them than others, which is understandable, but it does drag the game’s visual fidelity to some degree.
On the flipside, though, the audio for the game is understandably pretty darn good. The atmosphere the game provides as you try your best to wait out your nightshift, in the hopes that you aren’t stuffed into an animatronic suit 3 sizes too small is really well done. Again, these seem to be just a natural trade-off from using the FNAF engine, but that doesn’t diminish just how truly creepy the game can be when it needs to
Overall, for anyone that’s looking for the ultimate in Five Nights at Freddy’s experiences, Ultra Custom Night is definitely one of the best to get a hold of. The vast roster of over 500 characters means you’re never going to get tired with just how many characters you can pick and choose from. Unless you actively try, there’s very little chance you’ll get through all of them, so you’re going to be plenty busy with this one. When it comes to the graphics, it doesn’t do anything special, but at the same time, it certainly wasn’t anything inoffensive either.
Ultimately, though, you’re going to be playing this one for the gameplay and the developer knows that hence why there’s almost limitless potential with this one for any FNAF fan.
- With over 500+ characters to choose from, you’re never going to get tired of the selection available to you
- Each character’s AI can be pushed all the way up to level 20 individually and that makes for a unique run every single time
- Plenty of customization is implemented with this one and makes for the ultimate Five Nights at Freddy’s experience for fans of the series
- Audio does a really good job of amplifying the unsettling and frightening atmosphere this game provides
- The audio can be excruciatingly loud if you’re not careful with the volume levels
- Not all of the 500+ characters share a similar art style, so some of them can look a little odd as a result
- It doesn’t do enough to separate itself from the FNAF formula for those that want something a bit different
