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.
Best HL1 mod ever released to date.
Liked: Mechanics (inventory management, lights), gameplay, story, graphics, sdk, coop, general style and feel; all these were hands down amazing for gold source.
Didn't like: monsters (felt they lacked originality, expected a bit more from devteam), simple and some what predictable jumpscares.
Note: Veteran of horror games
What can I say?
Oh, right, this:
Cry Of Fear was a scary game. However, the story was actually depressing and dark. It went into the mind of a man who had lost so much, and had then traveled into his insanity. It was gripping and psychotic, but made you think. The main Character was a man who had lost quite a bit. A man who was depressed and nearly did get his wish of death, only to be stopped. It lets you in on their insanity, and allows you to see what someone with nothing can become, and shows you their struggle on trying to escape this darkness and become the person they once were.
I actually cried at the end.
I am giving 9/10, because the game has some great maps and sounds, but some kind of feeling is missing, but otherwise it's totally great.
I had problems with launcher (it didn't run at all) but I tried to finish the game, but I got stuck in the city. I almost ****** my pants.
It's one of the best horror game I've ever played, it is really well directed and has a wonderful horror atmosphere.
Maybe the Gold Source is a little bit old and there are some minor bugs in the game, but nothing really annoying or that can ruin the gameplay.
Loved the ambients and the sounds, maybe some extra effort is still needed with some models and textures.
This game will scare you for sure and keeps the tension very high in most moments.
Also it's free ! So if you'd like a good horror game, and not always the same slenderman clone, try this game out you wont regret the time you will spend on Cry of Fear.
