Not For Fans Of The First Twopickelsurprise | March 16, 2014 | See all pickelsurprise's reviews »
I came into this game quickly off the heels of F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2, expecting a satisfying conclusion. While the gameplay is fairly solid, F.E.A.R. 3 fails to deliver as a proper continuation of the series.
Despite being labelled as horror games, the F.E.A.R. series has never really been one of the scariest games around. However, the first two games blended moderate horror and action together into an effective combination. Not the scariest experience, but still a satisfying one. F.E.A.R. 3 on the other hand is hardly scary at all. This is an especially large problem because it is clearly still trying to be. Nearly every horror moment in the game falls flat on its face.
Perhaps F.E.A.R. 3's worst offense is its pitiful conclusion to the series's story. These games never had the most amazing, inspiring storylines, but they were at least moderately engrossing, and I for one wanted to know how the series would end. When F.E.A.R. 3 was essentially reduced to a 5-hour-long arcade shooter, any hopes of a proper story were lost. This game does conclude the trilogy, but not in any satisfying capacity.
Personally I can only recommend this game to players who need a passable co-op experience. Fans of the previous two games should keep a wide berth.
Amazing Combat But Not ScaryIDprofile | Feb. 12, 2014 | See all IDprofile's reviews »
If you are looking for a scary game than F.E.A.R. 2 is the scariest in the series. While F.E.A.R. 2 is one of the scariest games out there to buy, F.E.A.R. 3 is not at all scary. However the combat is amazing. The controls are fluid and work. The guns and the ability to posses AI enemies is very fun. The multiplayer in both cooperative and wave mode are extremely fun. If you are looking for an FPS game to play with your friends then this is it. The graphics are quite good and the game runs smoothly on low end computers. I really suggest playing F.E.A.R. 3. I also suggest playing all of the F.E.A.R. series.
Get it for the co-op and the zombiesUnbenannte | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all Unbenannte's reviews »
Overall its an OK campaign, I really don't like single players, this one at least for me wasn't that horrific or terrifying. The graphics are very nice, you need some power to run this game, so have that in mind. I really recommend this if you have: 1) time to play. 2) someone to play with. Its not that the game is boring or something like that, but the campaign feels like if it had been made for the co-op. It has good graphics, nice campaign, excellent co-op, normal multiplayer, nice guns, good zombies and good sounds. So if you like zombie games, then this one is a nice add to your collection. Not really a must have, but if you have the money, then don't think, buy it, its above normal, but below amazing. Hope you find this useful.
Sequel Syndromevipc | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all vipc's reviews »
The F.E.A.R series, particularly the first one was well known for its horror elements and solid A.I and gameplay. Alas, F.E.A.R also falls victim to the failings of sequels.
F.E.A.R 3 becomes much less about the horror and becomes another generic first person shooter. The gimmick is a bullet time style power which slows down time. The story itself is weak and forgettable, but the graphics are quite nice.
This is a game best played as a co-op experience, and only for the co-op experience. In co-op mode, one of you get to play as the brother which offers a new power, and offers semi-strategic gameplay. All in all though, this still doesn't make it a great game. Unless I have something wrong with my internet connection or of being in the Australian region, the online multiplayer is completely dead.
For $2-3 it might be worth it, especially in co op. Otherwise, if you lack spare time or money, I'd give this a skip.

Nothing is more terrifying than the unknown. The campaign is good fun in single-player and especially enjoyable when played cooperatively with a friend. And the game's multiplayer modes present some thrills for those willing to work with others to survive. It is a thrilling game if you are playing single player at night alone, you will get some (jumps). Animation is great and the weapons and interactions are also great. Very highly recommended.
