Horror shooter heaven
This stunning shooter is an absolute must play for anyone who enjoys the likes of Doom
. It mixes intense action and horror to superb effect and in this package you even get two addons besides the main game itself. The game starts with a mysterious facility being infiltrated by terrorists but who make no demands. When the government sends in the troops, they're wiped out in gruesome fashion by strange entities that are only glimpsed on grainy camera footage. In response, the elite F.E.A.R. team is sent in to deal with this terrifying threat, which is where you come in. The addons build on the storyline, with Extraction Point picking up the story as the first game ends, and Perseus Mandate telling the tale of a second F.E.A.R. team and their uncovering of the dark secrets behind the facility. The game itself is a first person shooter but one which is packed with incredible hyper-stylized combat which lends it a real cinematic feeling. The supernatural storyline is absolutely gripping, with all the twists and turns of Resident Evil
or Silent Hill
and which will keep you hooked to the very end. The visuals are top notch, with a wonderful sense of creepy atmosphere which sends plenty of shivers down your spine. The enemies are very well designed, and are terrifying, haunting and genuinely clever. The AI is really well done, so it feels like you're battling real players and which adds immensely to the fun. The base game is worth the entrance price alone but with the addons, this is a must have package.
