    Puts out where it counts. Cold Fear is a pants-browner. [Aug 2005, p.68]
  2. The game utilises a series of components and dare we even mutter it under our breath, clich├ęs that can be derived from any number of horror films and survival horror titles, which is no big fault since for the most part (travelling aside) the game is an enjoyable title away from the established franchises that does offer some new ideas and details to the genre.
  3. A highly polished title that shows that Ubisoft's action-focused approached to the horrific can be gory fun, too.

    When I first started Cold Fear I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The sway of the ship, the rain, the lightning. All lended a nice touch.When I first started Cold Fear I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The sway of the ship, the rain, the lightning. All lended a nice touch. Then I tried playing the game. Forget WASD, the movement controls for this game are F*KD and the aiming is just as bad. Stopped and uninstalled after just 15 minutes of "play". Gave the game to a friend. He played for about as long. Even for free this game is a pass. Full Review »

All in all i thought it was a great pretty original game which will be enjoyed by many people... and who can beat a price of about $7 depending on where you look! Full Review »
