FEAR Files review

AT A GLANCE
  • Time-altering is timeless
  • Enemy AI is still pretty great
  • First FEAR is awesome by comparison
  • Crushingly bad retro looks
  • Terrible value for money
  • Shit-brown hallways

The truth is, like many other things that were world-beaters a few years ago (like Britney Spears, Ricky Gervais and Spider-Man movies), the F.E.A.R. (in its current guise) looks pretty darn ropey these days. Sadly, the only relevance it has today is its quite scarily superb AI, and the further mystery of how it hasn't been bettered. For this alone, the original F.E.A.R. is worth the $20 you can pick it up for in your nearest games shop. But this? Nah… this is opportunistic nonsense.

    One of my friends was talking about FEAR 3 and i saw this for $5 and picked it up, honestly one of the sh*ttiest games ive ever played, it felt like Halo CE got raped by a crappy horror movie and this is the kid...

    This is now 10 bucks at Newegg, I think I'll probably pick it up now.
