F.E.A.R. = F.P.S. that's sometimes good, but never great

Summary: F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) is a first-person shooter with a psychological horror spin. Developed by Monolith studios and released in 2005, F.E.A.R.'s story revolves around a Special Forces team who investigates and contains paranormal phenomena. You play as a new but nameless member of the F.E.A.R. team called in to eliminate a cannibalistic killer named Paxton Fettel who controls an army of cloned supersoldiers.
Summary: I called it that because the third one, an expansion pack - perseus mandate never ran no matter what I tried, so I have no idea what it is like. The first two are all right - the movement when you kill the head bob, is good. the weapons in it are good but the big launcher is too slow to reload. my fav was the auto turrets, what a great idea, you just toss in a few to a busy zone and wait, then clean up the rest of the bad guys.

Summary: Great game. Graphics were great, play was great. Did not use much of the ghost aspect as expected, only a few scenes which were not necessary for the game? And they were repetitive and interrupted game play. But, working around the ghost aspect it was quite an exceptional game. I am on the second installment now, still just as exciting and still with the same flaw...
Summary: Like so many games, this game did not live up to the hype surrounding it. It's not a bad game, and at times it can be quite enjoyable (it kept me interested enough so that I played through the whole game). However, there are several major flaws that seriously hamper what could have been one of the best shooters of 2005. 1. There's not enough variety. It's pretty much the same eerily lighted corridors teeming with the same enemies shooting you with the same weapons.
Summary: It's a fun game, but the violence is quite gratuitous, and there is far too much swearing. It's entirely unnecessary to hear the worst swears in the English language every other time you start shooting at an enemy. Also, the ending requires you to kill a helpless, unarmed person. Even if he has done evil things, there should be another option to continue the game other than shooting or hitting someone who is not offering resistance.
Summary: This is the best shooter i'v seen in a long time, but it has major problems. Fear part #1: It has an in-depth storyline. You get small bits at a time. The action is top notch. The AI works as team against you. You really have think out how to beat you enemy. The slow mo is a big help. The fear elements in the game will scare the hell out of you. You be almost leaping out your chair most of the time. This game really messes with you head.
Summary: Fear Platinum was a bargain and a good game. The controls work well, and the plot holds your interest all the way through. I have never made it through the first game, although I have played the other two just a little to get the feel of them. Unless you are a super gamer and want to play intuitively, I highly recommend you go on the internet to find a walkthrough for each game and print them for you own use. All three are available running 25 to 35 pages for each game.
Summary: The creepiness of this game wears off halfway through so that the "chills" are pretty much ignored. At the start of the game there are plenty of things going bump in the night, but by midway it seems even the developers got tired of it and the spooky sights and sounds of random objects moving on their own trickle off. The controls are sweet and the leveling up is consistent, however more could have been done with the fear meter.
Summary: I bought this game for my husband because it was recommended by a friend. It's a good first person shooter type game if you're into the gore and loud scary sounds. My husband probably played this game for a day then stopped. He didn't like how you need to keep the cd's in the computer in order to play the game. It needed to be loaded each time which bothered him. The game itself was just okay.
