Cold Fear is basically "Resident Evil" set on a boat, with a sprinkling of "The Thing". You play as lifeguard Tom Hanson, who boards the ship after a mysterious disaster has befallen the crew, only to find the place overrun with mutated victims and weird creatures. It has great graphics and boasts a range of cool weapons and monsters, but there are some drawbacks, which I will get to shortly.
When I picked up a copy of this game I was intrigued by the idea of being on a storm lashed boat, and this aspect has certainly been well implemented. The stormy weather and raging sea effects look brilliant, and you can almost feel the wind throwing you off your feet as the boat rocks widly from side to side. Each time you are out on an open deck, this game really shines, and you'll need to be very careful not to get knocked off your feet, or worse still, overboard! As for action below deck, you'll still find that the scenery tilts constantly from side to side, although to a far lesser degree, so you'll never forget you are on a boat. The scenery of the whaler itself looks pretty realistic, which unfortunately makes for rather ugly backgrounds, as there is no let up from grimy cabins and corridors, with metal rivetts and girders everywhere. The action takes place in third person view from fixed viewpoints, but you can switch to an over the shoulder perspective at any time, which makes manouvering around far easier, as well as combat (you can engage in combat in the third person view if you want to, but I never did).Read more ›
Although most of the game & story is on the ship, dont think this is the only place you will be fighting on. You'll wind up on an oil rig where the entire story comes together.
Cold Fear utilizes a lot of the same game play mechanics that Resident Evil 4 used. You collect a small armory of weapons including a flame thrower, shotgun, MP5, etc. The aiming is works with the camera allowing you to see over your shoulder, so you can have the full effect on the aim. Although there is no jumping, you can run - and oh boy will you be running.
What seperates Cold Fear from Capcom's top selling game is that Cold Fear has a lot of enviromental hazards. Since you are on a ship in a very bad storm, the boat rocks which makes aiming hard. And adding to the whole ship rocking thing, waves can hit the boat and in turn hit you which will hurt you over even knock you off the frigate. On the oil rig you must watch for trip lasers, explosive barrels, and since it IS an oil rig - falling off the edge and into a watery grave.
There are a lot of enemies to fight ranging from armed paranoid Russians, Mutants/Zombies, parasites, and these monsters with big arms.Read more ›
It looks really cool though.The kinds of enemy you're up against make you need to "fight"
can't run on a waling ship.Cool ,like I said.
Cold Fear is a very good game, it is fun, scary at times but also frustrating at others but I have not played one that was not frustrating at one time or another (yep, all RE, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill, Clock Tower, Siren, etc have provided some frustrating moments). Still, isn't a bit of frustration also good for this kind of games, I do think so, why not? after all, you are playing a survival horror title where suspense, un-easiness, frustration, tension, etc, make it a better experience.
The controls are not the best but not the worst. Yes the game has no map and that was the main reason for frustration but you get used to after a while and learn to be more aware of the places you go, so after all, it is not that bad. Graphics and atmosphere are good. I cannot comment on sound cause I played it at EA during breaks while developing other video games and, event though you are allowed to do this (I mean play other video games while at work), I could not crank up the volume to really enjoy it so I decided to play it in complete silence.
Unfortunately the game was a bit short now that I think of it thought I didn't notice when I played it because I did over at least 3 weeks (did I mentioned I was at work?).
I gave it 4 stars cause it actually was fun for me. I was definitely not expecting to find the best survival horror game or a quantum leap in concept so I could not be very picky to start with.
If you are a fan of these type of games I definitely recomend it. Just don't expect to find the holly grail and take it for what it is: another fun game.
