Default Fear Multiplayer is boring



I heard so many good things about the Multiplayer too. I got on last night and it was too easy to kill people, as well as too easy for them to kill me. There was no challenge whatsoever... and nowhere to run to. Basically if someone was in my sights, they were dead. If someone was ever behind me even for a split second, i was dead. HalfLife Deathmatch is even better than this.... well actually i liked Halflife2 deathmatch

dunno, i enjoyed the MP demo but saved my money for q4.

i like that its fast paced, and its got good air control. you have to stock up on medkits, and when i go into firefights i'm always tapping my med button along with moving and killing. i can usually get in the top 3 pretty easily. i do like they have the particle gun (ie railgun) one the one map, easy ownage with that.

but it seems fairly plain to q4, q4 does the straight dm/tdm/ctf best, imo

Fear MP is great. One of my favs. I have gotten really good at it and am usually at the top.

Yeah the multiplayer does suck a bit. I get all my multiplayer kicks from counterstrike and call of duty.

i'm usually in the top 3... but its like what Captain Kill said... its just way too easy. There is absolutely no strategy. If you are a good aim you will win. Thats why i like Quake 3. Believe it or not there is tons of strategy for that game.... without all the extra BS that Unreal Tournament adds(double jump, side jump, super up jumpers,etc)

I think there is a decent amount of strategy involved. You need to use the slowmo at the right time, and know where the choke points are. I love quake3 also, but I don't think it needs much more strategy than Fear MP.

FEAR has an excellent single player. Well worth buying. Just don't expect anything from the multiplayer

I must admit, I'm enjoying Quake 4 MP a lot more, mainly because they have this awesome thing called "Tourney" mode; basically, you're in this server with about 8-14 people and you have a tournament. There's brackets and everything. And each server has about 4 different arenas so everyone can participate in the tournament at once, it's great to work on your 1v1 skills.
