I gave it an 8, Could have gave it a 9, but didn't. This game is pretty badar$e. I rarely write reviews, think wrote on about Borderlands 2 and that's it. And basically wrote about how idiots modding stuff and spreading graveyard virus online ruined that game for me.
Anyways. if you're an adult and are pretty smart you'd probably think this game is really cool. Very similar to Gears of War in a way (environment) and a mix of whatever horror type game you want to choose. The coolest thing about this game is all of the choice you have to choose from. 6-7 different characters with 2 weapons and 2 special powers/weapons each gives you access to just about everything you can think of. The storyline is pretty cool if you're into history and like horror or apocalyptic themes.
If you're an achievement hunter, then this is a must play. I will have to say that the achievement list almost ruins the fun side of the game. This is because you'll use the same character for basically the entire game because of the 250 kill requirements with specific weapon. This game would have easily been a 9 if the achievements were broken into about 5 or 6 different get either 50 or 100 kills with EACH of the characters special abilities or weapons, not 250 basically from the same person with that persons 3 weapons. Yes I do take Trophies into consideration with rating. Gears of War 100,000 kills achievement is dumb as it gets.
If this game did have like 6-8 player free for all online multiplayer mode, this game would be insane. I know I'm not the best critic, but if you don't play for achievements, then you should enjoy this game even more. if you do play for achievements, this game is still awesome, but just takes away from the variety that this game truly does offer. There's 6-7 different characters and they are all there, just like Gears of War has the 4.
The only reason I wrote this review is to let people know that the rating is not even close, unless you're 8-12 years old.
In a generation where fps are the rave, this one is a mixture of originality and poor execution. Though the game is something many FEAR fans will find cool, what it lacks in is the features to seen in other games.

worst game....well One of the worst games I've ever played. I had to stop before I completed the first level because I just didn't care about the characters or the story.... was just bad! The Graphics were horrible as well.
