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.
Once you get past the pretty Half Life 1 engine graphics and the hype, this is a pretty poor game. This game isn't really scary, all it is is just jump scares. Combat is really clunky too, weapons sound powerful but in reality don't really pack a punch. Jumping is major issue too, during the train scene is where it really shows it's flaws. Also, character development is pretty bad and is worst than Doom (which has no character development). Most of the actions that characters do makes no sense what so ever, and when a certain love interest dies, I can't help but say "Oh well". The Story is another thing that drags it down, it's too emo and makes absolutely no sense. I had a bad feeling about the story and characters when in one of the development logs, the lead developer put a gun to his head. This game suffers from the lack of actual survival horror, poor combat and jumping mechanics, horrible characters and character development, a non nonsensical story. The only reason why it's so popular is because people are sheep who can't speak for themselves, and don't realize that this is a sub par game. I respect the work and effort the developers put into this, but this game does not deserve the praise it gets.
Developers are jerks, parts of the game are broke with Multiplayer as the main problem.
Game itself was pretty good, I mean, some parts were stupid, but I liked it. Story especially.
But that's the only reason it's at a 4.
Poorley balanced combat system, laggy for a half life mod, and the
scare factor was full of cheap tricks and bad flash spawn despawn stuff.
