When the daughter of a powerful Chinese businessman disappears into the hedonistic and dangerous Shan Xi Protectorate under mysterious circumstances, your team of mercenaries infiltrate the city and attempt to reach her first, hoping to leverage her safety for a sizeable pile of cash.

You will have to search, destroy and fire-fight your way through the chaos of an alternate reality China and it’s inhabitants. Along the way you will be constantly challenged by the henchmen of the girl’s father. They have no intention of letting you get to her first. Unfortunately, what begins as a mercenary snatch and grab to retrieve a young runaway, instead becomes a mission more perilous and important than any you could have imagined.

Taking control of your mercenaries, you must discover the truth behind the seemingly innocent girl, Wee Ming (stop sniggering at the back!). She is hiding a secret so terrible that many people will die before it is revealed. If you are to succeed, you’ll need to find Wee Ming (right, that’s it, see me after class) and stay alive long enough to collect your reward. Well, that’s the plan. Whether things actually work out that way is another thing.

Spread across a jewel case-busting four discs, Fear Effect is an atmospherically charged and genuinely creepy experience, with a nod or two in the direction of the Resident Evil series. If you’re in a dangerous mood, and fancy kicking some arse whilst sneaking around in the dark, this title is definitely up your dimly-lit street.
