Summary: Honestly the whole time i played this was just one yawn after another and it surprised me considering that half life one and two were done by the same people and both of those are excellent honestly rent it first or don't just not the greatest game out there.
Summary: PSN ID GremDUDE. This was the 2nd game that I finished on my PS3--the first being Half Life 2 on the Orange Box. This is a great game for FPS fans and delivers plenty of scares and jumps. Like Half Life 2, you have to deal with a flashlight that only lasts about 20 seconds or so. Although this is gimicky, it adds an intensity to the game as you don't want to use the flashlight unless you absolutely have to as you don't want to find yourself getting attacked in the dark.
Summary: It's a decent game, good for some fun playing time. Worth it if you can pick it up for close to $20. Didn't try online play, so this review is only based on the campaign. The Good: - Interesting plot, but lots of holes. - Fun. - Some good creepy moments. Even made me jump a few times. - Bonus level and several challenge levels. Good for some replay value. - Decent campaign length.
Summary: Ok, so FEAR on the PS3 is easily one of my favorite games. My favorite types of movies are action and horror and they blended both very well in this game. Sound: The sound on this game is perfect for setting the mood. The soundtrack is very creepy. Graphics: This is where the game really hurts. For a PS3 game, the graphics are disappointing to say the least. They really should have put more polish on this game. The lighting however is top notch.
Summary: I have to agree with the general concensus. The graphics overall are 'eh' ok. I thought the graphics did get better further on in the game and they are enhanced when in 'focus or slomo' mode. It's not what I hoped it would be but once you master the techniques it is very fun to play. I would recommend renting it first but give it a chance. I'd say 3-5 hours of gameplay should tell you if it is a game for you.
Conclusion: The load times are slow and the controllers are very hard to get used to. The slow motion effect is so cool and very useful. Although the graphics are impressive, the light effects are not what you would expect. The ability to control camera during cut scenes are cool. I would not really recomend it.
Quality title with major multichannel sound issues

Summary: As to be expected from Monolith Productions, the studio which created this game, the game and sound design and writing are excellent. The visuals may look dated, but the game holds up, even more than three years after the original PC game, of which this is a port, was published. There is one major caveat, though.
Summary: With the sequel just around the corner, it seemed like a good time to revisit this. Its been 2 years since the PS3 version, but 4 long years since its first release. Time hasn't done it any favours, neither has a shoddy conversion from Day 1 studios. The fact this was a launch game still doesent fully explain the difference in quality. Painful load times and jagged textures don't create the fear.
