    Short but solid, it can makes us remember how good FEAR is and why we had so much fun back there.

    One year after one of the greatest first person shooters ever made, its first expansion pack is released, fulfilling the promise that the original game left in the end of it. Extraction Point starts exactly where FEAR... Read Full Review
