  1. Perseus Mandate offers undeniable value for money. If you love first person shooters, you should really check it out.
  2. Even the positive multiplayer aspect can’t be recommended because it is just nothing new. At around six hours to play through, and with only a moderately intriguing storyline to follow, this is about as thin as F.E.A.R.’s welcome will wear without breaking.
  3. Despite the lackluster narrative and dated graphics, Perseus Mandate still delivers a lot of the fun of the previous games. It isn’t perfect, but it still manages to be a worthy addition to the F.E.A.R. franchise despite the story.

    A solid, competent rehash of aging material that has moments of excitement scattered sparsely through an otherwise middling experience.

    It's not a bad expansion because although it does little new, it's decently sized and repeats a lot of what made the original game such a hit two years ago, but a lack of any kind of polish to the old ideas of the series, let along bringing forth brand new ones, really does lessen the appeal that this expansion has - and I loved F.E.A.R.
  6. If you dig the F.E.A.R. universe and haven't quite gotten your fill of its particular style of clone-killing, office-trashing gameplay, then by all means, give it a go, just bear in mind that you're not likely to enjoy it as much as the original. But if you didn't particularly enjoy F.E.A.R., or are just looking for the best shooter out there, you're better of skipping it.

    This game is badly made and overwhelmingly bleak, and while the original F.E.A.R. still exists, there's absolutely no way I could ever recommend anybody buy this, even if you're on fire and this game is a bucket of water. [Jan 2008, p.80]

    I was happy with this game, it did seem to not be as well made as the other two games. The AI at times is laughable. The story how ever is I was happy with this game, it did seem to not be as well made as the other two games. The AI at times is laughable. The story how ever is the strongest in this game of the entire series. If you loved FEAR you will love this as well. If you have never played FEAR before, you probably should look elsewhere for a FPS. Expand

    F.E.A.R Perseus Mandate was so scary, which is the best aspect of this game and I love it so much. FEAR game was create so scary because ofF.E.A.R Perseus Mandate was so scary, which is the best aspect of this game and I love it so much. FEAR game was create so scary because of the quiet environment, and this is what really shock you because you were so unexpected and suddenly monster came to your back and kill you. It is a bit worst compare to the original game, however I never expect a DLC would have done this much better. It worth a 9, a ten will need to show improvements however I have found nothing. Overall I love it, it was amazing. Expand

    Шняга какая-то. Кринжовый сюжет, тупые злодеи, опять тот же F.E.A.R. - опять мочить клонов и еще каких-то козлов. Разрабы попытались сделатьШняга какая-то. Кринжовый сюжет, тупые злодеи, опять тот же F.E.A.R. - опять мочить клонов и еще каких-то козлов. Разрабы попытались сделать какой-то приквел что ли, параллельная история идущая одновременно с оригинальной частью. Не знаю, душновато, еле прошел, но в принципе даже это лучше, чем 2 и 3 часть. В общем не покидало ощущение, что я будто играю в какой-то фанатский мод, как-то все непрофессионально. Как-то так. Expand

    Very average game. Made for hardcore fans of F.E.A.R. franchise. There are some good ideas, especially at the end of the game but suddenly, Very average game. Made for hardcore fans of F.E.A.R. franchise. There are some good ideas, especially at the end of the game but suddenly, everything is ridiculously left out like developpers was facing a dead end or out of imagination. The 3D engine is totally unfitted to hudge outdoor environments which look more than ever generic and recycled from previous F.E.A.R. Some textures still look good, others are terrible or ugly. Combats are as usual nice and sometimes funny but new weapons won't change the fact that the gameplay is repetitive and boring at the end. Bottom line : it's time for F.E.A.R to end this painful and still unexplained story. $29.95 is somewhere a total rip off for your wallet. Expand

    The original FE.A.R. is one of the best FPS games of all time. This...this is not. The writing is horrendous, the scares are far tooThe original FE.A.R. is one of the best FPS games of all time. This...this is not. The writing is horrendous, the scares are far too in-your-face. Somehow, they screwed up the core gameplay of FEAR (who would have thought that was possible?). They made a good amount of battles completely unfair. Difficulty and fairness are two separate things. The original F.E.A.R was difficult, but never unfair. The voice acting is flat, and not only are the scares in-your-face like I said before, they're also completely and utterly predictable and just not...scary.

    This expansion shines in a few moments, but...it's just nothing short of poor beyond that.
