Wow I remember when I first installed and played both Fear 1 and Fear 2, it pushed my computer to the extreme and awed me with it's graphics and sound. I remember loving every minute of the games and re-playing them several times over! Well don't expect the same when you install Fear 3. In fact don't expect really much.
Let's start with the sub-par graphics. I was able to play the game on maximum settings and it was nothing anywhere near impressive. The graphics were severely out-dated and were pathetic. Clearly this game was designed to be console compatible and so all the visual details that made this franchise a PC success were thrown to the wayside.
The sound was nothing new. There was the occasional cheesy howl or groan that apparently was supposed to be frightening, but actually made me laugh. Lame voice overs and repetitive music were the choice of the developers in this one. Once again, all of these effects were clearly made for a younger console crowd.
Lastly the re-playability. Yea, it doesn't exist. I read some crummy reviews prior to purchasing this game and they relayed how you can replay as another character, etc. Sure you can do that.. but on the same boring maps with the same boring out comes. The storyline is all over the place and nothing flowed coherently AT ALL. After I finished the game I deleted it and have no plans whatsoever to ever touch it again. I can't believe I paid full price for this garbage game and no wonder the price has plummeted so much and so quickly. Hardcore PC Gamers stay away FAR AWAY from this title! Leave it to the console kiddies! The Fear franchise is officially dead!
