I FEAR I Spent Too Much on This Game

StoutsUrDaddy | April 30, 2013 | Review of F.E.A.R. 3

Well, FEAR was decent, FEAR 2 was an improvement and pretty fun. FEAR 3 seems like it was thrown together with little effort to improve on its predecessor. The graphics are not that great - textures are messy and the atmosphere of each level consist of recycled areas. The controls work fine for a FPS. The sound is ok and the voice acting is decent. The story line is strange and a little messy. Enemies start to become repetitive. And this game is certainly not "scary" by any means. My assessment is that this title is a mediocre shooter at best. Score out of 1-10: 6.5. Typically, when it takes me a long time to get through a game it's due to the difficulty level and resulting frustration that makes me put it down for a while. However, this game took me a while to get through because I kept putting it down out of boredom. If you are a crazy FPS fan, and are in dire need of something new, this may satisfy you. But probably not. If you are looking for a good story, fun battles, and a game that you can't put down, PASS.

PROS - Control scheme works well - Some gunfights can be fun - Voice acting is not bad

CONS - Enemies are repetitive and actually more annoying than anything else - No real thrills or "scares"
