About This Game

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

This game seems great to be going great, but has a major bug. This game will occasionally crash at random on my computer. This can be very frustrating. Until the bug is fixed, this game is almost unplayable.

Garbage. Doesn't have correct screen resolutions, when you even choose the highest it's so damn smooshed that you can't read the text. Also, for whatever reasons, the idiots who made this game decided it would be a good idea to make the sensitivity on your left different from your right. Don't waste any space on this garbage cancer.

I got only one thing to say. I played the first 30 minutes and I felt mentally desecrated.

Awesome game. Technically superior, well-designed gameplay, frightening atmosphere. Has online coop. Did I mention it's free?

And as someone who's been treated for a depressive episode, I can relate and the story of the protagonist is plausible.

This game is a very interesting and fun game to play, though you have to get the patch for the game, it is still fun to not only play through the story but to get all the endings and get all of the collectables, as well as beating the game on the hardest difficulty, now while the multiplayer is present, the server browser is unable to find servers normally but there are other ways around it. But overall the game is fun and gave me some occasional scares and constantly made me paranoid for the next enemy or boss, if there was ever a sequel for this game, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Damned I lost my balls, I was so afraid on the first mission.

You like horror? Then do not hesitate to play this game in a dark and quiet room after 11pm.
