Thoughts on F.E.A.R. & New Acquisitions

F.E.A.R. (PS3)
Definitely a great shooter with an excellent, creepy atmosphere, but not a scary one which is how I like my horror themed games. A creepy atmosphere can do a lot more than a stupid jump scare which is why The Shining is one of my favorite horror movies. The slo-mo gunplay is done very well in this game too. Lots of fun weapons to use with my favorite being the VK-12 Combat Shotgun, AKA: my boomstick! My minor gripes are that the enemies and environments are all mostly the same throughout the entire game, but the worst is the lame end of the game where there’s no showdown of any kind of Paxton Fettel. The game just kinda ends which reminds me of the end of Halo 2. Specifically the PS3 version is the worst looking and has a consistent problem keeping the framerate smooth, but none of it is bad enough to be a deal breaker. If the PS3 is your only option for playing F.E.A.R., it’s fine, but if you have the ability to play it on PC or X360 go with one of those instead.

RATING: 5 out of 5 / 8.5 out of 10
