F.E.A.R. (Xbox 360)

 

When you get down to it, the gun is the heart and soul of a first-person shooter. Even the genre's name alludes to this fact. Yet while shooters have been around for more than a decade, very few of them have captured the visceral experience of firing a...

FEAR Review

 

FPS with survival horror elements. Sounds good right? Well it's not that good.

There's a concept here that seems to be a bit muddled. The game plays a lot like other military FPS games although it's a little light on the realism. That bring us to the horror but there's just not much there. Yeah, there are some sequences that...

F.E.A.R. 3 Review

 

It's short on scares, but satisfying shooting and exciting cooperative play make F.E.A.R. 3 a thoroughly enjoyable shooter.

Core shooting action is satisfying ; Complementary powers make co-op a blast ; F***ing Run is an unusual and exciting multiplayer mode

Unimpressive visuals ; Story lacks scares or surprises

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. There's...

One of the biggest tasks of being a developer in this day and age is creating an experience that really stands out from the pack. There is no genre where...

Genuinely Creepy Story ; Incredible Visuals ; Slow-Mo Giblets ; Solid Online Mode

Repetetive Environments ; Not Much Different Than The PC Version

F.E.A.R. Review [PC, PS3, X360]

 

For the uninitiated, F.E.A.R., or First Encounter Assault Recon is a first person shooter developed by Monolith, and published by Sierra in 2005 for the PC. It was well received by many critics, and even won some awards for its story, gameplay, and...

Tries for a good story ; Creepy visions can give you a good scare ; Extremely formidable AI

Winds up with the same amount of depth as any another FPS ; Variety in environments is lacking ; Inconsistent and somewhat dated graphics

F.E.A.R. is a great game for the gunfights, but the story is pretty simplistic, the atmosphere fairly lifeless, and the level design is nothing special. While F.E.A.R. has aged better than some other games out there, it is not the be all end all of...

F.E.A.R. Review

 

2005 brought us many memorable games but only a select few were received with as much acclaim and anticipation as F.E.A.R.. However, does a successful PC game necessarily beget a great console game? Monolith and Vivendi thought it did so let's review...

F.E.A.R (Xbox 360) Review

 

Best shotgun EVER.

I’ve been trying to think of a good way to sum this game up to show just how utterly fantastic it is so I’ll just say this. F.E.A.R is not just the best FPS game on the 360 (which it is with ease) but the best console FPS game since Halo 2. It is...

F.E.A.R. Review

 

F.E.A.R. is a game that will keep you on your toes and interested until the final credits roll.

When it comes down to it though, this is not your father's shooter, full of brain dead opposition that makes each level a carbon copy of the previous one. F.E.A.R. is a game that will keep you on your toes, keep you guessing, and keep you interested...

F.E.A.R. (Xbox 360)

 

Back when the Xbox 360 was released last year, it played host to numerous ports like GUN and Quake 4 that were sloppy, lazy, and had many gamers furious that they were paying $10 extra for a game just because it was on the 360. Around the same time,...

A top-notch port of a great game ; Very nice graphics and spectacular sound ; Some of the best enemy AI ever ; Instant Action mode is a great addition for adrenaline junkies and competitive players

Mostly, this is pretty much a straight port of a year-old game ; Repetitive enemies ; Repetitive environments

F.E.A.R., while not without its faults, is still a top-notch title worthy of a spot in any FPS fan's library.

Creepy little girls, cannibal killers, and guns oh my!

The single player campaign will run around 1015 hours and you will get plenty of scares, enemies, and highpowered weaponry throughout. Multiplayer on the other hand can only be done one wayonline. No split screen, no system link, if you aren't online...

Product Specifications

You aren't a soldier. You are a weapon. A paramilitary force infiltrates a multi billion dollar aerospace compound taking hostages, but issuing no demands. The government responds by sending in its best special operations teams, only to have them obliterated. Live footage of the massacre is cut short by an unexpected wave of destruction that leaves military leaders stunned and in disbelief. With U.S. Special Forces in over their heads, the Commander in Chief turns to his final option: you. You've been trained to handle the inexplicable, armed with experimental high tech weaponry, and given full executive authority to end the crisis by any means necessary.
