About the Product

  • Never Face Fear Alone: F.E.A.R. 3 evolves the brand, introducing Divergent Co-op: deep, social gameplay that gives players distinctly different abilities that affect their own play as well as the experience of gamers they are playing with or against.
  • Frenetic Combat: Active 360 degree cover, evolutionary slow-mo modes, scoring systems and best in class mech- combat aid players in facing an army of soldiers and paranormal enemies.
  • Experience the Almaverse: The game world is tainted by the Almaverse, the alternate dimension where Almas psychic essence subsists. Sinister and fantastical enemy creatures birthed in Almas warped mind spill into reality and intensify the panic.
  • Generative System: Proprietary technology creates random events to increase the feeling of isolation and unpredictability when playing alone or with a friend, and offers new experiences each time gamers play through.
  • Legendary film director John Carpenter and writer Steve Niles provide their expertise and guidance to take F.E.A.R. 3s intensity to the next level. Niles co-wrote the storyline of the main characters, and Carpenter helped craft the cinematics.

FEAR3 is a fun FPS game. The game settings, play and graphics are all solid and of good quality, but i find some repetition and same ol' same ol' found in almost all FPS's of today. I can discuss these parts here:


Install was smooth. This game registers with STEAM and only thing to note here is for some reason the game defaulted my resolution to 1600x900..not sure why since i'm on a 1600x1050 screen. Also, when entering cd key, the insert has 15 characters but steam prompt for cd key showed boxes for 20 characters? I just hit and enter and it authenticated, leaving the rest of the keys empty.

Game settings:

The game uses the usual WSAD, but adds some additional features of ducking into cover by pressing Q. While in cover, you have options to press W to peek above cover and fire, A or D to peek around to the left or right and fire, and spacebar will slide you to another cover area. Nifty, but kind of kludgy because you sometimes feel like you're stuck, but its because you're in cover..

Gamp play:

FPS at its heart, the game has been run of the mill, open doors, enter room, shoot everything, get to other side of room. The AI is ok, they're dumb and smart, where they are constantly outflanking you and forever shooting their guns (what they have unlimited ammo?). They will shoot at you no matter what is between you and them, so you get some dumb instances of AI standing behind partial walls just firing away.

You only get 2 weapon slots. I've only ran across SMG, Shotgun, Sniper and a Rocket Launcher. Maybe there's more, but haven't gotten there. Ammo is somewhat of an issue, always running out, and trying to snipe is not too viable option, since it only hold 10 bullets total, you'll use it and toss it.

Let's get this out of the way right off the bat: FEAR is one of my favorite games of all time. It's insanely fun and fast-paced shooting, it's marvelous AI, it's extremely impressive graphics and combat effects (many of which are still unrivaled) and it being one of the last true PC singleplayer shooters all put it on a pedestal in my mind. If you disagree with that we are coming into this review from different directions, yet I still think you should listen to what I am going to say. Why? Because FEAR 3 is absolutely NOTHING like FEAR, yet I still love it.

FEAR 3's singleplayer campaign puts you in the shoes of Pointman from the original game, tasked with finding Alma and stopping her pregnancy that we learned about in FEAR 2. The story is rather bland and typical, but FEAR was never about a strong story really. It was more about strong moments, interactive scares and revelations that happened dynamically as you played the game. FEAR 3 is not as good at this, a clear example of how the change in developer (from Monolith to Day 1 Studios) has effected the game. Atmosphere has changed as well, and maybe for the better depending on your priorities. While FEAR and for the most part FEAR 2 were about dark and moody environments FEAR 3 has a little of that but mostly takes place in brightly lit outside environments with a standard military shooter feel. There is a South American village during the day, a suburb at dusk, a sunny daytime city level (the longest in the game) and more like this. Only a creepy department store level and some parts at the end really felt like traditional FEAR environments to me.

FEAR's main focus is on gameplay though, and the changes keep on coming. FEAR 3 feels much more like a standard military shooter when you play as Pointman.

One thing is for certain about the F.E.A.R. franchise, you never know what's coming next. Whether or not you loved or loathed F.E.A.R. 2 it is almost impossible to say that the next is just like the last, and F.E.A.R. 3 is no exception. Many were thinking that this would be a dud due to lack of press and hype usually given to sequels these days, but this is certainly not the case.

As much as many of us wanted this to be the same as Fear 1 it most certainly is not, and why should it be? We were already given Fear 1 if that's what you want then go play it! Instead we are treated to more of a true sequel to the first and all the scary, creepy, bloody fun that we expected from Fear 2 but didn't quite receive.

The first F.E.A.R. game pushed the limits of PC gaming hardware at the time and found a way to scare itself into our blackened, desensitized little hearts. Fear 3, while not the most cutting edge graphic wise is sure to make you jump back a few times with plenty of (WTF!) moments. F.E.A.R. was one of the few games that were able to grab my attention in first few minutes; this is how I normally know when a game is great or just passable. I download F.E.A.R. 3 from Steam right at Midnight; the game took only 30 minutes to download on a 30 mbps connection pulling 3.1 Mbps. I decided to give it a quick run through before I went to bed at about 12:35 and ended up turning it off at about 7:00 AM

In the single player campaign you start as Point Man the (first games protagonist), you and your brother Paxton Fattel (the original antagonist) are sitting in a holding cell inside an asylum overseen by Armacham. You spend the first level breaking out of the asylum fighting through hordes of solders and Break your way into the underground sewers.
