Fear Effect follows the adventure of three mercenaries:Hana,(an ex-prostitute) Glas, (the tough American) and Deke (the sadistic Aussie). Taking place in the future, the mercenaries search for 18 year-old Wi-Ming Lam, daughter of the president of a large organization in Hong Kong. When she runs away Wi-Ming is captured and held for ransom by a group called the Triad. After her father puts out a bounty for his daughter, the three mercenaries arrive in Hong Kong hoping to get some easy cash. Unfortunately, it all goes wrong and a sinister plot involving demons, ghost, and a sacrifice will take Hana and her friends from Hong Kong to a bordello to Hell itself in a story filled with Chinese mythology and filled with irony and deception.

An excellent action-adventure which delivers the goods in all areas
1 May 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Fear Effect is a truly amazing game. It is an explosive action-adventure on 4-discs. You follow three mercenaries, who is on a job in Hong-Kong. The first thing you`ll notice about the game is the fact that it looks gorgeous, with lots of fancy animation and cool things happening in the backgrounds. The soundtrack sets a perfect atmosphere in Fear Effect. Just like in John Woo`s actionmovies, the characters in Fear Effect are able to hold two pistols at once, making actionscenes a treat! The story is innovative and very interesting, but I won`t spoil that for you. Fear Effect is probably one of the last truly original and classic games we will see on the playstation 1. The storyline is a mature one, which is a refreshing change from the "cute/childish" storylines of most other games out there. There is plenty of violence and even some hmmmm.... sex in this game.

Go buy it!(if you are over 15/17) 9/10
