About this game

Content Rating: Mature

Summary

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.

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.

F.E.A.R. is certainly Game of Year material. Monolith is establishing themselves as a developer to watch out for in the future. Adding this to their repertoire, they now have two stellar FPS franchises including with No One Lives Forever. I wish I could have played this for a little longer but for what is here, I enjoyed every moment. Is it the next Half-Life? It may very well be since anticipation for a sequel is rising every day as more and more play F.E.A.R. for the first time.
