Ships Ahoy - F.E.A.R. 3

WBIE announces the North American launch of F.E.A.R. 3, Day 1 Studios' new contribution to the horror-themed shooter series originated by Monolith Productions. Here's a bit on the game:

In F.E.A.R. 3, players can take on the role of Point Man, a genetically enhanced super-soldier, or the undead spirit of his brother Paxton Fettel, a paranormal entity who possesses incredible psychic powers. The two brothers have a vicious history but must work together in an uneasy alliance to pursue Alma Wade, their tortured and psychically gifted mother, who is about to give birth to something that could destroy the world.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Day 1 Studios enlisted two horror masters, legendary film director John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), to consult on the cinematics and script.

F.E.A.R. 3 evolves the F.E.A.R. franchise by introducing a unique system called divergent co-op, along with social gameplay that gives players distinctly different abilities that affect their own play and the experience of gamers they are playing with…or against. The game also offers a robust scoring and challenge system, which encourages replay, tactical variation, and exploration throughout the game.

I'm actually quite enjoying the game, especially in co-op. It has its faults, the skybox outside of windows in the apartment complex, anyone? The console minded design is noticable but not game breaking and the PC controls seem to be spot on for me. The creepiness isn't what I remember it being in the first but part of that may have to do with familiarity with the FEAR universe. Ive still been genuinely creeped out a couple of times and the best part was that it was directly shared with a friend. The other multiplayer modes are pretty fun and I appreciate that in some cases they tried something new. The game isn't a blow away but it's decent. Imglad I saved my money by not buying DNF and put it towards this.
