F.E.A.R. Lives Up To Its Name  - F.E.A.R. Lives Up To Its Name

To be blunt, FEAR is the best first person shooter to come out on the PC this year. It uses a story unique to the genre to create an immersive atmosphere of dread with perhaps the most visceral combat experience ever brought to the PC. When Soldier of Fortune 2 came out, I remember thinking that it was just great that you could blow off your enemy’s legs and disembowel him, but also thinking that it seemed too flippant. FEAR manages to take that level of gore and put it in the right climate: an over-the-top action movie. It features the beautiful bullet ballets popularized by Max Payne and pushes squad AI past the Half-Life standard. The level of first-person immersion that it for the most part creates is what makes the odd clipping glitch or being able to kick a dead body ten yards that much more painful. Thankfully, you’ll be too busy having a blast with psychic visions and waves of deadly clones to notice these infrequent oddities or the drab environments.
