    Enter the F.E.A.R. 3

    The first F.E.A.R. was an outstanding masterpiece. The two following expansion packs were so so. F.E.A.R. 2 was great in my opinion. The game had a crappy story although the pacing of the game was good, it also featured... Read Full Review

    A pure FPS, nothing new here...

    I loved the FEAR series and I loved the suspense and everything that goes with it. I loved shooting all those soldiers and fighting through the dark corridors of those twisted office buildings. I can say that I liked thi... Read Full Review

    Really Why?

    I don't get the point of making this game? The F.E.A.R. games which I know are scary, mysterious and has a great storyline. All the previous games has used those three basic elements and this new squeal not just lacks in... Read Full Review

    Best played with a friend, F.E.A.R 3 is pretty basic - but it reminds us that shooters can still be plain ol' fun.

    The storyline is fairly absurd and the scares aren't scary - but F.E.A.R 3's gameplay takes us back to an age when shooters were fun. In co-op mode, one player takes control of the Pointman, F.E.A.R's silent protagonist,... Read Full Review

    Not scary at all, but it's a spectacular, adrenaline pumping carnage.

    This game is heavily consolized in every aspect, from a gamepad adjusted combat mechanics, to low rez textures. And it lacks logs to read, which really is quite a disappointment for me. However, it has best shoot outs i... Read Full Review

    I can say with certainty this is the first game I've played in quite a while that had absolutely no glitches in it.

    I loved the first Fear title. I found the storyline to be rich and intriguing with some really good gameplay mechanics. The second Fear title I found to be a quick throw together, the kind of title that's likely develo... Read Full Review

    Instant classic

    Personally I thought this was a pretty fun game. Admittedly, the scare factor and storyline were lacking but so what? Its still fun to play. As you would expect from a fear game the gunplay is excellent and there is... Read Full Review

    O Please!!!

    SPOILERS>>>>>>(Not that you would care......) At first it seamed similar to part 2. It started to get pretty repetitive a a few hours in. Fight your way out of prison. A prison that for some unexplained reason bega... Read Full Review

    What a week! first Duke Nukem Forever, now this. Fear 3; a letdown in so many ways.

    I wasn't really surprised when Duke NukenForever turned out to be a pre-order dud. What the heck, I paid just to verify that the game had in fact been finished. So how about Fear 3? Fear and Fear 2 were pioneering in th... Read Full Review

    more than obvious console port...... but still a F.E.A.R game at its core.

    The horrible console port is even worse than fear 2. That aside the game does well with the way it upgrades you. It streamlined an already simple system to gain health etc. Normally I hate when they streamline upgrade ... Read Full Review
