Fear ah...how much I loved you, the others not so much. It seems the more that Fear tries to scare you, the less it manages to achieve and yet it fits comfortably in the first person shooter space. Fear 3 is the latest in the paranormal shooter series and well, it’s supposed to be the last. It is however certainly a big step away from the first Fear and in some ways, it’s good.
A caveat though, if you are a fan of Fear...then you might consider this one a heavy departure from the twisted/scary Alma that you know and love. There’s no real subtle horror in this one...and that somewhat brings the series further away from the storytelling quality and psychological effects that it brought to the table with the first game.
