Conclusion: Every since the end of F.E.A.R. 2 I was waiting for F.3.A.R. cause I was like in love with the 2nd game. However, when this came out with the ability to play as two different characters as well as play with my friends and other people online I was stoked.
Conclusion: Have the consumer pay more for less as well. " Every single bloody thing about it reeks of sour milk and pus squeezed straight from a cancerous breast-like blob on life support. This is not F.E.A.R. , this is shooter #596451 with a F.E.A.R. stamp on the front of the box.
Conclusion: Overall, F.E.A.R. 3 is a solid shooter among a sea of shooters. The story is interesting, and when you combine that with a fun multi-player experience and the ability to play through the story with friends, you are left with a good game.
Excerpt: Nine months ago, Alma used Micheal Beckett to create another child. Now coming to term, Alma's labor pains are ravaging what is left of Fairport. Point Man, having been captured and interrogated by ATC forces, must now escape and find his way back to Fairport and deal with the ever-escalating danger...
Summary: What it lacks in scares it makes up for in high intensity combat.
Pros: Fast, frantic gunplay; both characters play very uniquely giving the game a lot of replay; smart enemy A.I.; all of the weapons from previous games return; competitive and fun co-op gameplay.
Cons: Barely any real scares; storyline is pretty freaking weak; endings are fairly anti-climactic; not a large variety of enemies; game not very well balanced for Fettel; ghost attacks are beyond annoying.
Excerpt: These days, we expect a lot from a triple A title. Having played some of the best, we take high-end graphics, eye-popping effects, epic scale, famous voice talent and incredible interactivity for granted. Seen in that light, the third installment in the F.E.A.R. series is a big disappointment.
Excerpt: Sibling rivalry can be rough under the best circumstances, but Point Man and Paxton Fettel inhabit a bleak, if never truly frightening, FPS filled with supernatural soldiers and skittering nightmares.
Pros: + Online and split-screen co-op breathe excitement into a formulaic campaign., + Exhilarating, addictive competitive multiplayer modes.
Cons: - Solo play as Point Man is ho-hum; somewhat disposable ranking system; multiplayer limited to four people., ? Why can't co-op players choose which character they want to be?
Conclusion: As Point Man, you have an edge in battle courtesy of your unnaturally fast reflexes. These let you trigger slow motion for brief periods, making it much easier to line up that perfect headshot or deal with an overwhelming number of assailants.
Pros: Core shooting action is satisfying, Complementary powers make co-op a blast, F***ing Run is an unusual and exciting multiplayer mode.
Cons: Unimpressive visuals, Story lacks scares or surprises.
