F.E.A.R (PC)

ccgr.org
14 January 2011
  • Excerpt: “In 2002, the U.S. Army formed a secret unit dedicated to combating paranormal threats to national security. The unit was named First Encounter Assault Recon.” F.E.A.R. is a horror first-person shooter from developer Monolith Productions. Monolith is known for making scary games, for example their horror classic Condemned: Criminal Origins. F.E.A.R. was an attempt to blend fast FPS action with the feeling of sheer terror that comes from Japanese horror films.

Elven Legacy

Hooked Gamers
30 March 2009
  • Conclusion: All in all, my honest impression is that Elven Legacy is little more than a re-wrapped Fantasy Wars with new units, new storyline and improved graphics. There is nothing wrong with that, however, as the game offers solid, good fun for any fan of strategy in a fantasy setting. Still, it might have been interesting to see some more ambition from the developers: bigger maps, larger armies, supply routes etc. that would take the game more towards being a real strategy game.

  • Excerpt: is essentially a one-trick pony, but is salvaged by the fact that it's an exceptionally clever one.

F.E.A.R. Review

VideoGamer.com
30 January 2007
  • Excerpt: The environments in F.E.A.R. range from concrete-walled water works, to rundown uninhabited dwellings, with a wide spectrum of colours from grey to brown and all the unpleasant tones in-between. There's really very little to get excited about. Thankfully, F.E.A.R. isn't about its uninspired locations or drab colour scheme, and you realise this the moment you pull the trigger of a gun.

Terrifying and bloody shooter for adults only.

Common Sense Media
2 December 2006
  • Summary: Parents need to know that there are many gruesome images in this game: The opening cut scene shows a man feasting on a dead body, complete with sound effects of flesh being torn, and other clips show people burning to death or undergoing a terrible medical experiment, and some scenes involve a young child. Extreme vulgarity abounds, with enemies screaming "f--k" when hit. This game would undoubtedly cause nightmares for many younger players (and maybe adults).

  • Excerpt: F.E.A.R. is influenced in many ways by Max Payne and also the horror imagery from "The Ring" (particular the US version). For the past year I have been waiting to play a good shooter. I thought perhaps HL2 would become the ultimate FPS but it left me unsatisfied. I want a shooter where you stir things up with big explosions, a shooter that has some movie-atmosphere, and shooter with game play rewarding actual skill.

F.E.A.R.

Gameguru Mania
28 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Developed by Monolith, F.E.A.R. is first person shooter that combines intense combat, creepy environments, and some seriously hardcore A.I. which means you'll find yourself on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, whenever you're not jumping out of it that is. In F.E.A.R., you play a newly recruited member of the military's elite First Encounter Assault Recon squad, a band of highly-trained commandos, specially trained and augmented to deal with supernatural...

F.E.A.R demo impressions

Gameguru Mania
27 August 2006
  • Excerpt: I captured some screens while playing the F.E.A.R demo . From what I got to play of FEAR though, I must say that I'm very impressed. This is how fort-person shooter shootouts should be IMHO. Using cover, running away when in a bad position, flanking etc. Very nice. Very scary. And...I hate that little girl! It is resource heavy, but not insanely so.

F.E.A.R. Combat Review

GamerNode
23 August 2006
  • Excerpt: F.E.A.R. Combat is the multiplayer mode taken right from the original F.E.A.R. game, packaged separately, and posted free for download. So if you know what F.E.A.R. is all about but haven’t bothered to go pick it up quite yet, F.E.A.R. Combat may be just what you’re looking for. The fact that the download is completely free should bring a lot more players into rotation on the F.E.A.R. servers, as well.
