Riguardo questo gioco

Cry of Fear is a psychological single-player and co-op horror game set in a deserted town filled with horrific creatures and nightmarish delusions. You play as a young man desperately searching for answers in the cold Scandinavian night, finding his way through the city as he slowly descends into madness. With a strong emphasis on cinematic experience, immersion and lateral thinking, players will be taken on a nightmare rollercoaster-ride through the grim streets of Fäversholm and beyond. Not everything is as it seems...

Cry of Fear originally started out as a Half-Life 1 modification, set in the same vein as the classic survival horror games of old. 4 years in the making and picking up several modding awards on the way, it is now a free, standalone game for anyone to enjoy. Beware though, it's not for the faint of heart.

Key Features:

  • Huge single-player campaign with over 8 hours of gameplay
  • Multiple endings and over 20 different unlockables to keep you playing
  • Full length co-op campaign with up to 4 players
  • Strong modding support with 12 custom campaigns and examples included, with requests from modding community listened to and implemented
  • Terrifying and unforgettable atmosphere
  • 24 different and unique weapons to choose from
  • Unlockable extra campaign after beating single-player
  • Original soundtrack comprises over 5 hours of haunting, melodic music

Inizio dicendo che, per il fatto che sia gratis, vale la pena solo provarlo una mezz'ora.

PRO:
-atmosfera, sonoro e soprattuto i MOSTRI creano tensione avvolte da attacco di cuore e molta atmosfera
-trama molto interessante e con finali differenti, con un buon fattore di rigiocabilità
-gameplay abbastanza buono
-CO-OP molto divertente e difficile in 2, ma più che possibile in 4 persone
-un alto numero di mappe e piccole campagne aggiuntive (es. la campagna del Dottore) che aumentano la longevità
-vari achievements e premi del gioco da usare come oggetti nel gioco (es. fotocamera)

CONTRO
-grafica in alcuni casi inspiegabilmente pesante
-ci sono delle, chiamiamole "ingennuità" nel gameplay, come il fatto che tenere torcia e pistola non ti permette di ricaricare
-in alcuni casi il single player diventa estremamente difficile
-il CO-OP con 2 persone dà troppe difficoltà, specialmente per il fatto che se non usi HAMACHI, ti puoi scordare la cooperativa, dato che senza suddetto programma i server non funzionano
-nonostante la trama sia più che interessante, i protagonisti secondo me sono quasi inutili

Come già detto, per il fatto che è gratis, con la campagna di 15 ore circa di durata e una bella cooperativa, tanto vale provarlo.

VOTO: 7,5 (sappiate che potrebbe essere molto difficile il gioco)

Quando i miei amici mi chiesero di scaricare Cry of Fear per giocare in multiplayer non ero molto convinto.Ma mi sbagliavo completamente.Il gioco era in origine una mod del capolavoro Half-Life;quindi ne sfrutta il motore grafico.

PRO:
-La storia piuttosto triste e intrigante,coinvolgente.
-Gameplay molto buono.
-Multiplayer in 4 giocatori in cui il gioco di squadra è neccessario,altrimenti non si và avanti.

CONTRO:
-Nonostante sia un gioco horror a me personalmente ha fatto paura non proprio spessissimo,sopratutto per il fatto che porti con te armi da fuoco (es. anche Dead Space non mi ha fatto molta paura mentre Amnesia e Outlast in cui le armi sono assenti ti fanno sobbalzare molte volte)
-Un altro elemento che non gradisco è la presenza di molte munizioni.Il giocatore porta con se le armi, ma avrei preferito che le munizioni scarseggiassero, per fare si che il giocatore le debba gestire e magari scappare in determinate situazioni anzichè uccidere tutti.Stessa cosa vale per le siringhe di energia.

Voto: 8/10

Lo consiglio a tutti anche perchè è un f2p, ma non uno di quelli fatti col ♥♥♥♥.Il multiplayer è particolare, C'è bisogno di hamachi.Ceracate su youtube come fare, non è difficile.

