Om dette spillet

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.

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  • Outdated graphics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 it, 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

This game, like many other games, has gameplay. You can move, you can look around, and occasionally, fire a gun. It has graphics. It has lighting effects. It has a decent color pallet. It is also free to play, so you can't go wrong. It has a story unlike any other. It has enemies to combat. It also has allies that can help you on your quest. Unlike a lot of games nowadays, it has varied, thematic, set pieces. Don't let the title fool you, you won't be crying in fear, you will be crying about how amazing of an experience you've had, absolutely free, so you can save the money for passover. The movement is pretty dynamic. If you walk into a hard surface, you will stop. No longer will you have that lingering feeling that at any moment, you will fall through the floor. Oh, I forgot to mention that this game has a very engaging, and cinematic co-op experience. Each moment in co-op is unlike any other before it. You and your friends will experience a truly heart-wrenching, claustrophobic, gut-pounding, bowel movement-inducing, spoop filled catastrophe. Never has there been a more immersive co-op experience. The indie aspect truly shines throughout the many epic, magnificent, unanimous, diverse, open world realms. The only downside, and I truly regret to have to report on this, is the complete lack of an in depth character customization. Without a feature as crucial as character customization, I FEAR that this game will be overlooked by many. I CRY at the very thought that this game will go unnoticed. It is with all of my heart, that I recommend this game to everyone who enjoys a fast paced, adrenaline fueled, ride into the mind of the developers. Brace yourself for the emotional rollercoaster, and try not to CRY when you reach the end.

Wow,,This game took me by suprise..It reminded me of the old school Silent Hill days but in first person. The game is very scary,,One of the creepiest games I played. Yes the graphics are dated (Uses Source) but the sound is very good..I really liked the computer password puzzle and I think its random. Monsters creepy too..So far only one thing bugs me..Sometimes I had trouble jumping through an opening..But I got it..Best of all this game is free! To the Devs..Thank you for taking your time to make this,,I just wish you could send me new undies cause I think I filled mine..

A lot better than the last four Silent Hill games.

Cry of Fear is a video. It is also a game. A good one at that, with a few minor glitches. Overall, for a FREE horror game, it is like a gay dolphin, it blows all the other free horror games out the water.

The monsters in this game are pretty ♥♥♥♥ed up, that's what I like in a horror game. Cry of Fear engages you into it's dark atmosphere. Not only is it a mutant killing spree type of game, it has plenty of puzzles which makes this game the full package.

Highly recommend this game to FPS gamers.

10/10.
