Expect a true sequel to the previous two games, and feel disappointment.
Approach it as a, say, side story made by a different team (which it is) and enjoy a solid, fun, action-packed FPS that is great both on your own and with friends.
It's not scary, although it tries to be at times, but atmospheric enough to hide the very much arcady shooting mechanics. That said, these mechanics are fantastic, and as a shooter FEAR 3 is highly enjoyable and, to my surprise, easily replayable.
It's also hands down one of the best linear coop experiences you'll have in an FPS in terms of variety and coordination.
The multiplayer oozes with original and fun ideas which sadly made it into game modes that didn't last long before the community died out, but if you have at least 3 friends who are into this game, get them together and have a blast in the surprisingly innovative multiplayer.
It's been 4 years but FEAR 3 remains a highly enjoyable experience to this day. And if, like me, you were slightly disappointed with how FEAR2 turned out in relation to FEAR1, the third installment won't be MUCH of a disappointment, but rather a great time waster - be it alone or with friends.
Get it. Just remember that it's not what its predecessors were.
