What is F.E.A.R?

What is F.E.A.R? Well apparently it’s not just an emotion but also the latest computer game. Just like your standard computer game it involves you mortally wounding an opposition member in order to succeed. F.E.A.R (First Encounter Assault Recon) was developed to defend America’s national security agaisnt any paranormal behaviour. Although this game will not be out until October 2005, FEAR’S official website allows you to download a sample version of the game.According to the websites overview of the game (

“F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) is an intense combat experience with rich atmosphere and a deeply intense paranormal storyline presented entirely in first person. Be the hero in your own spine-tingling epic of action, tension, and terror... and discover the true meaning of fear. Hyper-stylized combat for breathtaking cinematic quality action
Gripping supernatural storyline for spine-tingling intensity of play
Multi-player action with multiple game play modes and all single player capabilities.
Advanced graphics and physics for visceral movie-like experience
Enemies with special abilities and A.I. so intuitive it's like battling living, breathing players”
Although I’m not an avid computer gamer, for me this game looks to combine the worlds of both cinema more specifically a thriller based movie and the sophisticated world of gaming technology to create a game that is so intense and terrifying it would test any gamers nerves of “steel”.

It does look like an interesting little game, and I've only played the demo.

I always suggest being very careful in linking games to films, but that's for a variety of complicated and boring reasons that don't necessarily matter here. It's certainly impressive, with some very well thought out effects designed to foster immersion in the player.

Unfortunately, as much as I like games I'm not necessarily very good at them. So far in the FEAR demo I keep getting viciously beaten as if I were paying for vigorous service.

I'll try it again when I'm more awake.
