Top 50 Title:
Be the hero in your own cinematic epic of action, tension and terror. A mysterious paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, taking hostages but issuing no demands. The government responds by sending in a Special Forces team only to have them obliterated. Live footage of the massacre shows an inexplicable wave of destruction tearing the soldiers apart. With no other recourse, the elite F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) team is assembled to deal with the extraordinary circumstances. They are given one simple mission: Evaluate the threat and eliminate the intruders at any cost.
F.E.A.R. Extraction Point Extraction Point kicks off where the original game ended – with a bang. As the helicopter which the F.E.A.R. team is on attempts to leave the vicinity, it instead winds up crashing. The F.E.A.R. team is thus forced to seek out an alternate extraction point, all the way battling the now free Alma and her paranormal minions across a destroyed city.
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate As the first F.E.A.R. team and Delta Force fight for control of the situation, a second F.E.A.R. team is sent in to shed some light on Armacham Technology Corporation's (ATC) dark past. As a member of a secondary F.E.A.R. team, you are brought in to discover more information regarding the secret project at the ATC facilities. The multiplayer component for this expansion is no longer available.

Yep! As much as I dislike classic shooters - those with medkits and ammo lying around, FEAR got through to me. I was really hooked into the story. The scares aren't that scary in my opinion. There are few "jumpscares" that can take you unaware and raise your blood preasure a bit.
Overall game impression - very good. Decent graphics(for its time of release), great sounds and music. Good story. All that topped with good FPS experience. A worthwile game. And it comes with two expansions, both of which are pretty long, so you get a lot of play time from this one.

F.E.A.R. is a great FPS with horror elements. If you liked Doom 3, you'll also enjoy F.E.A.R. It has an armor system, like many classic shooters. Bullet time, the ability to slow the game down while fighting enemies, plays a large part in the title. F.E.A.R. has fantastic A.I. The enemies react intelligently, while not being too difficult to kill. One issue the game has is that it is too easy on normal difficulty. Bullet time makes the game easier than it should be. The story is pretty interesting and the gameplay is enjoyable. Overall, the game is definitely worth playing.
Awesome Horror Gamelajvjjajajaaaa | July 31, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
F.E.A.R is great horror game and one of my favorite shooter games. You are sent to eliminate a group of soldiers and their leader. The story was really good but kinda short but solid. The graphics are a bit outdated but it's good for this awesome horror.The game isn't made for the jumpscares but the way it tension - breaking lights, music, chairs that movies it self alone and etc. F.E.A.R is amazing first-person shooter. If your in trouble in fights there is slow motion to help you. There is health bar which means you have limited HP and you'll need medkits. The game ending is awesome. But I won't spoil it so good luck!
Classic Shooter of its time! Horror makes it even better!khawaja07 | July 26, 2014 | See all khawaja07's reviews »
When this game released, it was really ahead of its time, visually and gameplay wise when it comes to First Person Shooters, also its known for its really smart enemy A.I. There's a really nice horror element added to it as well which makes it an exciting experience to play through.
F.E.A.R features solid and responsive shooting mechanics, as i said earlier, pretty smart Enemy A.I that will hunt you down if you get in-sight of it. Slow-Mo makes fighting a whole squad of enemies somewhat easy but exciting at the same time, just when you thought that taking out a host of enemies would wreck you when you're at low health, Slow-mo comes to the rescue! Since this game resembles closely to an Old school shooter, HP doesn't regenerate and you have find & stack up Med-kits, use them when you mostly need them, you never know when you might be one hit away from death.
Visually the game was quite ahead of other shooters of its era, requirements were pretty hefty although in this day & age, it looks not that good. Back in the day it would take a really high-end PC to run it at max. settings but these days it can quite easily run on almost any low-spec PC. The story revolves around a little girl done wrong in an experiment and now you & rest of humanity suffer the repercussions for it. You fight supernatural beings+human enemies and so on. Horror is done pretty damn well and it makes F.E.A.R thrilling and scary to play at the same time!
Overall, F.E.A.R was a pretty damn good game for its time and totally deserves the praise it gets and is worth atleast a single playthrough. You can buy it easily these days at an extremely cheap price and easily feel that you got a lot more content for what you paid for!

I dumped so many hours in to this game back in the day. Today's games look better, but the guns feel ... lifeless. F.E.A.R gave the guns and bodies this amazing feel that I've yet to experience elsewhere. After killing an enemy, you could play with the ragdoll body by slide kicking it across the map. Even better, you had legs. Hard to believe, right? You could look down and see your own legs. Same with the kicks.
