F.E.A.R. 3 is a decent shooter game, but it has lost its horror roots. F.E.A.R. 3 is no longer an FPS horror game, but an FPS with a supernatural theme. The scares are mostly either gone or not scary, and anyone who has played the first two and enjoyed what it provided will be sorely disappointed by this. The story of F.E.A.R. finally concludes in F.E.A.R. 3 and for that reason alone you should probably play F.E.A.R. 3 if you have played the first two. The shooting is just as good and challenging as the first two, if not better (that’s what releasing on more powerful hardware will get you), as are the graphics (again, more powerful hardware). Sadly the atmosphere is not quite as frightening as the first two games, and this time it can’t be explained away by the fact that you have already played the first two games; the game just isn’t as scary because there is not as much of a focus on scares. Sure, there might be some stuff that scares you, but not in the way F.E.A.R. scared you. If you played F.E.A.R and F.E.A.R. 2, you should play F.E.A.R. 3. If not, play F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2 and then play F.E.A.R. 3.
