Just Ok in general, great if you like a lot of fights

Summary: I've played FEAR 1 and 2 and liked them both well enough to buy FEAR 3 on sale from Steam. This one was a snooze, however. I guess I've moved on from enjoying this genre because I was basically bored with FEAR 3. The plotline with the other two never did interest me, it was the fights and general mayhem that used to be fun but . . . esh, maybe I'm just getting jaded. I found this one, although perhaps better done in some respects than the other two, just plain boring.
Summary: Better off purchasing F.E.A.R. 3 for the console than for the P.C. I own and love the original F.E.A.R. trilogy. F.E.A.R., Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate. F.E.A.R. II: Project Origin had a pathetic ending. F.E.A.R. 3 should have turned out a lot better. Absolutely no Mod support and zero online play. It disposed of the story arcs from Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate which was a mistake. No demo available either.
Summary: The significant change to the 3rd F.E.A.R. game is the duck and cover system used in games like Gears of War: instead of freely moving about and shooting, you "attach" yourself to a barrier by pressing Q and then pop out from behind cover with the arrow keys or mouse button 2 to aim before shooting. If you've never played a game that uses this system before, it takes some getting used to.
Summary: Steal for 8 bucks. About 10-12 hours playthrough. Good graphics,very nice sound and can be creepy at times. The downfall is the lack of weapons, 1 handgun, really? Who does that? 1 shotgun, a couple of assault rifles. The voice over for enemies though good is so repetitive. For the money, worth buying.
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.
