Product Description

Unleashing a paranormal horror first person shooter that delivers frenetic combat grounded in reality. F.3.A.R. evolves the brand, introducing Divergent Co-op for two players: deep, social gameplay that gives players distinctly different abilities that affect their own play as well as the experience of gamers they are playing with'or against. Players can take on the roles of Point Man, a genetically enhanced soldier with superhuman reflexes and the ability to manipulate time, or the undead spirit of his brother Paxton Fettel, a paranormal entity who possesses incredible psychic powers.

PS3 F.3.A.R.'s frenetic combat experience empowers players with robust features like active 360 degree cover, evolved slow-mo modes, phasing portal systems and best in class mech combat to face an army of soldiers and paranormal enemies that don't follow the rules of reality.

Nine months ago, Point Man and his F.E.A.R. squad were tapped to stop a telepathically gifted cannibal who had begun a murderous rampage. Point Man learned the target was his brother, Paxton Fettel, working alongside their tortured and psychically powerful mother, Alma Wade. Despite this revelation, Point Man followed orders to destroy them and subsequently ravaged the surrounding city and most of his F.E.A.R. team. Now, it is clear that Alma's psychic influence survived' and worse, she is about to birth something that could destroy the world. Fettel has returned from death with an unclear agenda, refusing to leave Point Man's side and asking for help to reach Alma. The remaining F.E.A.R. squad is still trying to complete their mission. With his chain of command broken and Point Man calling his own shots, where will his allegiance

Story

Nine months ago, Point Man and his F.E.A.R. squad were tapped to stop a telepathically gifted cannibal who had begun a murderous rampage. Point Man learned the target was his brother, Paxton Fettel, working alongside their tortured and psychically powerful mother, Alma Wade. Despite this revelation, Point Man followed orders to destroy them and subsequently ravaged the surrounding city and most of his F.E.A.R. team. Now, it is clear that Alma's psychic influence survived - and worse, she is about to birth something that could destroy the world. Fettel has returned from death with an unclear agenda, refusing to leave Point Man's side and asking for help to reach Alma. The remaining F.E.A.R. Squad is still trying to complete their mission. With his chain of command broken and Point Man calling his own shots, where will his allegiance lie.

Gameplay

As with the previous two releases in the F.E.A.R. Franchise, F.E.A.R. 3 is a FPS with Horror gameplay. Players experience action both from perspective of Paxton Fettel - resurrected from the headshot he received in the previous game - and his brother Point Man, who was the trigger man. Since Fettel was indeed killed in the earlier encounter, his presence in the game is almost ghostlike, with he relying on a devastating range of telekinetic powers, including the ability to possess the bodies of the living in order to perform certain physical tasks. Point Man on the other hand is quite corporal and is a super soldier with expertise in a wide range of weaponry. He also has loyalties to the A.I. F.E.A.R. operatives that populate the game. The problem with this is that the operative's goal is to eliminate the growing power of Alma, the mother of both Point Man and Paxton Fettel. Because of this layers will face choices that will pit duty against family loyalties. Both characters have access to mech units encountered throughout the game.

F.E.A.R. 3 also features an impressive range of multiplayer options. The first of these is a co-op mode that allows one player to take on the powers of Fettel, while the other assumes those of Point Man as they work together during an uneasy truce. An additional multiplayer mode is available that tests your ability to work together under stress and constant fire to get your squad from point A to point B as a unit.

