    An early Christmas present from Monolith and it is some violent and vicious online action that looks absolutely gorgeous, although players will need a pretty hefty gaming rig to experience it in all its glory.
  2. F.E.A.R. Combat will not revolutionize the FPS genre like "Half-Life" did all those years ago, but it is fun, fast paced, and better than many of the other titles out there. And, you can’t beat the price.
  3. As a free download this game is definitely a can't-miss for FPS lovers, and definitely worth a look even for those who might not otherwise take the plunge and pick up a copy of F.E.A.R.
  4. Way to go, Vivendi! It is always better to give it away free than let it be forgotten. [Dec 2006]

    Fantastic multiplayer Game that now rises again! At fear-community you can now finally get cd-keys again. The
    gameplay, graphics, gore and fun is awesome, maybe even more fun than counter strike source. And this is a FREE game!

    My favourite gamemodes are Capture Hold, SlowMo Deathmatch, Capture the Flag. There are even some cool Low Gravity servers!
