Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

Nothing to F.E.A.R. but F.E.A.R. itself?
Posted on Saturday, May 9 2009 @ 05:56:28 Eastern

So, I got F.E.A.R. Platinum Edition the other day (alongside Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, hey it was a bargain), and I thought it would be a pretty damn scary game.

Nope. Either I have more balls than most gamers out there, or F.E.A.R. is just a convenient acronym.

In my honest opinion, the AI was more scary than the set pieces. With their sheer tenacity, intelligence and sheer 'pop out from behind a corner you were behind and kill you' attitude, they tend to cause a lot of swearing.

Mind you, I got my own back once. One enemy ran to a corner to shoot from, except since he last spotted me, I had flanked him and slide-kicked his unaware ass into the wall.

F.E.A.R. may stand for First Encounter Assault Recon, but it could just as easily stand for Frustrating Enemies Always Raging.

Yeah, that sounded a lot better in my head...
