has anyone noticed this 'cold fear' survival horror game meant to be coming from Ubisoft soon?

Survival horror that takes place on a ship, with lots of mutated creatures based on russian experiments.

Does this sound anything like Deep Fear to anyone but me?? That one was developed by AM7 on the tail end of the saturn's life.

Only slightly ridiculous, I find...

[edit]
also, both star blonde guys with blue shirts:
deep fear

cold fear

and note the familiar backgrounds in both pics.

the zombies are similar too: http://www.gamespot.com/saturn/action/deepfear/screenindex.html
and http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/action/coldfear/screenindex.html

anyway, CONSPIRACYLOL

How can you cynical this takes survival horror and puts it on a ship? Plus it probably uses one of the 3 Splinter Cell engines to great effect.

There was also a survival horror game for dreamcast that took place on a ship, which looks a lot like Cold Fear, but I can't remember the name of it.

Either way, I'm not interested in CF at all.

That game would be carrier... it wasnt fun at all to say the least. The game supposedly got a re-release in japan on ps2 with improved graphics and a new control scheme.

I'm more interested in "Obscure" which is a survival horror game that takes place in a high school. As long as it isn't like Siren, I'll be okay. Man, that game sucked!

So really what's the difference between a metrosexual and a homosexual?
Metrosexuals are better dressed. Homosexuals are so last season.
What role will the homosexual play in the future?
Gooseberry.

I kicked Cold Fear to the curb in a recent review. Aside from decent technical performance and a good sense of space and environment, it's got nothing. It has those generic puppet-looking physics and, well, generic everything else.

If you described the game in very basic terms you'd end up with a nearly exact description of Resident Evil 4 (europeans with parasites living in their brains try to kill you, you shoot them from over-the-shoulder perspective, protect a girl for a brief portion, find keys, cutscenes aren't intereactive here though), only you'd have to add that it kind of sucks.

The weapons and contact in particular are ultra-chumpy. Popping a head is like squishing a not particularly juicy grape, stepping on a head lacks any impact at all.

Has very cool weather effects in the beginning though. I'd rent it if I didn't have a GameCube to play RE4 and I were the president of my high school's survival horror fan club and nobody wanted to go to the movies with me, or something.

Gyahh! I knew I would be threatened when I said "Siren sucks." I spent a while playing the game, and it just didn't hold my attention. Plus, there were so many things wrong with the game that made the game "Not Fun."

Ha! Never doubt the poor schmuck who's paid to put it on the shelf. I can't tell you when good games are released, but if it's a piece of crap that will still be on the shelves two years from now, you can be damn sure that we get it on time, and that I promptly place it in its future home.

Seriously, though. We get three copies of Tekken 5 four days after the game's release, but we get five copies of this crap perfectly on time. This is life in a non-gaming store. 0_0;
