Feel the Fear within features seamless pre-rendered animated backgrounds with animated loops and animated streams creating the most dynamic and alive worlds yet to be seen in a video game. Original animated style character design. Pre-determined camera positions share geometry with real time 3-D models allowing camera movement while player remains in control. Become different characters through logical plot editing allowing you to take on the role of the three main characters which have their anionic style and attitude. Multi-channel character animation allows the player to perform actions such as drawing and firing weapons while walking, running, crouching and sneaking. Also features on-screen inventory for non-interrupted game play, and over 100 environments across eight distinct destinations. Comes in a 4 Disk Pack.
Easily one of the most visually striking titles, Fear Effect shines with Japanese-animation-inspired 3-D character graphics and full-motion-video environments that allow for nearly seamless transitions between story sequences and gameplay. With the exception of restoring saves and changing CDs, there's virtually no game interruption.
Unfortunately, it's very easy to die in Fear Effect, which not only wrecks the game's pacing, but can be really quite maddening. Many portions of the game are more frustrating than challenging, requiring players to die and reload their last saved game over and over until they get things just right.
And while Fear Effect's less-than-perfect controls admittedly do take some getting used to, its real-time inventory system is just plain awkward during combat sequences. It's doubtful that professional mercenaries like the ones you're playing would be fumbling about while changing or reloading weapons in the heat of battle.
Despite its flaws, Fear Effect does manage to keep you hooked, and is one of those games you just have to see through to its end. --Joe Hon, Amazon.com
