5.0 out of 5 stars Decent FPS, 12 Mar 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: F.E.A.R. (PC CD) (Video Game)
Fear is a game that can effectively combine Intense action scenes with creepy horror scenes. First off The character you play in fear can only carry 3 weapons at a time, which is more realistic as some FPS games allow you to carry a ridiculous amount of weapons. There are a variety of weapons through out the game with some nice exotic weapons to use like a rocket launcher. However as the limit on weapons is three at a time a weapon will have to be dropped in favour of another.
Enemy encounters happen regularly through out the game and the AI is very good in Fear. Defeating enemy soldiers can be a real challenge at times, but Fear includes a nice feature that allows temporary slow motion, which for a short time will put a battle in the players favour. However to use this feature again the reflex bar will have to recharge. The soldiers sometimes come aided with what they call ‘The Heavy’ it’s a robotic soldier and can inflict a lot of damage, so its best not to expose yourself to much. There are a host of other things through out the game that are going to try and kill you.
Now for the horror side of Fear and its brilliant. Throughout the game the lights will flicker and you’ll find your self in nightmarish type of scene. The makers of Fear have done these scenes really well with some outstanding Graphics effects making them the best creepy scenes I have ever seen in a FPS. There are also parts throughout Fear that made me Jump. If you like Horror then theres plenty of it here.
The Graphics effects in Fear are breathtaking better than anyother FPS in my opinion. It blends some decent lighting effects with realistic looking backgrounds. The chracters look well crafted and almost life like. The GFX in the battlescenes looks almost hollywood with some realistic Gun shot effects. Fear however does prefer a higher spec computer for those graphics to look at their best. I'm running the game on a Geforce 7800GT with almost all the settings maxed with no problems.
If you like FPS and horror then I can recommend Fear as a decent purchase.
