F.E.A.R. : First Encounter Assault Recon
are you scared cause i am
i have had this game for at least 6 months now and this is freaking awesome. its a mix of horror and sci-fi sort of. this game is really good for some one interested in a little scare and to get your blood going. buy this game and embrace the FEAR
I actually had nightmares...
This game is a true scary, fun, and exciting game. Noticing the enemy just staring at me scaring the heck out of me, walking randomly then the enemy just pops out of no where, Alma of all people showing up in elevators and in random places. Even though the gameplay from jumping to one office building to another, that is the main point of the game from the storyline. finding people left and right. This game is really good if your sitting in your room in the dark and its quiet. In FEAR 2, there is more of the storyline built into that one. The graphics in this FEAR are alright compared to the time this game was made. This is a great first person shooter, but i find the online gaming not so great. I think actually that the online gaming takes the actual storyline. Kinda like Fallout 3 where its not multiplayer which made it stick to the actual game and storyline, and the same with this game. Since i have been playing this, I only went online once and ran into plenty of people, but i find just playing the campaign mode a better thing to do because i like the gaming and storyline. Overall..this is a great scary game to play, even more on FEAR 2. Also this game does take a while to beat on the campaign. On the lowest level, its pretty easy but it does not go by quickly. On the high difficulty, it does take forever since the checkpoints are not as close. It is a good thing that this game takes a while to pass, since its not as quick to everyone or like the game MW2 (lol)..
Going to play through it again...
I purchased this game when it first came out, and loved it. Back then it was rare to find a FPS in the horror genre, and what I originally loved about the game was its gore and sense of suspense mixed with the slow-motion feature. (NOTE: If you hit the enemy just right with the shotgun, they'll explode into liquid slop.) Lately I haven't seen any games floating around that would be worth the cash, so I decided to buy this game (after trading it in years ago), and I'm really looking forward to playing it again. Its nothing like COD, meaning you'll probably play the campaign all the way through once and move onto to another game. However, if you enjoyed it the first time, a little while down the road you'll feel like taking another crack at it. The graphics are decent for when it was made, and the sound is awesome. Also, if jumpy, creepy little ghost-type girls weird you out - you might find this disturbing at the least. It scared the heck out of me a few times, but then I sort of got used to it. Also, the storyline is GREAT. One of the BEST i've seen in a FPS.
I just got this game today and wow it's affects are amazing and the story is strange but great.One problem though the controls are weird i mean like using the bumpbers on the controller to change wepons is weird.That and how you can't zoom in completly with your gun is my only complaint.It' a great game for the price and is somtimes a little bit of challange and actully kinda scared me in some parts of the story.The sound is the best i've heard in a while when you play this game you have crank up the volume and turn out the lights for the best experince. At the begining the story line is a little hard to understand but aventully turns out to make more sense.Over all this is an amazing game and i really recramend it if your a fan of horror action/shooting games.
OK not great
The game starts off slow and scary to some degree. You are a solider in a squad called F.E.A.R. your fairly new. You then are sent on your first mission with no idea of what to do. Things then fall off shelfs and you tend to get scared then every once and a while a picture of dead men will come up on screen for a short period. By the 3 level the game is no londer scary just a lot of blood and action. This game is an ok First-Person Shooter and will tend to give you chills up your back so get the game and play it for your self. The story is slow at first but then you start to figure it out in the 3 or 4 level. The HUB is very bad all you see is ammo and your hands holding the gun no map no compass so you will go around in circles a few times trying to find your way to the next level. the Multiplayer is ok but no one really plays it so finding a match will take forever.
An aged game with a okay atmosphere.
Like the title says an aged game graphic and gameplay wise the graphics were average for it's time due to this being a 2006 port of an 2005 game. Also, the gameplay has slo-motion effects often which isn't ground breaking, but it does help take out most enemies. The AI tend to be pretty smart which makes the game a little longer a bonus if you like the game that is. The sound and atmosphere were the real highlights of the game which made for some nice "jump scares", however this is not a horror game it is a fps with some pyschological horror elements added to the game from time to time. Which is going to turn many people off if that is why they want this game. Overall an average game that could of been better, but could of been worst too.
Never F.E.A.R., it's a great game!
I love this game. A lot! I recently picked it up because I'm interested in the upcoming F.E.A.R. 2: Project origin and I thought I would brush up on the storyline before February when Origin hits the shelves. I'm seriously happy that I picked this one up. As a fan of both first person shooters and horror it's always awesome when a game mixes the two and deos it right. This game is full of fantastic scare moments and of moments that make a first person shooter great. The game, being a few years old, is definately showing it's age, but even still it looks very very good, definately nothing bad about it. Good use of light and shadow, along with some killer audio and creepy background noises, does a good job of creating a tense atmoshpere and a few moments that will make your heart stick in your throat. Check er out, this one is excellent.
GAME F.E.A.R first encounter
YA hey this is one of the best FPS out there! one thing they should update the page because they are selling it used for more than new just to let u know. back to the game. great story line nice controls could play it all day (mabye not at night lol kinda creepy) *(sometimes) if u have surround sound or a stereo to hook it up to its austum and if u do buy the game the Challenge is amazing! but the one thing that kept killing me was the jumping zombies lol they come out of no where buti just couldnt kill them.... so i had to get away it was glitched or somethin idk but tht was just my problem other than that the games amazin i will totally recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a freaky but good FPS soo YAA go out and buy it i hope to see someone on even though i may sell the game to get the mew one FEAR 2
This is really something! The translation of first person shooter ports have gotten so much better than they used to be. Originally a PC game, this one plays extremely well for the xbox 360 and is a whole lot of fun to play on a big screen. The controls themselves are tight and responsive and the aiming is nice and precise. The game play features are great fun. Some would say that slow motion (or bullet time) are over used these days, but I've rarely played a game that makes it so visceral and satisfying as this game does. So, how does a game called F.E.A.R. stack up on the scare meter? Not bad! Not bad at all! This old time horror fan had quite a few moments when he jumped out of his seat, heart pounding and adrenaline flowing HARD! Great game, I recommend this one strongly for fps and horror fans alike.
This is one of the best shooter games I've ever played, i started playing this game and fell in love with it. I played it every day nonstop. The graphics are extremely realistic. the control were easy to use. The best thing about the game are the weapons there are more than 10 weapons to use and all of them are incredible. I enjoyed all the blood and the horror this game had. This is the creepiest game i have ever experienced. The game is really intense. You wont regret buying this enjoyable game, the game wont let you do anything else its that fun. Anybody that likes shooting games you have lots of fun playing F.E.A.R. I Think this game is way better and than halo 3. The game is inexpensive, i recommend this game for any gamer that likes fun,enjoyable,scary,and shooting games.
