F.E.A.R. 3 Preview (Hooked Gamers)

Released in 2005, F.E.A.R. was a critically acclaimed first person shooter from Monolith Studios. Tackling an angle rarely seen within its genre, Monolith’s horror-themed shooter carried an atmosphere and character that makes it memorable to this day. With a dedicated fan base, two expansions, and a sequel; developer Day 1 Studios takes hold of the reigns for F.E.A.R. 3 and hopes to make a great game even better. Awesome new features and heavy hitters like John Carpenter and Steve Niles are joining F.E.A.R. 3 to make this the most ghoulish game in the series yet.

I guess it would be if you are able to find it cheap. Try the original though if you haven't already of course ;)

stevenhiggster2770d ago

I certainly enjoyed it so I would say yes.
Dunno about fear 3 though, I mean how can it possibly be scary with co-op?

kramun2770d ago

Yeah it's worth getting although I think the original is superior. I'm hoping the third is a return to form for the series.


Yea,Fear2 is ok.
It is a little clunky but it plays decently enough.If you can get it for under 20$ then you haven't been robbed.I think it has or had mp,I never tried the online tho,doubt the servers are still up but i'm not entirely sure.

Servers are still up. The Xbox 360 version of the game has literally no players -- just the occasional Achievement-boosting-lobby.

Not sure about the PC, if players aren't on F.E.A.R 2, they're probably on F.E.A.R Combat.

I just played FEAR 2 on PC yesterday and there are still a lot of people, and the good thing is that almost all the modes are played

My favorite: Armored Assault

Scaryy Hide-time.

If Kojima was playing, he would of course say "Hideo time!"...

*REALLY* excited for this.

I picked up both games for under a fiver, following great reviews on Classic Game Room.

The first one, despite showing it's age - and the lead character seemingly walking with a built-up shoe], was *superb* fun. Some really great set pieces in there and I certainly got my £5's worth.

The sequel is a world prettier, but somehow not quite as great as the original. Still a really treat to play, mind.

Considering the price you can get both 1, 2 & Fear Files for - a great excuse for some budget gaming.

[With huge thanks to Mark from Classic Game Room for the head up]

This game isn't scary as the first one. I might get it, but sure it won't be the same thing
