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). The game begins ...
  • Pros: Gameplay and movies blend almost seamlessly, good for shooting and puzzle fans .
  • Cons: Difficult control system at first

Fear Effect 2 Retro Helix

  • 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 ...
  • Pros: cool graphics, great storyline , challenging
  • Cons: Not for children .  Seriously .

  • 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. The shooting action is good, you control ...
  • Pros: Excellent graphics and very high gore rating
  • Cons: 18 or upwards only, sorry, and very puzzling at times

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!) The game also suffers from being too short - but I'd much rather ...
  • Pros: Story, graphics,
  • Cons: Loading times, looping graphics

Had an effect on me!

  • Excerpt: "When you first see Fear Effect you initially think "What's this all about then?". The cover shows almost Japanese Manga style characters rather than your Resident Evil style, semi-realistic characters. This is half the charm of Fear Effect. The game is based on a deep storyline involving our characters, who are a bunch of experienced mercenaries and a chinese businessman, whose daughter has disappeared. Our characters, Hana (voluptuous beauty), ...
  • Pros: Gorgeous graphics and great storyline
  • Cons: Bosses are hard as hell and it doesn't last long

  • Excerpt: "I borrowed this game from a Friend and enjoyed it so much that two days later I went out and bought it myself, the thought of my friend coming around to ask for it back at any time was to much to bear. Fear Effect is an action/adventure game with a very distinctive Manga style that adds great atmosphere to your gaming experience. The three main characters are all very well realised and all three are playable in a storyline that can change every ...
  • Pros: Great style
  • Cons: Does not utilise full screen size

"Crazy effects"

  • Summary: Dafür, dass es sich um ein PS1 SPiel handelt, muss man wirklich sagen, dass es für damalige Verhältnisse ein absoluter HInguckerwar. Allein schon Grafisch gesehen, innovativ. Wie im Komik, coole Charaktere, Spannung, Actionreichtum und wenn es noch Lautmalerei dau gäbe, dann bkäme es statt der 5 wohl 6 Sterne von mir. Bin froh es erworben zu haben, denn jetzt kann ich es endlich zu Ende spielen.

¿Hasta que punto eres capaz de enfrentar tu miedo?

  • Summary: Fear Effect: -------------Aspecto técnico:----------------- ---Gráficos: Los gráficos de este juego no son de los mejores, es decir, hay que tener en cuenta 3 cosas, la primera, es un juego de Playstation 1, lo que lo limita bastante, la segunda es un juego del año 2000, y la tercera, que han tratado de realizar los gráficos de forma que parezca un animé, por lo que quien busque gráficos redondeados y modelos perfectos, le recomiendo parar de leer en este punto, sin...
  • Pros: Los puzzles, los personajes, la historia
  • Cons: Para aquellos a quien les moleste, es dificil

FEAR EFFECT!!

bazzizzo, Ciao
20 November 2000
  • Excerpt: Pensavate che dopo Lara Croft mamma eidos fosse andata in menopausa? vi sbagliavate di grosso! La nuova nata si chiama Hanaed e' la prorompente e supersexy protagonista di questa coinvolgente avventura tra l'umano e il soprannaturale. L'impatto iniziale con il gioco e' notevole: la grafica in puro stile cartoon ed e' curata davvero nei minimi dettagli. Le ambientazioni sono piuttosto varie: dai tetti dei grattacieli iniziali vi troverete, poi, in ...
  • Pros: grafica
  • Cons: linearita'
