  • 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

    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 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.

    Basically, more F.E.A.R. The quality from the original title remain. Pros: +new locations +new enemys +new weapons +continue story from the end of the original game

    Cons:
    -not so diverse as I expected
    -storyplot a little bit disappointing

    A must play for those who enjoyed original F.E.A.R

    I'm honestly baffled that this as a higher score than Perseus Mandate. 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

    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

    Coming from an experienced FPS gamer perspective ... F.E.A.R. Extraction Point is a chore to get through. There is way too much health scattered around the place, bullet time can be initiated around every corner letting you easily kill every enemy and the scares are fairly cheap although some are interesting to look at. Save your bandwidth and digitally purchase another game. 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
