GameShark - Fear 3 is easily the best of the Fear games for one simple reason: it has a clear sense of its own identity. Monolith's earlier games consisted of an erratic blend of incoherent storytelling, pointless jump scares, and shooter playgrounds with good AI. But Fear 3, handed off from Monolith to Day 1 Studios, focuses on the three rules of making a good shooter: gunplay, gunplay, gunplay. The result isn't much of a story and it isn't very scary. Instead, it's just a shooter. A very good shooter.