Per finire devo dire che a me piacerebbe una nuova versione: Ad esempio con motore grafico source ( ma di Half-Life 2 ); un multiplayer ben fatto ( senza il bisogno di Hamachi ) ;qualche bug risolto e nuove animazioni.

Have you ever wanted to have your pants filled up with your own poo? Now you can, for free!

Cry of fear is a Psychological First Person Shooter Survival Horror and is one of the SCARIEST games I have ever played! It isn't one of your average cheesey horror games. Cry of fear is a game where you never know what to expect around the corner. It could be a chainsaw maniac that wants to chop off your head or a mental deranged child wanting to kill you. Even though sometimes the enemies get repeated in some sections there are always fresh jumpscares that make up for it.

The Good/The Bad

Good
  • Scary unlike other horror games
  • Unpredictable
  • The game is around 8 hours long (plenty of jumpscares!)
  • It's got co-op so you can crap yourself with your friends
  • Free!

Bad
  • Outdated graphics
  • Sometimes buggy (not often, very rare)
  • Some sections of the game are unforgiving (lots of enemies, not much ammo)
  • Can be too scary for some (not recomemded for young children)
  • Co-op sometimes doesn't work (very good when it does)

    Verdict

    Sounds 8/10
    Graphics 5/10 (uses half life 1 engine)
    Gameplay 8/10
    Atmosphere 10/10

    Overall Score
    9/10
    "Fantastic, Frightning
    and Free"


    Cry of Fear is a highly recomended game for anyone who likes a truly scary game and a bit of a challenge as well. It's free, so what are you waiting for? Get Cry of Fear NOW!

Best part is the limited inventory, youre forced to leave stuff behind in order to proceed, game is very generous with the ammo but lets face you, youll need more than ammo.

Likes:
I like that it had a different campaign for solo and multiplayer. Also that the multiplayer version was a continue of the first version. I LOVE that there was a survival mode. I liked that there were parts that weren't even meant to scare the player, yet they did. I like how the game had a good storyline. I also love that it was free! The game even ran well (most of the time) on my bad laptop! The game had some scary parts, but was not overly-abusive about the jumpscares and other scary stuff...

Dislikes:
I wish there was a create-your-own survival mode, even though I can understand that is back-breakingly hard to do... I at least wish the creator would've put more effort into the survival mode, making it easier in some way or less repetitive. The solo and multiplayer campaigns were VERY fun! However, there were some parts that annoyed me half to death. Some of the jump puzzles, the enemies that one shot you (sometimes), and least importantly... the enemy movement...
I'm currently STUCK on the first part of chapter six with an annoying jump-puzzle... It's annoying! I also wish there was an item, or something, that would give you more inventory space.

Overall:
The game was VERY good! There were some parts that were annoying and some things I wish existed, but with what the game has, it's GREAT!!! I give it 4.25 golden stars that don't exist anywhere, but my mind, but that counts for something ;)
-P.S. I want more...

Cry of Fear is simply the best Half-Life mod I have ever played, with the exception of Counter-Strike back in the day. This game shouldn't even be classified as a mod in my opinion. The engine has been utilized so well that there is little resemblence to the look of Half-Life.

Story:

The story of Cry of Fear is worth experiencing for sure. I like the mystery aspects to the story and your character's journey in figuring out what's going on. There are many WTF moments, which I like in survival horror games. Plus, there are mutliple endings, so the replay value is decent. I don't want to give anything away, so you willl have to check it out yourself. Definitely plays with the mind and is more of a psychological horror thriller than a straight up jump scare horror game, which in my opinion makes for a much more interesting experience.

