You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do "they" come from? What has happened? Are you just turning insane? The time is up; you can't stay there reading your smses forever. It's time to head out and find the answers. Cry of Fear is a singleplayer modification of Half-Life 1 which brings you the horror you've always been afraid of. It's a total conversion of Half-Life 1, which means it uses NO Half-Life 1 content or other peoples' files. It's all made exclusively by the developers. It also uses new gaming styles that you will rarely find in Half-Life mods, such as advanced cutscenes and other stuff that will be revealed at a later date.
Great concecp and design, although you just decided this otherwise perfect mod with some frustating levels such as the platform in nightmare subway and the escape from the crashed train. The latter in particular is bugged like hell, you get stucked everywhere and it is very frustrating. You should fix the bus window part too because it took me 10 minutes to jump out lol :D
I liked the Silent Hill-like atmosphere, the soundtrack gives me the shivers every time and the monster concepts are really innovative and original. The story is also very absorbing.
This game is great! After just played an hour I found it the best mod that has been made on Steam!
I haven't played through the whole game yet. But so far, really good and well-timed scares has popped up out of nowhere and scared the s**t out of me.
And also, the game has been made in such a way that I thought was impossible with the source engine. The inventory and the pickup function was great. With that, you can't just run around with all weapons and items in the game. Instead you sometimes need to spare up inventory for other things and drop useless things if you don't need them.
And also, the graphics are also very well made. And also it is not too well made either, which, in my oppinion, is a good thing. Sometimes, too well made graphics just make things lag, and makes the game unplayable. That's why i am happy with the default graphics.
For short: I gave it a 10/10
It's so good that I don't know where to begin. Honestly. What I can say is that I think it turned from horror to action-horror a bit too fast. A game isn't scary when you've too many weapons with too much power. Make us have only melee longer! And maybe not the assault rifle and the hunter rifle.
Best mod I've ever played.
Ta gra jest przerażająca i to w każdym znaczeniu tego słowa. Przerażająca nie tylko dlatego, że co jakiś czas wyskakuje nam banda potworów spod ziemii a my dostajemy palpitacji serca, ale przede wszystkim dlatego, że pokazuje, do czego może doprowadzić się osamotniony człowiek pogrążony w depresji, smutku i własnym, wewnętrznym świecie. Każde z zakończeń poraża swoją mocą. Szacunek dla Teamu Psykskallar za przeogromny wysiłek, który włożyli w ten projekt i nawet nie biorą za niego nawet centa. Rozbudowali silnik Half-Life'a niemal do granic możliwości, stworzyli tyle nowych tekstur i napisali tak niesamowitą muzykę, że sporo płatnych produkcji mogłoby się powstydzić brakiem tak doskonałego soundtracku. Kto grał, ten wie o czym piszę. Kto nie grał - niech biegiem zakłada konto Steam i pobiera ten tytuł. Na pewno się nie zawiedzie.
Cry of Fear = The best first person horror mod you can find (now it's a game on steam, but that's ok xD) I rated this 9 out of 10 because this mod is just insanely incredible, such passion put into a game, I have not seen before! I chose 9 out of 5 things I focus on when reviewing, it's Quality, Scares, Length, Lag and Story (atmosphere and stuff like that is included in the Quality!)
Quality: What can you say about CoF!? It's the most epic first person horror mod you can find! AND IT'S FREE! Never have I seen such passion in a horror game before in my entire life! The atmosphere is creepy all the time, introduction is awesome, graphics looks badass for it's time! Voice-acting is pretty good to be swedish ;) I love how you can turn your weapons into different possitions, that's something you dont see in many games/mods! Well done, pat yourselves on the back, you deserve it! BIG 10! Scares: Starter scare got me at least xD When it first scares you it doesn't stop :P twisted game xD big 9! Length: I have seen most people having 30-35 episodes up of this mod (and it's kind of a mod, but it's a game :D) Lag: Experienced some lag, but I think it's because it's very new to steam and has a few bugs and my antivirus probably interfering with it, other than that, big 9! Story: Crazy story indeed, not gonna have spoilers, but I love the story, get home and I'd like to say more, but I dont wanna spoil it for others! BIG 10!
Quality: 10 - Scares: 9 - Length: 9 - Lag: 9 - Story: 10 once again, tied between 3 games xD Well done, the best horror mod you can find is here!
