Finally finished F.E.A.R.

Excellent game, and quite difficult to make it with decent health and
armor on Moderate Difficulty (I never go with "easy"). On the last
series of checkpoints, I lost all weapons except a sidearm…even
though I had access to shotguns and other weapons (before losing them
again), I ended up going exclusively with the sidearm, since I only had
to take out ghouls. I guess the last couple of checkpoints were too
simplistic because of that, although I needed to constantly save game
cuz I thought I needed as much health and armor as I could retain
(didn’t realize how close I was to the end), so I ended the game with
160 health, 100 armor, and half the amount of sidearm bullets I could
carry.

Probably the best feature was "reflex time", which was extremely
cool…sometimes wish I had used it more often. However, a cool attack
feature I never utilized was melee, although I was a recipient of melee
numerous times.

Finding out who I was at the end of the game was so much of a surprise, I didn’t think I was correct. Had to hit the wiki page just to be sure.

It reminded me of the original Half-Life, and how much fun and
"creepiness" I had with that game. Except that F.E.A.R. had a much
better soundscape to lure you in. And some scenes were really kinda
disturbing, stuff I’ve never expected from a game…movies, sure, but
not games.

Might try out the multiplayer next. Or perhaps I should just move on to the next game, there are so many more I want to play…
