  • Summary: Defeating the forces of Armacham was only the beginning. The F.E.A.R. - Extraction Point Expansion Pack takes you to the next chapter - now Alma is looking for retribution. The game kicks off where the original game ended – with a bang. The First Encounter Assault Recon Team (F.E.A.R.) returns to battle the now free Alma and her paranormal minions across a destroyed city. New locations, weaponry and enemies combine to take the F.E.A.R. franchise to new levels of action and suspense. [Vivendi Games] Expand

  1. Another dose of F.E.A.R. is always welcome, but this story goes nowhere. [Holiday 2006, p.56]
  2. Monolith clearly made Extraction Point just for the people who loved the original F.E.A.R. It offers an extension to the game, but not much else falls under the “new” column.
  3. While other first-person shooters will deliver moments of brilliance, F.E.A.R. gives you the tools and lets you create your own moments.

    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. Offers 4 - 6 more hours of the kinetic single-player close quarters combat that made the original game such a stellar hit. While we wish the storyline was a little deeper and the game was a little longer, Extraction Point still delivers what it promises on the box.
  6. The biggest issue I have with Extraction Point is that it doesn’t really end. You get to the final cutscene and...nothing. There’s no delivery. There’s no wrap-up. Something happens, and then basically you’re told to wait for FEAR 2 to find out what’s next.
  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 builds up a sense of tension and horror.. as if a little dead girl is following you're every move. A must play of horror/fps fans. Expand

    While not as good as F.E.A.R. it's still pretty awesome, and even more tough than it's predecessor. The action is non-stop, story not that bad, and overall it's just a pretty nice game if you like FPS's. Expand

    As the titles says FEAR, one of the few games that actually induced a high level of immersion and actual real FEAR. On your own in the dark with headphones, awesome experience on the first playthrough. Expand

    Basically just more FEAR. There's next to nothing new in this expansion. The story is almost non-existent and the FEAR series doesn't even consider it canon. You'll fight your way through the same areas, fighting the same enemies, looking at the same grey color for the entire campaign. Not really worth it unless you're a die-hard FEAR fan itching for more action. Expand

    FEAR had some really satisfying shooting in it and that is all intact in the expansion pack. The combat feels meaty and all the area and weapon effects really brings the combat to life. The story in this game is pretty much non-existent and its basically about you getting to the evac point. And to get there you have to pass trough pretty standard combat areas like a construction site, a hospital, an office, a train station and let us not forget the sewer. The developers have drenched some of the areas in ridiculous amount of blood to make it fear-like but most areas are really quite grey and unimaginative. There are some new enemies and weapons in the game but players of the original will probably not find a whole lot of new exiting features in this expansion pack. The core gameplay is extremely similar to original which is fine since the original game is by no means bad. The campaign could however be a little bit meatier not to mention actually scary. I didn't get particularly scared at any point in the game despite being a gigantic chicken so the game hardly lives up to its name. The length of the campaign is also a little bit on the short side. This game is by no means bad and its a pretty average first person shooter. Its basically a couple of more hours of the original game which is not a bad deal for a fair price. Expand

    This game adds nothing to the game overall. There is still no plot, not enough weapons. There is no reason to pick this up because it is still "go from point A to point B" for no reason. I recommend against getting this. Expand
