Product Description

Nine months ago, Point Man and his F.E.A.R. squad were tapped to stop a telepathically gifted cannibal who had begun a murderous rampage. Point Man learned the target was his brother, Paxton Fettel, working alongside their tortured and psychically powerful mother, Alma Wade. 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. Now, it is clear that Alma's psychic influence survived- and worse, she is about to birth something that could destroy the world. Fettel has returned from death with an unclear agenda, refusing to leave Point Man's side and asking for help to reach Alma. The remaining F.E.A.R. squad is still trying to complete their mission. With his chain of command broken and Point Man calling his own shots, where will his allegiance lie?

Gameplay

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 AI 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.

I have to admit I'm a bit torn about the 3rd installment of FEAR, and I'm a big fan of the first two. I've just finished the single-player campaign as Point Man, but most of what I have to say will probably apply to co-op. I'll admit that I haven't played through as Fattel yet, so I concede that I have no idea what the game is like if you play as him.

On one hand, they've polished the gameplay to perfection. Character movement is smooth and feels natural, and target assist helps you spray bullets a little less than the first two required. The armored suit parts are fun (if a little short) and as with FEAR 2, help break up the pace. Creeping around enclosed environments is fun, but a good old fashioned blow everything up mech segment is a nice way to give yourself the occasional reset.

On the other hand, it's just not that interesting. You end up back in the city that got the "physic nuke" from Alma in the last game, and it's crawling with crazed people who've been whacked in the head by the Alma bomb. Sadly, unlike the interesting and weird soldiers and warped entities from the first two, the people in this one basically act like rabid zombies. So, most of the game feels like a mix of gunfights against conventional soldiers and a rabid axe-wielding zombie hunt. The weapons are less interesting, too, although the duel-wield, full-auto pistols are way cool and better than similar guns in any other game.

The scare factor goes way down, although unlike some critics, the Alma-pops-up-outta-nowhere-then-vanishes moments are always fun to me. But that's it. This isn't really creepy the way the first two were. And the enemy AI is almost TOO good. The level of difficulty is ramped way up, and you get mobbed by soldiers a lot more than before.

When I first heard last year that F.E.A.R. 3 was on the making I couldn't wait for its release. I got the game the day it came out. That day I didn't do anything but play F.E.A.R. 3 the whole day (it was my day off from work). This game has non-stop action. The cover system is really cool, reminded me of Killzone 2's cover system and also how the guns on the floor shine so you can spot them. I had a lot of fun playing the campaign. But the one thing I felt it missed was the "horror" part. There were some parts of the game were I felt jumpy, but not scared like the first F.E.A.R. game made me feel. I wish the game would've been scarier to the point were I would have to sleep with the lights on. Other than that, awesome game.

UPDATE: At first I hated this game. You see I am autistic as such many of the games more subtle cues I like totally miss. Unfortunately in FEAR 3 you really have to search the game world for weapons. Also in Fear 3 you can't just shoot everything that attacks you. In FEAR 3 it pays off big to Maylee some of the creatures you encounter. It is especially effective if you just beat the pig like gray to orange glowing creatures to death by stabbing them repeatedly. The ice blue dudes were hard to kill at first but eventually one gets a taste for it even a knack. I am not a man long on patience when it comes to video games. Honestly on Easy Mode I was able to win against the game in campaign mode and if was both difficult and fun for me once, I mastered an understanding of how the game wanted to be played.

FEAR 3 is a lot of fun but only if you adopt the playing style dictated by the game which makes the game less fun and more linear. FEAR 3 does do something I find painfully bad in any video game. I have found that when playing video games there are some weapons I love far more than others. Generally speaking give me a quick loading sniper rifle and no enemy is safe no matter where or how far away he is. When I am armed with a powerful sniper rifle with an equally powerful look down sight any enemy I see is living on barrowed time and I will collect their debt permanently.

With each installment of FEAR 3 the game just takes your favorite gums away and replaces them with the garbage guns the game wants you to have. Un a FPS there is no relationship more scared that that between a player and their favorite gun. What made matters worse is Fear 3 had one of the BEST Sniper Rifles I had ever been honored to use in any game.

Well for starters the story of the game isn't exactly something you'll be looking forward. Its more of the experience rather than a deep story. If you have played 1 and 2 well this will be easily caught in for you with the story. So you play again as point man from the first game and your brother comes back from the dead. The game features a new neat mechanic which is a cover system which I think a lot of other fps games should now include because this is something you may want on other games once you are done playing this game. For what its worth the game play is 7 hours long which is below average but that doesnt mean its bad. Its actually a pretty well good fps classic type with new additions. I won't spoil much of the story their is in this game i will talk more on the gameplay. The levels are pretty neat and the AI is actually pretty intelligent. There isn't a lot of weapons to pick but whatever they have is good enough for this game. Its worth getting for 15 and below which I believe that is how much its worth as of now.
