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.

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.

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.
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.
Picking up some months after the end of FEAR 2. "F.3.A.R"(Guuuuuh!) begins with you in control of the first FEAR game's central character, the always silent 'Pointman', as he breaks out of a prison under the control of soldiers working for bad guys Pharmacam. Helping Pointman is original FEAR central bad guy and Pointman's brother Paxton Fettel, a 'Psychic ghost' of sorts who has the ability to possess the living who follows Pointman throughout the game, serving as a second controllable character for the campaign's co-op mode. Outside of co-op though, you only see Fettel during cutscenes, or you can unlock him to use in single player after finishing each level as Pointman. Anyway... the two of them escape and decide to go and find their mother Alma, the super powerful psychic psychotic little girl/haggard naked woman from the first two games who continues to randomly pop up throughout levels just to go 'BOO' at you as before. Also, Alma is heavily pregnant after raping the main character in the second game... and the world is seemingly tearing itself apart in the build up to her giving birth. It's an odd plot, and not necessarily a good one.Read more ›
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
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.
