Now Playing: Cry of Fear (Mod)

Despite some irritating backtracking through levels, Cry of Fear is a finely crafted horror mod for the original Half-Life.

It’s got a lot of fun jump scares, the woods towards the end being a particular highlight. Guns and ammo are a little too easy to obtain, which lessens the tension somewhat.

The creatures also attack you in numbers too often at times which diminishes their impact. The best moment in the game for me was when I first encountered one of the ghost girls as shown on the left. I love it when a game surprises me, even in an unpleasant way.

6/10
