It's not as pioneering as the original but FEAR 3 is one of the more interesting titles on shelves stacked with samey shooters...

A passable single player game that’s hilarious fun in co-op. Full of weird and enjoyable multiplayer...

OnLive has a whole bunch of trailers for just about all of their games and since they don’t have to buffer down and are playing straight off their server I can randomly click on different ones when I have a free moment and feel like picking my next...

F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) dazzled the PC community when it released in 2005 with graphics that pushed current systems to their limit and enemy A.I. that could easily be mistaken for real human reactions. I mean, where else could you...

FEAR 3 spends too much time being a mediocre horror game and not enough innovating, but it’s still a wild...

By HardwareHeaven on 82

At its core F.E.A.R 3 is a modern day first person shooter so all of the key ingredients are here, the ability to carry multiple weapons, including two of the same type for dual handed attacks, we can zoom to target and health regenerates when we seek...

By Strategy Informer on 75

Gamers have a love/hate relationship with the F.E.A.R. series. They love the first one and hate the second. The first was a satisfying, intelligent and occasionally terrifying FPS, the second was… an FPS. The third attempts to get back to the first’s...

Pros: Excellent multiplayer modes; co-op adds some fun and replay value to the campaign; visually impressive.

Cons: Hackneyed single-player campaign story and characters; low on the ol' fear factor; hard to find people to play with.

Before I begin the review, note that this doesn't look at multiplayer (since the game has only just been released to everyone) – that portion will be updated on a later date. Instead we focus on the single player and co-op portions of the game.The...

By Channel News Australia on 50

F.E.A.R. 3 seems to have taken that legacy of cinematic horror gold and boiled it down to run-and-gun, room-by-room shooting, melded around a co-op gimmick that doesn't wash down as swimmingly as it's been promised.Before I begin the review, note that...

F.E.A.R. 3 is a first-person shooter and the third installment of the paranormal series that follows the spectral girl/woman Alma. After the, um, shocking and graphic ending to F.E.A.R. 2, Alma is expecting. What else can bring a murderous family...

By GameSpot on 75

It's short on scares, but satisfying shooting and exciting cooperative play make F.E.A.R. 3 a thoroughly enjoyable...

By 1Up on 81

The F.E.A.R. series has unintentionally become "that video game series I don't have time to play," for myself. Approaching this as a new fan, F.E.A.R. 3 is a terrible jumping on point to figure out things like, "who (or what) Alma is," "what's a...

By ign.com on 80

I really like F.E.A.R. 3. While it’s an experience that’s far from flawless, it’s one of those games that still gives you a lot of bang for your buck. And that’s perhaps what impresses me most. Sure, there are better shooters on the market in terms of...

By Armchair Empire on 60

When the original F.E.A.R. hit PCs back in 2005, it quickly earned a respectable position in the overcrowded FPS market with its fast-paced (and often gory) firefights and cerebral horror sequences, creating a unique marriage of Resident...

International Review By SLAM on 70

Eigentlich wären "F.E.A.R. 3" alle Zutaten zur Verfügung gestanden, um wie seine Vorgänger einen großartigen Gänsehaut-Shooter abzugeben. Stattdessen vermasseln eine löchrige Story, inflationär eingesetzte Gruseleffekte und mangelhafte deutsche...

International Review By svethardware.cz on

Když v roce 2005 přišlo studio Monolith s prvním dílem F.E.A.R., jednalo se jednoznačně o velkou herní pecku, která kombinovala několik faktorů již známých herních vychytávek. Hra se snažila přinést atmosféru Doomu 3 kombinovanou s “bullet-timem“...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 70

Die Handlung ist verwirrend, das Gameplay altbacken und die Grafik angestaubt - F.E.A.R. 3 ist leider nicht die erhoffte Fortsetzung geworden, auf die viele Fans gewartet haben. Viel erschreckender ist aber die Tatsache, dass das Spiel so rein gar...

International Review By zeden.net on 80

Pour ce nouvel opus, les développeurs ont adopté une approche radicalement plus orientée vers l'action que vers le côté angoissant. Il y a bien quelques apparitions, mais rien qui ne puisse faire monter la tension. Cette sensation est renforcée par le...
