Storyline

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.

Quotes

Jin: I made you a flash disk. It should give you all the details about Wee Ming and should give you hints as to where to start looking for her. I hid it in a sign case before that jerk clocked me.
Hana: Where's the key?
Jin: With the jerk.

Interactive cyberpunk on crack!!!
16 May 2000 | by (London Borough of Croydon) – See all my reviews

Whoa! What can I say that doesn't delve into the murky world of cliche?

Imagine what happened if Manga made a combination of Resident Evil, Broken Sword and Metal Gear Solid and that is more of less what Fear Effect is all about.

The game starts just like MGS in so many ways, including the ability to 'stealth' enemies, with RPG (where Broken Sword comes from) undertones, but as soon as you leave Disk One, it takes a turn for the dark and sinister, Resident Evil style.

The use of weaponry is very Hong Kong movie style (where influences clearly come from-the game starts in a Bladerunneresque Hong Kong), such as using 2 pistols at once, although the further you go, the more useless they become.

And events of the final disk has to be one of the most atmospheric experiences ever put onto the PlayStation, outstripping anything Raccoon City can muster, especially acting wise.

A must buy, albeit with a 'Mature' audience in mind.
