    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!

    Fear Combat is the one of the best games for multiplayer and hardcore action lovers.

    F.E.A.R. Combat is a wonderful free multiplayer game. graphics worked for my old computer and my new computer. The gameplay is intense and playing with friends is fun. The only factor that annoyed me was the update with 1.07 to 1.08. I could not update with the Sierra updater. Instead, some guy on Filefront was awesome and put the update on there. That was the only problem I had.

    Very nice Mp mode for FEAR. Its as nice a sthe SP mode, not so fll of horror, but as brutal as the SP. The only thing to criticize is, that you need about 5-10bullets to kill someone, but just ONE kick.

    I feel sorry that people are blaming this game for not running on their systems.. GET A NEW PC this is a great FREE multiplayer game and there is no AI in this game (if u want F.E.A.R.) go buy it at the stores.

    Quite an amazing game, need a rather high end pc to run it, but other than that, graphics are beautiful, particle and lighting effects are top notch, gameplay is smooth, fast paced, and the weapons are very well balanced.

    The graphics are SWEET (native widescreen resolution support would be appreciated though) and the gameplay very frantic. Maps are tight and varied. I'd have to agree with David K - there are some weapon balancing issues, but all is forgiven and forgotten the first time you blow some guys head off with a shotgun in slowMo!

    Fear is a great game, with a good story, but it feels allittle rushed during gameplay. Requirements are a bit on the highside, but if you are a gamer playing with 3 year old equipment you will have no choice but to turn the settings down (forget playing on most laptops either). What would have added more to the game would be less linear levels, and the ability to travel around freely. Fear is a great game, with a good story, but it feels allittle rushed during gameplay.

  1. 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.

    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.
  3. Way to go, Vivendi! It is always better to give it away free than let it be forgotten. [Dec 2006]