3.0 out of 5 stars No fear this time around 17 Oct. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The third instalment of the Fear series released on this generation of consoles and it appears that the game has rediscovered a small percentage of the magic that made the first game a classic in my opinion.
The premise is the same as the previous games - shoot loads of bad guys and monsters while on your way to see Alma. Nothing new here then for fans of the previous games apart from the fact that the horror element has actually been turned up a notch from the second game which for all intense purposes lost the horror in the FPS horror genre label associated with the first game.
As a horror title it is still lacking but there are a few moments which will send a cold shiver down your back rather than make you jump out of your seat.
The FPS aspect of the game is fairly solid and although it will not win any awards for originality at least it does the job that it sets out to which is supplying a high amount of carnage with a paltry selection of weapons.
Graphically and sonically Fear 3 is fairly solid with some fairly impressive lighting effects and of course the sound effects add a lot to making the few horror moments stand out.
Unfortunately though due to the fact that the horror element is so limited and the fps aspect of the game is soo generic means that this is probably a game for fans of the series only. However, it is quite a harmless shoot em up which will be completed fairly quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing 8 Jan. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
I have been a great fan of F.E.A.R eversince I played FEAR 2 on PS3 and that's when I decided to play FEAR 1 as most people were saying that FEAR 1 was the best of the series.. and they were RIGHT!!. But still, I enjoyed FEAR 2 (I completed it on PC and PS3). Having completed FEAR 3, I can rate it as follows:
Story: 2/5 (Linear, short, no twists or progression)
Graphics: 5/5 (Outstanding)
Gameplay: 3/5 (Same as before but slightly changed)
Horror/Fear element: 2/5
Overall: 3/5
The game is so predictable, linear story unlike FEAR 1; they rushed with releasing this one.. No more log/phonecalls/messages to listen to. No characters or team mates that you can relate to (unlike FEAR 1); and its definitely not a horror game anymore.. doesn't feel like the original FEAR. The only thing that might be new and good about it is probably playing the game with Fettel character but I wonder if I can play it again! its mainly just a shooter em all game now. I loved FEAR for the PC to be honest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fear 3 review ps3 2 July 2012
By alan
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is very interesting. The gamplay is as you would expect and the fear "scary" atmosphere lives on. Took around 5 hours to complete which is disappointing. I did enjoy this game until the very ending scene. Not to spoil anything but be prepared for a disappointing ending; The creators of F.E.A.R could have rounded off the game very well - But because the franchise is not interested in good reviews it puts in a crappy "cliff hanger" in the plot to set the scene for another game. The on-line features are a bit of a laugh but don't expect to be able to find a host for the games. To conclude: Good play, Crap ending, okay online features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to FEAR 9 April 2015
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
The least scary and most accessible of the FEAR games. I personally really enjoyed it and have played it through a couple of times now. Once on my own and once in co-op. Co-op works great with both characters complimenting each other if you work together, but at the same time they have enough unique ways to kill that you can both just do your own thing and get by fine. So if you have a less experienced co-op buddy you should be fine.

It does stray from the FEAR formula a lot. It is an FPS with horror elements but that is pretty much where the similarities end. Because of this you might feel a bit cheated if you loved the previous games but what you are left with is a solid, arcadey shooter with a silly but fun story and an abrupt end. Both characters are fun to play and it still feels good shooting arms and legs off with a shotgun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never face F.3.A.R. alone! 8 Sept. 2011
By Miguez
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a fan of FPS's and Survival Horror's, I'm also a fan of F.E.A.R. franchise. I've waited a long time for this third part of the franchise, mostly because the possibility of playing with the "ghost" version of Paxton Fettel, but I will get to that later.
Visualy, nothing new in the graphics, looking a bit out dated actually, but continues to deliver the signature atmosphere of the F.E.A.R. series and the cutscenes are awesome.
In the gameplay as a FPS, it delivers what you expect from a FPS having a great cover system, but it's while playing as Fettel that some "news" are added to the experience since being a "ghost" you can't pick guns but you can possess enemies and use their guns and then explode them from the inside, suspend enemies in the air and throw a "paranormal" (or whatever) projectile. The core of F.E.A.R. series is the scary moments, and they're still present in F.3.A.R., not as good as F.E.A.R. 1/2, but it still had moments that made me jump!
The sound in F.3.A.R. is very good with very good sound effects and the voice of Paxton Fettel is AWESOME!

You have the possibillity of experience all of this in Co-Op, and if you finish the game with the same person, you will have a good surprise in the end.
I hadn't the chance of trying F.3.A.R.'s multiplayer since the online features code doesn't work and I'm still waiting for WB to give me a new one since I bought a brand new version of the product.

Overall, F.3.A.R. is a good game that fits well on the franchise, but if you're looking for a pure FPS it's not the best choice.
