Eager to get started? Here’s the game plan:
Step 1: First Click the link below, then click Join, and provide your data to start your subscription to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate plan. You will need a Microsoft account for this, but if you’re not already a member of the Microsoft family, you’ll be prompted to create an account while subscribing to the Game Pass.
Step 2: Once you’re officially a subscriber, your next pit stop is the Game Pass page. Use the search bar to find Hello Neighbor 2.

However, there’s a workaround – download this handy extension for your Chrome or Edge browser, enable it, and click at the center of your screen when you start the game to enable keyboard and mouse controls.

About Hello Neighbor 2
“Hello Neighbor 2,” the waggish sequel to the original game, crafted by the connoisseurs of quirkiness at Eerie Guest Studios, invites you back to the enigmatic neighborhood of Raven Brooks, albeit with a fresh set of oddballs and a tantalizingly mysterious narrative. Released on December 6, 2022, this game offers an intriguing blend of suspense, intrigue, and puzzle-solving that is as addictive as a midnight snack raid, yet as bewildering as assembling an IKEA bookshelf.
Embarking on this quirky adventure, you don’t fill the shoes of the child protagonist from the previous installment, Nicky Roth. Instead, you hop into the role of Quentin, a plucky journalist with the curiosity of a cat and the stubbornness of a mule. Quentin suspects Theodore Peterson, the enigmatic villain from the first game, of a string of child disappearances, and it’s up to you to uncover the truth.
The game’s narrative takes you through the sleepy town of Raven Brooks, now looking more deserted than a ghost town after a poltergeist eviction. The once ominous house of Mr. Peterson stands dilapidated, like a haunted castle stripped of its spooks. However, the abandoned town doesn’t mean you’re alone; far from it. A cavalcade of characters – from vigilant cops to grumpy shopkeepers – are ever watchful, ready to toss you out on your ear if they catch you snooping around.
The gameplay stays true to its roots, dishing out a buffet of puzzles that would make the Sphinx scratch its head. And it’s not just Mr. Peterson playing the part of the grumpy gatekeeper. The town’s residents, each with their unique quirks and grievances, add an extra layer of complexity to your investigative endeavors. You’re not just unlocking doors; you’re also attempting to unlock the secrets hidden within the minds of these peculiar inhabitants.
As you navigate this labyrinth of intrigue, you’ll need to tap into your inner detective – or perhaps a seasoned hoarder – as you scavenge for tools, keys, and other helpful items. A crowbar here, scissors there, and before you know it, you’ve got a veritable toolshed in your pockets! You’ll need to keep your wits about you, though. The game hides clues with the subtlety of a chameleon on a Jackson Pollock painting.
The game may boast a horror tag, but I found it about as terrifying as a kitten wearing a Halloween mask. Yes, there’s an ever-present sense of dread, but it’s more like the feeling you get when you realize you’ve left your wallet at home, rather than the bloodcurdling terror of a zombie apocalypse. There’s more frustration than fright when you get caught and booted out of a building for the umpteenth time, forcing you to trudge back and continue your puzzle-solving pilgrimage.
“Hello Neighbor 2” shows off its visual prowess with aplomb. Built on Unreal Engine 4, the game’s aesthetic is a delightful cocktail of cartoonish charm and meticulous detail, perfect for players of all ages. The sound design matches the quality of the visuals, with an engaging soundtrack and useful sound cues that nudge you subtly towards the solution of each puzzle.
The developers have made some lofty claims about the game’s AI, promising that it evolves to learn your patterns. However, the AI, while occasionally crafty, didn’t seem to be gunning for a chess grandmaster title anytime soon. It had its moments of brilliance, but also plenty of instances where it seemed as clueless as a goldfish in a calculus class.
While “Hello Neighbor 2” offers an engaging experience, it’s not without its hiccups and facepalms. For starters, the controls, at times, feel as cooperative as a rebellious teenager on chore day. They are often clunky and unresponsive, and in high-stakes situations, this can be as frustrating as accidentally pouring orange juice into your cereal.
The game’s difficulty curve, on the other hand, has the consistency of a roller coaster designed by a madman. It oscillates wildly between a leisurely stroll in the park and an uphill climb on a mountain of buttered toast. This erratic difficulty gradient can make the gameplay feel disjointed and uneven, like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole with a sledgehammer.
Moreover, the narrative suffers from a case of ‘show, don’t tell’ taken to the extreme. While the developers have done an admirable job of weaving a narrative without a single line of dialogue, it often feels like you’re trying to read a book in the dark. The plot, as intriguing as it is, gets lost in translation, leaving you scratching your head more often than not.
Despite these blemishes, “Hello Neighbor 2” has a certain charm that’s as undeniable as the gravitational pull of a black hole. Its eccentric characters, intricate puzzles, and the sheer audacity of its AI create a unique gaming experience that’s as refreshing as a lemonade stand in the Sahara.
In conclusion, “Hello Neighbor 2” is like a beautifully decorated cake with a few unexpected raisins – a bit of a surprise, but still enjoyable to consume. It’s a game that will challenge your puzzle-solving skills, tickle your funny bone, and occasionally make you want to pull your hair out. It’s not perfect, but it has enough charm and quirk to warrant a visit to Raven Brooks. After all, who doesn’t love a good mystery?
So, if you’re a fan of the original or simply have a penchant for animated stealth horror games with a side order of whimsy, then “Hello Neighbor 2” might just be the peculiar house on the block that’s worth investigating. Just don’t forget to bring your lockpicks…and maybe a sense of humor, too. You’re going to need them.
