As a fan of the F.E.A.R franchise i can safely say this is not the best game in the series. Monolith are no longer working on this game, and after a few hours of playing this, i really did not feel like i was playing fear.
to start with, this game is not scary in any way what so ever, usually when alma turns up in these games you know something scary is about to happen, the tension is there, in this when alma turned up it felt no different to spotting gman in half life, and nothing scary followed.
the shooting system is completely different, and because this game has nothing scary in it all you end up doing is pointing and shooting for a solid 8 hours. achievements for killing enemies in certain ways does challenge you to play to a particular style, but you do this on every single level, so it does become very boring.
this game honestly feels like they spent more time trying to make the game look nice than actually making it scary.
the hordes of enemies didn't add much tension to the game either, instead it was just annoying trying to shoot enemies that weren't even that scary and just seemed to jump around a lot and waste ammo.
the ending as well is really anti climatic, the boss fight is the easiest thing in the game, and at the end of this i just felt robbed. i guess this is what happens when you move production rights over to another company. i really don't understand why people are writing good reviews for it
