This game was amazing great storyline, great graphics, and great action but with a great game there are some bugs in this it does get kinda annoying if you keep dieing, it is VERY short (the storyline it only has 8 chapters) there are only like 5 guns you can get, it's not scary at all (I didn't expect it to because your Alamas son(s) ) it is very gorey, lots of cussing, and finally there only two types of enemies humans solders and some creatures alma makes and last but not least there are two ending the game only took me a day to beat it have fun

As you can see from the other ratings you'll either love this game or hate it. I didn't care if it wasn't scary enough. The graphics were great in the private campaign, but it lacked in most other areas. At the first boss battle I set the game onto it's version of easy mode because I found it too aggravating. With enemies coming from every direction you're never sure whether to push forward or hunker down. I don't know if I am getting too old or what, but changing the setting didn't seem to make the game much easier. Only half way through the game (on my first day...) I found myself repeating the same scenes over and over and was more frustrated then entertained. Every game has its challenges. This one was ridiculous. I can't imagine what it would be like to play it on hard. I'd probably end up throwing the controller. So obviously it wasn't for me. I love shooters, especially ones that support move (not this one...) I Had the game back in the mail the very next day. Maybe in the next game they can have a God-mode and leave the pain in the rear setting for the uber-gamers that complain these are always too easy.

So-to-say the game isn't bad... Many that enjoy the title have heard the game has headed into a new direction, which it has, and it is still a great game. Even with the new co-op modes fear still has its classic story-line and gameplay.
The game now features a co-op mode and without deathmatch... Anyone familiar with Call of Duty: Black Ops--The Zombie mode--is just like that but with a more creative twist to it. Instead of hordes of one type of enemy... There is numerous of types... Mainly any enemy that is featured in the storyline... As you progress your way through the waves of enemies.

The story takes a different direction, as well. Instead, of the usual investigating good guy... You play as a rouge experiment.
You play as Point man and as soon as you finish the levels you can play as Fettel.

Genetics are the color-less aspect of how humans exist--the most basic of forms in being of existents...
Alma had two children, two twins boys... Both identical, both being the offspring of Alma--they were tested on with genetics... One was altered especially for the use of psychic-manifests, but that lead his conscience in a state that placed him closer to his mother--Alma. The other son wasn't as tortured but altered and trained to be a ultimate soldier. The two were kept together in their youth but then they were wiped clean of memories of each other.
The trained son was ordered to kill his brother--without question he put a bullet in the other's head.
Death did not break the bond between the brothers... Now the last brother is haunted by the entity of his brother -- The psychic child now is in a state of being and with the ability to possess anyone.

The game is great... Watching the videos will not really draw the aspect of what Fear series has to it. Warner Bros have been keeping this title alive and they are doing a wonderful job.

My only complaint is that there isn't any deathmatch...

Either way -- Awesome story, Awesome gameplay.

This game is worth a try!
