So I just managed to beat F.E.A.R. I'm pretty amazed at how friggin' great it is! I mean, the theme and everything, it's just awesome.
Sure there's alot of good shooters out there, but nothing quite like F.E.A.R. Not many games makes me want to turn the lights back on, after I turned them off if you know what I mean :D
The sound was another thing. It was brilliant. I normally turn off the music whenever I play, but I simply couldn't in this game. It just had to be turned on!
And the ending, what a bloody cliffhanger lol. Guess I gotta go buy the expansion.
So what do YOU think about this game?
I think the game was quite scary. I once had to play with my eyes covered when... Alma craweled right in front of me on 4 legs ( 2 arms and 1 leg ) ... Yeah.. those were the moments.. I loved the ending. I mean, not the ending, i loved the scene before the ending..where she was showing on every few seconds ;)

I thought it was alright. Doesn't match Call of Duty 4 in my eyes though. :)
well of course. it was made like 3 years later! lol
yea im gonna remember this game for the rest of my life.
i think the best part of FEAR is the AI
depending on what youre doing, where youre hiding, etc, the enemies react almost humanlike
maybe they'll rush in
or maybe they'll use grenades to flush you out
the game is unbelievable
if Doom 3 had better AI (the AI sucks) it might've been the best thing until FEAR came out
I never really did finish the game. It got deleted by accident. The saves were all messed up and yeah got deleted.
It was a satisfying game of course, the sounds were good, of course, the graphics are amazing at the time and all, but it wasn't scary, its just frightening.
I thought the game was going to be a lot more than it was. Don't get me wrong, it was a solid shooter, with a good storyline. For some reason it just bored the hell out of me by the time I was halfway through. Then I lost the disc so I couldn't continue, but I figured it was only going to get more boring anyways.
FEAR is a very good game, but apparrently the expansion pack sucks. It was rated like 4/10 by the official 360 magazine and before anyone asks the 360 version is EXACTLY the same as the PC one. The expansion is meant to be scarier though.
STALKER and FALLOUT 3 are good aswell.
Yeah FEAR's a great game, I'm not much a fan of the whole horror genre, but the game mechanics in FEAR are well done I think, of course the graphics are starting to look pretty dated even on max.
Tbh STALKER didn't scare me that much, that is, of course, until I played it on max graphics.
Yeah, F.E.A.R. actually made me so scared I had nightmares, but now I'm used to it. Same thing for E.P. and P.M. Give those demos a try if you like. Buy believe me, even though my comp can play F.E.A.R. at high settings, it's pretty good on the 360. In fact, it was the best shooting game I have ever bought until maybe Halo 3 came out.
I can honestly say that fear is one of the three games that has ever managed to scare me. One other is by the same people that made fear (monolith), and it's Condemned: Criminal Origins, I'm actually torrenting it right now lol. The other is the Shalebridge Cradle level in Thief: Deadly Shadows.
