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: Let's get this straight, you're going to read a lot of homer reviews about this game, talking about the unbelieveable graphics, etc.... The thing is, a lot of what you will read is true. This game has a lot of things going for it. But what I was disappointed in is that the single player storyline, maps, and guns are just so uninspired. After playing all the COD builds over the years, this game just seems so... second-rate.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game after having played the first two, but I came away rather disappointed. I honestly don't know what was improved during all those delays. Maybe I've played too many shooters and am just too used to the types of weapons and the kind of game play. Plus, it just wasn't that scary, and there wasn't much interaction with Alma except for a couple visions. It's not like the game didn't look or sound good, but they all do nowadays.
Summary: This game has some stunning graphics if you have the card to see them. Linear game, pretty predictable. You HAVE to use Steam, which I abhor, but what else can you do? To me that is invasive and unnecessary but this has been hashed over a hundred times and the makers of the game don't really care about the buyer! You would think they would. Anyway, my last time at Fear, they have beaten the subject to death and I need to move on.
a good shooter but not worth full retail wait untill its $30
