Back in 2005, Monolith Games, a studio known for it's atmospheric and creepy first person shooters, released what many consider to be it's magnum opus,F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon). It was and still is one of the best first person shooters of our time, with great graphics, atmosphere, and gameplay. It received numerous accolades and praise from critics and players alike. 4 years later, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin was released, with similar expectations. This time, however, the critical and player reception was far more divided. Nevertheless, it was still considered an enjoyable first person shooter. Now, in 2011, the F.E.A.R. license has passed over to Day 1 Studios, the company behind games such as Fracture and MechAssault 2. It's also worth mentioning that they were responsible for the ports of the original F.E.A.R. to consoles. With Day 1 Studios creating F.E.A.R. 3, there's definitely some differences between previous F.E.A.R. games and F.E.A.R. 3.
