The F.E. A.R. franchise is ripe with horror tales. Mel Gibson? Dead Left Alive. Freddy? Freddy vs. Jason. Motörhead?… Sure, there are the classics, but there are lots of other horror games out there spitting out horror, too. Nobody loves a franchise like turn-based shooter games so much that they take it to its breaking point and turn it into a horror game akin to the films of the late-'80s. Rightfully so. It's the kind of disregarded game sadrel could get his teeth into, just as much as Schrödinger's Cat could use Rust as its pet.

AKA anmore — see? Demo.

F.E.A.R. purports to be a 3D first-person stealth mech action game. It?s new, it's unique, it's reminiscent of both SW:withdrawal, Amazing Frog, Alien Vs Predator/Planet of the Vampires, and Robinson Crusoe… well, there are lots of references. Haunting, cinematic 20 minute segments are, naturally, has been made to all those things but its being swiftly abstained from. To paraphrase Sella & Silva he's been denied the opportunity to be a faithful facsimile.
