    As a game, it's pretty good, but as a half life mod, it's legendary. Comparing the textures and models to half life show how much the devsAs a game, it's pretty good, but as a half life mod, it's legendary. Comparing the textures and models to half life show how much the devs worked so hard on this. There are even animations that had to be hand animated from the lack of physics with the gold src engine it runs on. This game reminds me a lot of Silent Hill 2 with it's design and atmosphere and also the narrative of what is going on within this horror nightmare. Expand

    Cry of Fear was an audacious Half-Life 1 mod that turned into a full fledged game for release on Steam about a year after the release. InCry of Fear was an audacious Half-Life 1 mod that turned into a full fledged game for release on Steam about a year after the release. In short, this game is great. This game contains a gripping story of a young man named Simon who is lost in himself and struggling to survive when monsters appear. Cry of Fear contains a single player campaign that claims to take about eight hours time, but for my first playthrough I was about 12-16 hours of gametime. The gameplay is like most survival horror games, but you are limited, you don't have a briefcase like Resident Evil 4. you do have a backpack and your pockets but you cannot carry everything, forcing you to make sacrifices on what you want to carry and what you NEED to carry, this aspect helps produce more tension when trying to figure out, should I keep this gun even though I have one clip? Or take the melee weapon and key and continue on? The controls work well, and it's not clunky or difficult, except one section of the game which required platforming and was my sole problem with the game.

    Cry of Fear's atmosphere is great, the dark corridors, the creepy forests to a tight packed school, the environments are varied and have a great way of getting you in the mood and into the game. Another aspect of the atmosphere in sound, Cry of Fear has not only a wonderful soundtrack with scary, dark tracks to beautiful melodies, but the sound in the game. Whether they are foot steps around the corner edging closer or bumping on the walls or a scream in the distance, Cry of Fear definitely full fills the scare factor.

    On the topic of features, Cry of Fear has a good lengthed single player campaign, not like a Slender game that takes about 20-40 minutes, this game takes hours. There is also another secret campaign after beating the first, then a completely separate co-op campaign, and multiple custom campaigns along with a custom campaign and map creator that is intuitive and easy to use. Not to mention Cry of Fear's "Suicide Mode" which is basically survival, you kill enemies to decrease the amount of time on the clock to reach zero and survive, it's difficult, but fun and you can do it with friends.

    All in all, Cry of Fear is an amazing package, you get so much content and a wondrous game that was made very well for such a small team, Team Psykskallar did a great job, and did I mention this game is absolutely free on Steam? Go play and have fun! 9/10

Moreover, it can be considered a full-fledged game. Yes, the developers have spent a lot of effort to suck all the juices out of the old engine.
    The main character is 19-year-old Simon, when he was walking home he was hit by a car. He remained disabled for the rest of his life and began to have nightmares and terrible thoughts.
    He had severe depression and was assigned a doctor, our Doctor advised him to write a book in order to write down all his thoughts in order to get rid of them. When we play as Simon all the events in front of the main character are fictional, we see the sequence of events of the book he is writing.
    Well, I will not continue to tell the plot, you have to find out everything in the game, it will be very interesting.
    VERDICT: I really liked the game, I put it 10/10 as a mod for Half-Life and 9/10 as a full-fledged game!

    Amazing 'Free To Play" game on STEAM! But be warned it's very intense and not your average survival horror. Shows very intense scenes andAmazing 'Free To Play" game on STEAM! But be warned it's very intense and not your average survival horror. Shows very intense scenes and depression and definitely not for the faint of heart. There are of course little problems with this games that aren't too bad but I believe the only problem that really bothered me the most is if you go to notes, once you're in there you cannot go out unless you quit. Now i'm only 95% you can't get out of this problem unless you quit but I may be just to dumb to look over the controls that well. Expand

    Cry of Fear is a survival horror game following the main protagonist, Simon, trying to escape a deserted town and get home. In it's bestCry of Fear is a survival horror game following the main protagonist, Simon, trying to escape a deserted town and get home. In it's best moments, it proves to be an amazing psychotic roller coaster that puts you against your own insanity. In it's worst moments, makes you want to throw your computer across the room and rage quit, haha!

    To be completely fair, the pros definitely outway the cons in this game.

    [First. the pros!] -Cry of Fear is an insane rollercoaster and a heart attack thrill ride. It takes inspiration from games like Silent Hill and it definitely shows. The voice acting, to be honest, is decent, but the story itself really shines. The graphics are definitely fitting for this game, too. The atmosphere is genuinely chilling at times, along with the background ambiet noise and music, it really keeps you on your toes, the psychotic episodes Simon suffers remind me of the nightmare sequences in Max Payne. I really like the different variety of monsters and areas in the game, for a free game, it's pretty huge!

    [Now the cons...] -While loving the monster designs and areas, there are some moments where there's too many monsters in one area, leaving you dying more than once on any occasion. There's been so many times I had low health, close to death with no syringe in sight leaving me defenseless at times to the enemies that may attack at any given time. It wasn't bad, it just got over intense at times. Also some glitches did happen to occur, like going through a doorway only to be flipped around still outside the door.

    Now besides all the cons, I thought this game was amazing, finally a horror game that gets it right! The story itself is thrilling, the environments, chilling, and me nearly wetting my pants trying to see what's around each corner made this a great ride that I'll definitely revisit to see all the endings. Definitely worth checking out especially since it's free!

    I give it an 8/10 [It has flaws, but overall great experience!]
