Great Game !!!!
The game was actioned for less than the original price. If you like first shooter games, this one is very good. It is very exciting and scary. The game is a mix between "Resistence: Fall of Men" and "Resident Evil". Squads of tactical teams use coordinated attacks and flanking maneuvers to pin you down and take you out. High tech assassins cling to walls and ceilings and ambush you from the shadows. Heavy armor units that soldiers will advance behind and use for cover.
The graphics are impresssive and the story line is very good. This game is better than "Medal of Honor".
The only thing I did not like about the game is that you can nly carry three (3) weapons at the time, so you have to keep switching constantly for a better one.

AWESOME Mix of Horror and First Person Shooter
The PS3 version of F.E.A.R. is almost exactly the same as the PC and Xbox 360 versions in terms of content. You play as the newest member of the First Encounter Assault Recon, the military's top-secret task force that is assigned to deal with paranormal situations. And the mission in F.E.A.R. certainly counts as above and beyond the regular call of duty. As explained in the opening sequence, a military commander, named Paxton Fettel, goes insane and takes over a secret army of cloned soldiers that are telepathically linked to him. Fettel and the battalion of elite soldiers then go on a rampage in a nondescript American city.
F.E.A.R. strikes a balance between spooky atmosphere and electric action. The gunfights in the game are impressive. Bullets tear chunks out of concrete and wood, blinding clouds of dust and debris fill the air, bodies are torn apart or slump on the ground, and the deathly silence of the aftermath contrasts sharply with the sheer chaos that erupted only moments before. Gunfights in F.E.A.R. feel right. This is partly because the weapons you have in the game feel the way weapons should—powerful. You have the standard array of guns to play around with, including a pistol, a submachine gun, an assault rifle, a shotgun, and a rocket launcher. There's also a scoped, burst-firing rifle that's a dead ringer for Master Chief's battle rifle in Halo 2, as well as an incredibly nasty particle weapon that sears the flesh off of opponents and a few other special toys.
Other than the game having a bit of lag sometimes, I find nothing wrong with it. The graphics are awesome, and the gameplay is fast and fun. I definitely recommend the game. Buy it, turn off the lights, and enjoy.

Nothing scary about F.E.A.R.
I heard a lot of cool things about F.E.A.R. when it came out for the PC many years ago. I always wanted that game after playing there free multiplayer only version and wanted to pick it up on the PC. Well unfortunately I couldn't find it on the PC for a reasonable price so since I owned a PS3 that would be my other option.
Graphics good for an old game
Not even scary - F.E.A.R. 2 was scarier than this
On the PS3 multiplayer is practically nonexistant (and the free PC multiplayer version players were scarce as well)
I enjoyed this game very much. I thought it was weird that the guns in the game would only be 3 round bursts (even the rocket launcher) that you couldn't change the settings. I thought this was rather lame. There were not enough "scary" parts in the game but I do admit it was rather creepy. Sad no games showed up in multiplayer so I can't tell you how awesome it is on the PS3 but the PC it was pretty cool. Frame rate issues plague the PS3 version and I do feel like the frame rates where about 20 fps so that quite low. I beat this game in one day playing it for less than 10 hrs on normal difficulty. The story is good and it was rather interesting since I own F.E.A.R. 2 and played it first I was rather happy about the ending in this one. I can't wait till F.E.A.R. 3 comes out. But people who want to play F.E.A.R. should stick to the PC version as it will have better fps (if your computer can handle it).
Very Substandard Shooter
Avoid this game at all cost. I bought it thinking that I'd get a cool first person shooter for a low price. This game is very poorly ported from the PC version of the game. The graphics are very poor. I think that the PS2 would have been a better platform form this game. If your thinking about buying this game, buy it for Xbox 360 or PC. Avoid the PS3 version of this game.

If you enjoy a game that is intense and you don't want to stop playing, this is the game for you. It is a combination of ghostly encounters, like in a movie as well as the shooter's game. The graphics are excellent and the theme/story is excellent. I don't believe you will be disappointed with this game, it is well worth the money.
