  • Summary: I remember buying Half-life just so I could play this mod (but now its a free standalone). Amazing graphics (for half life), amazing story, amazing endings, amazing setting and good gameplay. Also, it's how I got my username! Polisbil and Kaniner.

  • Summary: Free games already gain a huge score for that purpose, but few free games have such an original and thrilling game as Cry of Fear. It was made as a psychological horror game, based of the Source Engine and by god; is it fantastic. The atmosphere, pacing and scares of this game are better than some of the recent entries in AAA horror games like Silent Hill Downpour or FEAR 3. If you can, purchase Cry of Fear and you won't regret it; apart from wetting yourself.

  • Summary: Not a bad game, really scary at some points. Graphics and game-play could have been a bit smoother, but other than that this is pretty fun. I would recommend you download it, its FREE why not.

  • Summary: One of the best horror mods I've ever played. Old-school style horror elements meet fluent new era gameplay to create a quite unique horror experience. Great atmosphere? Check! Limited inventory and scarce ammo? Check! Good duration? Check! Free? CHECK! Even though it's great, it has some big flaws. The first one is its plot. Let just say it wouldn't win a contest for little children. The second and last one is that some enemy looks are nonsensical.

  • Summary: A real surprise, I tried it just by the word "free", but I found a game done with pure heart, specially knowing the limitations that the developers faced creating it. The atmosphere is great, even when there are some "cheap" scares here and there, However, there are some minor issues with the quality of the animations and some models, but I think fans of games like Silent Hill or penumbra will be pleased.

  • Summary: I have only played the co-operative game which is supposedly entirely different from the single player campaign. Given the co-operative campaign's extremely poor design, I did not bother playing the single player campaign. The general atmosphere of the game is excellent, the fire arms are interesting and the monsters are simplistic yet spooky.

  • Summary: Absolutely terrifying. There were actually a few instances where I actually panicked & knocked over my monitor. The atmosphere in Cry of fear is what scares me most, it is so well done. The voice acting is decent, but I think Simon's voice could have used a bit of work. Overall though, this game really kicks ass!

  • Summary: Cry of Fear was an audacious Half-Life 1 mod that turned into a full fledged game for release on Steam about a year after the release. In short, this game is great. This game contains a gripping story of a young man named Simon who is lost in himself and struggling to survive when monsters appear. Cry of Fear contains a single player campaign that claims to take about eight hours time, but for my first playthrough I was about 12-16 hours of gametime.

  • Summary: Cry of Fear is a horror game developed by Team Psykskallar. It has a good storyline. Good game mechanics .The atmosphere is dense. The jumpscares were there at the right time. I like the sound effects and the music. About 8-10 hours of gameplay. Good replay value .I find that some of the monsters get quite annoying later in the game. The graphics doesn't stand up to todays standards, but that is easily forgotten.

  • Summary: Absolutely moronic "horror" game. Unless you're the kind of person that gets afraid when things get dark, and then suddenly you see a goofy face and hear a loud scream, then this isn't for you. That's all this game can muster in the "scares" department. It's an HL1 mod rereleased, and it shows its age. Not much has been done to it, not even enough to get co-op working correctly. Zero effort, zero scares, zero entertainment. Skip on this.
