Is F.E.A.R. 3 The First Sleeper This Year?
Well F.3.A.R has quietly released in America today and normally when a game doesn’t get much attention, it usually signals that it may not be very good.
The first reviews are in and although they aren’t saying this is the best shooter ever made, it is getting solid comments and averaging 79 at Metacritic and most reviewers agree that it is an engrossing game that does bring new things to the table.

Another great addition to the series. It’s not perfect but it’s a lot of fun and there’s a lot of value and re-play value included.
While F.3.A.R may not be the most competitive FPS on the market, it offers a ton of unique mechanics you really can’t find anywhere else.
F.E.A.R. 3 has its flaws, and some of its scares come off more as loud and obnoxious than genuinely frightening. Overall, though, the game is a fantastic blend of horror and action that’s armed to the teeth with extras.
From the single-player campaign that can be played through twice with two different characters to the co-op campaign that you can play through with a friend locally or online to an incredibly thoughtful multiplayer offering, F.E.A.R. 3 has a lot going for it.
Imagine stacking F.3.A.R. up against, say, Resistance 2. Shooters both, the games are about on par with one another in terms of graphics, sound, gameplay, etc. The difference is Resistance came out in 2008. It’s 2011, and forward-thinking gamers simply don’t feel like yesterday’s best is today’s as well. I say bring on F.3.A.R. 4, but make sure we have some new ideas, better scares and an easier to type title next time around.
