You aren't a soldier. You are a weapon.
A mysterious paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, taking hostages but issuing no demands. A Special Forces team is sent in by the government tp contain the situation, but contact is severed as an eerie signal interrupts radio communications. When the interference subsides moments later, the team has been obliterated. Live footage of the massacre shows an inexplicable wave of destruction tearing the soldiers apart before they can even react.
In light of the desperate situation the F.E.A.R. team is assembled. As part of this elite classified strike force created to deal with the most unusual and shocking of threats, your mission is simple: Eliminate the intruders at any cost. Determine the origin of the signal and contain this crisis before it spirals out of control.

1) Your character starts of slow and speeds up through the game - be patient and you will be rewarded
2) The AI enemies are so much more inteligent ( they use grenades well and dive for cover ) than those in Resistance FOM
3) Play this in the dark with 5.1 sounds turned up and you will be afraid of the dark
4) The bullet time feature is so very very cool - use it wisely
5) The gore and blood sets the story well
Resistance FOM is great to play for 15 / 30 min bursts - FEAR takes some time to get into
In a few places, the gameplay seems to slow down a bit and start to judder. I haven't noticed a pattern, but it doesn't seem to be when there are lots of bots around or when there is a lot going on visually. So, it doesn't seem to be an issue with the hardware not coping, but probably just something that didn't go quite right with the porting. It's not a big issue and doesn't spoil the game, but it does lose a star from my rating.
Painful load times and jagged textures don't create the fear. It would be completely unreasonable to expect this to compete with more recent games, but I certainly thought (at the very least) it would compete with the original.
The HD makeover gives a very smeared impression, similar to upscaling PS2 games. Lighting is fairly moody. The game is set almost exclusively in office environments, the term corrider shooter was invented for this. Levels are realistic in their design, but repetition does set in. This makes it easy to get lost or travel repeatedly in circles.
Combat has always been one of F.E.A.R's stronger aspects. The Slow-Mo feature is shamelessly lifted from Max Payne, but works exceptionally in a 1st person viewpoint. The Shotgun is also one of the most brutal in any game, tearing bodies in half with ease.
Stomach this shoddy conversion, and theres still plenty to enjoy from F.E.A.R. Otherwise, play it on the PC, or even the 360.
A flawed classic, on PS3 its just flawed.
On the plus side, if you're a horror fan and love being scared then you'll probably enjoy this. The atmosphere the music and darkness create is immense, i don't play it in the dark!!
