Splitkick: Let me start with saying this; F.3.A.R. is not scary. It is not even remotely unsettling, but then again I did not come into the game thinking it would be. Though it has been shoved uncomfortably into the thriller/horror genre, solely on the merits of the original F.E.A.R., the first play through of the game would be better classified as a military shooter. This being said, the title has accomplished quite a bit as a shooter, especially after having to live down the failure of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
