    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.
  4. 76
    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.

    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.

    Nice. Scary. Freaking well made PC Game!

    Really puts all the lame abysmal garbage console ports we get now a days.

    Highly recommend this even now in 2016 for its awesome execution (remember how a PC Game should feel like), amazing atmosphere, serious level design, sound, and - of course - amazing gameplay. It is not F.E.A.R. - but a damn good expansion.

    Some advice for devs and pushers - Complete a PC Game first - THEN port it to consoles. Not the other way around.
    Learn, you greedy bastards - maybe you'll start earning back some respect from PC Gamers.

Personally I found to be just as creepy as the first game if not more so then the original, but even so it was just more so of the same. A few new weapons help to move this game along and there was a little progress to the story but not much. In the end if you loved the original you will love the expansion... if you like more of the same. Great game play, great shoot'em up, but a bit short. Hey at least it was far better then the very disappointing (1 hour).... Half Life 2 Ep.1 Expand

    Worth playing at its time a lot of reused environments get old, but the gore and kill satisfaction is still one of the best to date which is sad for how old it is.

    Worth $2

The combat feels meaty and all the area andFEAR 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
