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

    The controls are tight and responsive, the story is well-written and intriguing, that continuous fear factor is a huge bonus, and the Challenge system for ranking up forces you to experiment.

    F.E.A.R. 3 is a good shooter but never surpasses the very first F.E.A.R. game. The gameplay is very smooth and you'll be playing this campaign multiple times because of the co-op and the different gameplay elements each brother possesses. F.E.A.R. 3 lacks scary moments and that is a pity, seeing how this used to be a key element in the series.

    A welcome treat, if only for its nerve-grinding atmosphere. The campaign is far too short-with Fettel, you could probably whiz through it in three or four hours-but the multiplayer modes are a lot of fun.

    While F.E.A.R. 3 is at its best as a solid(and fun)co-op shooter, it stumbles as an addition to the series. [Sept 2011, p.82]

    Maybe if it inspired loss of bladder control in the same way the original did - or, better still, how Monolith's Condemned did - it might have been slightly more memorable. FEAR 3 is sadly lacking in the fear department, and has subsequently lost its defining characteristic.

    First off let me just say when i first saw the trailers for this game I was not expecting this game to be good. I picked it up on day 1First off let me just say when i first saw the trailers for this game I was not expecting this game to be good. I picked it up on day 1 because I wanted to finish the story and because I had purchased all the FEAR games on day 1. I was pleasantly surprised with this game! I enjoyed it. It's not my favorite FEAR game but its definitely a freaking sweet game. Rent it or Buy it. Whatever you do at least try it. Expand

This game is actually really creepy and has made me jump a few times. Not only is it scary, but the shooting and cover is solid. I'm enjoying it very much, although it's not the most original game.

The single-player campaign is scary and can be played with a friend. However, on the PS3 version, I couldn't play any of the mp modes 'cause there was no one playing the MP and I could only find one co-op campaign match, WTF?! Either way, its fun, even on co-op.
