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.

Well, from where i start?
Well, i was looking for half life mods moddb, horror mods as always, and i have see Cry of Fear.

i downloaded it and after playing and playing, i got my review:

Cry of Fear it's not just a mod, it's a fear simulator. The atmosphere it's so scary, making you feel that something gonna jump at you any moment. You got weapons, but, even armed, you feel like a baby seeking for your mother. Full of depression, guilt and suicide, you feel like you are the main character, fighting the fears of you life and the sins of your past.

The monsters are the most disturbing things that i have seen. MY GOD, I GONNA HAVE NIGHTMARES FOR WEEKS. Awesome.

And the custom campaigns of the game make you want to play more,more, and more.

To the team: awesome work! i loved the mod.

Lots of endings. I love that.

That's it. Have been a pleasure to play this awesome game/mod.

SO............... 10/10

Good bye (Sorry for bad english, i'm brazileiro)

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.

So Awesome

It like if it were a clasic horror game, but it´s new! So well done, exelent graphics, exellent programing and animation! Too bad im a pussy and i can´t play it alone u.u

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!

Just epic :D

Шt's incredibly detailed and elaborate game that from the first minute makes you forget that this is a mod for HL1
scary to shiver and really great game

It can be better in graphics , now its wonderful but can be super wonderful!!

Good game bros, make me **** brigs

Good mod.
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!
