    This game is terrible!!! Rent it, don't buy this game. If this game would have been FPS, it might have been 'OK'...

    This game needed more development time. It would have been better served as an FPS. It had real potential, but ruined it with bad camera angles and a deplorable control system.

  1. In the same league as the disposable horror flicks that fill video shelves and late-night cable. It's not particularly frightening, but good atmosphere and short-lived twitch satisfaction is enough to sustain interest for a while.

    It's good quality and fans of the genre will definitely gain some enjoyment. While not quite as classic or exciting as Resident Evil, it measures up well and is worth a look for horror nuts.

    Taken in isolation, there's no denying Cold Fear's panache - RenderWare has rarely been used to such strong visual effect - and there is a fair helping of survival horror entertainment to be had here, it's just that you have to dig through several layers of frustration to get at it.
