Fear Effective

scream4br..., Ciao
16 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Fear Effect featured Motion FX for the first time ever; although you can see when the FMV loops, the backgrounds feel very much alive. A third-person adventure; the anime-style characters are well animated, but, in combat sometimes you are fighting several virtually identical enemies.
  • Pros: Cool graphics and settings, great twists to story, challenging
  • Cons: Can't save options, loading up from last save on death

It's A Playable Movie

  • Excerpt: I recently bought this game second hand in reasonable condition for £10. It has four discs which at first makes you think that you're going to get a lot of playtime out of the game, think again, the four discs is a bit of a con really as they hardly last any time at all. However, there are points in the game which are particularly hard and may require yoyu to start again if you have been wasting your ammo(This has happened to me twice).
  • Pros: Gameplay and movies blend almost seamlessly, good for shooting and puzzle fans .
  • Cons: Difficult control system at first

Fear Effect 2 Retro Helix

9 May 2001
  • Excerpt: I bought Fear Effect about a month ago, popped it in my PSOne, and was instantly sucked in. From the gameplay to the storyline to the graphics, this game is nearly flawless. Whether you're a "kill everything that moves" person or a brain-teaser fanatic, this game has something for you. Almost seamless transitions between gameplay and movie sequences, sharp graphics and sound, and a killer storyline make this game stand head and shoulders above its peers.
  • Pros: cool graphics, great storyline , challenging
  • Cons: Not for children .  Seriously .

What's going on......

  • Excerpt: Ok. This is pretty attractive when you first hear about the cool graphics Gameplay: Very easy at points but the level of difficulty increases. The storyline seems understandable, but only just. You get a good selection of weapons, the puzzles aren't too hard to figure out, and it's pretty gruesome at points Graphics: Good advanced graphics where you are within an FMV scenario but I would prefer it if it was made Resident Evil like graphics.
  • Pros: creepy sound, quite horrific, definitely a 15
  • Cons: screen is smaller when you play this game

  • Excerpt: This was a game that my cousin brought with him when he came to stay over in the Easter Holidays, like many of you I hadn’t heard of it. But after being persuaded to play with him, I actually quite enjoyed. Let me tell you a bit about the game, I was quite surprised when the opening scene was set of a Chinese funeral with the death of Wee Ming, a bit morbid I thought. However, soon you realise that it’s not actually happened and you are put 24 hours behind what happened.

Unbelievably Good

  • Excerpt: I recently bought this game as I had read a review on it in a magazine. I am glad that i read it as when i got home with it I started playing and got really into it. The backround graphics were stunning. It really portrayed the image of a city. From the neon lights before you fight the first boss to the graphics of the room in the slutclub.I was slightly disappointed with the graphics of the people. It was cartoony and boxy. But overall the story line was good.
  • Pros: good graphics
  • Cons: length

Fear Effect reviewed

MikeScoat..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: 4 discs, but a little quick to finish each one. Apart from that this is a very original game, with excellent use of the Motion graphics engine, some of the sequences are superb. The gore is quite intense, there are some sections you wouldn't want your kids to see while you play it, but they crop up so unexpectedly that you'd better put them to bed and lock the door before you start playing this one.
  • Pros: Excellent graphics and very high gore rating
  • Cons: 18 or upwards only, sorry, and very puzzling at times

  • Excerpt: I'd heard mixed reviews from my friends and various magazines so as a had a bit of cash set aside I bought this game and began playing. The first thing I noticed was the at times difficult and frustrating control system. Luckily, mainly because of the gorgeous manga visuals I stuck with the game and within the first hour I got to grips with the controls and was off, shooting thugs and the like.
  • Pros: Graphics are awesome guns are huge
  • Cons: Controls are fuddled

Fear the Effect of the Fear

Darrenwor..., Ciao
13 July 2000
  • Excerpt: Fear Effect is a very good game. Whether you look at the graphics (Resident Evil style pre-rended stuff with Manga characters), the storyline (the Matrix meets Akira) or the puzzles (fiendishly difficult but all the clues are there if you can work them out) the game is perfect. The only niggle is the loading times after you die, much too long, especially as you die often (very often!
  • Pros: Story, graphics,
  • Cons: Loading times, looping graphics
