    This game would have been so much better if the camera angles were better and use both joysticks. The single joystick for moving and looking stinks.

    I agree camera angles suck, unless you hold down the left trigger the whole time. Which can make your fingers get tired after a while. A map sure would be helpful to. overall, buy it if you have some trade-ins or hit blockbuster to rent.

  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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
