Summary: I read the reviews and bought this game because I really wanted to buy Crysis 3, but wanted to play this one first to get a sense of the game. Well the game itself is great. I enjoy a wide variety of single player FPS, and this one is no exception. Rather thin on the storyline, very linear in play (as in, you cannot really veer off the storyline to go "explore" the world), but other than that, a good romp.
Summary: Gameplay progress is linear, that is, there is only one defined route directing you through a scene. This is as opposed to an open world game such as Fallout or Far Cry where you can wander freely and progress randomly through the game. FEAR is simply forcing the player to follow the cook book story line. The one advantage this game had was the ability to skip over the long, tedious and unnecessary cut scenes setting up the supposed motive behind your next quest.
Summary: great game,, lousy ending, cant wait for the next one. like the first i got blown out of my seat at a point or two in the game. anything like this that can make an involuntary fear reaction is tops in my book!
