The gameplay is where the game really shines. It mixes an adventure game with a stealth based game and a little bit of a FPS. Most of the time though, your main task is to avoid the alien. This monster is restless and it is going to constantly hunt you. Soon you are going to realize that the creators introduced a really interesting AI engine in their game.
Not only is the alien capable of using an elaborate strategy to catch you by surprise. It is also capable of learning your moves. In other words, if you are constantly hiding in lockers then sooner or later alien is going to realize that. Then, during the next encounter the first place he is going to search for you, will be a locker.
Besides alien you are also going to fight other enemies, like androids. You can use a really simple, yet interesting crafting system to be able to gain an advantage against your enemies. Trust us, you are going to be forced to craft a lot of items to even stand a chance. Since FEAR series you have never seen such intelligent computer-controlled enemies.
