Today the FPS genre is densely populated and most shooters usually revolve around stopping alien invasions or joining the army to fight off terrorists and crazy dictators, so picking up F.E.A.R. 3 felt like a fresh breath of air as it mixes familiar gameplay mechanics with its trademark paranormal horror. Sure it borrows some elements from industry heavy-hitters but the game still manages to create a unique feel and atmosphere that will keep players on their toes."
