Storyline

You play a new member of the secret First Encounter Assault Recon, a secret commando unit specializing in paranormal threats. For your first mission, you must find the mysterious and murderously insane Paxton Fettel who has escaped from prison and seized control of a prototype army of clones. As you hunt for Fettel, you must battle his clone soldiers who become increasingly advanced and dangerous. If that is not bad enough, you also encounter strange and bizarre sights as you uncover clues suggesting a greater crisis than even Fettel holds. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

On most of the bulletin boards in the game you will see "TPS Reports". This is a reference to the movie "Office Space" (1999) where Bill Lumberg was always bothering Peter Gibbons about his TPS Reports. See more »

Goofs

While the player's goal is to eliminate Paxton Fettel through the entirety of the game, it is very possible to kill him in the very first level. At one point during the first Interval/Stage, the player can activate Slow Mo and squeeze off several rounds of fire into Paxton before he knocks the Point Man out with a 2X4. However, none of the bullets register and the Point Man is predestined to be knocked out regardless of their actions. See more »

Has This Game Aged Well?
1 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely. This game originally came out in 2005, but I didn't start playing it until Christmas of 2015. And honestly, it's probably one of the most realistic, creepy, and decently challenging shooters I think I've ever played.

Pros:

-Smart AI

-Dripping in atmosphere

-Fantastic level design

-Gunplay still really holds up

Cons:

-Story is a bit tough to follow

-Graphics haven't aged that well, but it's not too bad

-Does suffer from its fair share of glitches.

But most of those cons are just nitpicks. FEAR is a fantastic game and I highly recommend it.
