Repetitive levels

This game is cool for about the first hour - then it's just the same thing over and over and over again. The bad guys are smarter than in some other games and will attempt to flank you, but for the most part they are pretty dumb and not all that challenging. Also, you get to hear their radio chatter which means everytime you get close to the bad guys you get a decent heads up. No surprises here.

The random "horror movie" style effects are jolting the first couple of times, but then you realize that there is no consequence for the sequences and you beging to ignore them.

Oh, and the graphics suck. The levels look like old Doom levels with repeating textures and wall surfaces - everything is very square, and even the office buildings look like warehouses. Resistance Fall of Man has much better graphics, but both titles suffer from linear gameplay.

Call of Duty is a much better shooting game just because you have a bit more flexibility in the levels.

Maybe multi-player is fun, but I won't know since I'm giving this game back ASAP.

fear is a pretty good game, but it has a lot of problems, for one the graphics are pretty awful its not ps3 standards at all, the gameplay is pretty good, i like the slow mo thing you can use. the think that i hated most about fear was that there was no voice chat on the online, it pisses me off when developers dont put that in their games, but other than those two big hic-ups fear is a pretty good shooter

I love fear. This is a great fps game. It also makes you jump.... a lot. If you like games where you shoot non stop this is a game for you. even if you aren't a big fan of fps you should like the graphics and the cool bullet effects. The only thing that bugs me is if you get in a fire fight every time you shoot a wall it kicks up dust and you find yourself shooting at muzzle flash because you cant see the enemy's. Overall its worth renting and maybe even buying.
