"FEAR was a mighty popular game with the PC crowd, and even the Xbox 360 audience, albeit to a lesser extent. So when the PlayStation 3 game arrived, it came at a time when most of the PS3's ports were the videogame equivalent of a baby born to an incestuous family. The same way you just shuddered after reading it, is the same way we all shuddered when we had to endure these terrible ports. But the interesting thing about FEAR is that beyond the scare tactics, it wasn't a terribly good game when compared to other first person shooters. It was way too linear, and claustrophobic, never giving the player a sense of freedom. Well, there's a sequel on the way, and it looks to take care some of those issues."