Gameplay:

This game truly is survival horror and the designers understand how to make the player feel like every resource is valuable. Similar to games like the early Bioharzard (Resident Evil) or Silent Hill games, items like firearms, ammunition, light sources, health, etc. all become scarce quickly if not rationed correctly and you always feel relieved to find more. There are times where I decided to sprint past enemies instead of trying to take them out since I didn't have enough ammunition or they were heavy in numbers. Speaking of enemies, there is a decent variety to them and they are creepy as hell. The animations make them very disturbing, and the sound effects that belong to each of them unnerve your senses. As for the objectives, they are usually pretty simple for the most part. There is a lot of back tracking, but it does make sense within the story, so it didn't really become annoying. There were some areas where I got confused on where to go, but to me, this helps the experience more than hindering it. I don't always want to be told where to go or what to do so directly. Survival horror games should make you think for yourself. Most games lack this aspect. The firearms feel much more realistic than most games. They have some serious recoil and the accuracy is fairly similar to the real thing, at least from my limited experience.

Graphics:

The game is very well polished for being built on such an old engine compared to the new ones. There are many details on the characters and enemies that bring out their personalities or lack thereof. Since this is a FPS with third person cutscenes mostly, the hands and weapons look very realistic. Very good details, especially on the firearms. The animations are done very well and the designers really didn't try to shortcut anything. Lighting, color, post processing, water, textures, etc. were all done very well, especially for a free game. The only gripe I feel anyone can make is only because of how old the engine is for the game, so obviously the polygon count isn't nearly as high as modern games. The settings are very detailed and make you feel like you are there in Sweden, which is where the game takes place. You are mostly in an urban environment, cautiously going through the streets, alleys, sewers, parks, buildings, etc. However, there are some other settings such as the forest and suburban areas.

Overall:

This game has accomplished everything it set out to do in my opinion. The sound design and music compliment the harsh disturbing atmosphere and really creeps you out, especially when you don't know what's around the next corner. The graphics are great for the resources used, the gameplay is true survival horror, and it's FREE!!! So, sit back, turn the lights off, turn up the volume, have a weapon near you along with a change of pants if need be, and enjoy this game. I would pay money to play this game, let's leave it at that.

My review is based on playing the single player only. I did not play through any other game mode. There is a co-op mode and a survivor mode as well, adding some more replay value.

5/5

Swedish FPS Horror at its finest. Better than most AAA horror games nowadays.

If you liked this, you should also consider trying Afraid of Monsters: Director's Cut, a Half-Life mod on Moddb, made by the same guy.

Cry of Fear is kind of like Afraid of Monsters, except slower paced, less paranormal stuff, has an inventory and dual wielding system, etc.
As well as most notably, a new coat of paint on the GoldSource engine, so the visuals are pretty slick this time around.

So you wake up in an alley way, probably from being wasted, or maybe someone mugged you and punched your lights out, gotta find a way home.

You soon find out that there is hammer wielding maniacs and other... things.. running about and wreaking havoc on your face.

Did the local insane asylum break loose? Was an evil portal opened up by the local madman? Could I possibly pull out any more random excuses out of my ♥♥♥ to make this review any more mediocre?

Well you'll just have to play the damn game to find out!

8/10, would get spooked and run low on memory and crash again.

Cry of Fear is a free but very great horror game. The main character is Simon who does not know how he found himself in a deserted town which has been overrun by strange monster. Our goal is to survive but also to solve a mysterious riddle. To defeat the monsters we have a melee weapons and a guns. You will kill a lot of monsters but also you are must to fight with the powerfull bosses. The game has a very atmospheric music but also have a custom stories and cooperation mode. My rating is a 9/10.

This to me is the scariest game on steam, I have played through almost all of it (around 8 hours, good length story). The only other game I could comapare this to "scary-wise" is PT the Silent Hills teaser on PS4. This game plays much differently than PT of course. The lore and atmosphere is so creepy and the character models, while not very detailed, are still horrifying. The little notes you pick up throughout the game will make you cringe and wonder, "what kind of creep made this game?". There are some puzzles which are moderately challenging and the combat isnt by any means great but thats not why you play this game. You play it to see if you have what it takes, to see if you can last the whole ride.

-Gameplay 7/10
-Horror 10/10
