The first time i played Cry of Fear , i was curious to discover what i would find , the game is Much more longer than i thought it's supposed to be , if your goal is to finish the game 100% , you will not be disappointed .
Cry of fear has got a very basic engine , half life 1 engine , but the devs made the game extremly long , it is a pure part of awesomeness to me , cry of fear took me 24h (pure gaming) to finish it once , then you unlock some items , my first thought was to check out what's left ... it was just 10% completed.
You will do the game Five times , one in easy difficulty , so you can learn the controls , explore the area at his maximum , it is probably the longest part . (yes there is something longer than that)
The second time , Normal difficulty , the enemies are a bit stronger and the game a bit rough , but you still can make it through . the game will be shorter because you already know the area. ~19hours
The third and Fourth times , i HIGHLY recommend to do it on hard mode , to prepare yourself to face the Nightmare Mode , which is the game at his hardest difficulty. you beat the game twice on hard mode , then you'll be ready to the nightmare mode.
The fifth time , you play the game as Nightmare mode , this time , the enemies are x2 stronger , x2 harder you are x2 weaker , your weapons are x2 weaker too , this is the pure definition of a nightmare , it is almost impossible , i spent alot alot alot of time playing it , it also allow only Five ♥♥♥♥ing saves , you will do 4 chapters , then you will save once , then 4 chapters after , over and over again. i swear , this is ♥♥♥♥ing torture , i applause everyone who succeed to made it through.
Yes , there is a special mode and special unlocks , such as :
-The Doctor's Mode : this is the second Nightmare mode : but this time , the goal is not to kill zombies , it is mostly to avoid them , you have like 36 revolver ammo (yes , only a revolver) for 500 enemies , ALL enemies , such as zombies , strangers , shooters , crawlers , head-boomers , flying beds , Giants , Twitchers , human flower , etc... you'll have to make it through and finish the mode , to get the Nightvision , which is very cool in the main campain.
-The camera of death : beat the game under 2h30 and you'll get the camera which freezes all the enemies over. it is ♥♥♥♥ing cool.
-David Leatherhoff's Axe ; get the secret package to the mailbox , then go to the 5th ending , insert the 10 numbers code , and then you'll get the axe.
-FAMAS G1 : Pure Awesomeness Gun , that's probably the coolest gun you'll ever have in the game , but 0% accuracy , haha
-Hoodies , beat the 5 endings , beat all the difficulties , beat the game a final sixth time , you'll have all the hoodies , which is awesome !!!
Have fun with Cry of Fear , this is one of the best games i ever played , :D
