Co-op games: F.E.A.R.

Post  DriftWood on Tue Dec 07, 2010 2:24 pm

F.E.A.R. is the game that took several of my friends to recommend to me for months back in the day.

The story line is really interesting and the game is sometimes really disturbing. You play a pointman for your team and try to get the job done. However, the job is not what you would expect...

Great graphics, nice (but a bit repetetive) desings, buildings, enemies and nasty fat man eating chips. Smile
You can play this game for a long time and it has an end in sight so that is a mark of a game with quality and quantity.

Disturbing scenes, so dont play at night in the dark Smile


F.E.A.R. had two expansions that developed the storyline more, but after Vivendi/Warner Bros/Monolith mix ups these are not considered to be part of the F.E.A.R. canon.

I really liked F.E.A.R. and luckily the game had a co-op mod developed and that meant some fighting in the same setting with friends. It was very nice feeling when you could trust your team to something. Smile Instead of moron AI's that only seemed to die or were not there.

F.E.A.R. coop


Dunno if this first game is still played out there as its follow up, F.E.A.R. 2 , has been on the sale for a long time now. Still this was very much fun.

Maybe the legendary Half-Life 1 source will be published soon and we all vould play the original story in a group mode. Smile
And with a top notch graphics.

Nah, not even close to all.

It is just that I had the time and an opportunity to play some of the games.
Only some of them are worth mentioning.

F.E.A.R. is one of them. And as a bonus its single player campaign is well worth the effort.
Lasts long, over 20 hours first time.
And you are not so scared when you play this with a friend. Smile

Ps. F.E.A.R. is not free, but you can find it cheap. Like 5 euros here.

Yes, as the Co-op modification is just a mod, you still need the basic game in order to play the mod. Not like Enemy Territory which does not need players to have Return to the Castle Wolfenstein game. But you can find the game cheap so not a problem really.

Well what can I say. This morning I started fear 1 and I was kinda shocked. I couldn't get higher fps then 11. So I searched for a reason. After reading some forums people said you have to unplug your G15 keyboard....... Well I have a g15 keyboard so I did this. AND WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I had 350 fps............................. I have never had something WEIRD LIKE THIS........

NO IDEA......

And about the game. I played F.E.A.R 120 minuts. And I have to say the graphics are good the AI is good aswell, but its kinda the same story everytime.

Keyboard and fps O.o

And yes, about the only complaint I have against F.E.A.R. is about the designs of the maps and missions. It starts very well, but it is about the same kind of maps and missions. After Fettel you will get to see something else and that fat dude eating chips will offer you some variation Smile

And the game will have a very different tone in the end. Remember to watch it to the end and you shall have a nice little suprise Smile

And those DLC or expansions are rather nice, but as I mentioned they are not viewed as a part of the series these days...
The Main story will continue in F.E.A.R 2 which offers better thought of maps (mainly not the same complex of offices as in the first game). And all this under 10 euros... what a find!

Drift thank you for posting this journal. I played the game about 7 hours already and it's really good. Atm I am at interval 9 ( if I am right you got 11 intervals).
The Chips eating fatty was pro. Also at the begin I thought you only had 3 weapons but I was wrong. You got plenty of weapons. The Beam rifle is really enjoyable.



Edit : I finished the first FEAR (8 hours)

np Smile

Took me enought time to realise what a nice game this is.
With those two expansions it took me over 20 hours to play, so you have a very good start beating my time. They are ok to play and take the story of the game further. But then Monolith had a falling out with Vivendi and Monolith joined later Warner Brothers camp. Then they started to make a next game game and Vivendi still had the rights to F.E.A.R. name so it was called Project Origin.

Then after some dealings elsewhere the rights to that name were bought by Warner Bros and Monolith suddenly had to rights again. but those two expansion were not, so they made FEAR 2 happen after the "basic" FEAR. And those two expansion were not official FEAR storyline anymore.

You can notice that FEAR 2 was done by the same people as the first game was. Graphically impressive and game style is similar. With a different main character and still it features the same Alma and same wierd happenings, maybe not as creepy as the first game but still ok.

Now to wait for FEAR 3 Smile

Ah, I get it. I insert it here with PEGI18+ filter. You can read it once you turn 18 Wink

******* ******** ****** *****. **!

Alma scares everyone... and the game is frightening at times. From small box it looks nothing like the F.E.A.R. 2.

PEGI is not law its only tip
And fear is scary only in alma moments ,but greater part of game its typical shooter. Whats scary in game where u have gun and ur not alone ?
Even sounds arent scary lol. Cant be compared to games like Penumbra/Amnesia , ur scared here almost all time coz of sounds.
