Cold Fear

Thunderbolt Games
28 March 2008
  • Excerpt: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Resident Evil 4 is probably sitting in a corner blushing a deep crimson and awkwardly avoiding eye contact with Cold Fear . Perhaps accusing Cold Fear of being an average imitation of the Capcom classic is selling it somewhat short, yet the comparisons and influences are clear to see.

Cold Fear Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: Horror titles always seem to have a certain thing in common. The overwhelming threat comes from some kind of evil source; be it a mutated zombie or a crazed ghost, you can bet your bottom dollar that somebody has been up to hi-jinks; which makes Cold Fear a bit of an oddity. It's a horror game set on a boat, you see, and while there is a thoroughly evil threat to your well-being, there is another, much more immediate threat: Falling off the boat.

  • Excerpt: Zombie mutants, a dark conspiracy, low lighting, a lone gunman with limited ammo … sounds like a survival horror game alright. The situation may not be novel, but Cold Fear makes up for this by dropping the game into the heaving hull of a Russian whaler caught in a gale. This gives the game a lot of potential for some innovative gameplay and the game does have some success on this point.

  • Excerpt: Swapping out body armor for a Coast Guard certified personal floatation device (PFD), Cold Fear takes the survival/horror genre into new ground... that being open water. Except on a boat. In the water. You get the idea.

  • Conclusion: Other game tactics include using pieces of the environment to do the work for you. You can shoot explosive barrels, fire extinguishers, and different-colored valves to create an environmental trap for oncoming enemies. From time to time, you'll encounter a fight between two of the enemy species, and you can let them fight among themselves before you intervene.
  • Pros: Some neat gameplay elements, great moody music, unique outdoor environment effects.
  • Cons: Generic and derivative atmosphere, not very scary, some moments of weak AI.

  • Conclusion: And that's it. If you like your gaming intense and frightening and you enjoy Survival Horror games (and you're of a legal drinking age), I'd recommend giving this solid little zombie title a crack. I found it enjoyable - though not as enjoyable as listening to Ashlee Simpson on full blast with a metal bucket on my head, banging away at it with monkey wrench, simultaneously losing all control of my renal system. But still it's a bit of fun.

  • Summary: Cold Fear is a good survival horror title let down by some horrible load times when entering each room. Nice graphics and sound can be found throughout and it's a game which fans of the genre would do well to check out.
