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.
Its a bit like Resident Evil in first person. The story is genuinely interesting, I actually care about Simon's well being. There's some great puzzles and the combat is an improvement over the original Half-Life. Ammo is sparse and has to be well rationed on the hard difficulty, which is what I played on.
I recommend playing Afraid of Monsters Director's Cut as well. Its just as good.
Scary and atmospheric game, it's much better than Nightmare House 2 for more technological and andvanced Source Engine, it just beats it at all! Somewhat CoF reminds me the epic Silent Hill series. I played Silent Hill, and I dreamed for a such game but with first-person view. And now my dream realized... Thank you, guys!
Will be it possible to some big problems I have?
- Lan playing is difficult, we must use steam friendship to do that
- We can't see internet servers
- Why the 2D menu hasn't as options as the 3D one? It is confusing
- Sometimes the game crashes on multiplayer
Thanks to fix all theses problems!
