This game isn't actually that scary, it is more suspensful, except for the puddles of blood, if you think that's scary. Campaign mode can either be fun, or really boring. It is a fast paced FPS to its core when you are fighting lots of enemies, and has some stealth elements (but very limited) involved. You can also do punch combos, which actually make melees fun to do. You need to go in slo mo often to preserve your health, even on normal difficutly, enemies have great accuracy.
All of the guns in this game are powerful, except for the pistol, and sub machine pistols. The sniper rifle in this game is gory, I won't ruin any surprises, but it sure looks cool, same as the shotgun, if you aim it right. As I was saying, though, when you are in the middle of a puzzle that you cannot solve, this is when the game starts to drag on, or when you are trying to find a hidden powerup, so you can get that achievement, it also drags on.
I've never tried multiplayer, I heard it's ok, but some people also say that the game automatically slows down, there is also instant action, where you fight never ending waves of enemies, until the time runs out.

I really enjoyed this game, and its pacing. The graphics compared to what you'd see now is good but not as good as what's out there now. However, 'Fear' delivers a great adaption from the original PC version. With a great story, and very spookey and scary enviroments and this weird phase between the real world and illusions. The game itself is just a FPS, however, with small add-ins like seeing someone walking down a hall, or the soft sounds of people screaming creates just an intense gaming experience that'll keep the player in a state of constant suspense over what might be around the corner. This is a great game for people who like to scared and like a thriller of a game. Get this game, you won't be disappointed.
