  1. Another dose of F.E.A.R. is always welcome, but this story goes nowhere. [Holiday 2006, p.56]
  2. Minor issues aside, if you don’t mind a short play time and you enjoyed the first, the expansion should subdue your craving until a true sequel is released.
  3. Even though it’s short, even when compared to other expansions, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point is a fun and visceral experience in league with the original game.

    Even on the highest difficulty setting, Extraction Point is going to take around five hours to beat. Considering only four of the six intervals turn out to be full-featured stages, that's pretty bare bones in terms of price versus gameplay time.
  5. If you still love F.E.A.R. and you want more of it, this will do the trick. But if you want something new, you won't find it here.
  6. This expansion plays largely like the main game, with only a handful of minor changes and improvements. The story opens up some very interesting plot points and unanswered questions, but none of them are resolved, making the adventure very unsatisfying.
  7. At thirty dollars, Extraction Point feels more like an overpriced mod than a full-fledged expansion. Unless you’ve really got to prove you can make it through the same haunt twice, you should buy a ticket for a new ride.

    Great game from start to finish. Isn't as much of a jumpy/thriller FPS as it is a psychological one. It's somewhat fast paced, but also buildsGreat game from start to finish.

    FEAR and FEAR 2 are my favourite horror games, with of Cry of Fear and Outlast possibly beating them, but in any case, Extraction Point is aFEAR and FEAR 2 are my favourite horror games, with of Cry of Fear and Outlast possibly beating them, but in any case, Extraction Point is a non-canon sequel to FEAR and is pretty good. The major gripe however is recycled EVERYTHING. Weapons, environments, gameplay and encounters are basically the same as the original. The are 3 major differences however, 1. A new scary enemy type that creeps me out 2. You can use a handy minigun and 3. It has some new environments that would be made better in FEAR 2. Extraction Point has more mech fights too and they work well, along with the rest of the intelligent AI, slow-mo and mostly non-linear levels. The only other problem besides the minor recycling issue is the connectivity of levels. Some jumps to other locations are absurd; at one point; you exit a subway tunnel to go to the top of a car park building. Also one moment that made me annoyed is this-if you played the first FEAR and remember the fat guy who the only real baddie that did anything against you, he appears in this game, but for about 5 seconds and he's in a place that makes no sense. Overall the game is like the original, but has the fact that it is basically the original with some aged problems, but is still brilliant-pcik it up, especially if it come in the FEAR Files pack cheap.

    Still G.R.E.A.T.

    As an expansion pack for the initial FEAR game it’s to be expected that FEP is basically more of the same; and that’s not a bad thing, given that FEAR was a pretty good game (4/5). So there’s more of the tense, spooky atmosphere and more of the enjoyable combat (the slo-mo is still great fun). The graphics appear unaltered, but it’s not bad looking for a game of its age. There’s still no humour but there is a reasonable story line. And it’s still very much a corridor shooter, with little variation in environment. But it’s the atmosphere and combat that make the FEAR games, and FEP delivers in both areas.

    Excellent singleplayer experience, Lack of multiplayer hurts its overall score as people would love utilising the new weapons online!

Still, this is an expansion that rewards F.E.A.R. fans greatly, and is worth every penny, but a little dry. You get some new stuff here and there, but it doesn't exactly boost the expansion up too much. What gets awkward is how the F.E.A.R. 1 expansions split off into a completely different line of story than the one that's canon in F.E.A.R. 2 & 3, but that doesn't "ruin" the game. Overall, it doesn't match up to Perseus Mandate, but it's still good for a full playthrough. Expand
