About this game

Content Rating: Mature


The story begins when a paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, and the government responds by sending in Special Forces. The group loses contact with the government when an eerie signal interrupts radio communications--and when that interference subsides moments later, the team has been destroyed. That's where you come in. As part of a classified strike team created to deal with threats no one else can handle, your mission is simple: eliminate the intruders at any cost, determine the origin of the signal, and contain the potential crisis before it gets out of control.

what a beautiful game. it was really entertaining shooting experience in slow-mo. it was really hard to get on. there was like 7 different weapons. oh, that ghosts, walking around you is so creepy. and jump scares. oh i'm in love with jumpscares in games. also music was so creepy. and the story. oh my god what a beautifully made story it has. and the ending was perfect, like twisted film.

F.E.A.R. is all about messing with your head in single player. If you aren't freaked out by the ambient noises and ghoulish aspects during the games "downtime" you'll be on the edge of your seat trying to stay alive during the extremely intense firefights. Since the fear you'll experience isn't the result of scripted or canned events, F.E.A.R. comes off feeling fresh and inspired even though it sometimes relies on parlor tricks to get the heart puming a little faster than usual.

Monolith forges new shooter territory with some truly freaky elements, challenge, fun, and beauty. If there is a fly in the ointment, it's that the environments aren't too varied, and the game is kinda short. And there are a few plot holes (where did this army come from?) and logic holes (how can I access all of this voice mail?). Otherwise, I was sucked in to the end.

This is a game that will thrill you one moment and scare you the next. F.E.A.R. features some of the greatest gunplay available in a first-person shooter, and it elevates the art of firing a gun to whole new levels. This alone makes it an incredibly intense game that must be experienced. The fact that it's also one of the creepiest games ever made is just icing on the cake.
