Just bought it on Steam over the sales. PLaying through it now. I'm on Chapter 7 (where you're in the office looking for the girl Wade or something)

It's pretty dang fun, and looks good considering it's 10 years old. My only complaint is that all the enemies are bullet sponges, and the game throws so many at you.

And then you have special enemies like the armored guys who take up a shit ton of bullets. The good thing is that you can take out their legs and just pop off a few shots at them.

The worst enemy I've encountered so far are those fucking flying drones that shoot lasers at you. Wtf is up with those? The lasers eat right through your armor and they fire fast as shit. They're bullet sponges too, so you can't really take them down fast.
>>
>>322868940
I fucking hated this guys.
The only way to kill them is hide behind a wall with a shotgun and when they get near slow mo.
>>
>>322868098
what exactly do other games in the series have to do with it? are you really that desperate for talking points?
>>
>>322868647
It's really overrated on /v/. Most people see it as an average shooter with spooks, and thats precisely what it is. It's not unreal or quake, its not doom or serious sam, it's not even halo by any chance, is just an ok game which some nice details like good ai and gunplay but thats about it.

If a series doesn't have much to offer but one good game maybe the series didn't had that much to offer in the first place? I mean even the first FEAR starts getting repetitive after you are fighting "not generic commando guys" in yet another office building for the 15th time. Again, it's not "underated" by any chance, it has its right place.
>>
>>322869756
>Shooting at a leg
They start moving very slowly, and try to hid behind cover while calling for help.
>Shooting at hand
They start to held their weapon with one hand which usually doesn't end well.

Dismembering kills instantly
>>
>>322866979
This game fucking ruled.
>>
>>322870010
Why do you thing the picture represents the whole series? It represents the one fucking game.

I realize that you want to bait people by showing that you are a "hardcoar" gaymer who played quake, serious sam etc but it has nothing to do with FEAR's quality.

Also half-life 2 < FEAR

>Also half-life 2 < FEAR
Not really. Good gunplay doesn't make out for having the most repetitive enviroments and enemies in the history of shooters, you just sound like the typical hipster that wants to pretend his "okay-ish" but and not very well known game is some kind of undiscovered, underappreciated gem, instead of recognizing that maybe peope just didn't find it that good.
>>
>>322870429
Funeral home is my fave bit of Extraction Point. One of them, anyway, the end sequence is bueno.
>>
>>322870323
With that gun that shoots bit metal rods, it takes me about 3 shots. With the assault rifle it takes 2-3 bursts to bring them down with headshots. If you take them down before they see you, it only takes 1 bullet, but once you take one down, the other 4-5 in the area go into alert. Ammo isn't a problem, but I just hate letting my armor or health get low during firefights, because I have no idea what I'm going to be facing in another couple seconds. Now that I have to kill those fucking lazer drones, I need all the armor and medkits I can carry because those lasers just zap me down to 0 super quick.
>>
>>322870429
Nice. I actually completed the game on extreme.
I am now halfway the Perseus Mandate, and the ninjas with grenade launchers are fucking hard.

If I remember correctly the laser drones are part of the run away sequence, where you need to get to floor level or something. You're supposed to run to the stairs

72 critic score on Metacritic.

lazorbots are bullshit just rush underneath them in slow-mo and blast it with a shotgun

AR in FEAR is bretty gud with that 45 round magazine

Literaly fighting the same carbines over and over again, zombies with crabs on their heads and "boss" fights(alien helicopter and 3 leged thing)

The only inovation it has is it's physics, which fear had too.
>>
>>322870732
It has very good melee combat, but thats about it. It's not overated.

FEAR has a lot more replayability to me. HL2 felt like hopping from set piece to set piece with puzzles in between. While set pieces are cool the first time, they aren't that interesting afterwards.

IX was a bad Final Fantasy. It had absolutely terrible equipment, skill, and ability systems that allowed no room for players to shape their characters in any way. The trance system going off outside of your control was even worse designed than VIII's limit spamming. The combat was slow and boring and the only interesting mechanic AT ALL was the dynamic between Steiner and Vivi, and it didn't really add anything to the game at all. It had a terribly boring setting that's only praised by "classic fans" because it didn't emphasize sci-fi, completely disregarding that Final Fantasy has used sci-fi elements from the start of the series. Your cast consisted of characters like Freya who were completely forgotten by the plot after their usefulness to the story was up, characters like Quina who basically just showed up whenever the game felt you needed a 4th party member and didn't do ANYTHING of any relevance, and characters like Amarant who I'm still trying to figure out why he was added to the game. The protagonist and antagonist being "space alien grim reaper brothers" is by far the worst plot twist in the series, much worse than either the orphanage in VIII or "You're a dream Teedus" could ever hope to be.

The worst part of all? In a series that's known for its innovation in its genre, Final Fantasy IX bitched out and actively BACKTRACKED to boring, outdated, mechanics. At least the early games it was a callback to were innovations of their time like the ATB system in IV, and at least for the PSX titles VII, VIII, and Tactics all tried to do new things with turn-based RPGs, storytelling, and world building even if it didn't please everyone- whereas IX actively decided to say fuck that, and appeal to idiots who want video games to stagnate.

It was boring and had nothing unique going for it. In fact, nothing about the game is particularly memorable. It has no sense of identity for itself and just takes after previous titles.

Be warned, that's the civilian version and it has a single-stack magazine well. You have to widen it yourself if you want it to accept STANAG dimension magazines. They neutered the shit out of that thing, it takes a bit of work before it's not a huge turd.

Nothing as fun as just fucking slamming shit up with one of those walkers. Seriously, the amount of shit you could pull to destroy buildings was amazing and it doesn't bog you down with the story, at all, even the intro is incredibly short before you are unleashed upon the EDF

Ended up spending more time in that than GTA5.
Something just 'clicked', the re-released version was lightyears ahead of the shitty clunky G4WL version which seemed to have that horrible mouselook emulation patched over the console controls, where the mouse appears to move in 5 pixel increments.

To contribute: pic related

The shooting is hella solid, the graphics and setting are mind-blowing, co-op is fun, and the crafting has a lot of range once you get the hang of it. If you play like an action title with horror elements the disappointment fades into the background.
