One of the most action packed games of the year
Fear 3 is clearly one of the most frightening and action packed games of 2011, it has it all. One of the best of Fear series.
An Uneasy Flow for Gamers
F.E.A.R. 3 is not really that scary. Some people even say that F.E.A.R. 1 and 2 were even more scary than this game. As my topic says above, 'An Uneasy Flow for Gamers' what I'm trying to say is that it's too jumpy. The storyline has no cache to it, sure it's about two brothers who were humiliated for many years by a man who wanted them to be his "legacy", but it their seems to be no cache. What was their personal story? How did they end up in the hands of a psychisist? And how are they genetically built to alter the world and people around them? This game also jumps from one scene to another in a strange order, from villages to stores to airports, that all leads back to the start of their life, an old mansion estate where underground lies who knows what. However this game isn't all that bad. The graphics were good, although it's too cheesy, the sound is good, and I like the power to possess people, levitate, stun people, and slow time. So I'd reccommend this game to those who like scary games.
It looks really good
I can't wait it looks great. I'll get it for Xbox being that the game play is better for shooters on 360. as Far as graphics Uncharted/GOW kill Heavy rain. The Xbox could play Heavy Rain easily (from a graphics standpoint). the difference is that the CPU is not as powerful as the Ps3 and kills the 360 processing therefore game play might not be as fluid. The GPU (Graphics Chip) smokes the PS3 however, so games look sharper and more detailed on the XBOX like it or not. This is a fact and if you have both systems do the comparison your self. Each machine has something great to offer. I judge by the quality games that are out and exclusives. And as I see it Ps3 has a little catching up to do, but they are on the right track with GOW, Uncharted 2 & Killzone, Resistance. ( Wish Killzone played smoother cause it looks like a dream and makes HALO look like a cartoon). But with Gears 3, Halo Reach, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake just to name a few, Sony needs to continute to step their game up.
F.3.A.R is pretty good!
Having played the game for a couple days, I can say so far I am enjoying it. I finished through the campaign on co-op and it felt to me to be a decent length for its type of game. The multiplayer caught me, however. Contractions seems to be the most popular, as its usually easy to find someone playing. Its sort of like zombies, only there are military units that actually shoot back included. As you play through multiplayer and multiplayer co-op, you gain exp, and it makes you stronger in the campaign section of the game, which gives a bit of help when trying to beat F.3.A.R. on the harder modes. I have run into a few connection issues however, and sometimes the game may freeze during loading while actually in game. It does not happen often, though, maybe one or two times out of maybe seven games. Very frustrating when you actually get a team together that actually plays very well. All in all, the game is decent enough for me to give it an 8/10.
Was a fan of the series...until now.
This game has major flaws that I wanted to overlook but the magnitude of them made that impossible. First of all the fps will slow to an obviously slow level visually. I am fine with using bullet time and slowing the game on purpose but in this day fps should not be an issue when playing any shooter at regular speed. Game play is repetitive with the same enemies and the same guns over and over and over. Bosses are either far too easy and predictable or almost invincible with massive damage resistance. Each level feels just like the last but they just changed the textures to look different. The scary aspects that made the old F.E.A.R. games great is now gone. Wow you made a monster pop out of a spot that it was obviously going to pop out of....so sad. Controls are ok but other shooters controls are much better and more intuitive feeling. Feels like a cheap F.E.A.R. 2.5 rather that F.E.A.R. 3. This game is so this pathetic the only 3 this game gets a 3 out of 10.
I've played FEAR 1 and 2 both great games. I have to admit when I started FEAR1 I wasn't to sure of it. As I kept playing I was impressed by the story and horror of the game. The graphics aren't great however it didn't bother me because the story was great. I thought the ending in the first Fear was awesome. I bought both games at the same time so I popped FEAR2 in as soon as I finished the first one. The graphics on 2 are better and the story started right where the first ended. I have to say I was a bit confused by the story on the second, I don't know if its because Warner Bros was involved or if Its just me. The scare factor is even better, there were times I wanted to get through a level because I was literally freaked out. I was confused with the ending so I bought FEAR2 REBORN hoping to answer some questions. However I feel I'm becoming more confused. The game is worth the time. I played it on a normal setting and it was perfect, not to hard and not to easy. Both games took about 10 hours each maybe more. I can't wait for FEAR3, I'm a fan of F.E.A.R
Never Face F3AR Alone!!
Fear 3 is awsome Love the co-op yu can play with your friends doing the storymode together which is very fun..The Mutiplayer Modes like This is Suicide,Mother Dark Nature,Street cleaning nd others are so much fun that you have to play to Understand how much fun it is and if you are looking for a real scary then this isnt the game for you its more like a suvivor with horror elements although there is parts in the campaign thet will have you jumping lol.. Overall this is a very fun game that brings sumthn new to the table #AddictiveGame
People are so concern about the game graphics, games should be decided on how fun they are, not how they look ;D
F3 proves a disappointment
I was fairly disappointed with F3. The previous installment, Fear 2, was a solid game. I expected this next installment to have some new juice to it. The storyline and dialogue is very dull. I don't believe the scary girl, Alma, is incorporated into F3 as well as the past two Fear titles. If you can find this game at a bargain price, I suppose it is worth checking out.
Paxton Fellel great villan
Alma is looking as lovely as ever. Having played F.E.A.R. 1 & 2 (and F.E.A.R. files) I'm interested to see where they are going to go with 3. Paxton Fellel is one of the best villan's ever -- ya just gotta respect a man with such dedication to the mission that even death doesn't stop him. I'm curious about one previous comment that said that the first game didn't have a story...?? I thought the story was obvious; granted it wasn't story-telling as in a rpg but for a survival/horror/shooter the story was what drove the gameplay. Alma was the powerful psychic child of a scientist/doctor that worked for the military complex. In his obsession with creating a 'super soldier' he allowed his daughter to be studied, tested and finally impregnated multiple times. Alma became so crazed by this she was kept in a drug induced coma. When she unexpectedly awakes during the birth of of one of her sons; she becomes so enraged by her situation and loss of her baby that she wreaks mayhem on everything around her and has to be placed in a stasis and 'buried' in an underground facility. In the first game you play as Point Man a rather adept soldier whose background and powers are revealed as you play the game. Now, with co-op the player can play as Paxton Fellel or Point Man. As the mother of two daughters I am rooting for Alma.
