    F.E.A.R. 3 is a fantastic FPS game that blends exciting combat with plenty of scares and non-stop suspense.

    This is so much fun. Play with your buddies in multiplayer, it's a blast! The single player campaign is great, only to be made even more enjoyable by having a friend join you in a unique divergent co-op experience! Full Review »

    Great games which manges to deliver a original and genuine scary single player experience, best played alone and with the curtains closed. The co-op extremely fun due to the two completely different styles of play. The atmosphere is great and this is mostly thanks to the great soundtrack and well designed levels. The gameplay itself is also good, weapons feel genuine and enemies (with great A.I) go down with allot of gore. The multiplayer manages to be original as well as extremely addictive. A refreshing game in a landscape dominated by "been there done that" shooters! Full Review »

    This game is a blast. This a very co op oriented game. I'll start off with the online aspects. The online multiplayer does not have the typical competitive gametypes like deathmatch and team deathmatch. All the online multi is co op. This is one of those games where you and a few buddies can get online, and itll have you screaming, laughing, and having an overall exciting time. The campaign brings the stories of pointman, fettel, and alma full circle. While the gameplay remains much the same, the scare factor and atmosphere has changed from action- horror, to action- somewhat horror. It is a horror story with no scares. Being able to go through the campaign by yourself twice, with a freind in coop as each character, the addicting leveling system, and the stellar online multiplayer, this game should should have itself locked in your disc drive for quite some time. Way better game than the flop most were expecting Full Review »
