A tale of two developers and two plans.
I remember that the big issue was around Sierra as they had the name F.E.A.R. and Monolith had the characters. They went into the sequel not being able to use the name F.E.A.R. and thankfully reached and agreement in time to use it at launch but they were looking at continuing the series without the name while Sierra was going to be making new games with the title that were unrelated to the games Monolith were doing.
FEAR was so fun. I even enjoyed three even though it was a clear step-down, the multiplayer mode F*cking RUN! Had the best name and was fun. I would love a Remaster trilogy. This and Resistance are the two last gen games I really would love to see brought to PS4.
Hell yes .. Condemned 3 while they're at it
I wish Monolith made Condemned 3! That series and FEAR were creepy as hell!
Condemned 1 and 2 were creepy as hell. Loved 'em!
Fear 1 campaign and multiplayer aka Fear Combat were so fun! Fear combat was really intense and had a great flow after they updated it and made it free for all, and making it so after getting a kill you could take some much needed health by stepping over their corpse. The slow no effect in multiplayer was so empowering and SUPER humiliating when you got taken down anyway by someone was slowed down.
Alma is still the most effective horror villain, the glitchy screens when she was close were awesome
FEAR 3 happened. It went from FEAR to a generic shooter.
Yeah,the first game released prior to the Call of Duty Boom (let's be honest here it really took off with CoD4) Fear 2 already had no chance of reaching that crowd with very challenging A.I.
Fear 2 was one of the last satisfying fps games that felt like an accomplishment to beat
@Profchaos Well I don't even have an issue with the 2nd game but there was no way it would be similar to the first game.
Just started making weird decisions, FEAR was amazing, FEAR 2 had lessened AI and everyone was fitted with explosive tanks for whatever reason but it was still good, and then there's FEAR 3, or im sorry F3AR
The year of the 3,man it's crazy how many third installments released that year. (2011)
Liked the first, loved the second and I enjoyed the third which surprised me, was expecting it to be pretty bad, not as good as the first two but still enjoyable.
F.e.a.r 3 The number 3 is a reaccuring theme when you’re looking at the fall of a franchise. Fear 1 is one of my favorite games. The other 2 sucked.
Fear 2 was underwhelming and the third entry was straight up an embarrassment and understandably neither game sold very well.
I remember when it came out and the ai was so good, I was hoping ai would keep getting better but it actually regressed to being worse than the original half life in most new games.
If only FEAR,Condemned,Dead Space and Red Faction came back. So much potential in those games.
I kind of want a remaster of the first game. I'll never forget laughing my head off at enemies yelling 'FUUUUUCK' in slow motion
I remember being so pumped after seeing the E3 gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/wat... The full game didn't disappoint. Sadly, they went all action with FEAR 3, and the less said about FEAR Online, the better.
Great question, I wonder this myself. I just replayed the series from start to finish over holiday break and what a great set of games. The third was super weak as far as its plot goes but the gameplay was genuinely good. It's a shame they botched the execution of the, you know, FEAR and horror in the third game.
