F.E.A.R. (PC): Not as frightening as you may expect
31 August 2008
Summary: I borrowed this from my brother who told me that it was a very scary game. Can't say I felt the same way about it. Sure, initially it's quite scary but I'm not entirely sure whether that's due to just the game or the fact that I was told it was scary and discovered it had a reputation as being a frightening game. Regardless, after you've seen the little girl appear twice that's pretty much it.
Pros: Graphics, sound and gameplay are all great
Cons: Environment is far too similar for each level
Excerpt: "F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assisstant Recon. A unit created by the guyswith nerves of steel that fear nothing but their own. To be honest playing FEAR is not like playing anything else.

Pros: Atmospheric . Scary . Gattling gun . AI .

Excerpt: "F.E.A.R. is a 1st person shooter PC game filled with violence and horror. This one is really spooky.

Excerpt: "F.E.A.R - what do we fear most? a game that doesnt deliver whats promised of it. and this game is no exception! (phew) Personally i love playing first person shooters online, and love it when they actually work. This is perhaps one of the best i have played. Forget the single player mode - we completed that - it was good and all but what we really want to know about is online play right? Well the beauty is the ability to modify the levels ...
Pros: Amazing Graphics, Great Online Play, Game flexibility
Cons: Unrealistic Unarmed Attack - too many cheaters
Excerpt: "* Finding the time * I try to play video games now and then, though having so little time these days I don’t get to play much. I like the first person shooter type games and really enjoy the classics, like Doom and Half Life, though after playing them so many times, they tend to get a little boring. I don’t buy many games so I’m picky on the ones I buy. After browsing through Amazon a while back I found ‘F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon’, ...
Excerpt: "Sierra has delivered not only a graphicly stunning but also very immersive FPS. Lighting is used to tremendous effect in creating a very scary atmosphere, which will at times have you jumping out of your seat at the slightest thing.

If you are ...
