Description for Cold Fear (Xbox) (Video Games)
Prolific French publishers Ubisoft are back with another offering, the survival horror title Cold Fear on Xbox, PS2 and PC, developed by Darkworks. In Cold Fear, players take control of Tom Hansen, a veteran coastguard with a heroic past tainted with disgrace, who boards a seemingly abandoned ship during an Arctic Storm. But this is no Marie Celeste. The blood on the ship's decks signals the occurrence of something very unpleasant indeed. As Tom makes his way around the decidedly not deserted boat, he will encounter evil, intelligent enemies far more terrifying than anything from his darkest dreams.
Cold Fear sets out to be as atmospheric and jump-inducing as the latest Hollywood horror thriller. Set on a ship buffeted in stormy arctic waters, it looks to be in the vein of a Resident Evil, or a Silent Hill, brought to a new and innovative setting. The game promises that the strange, dynamic environment allows for a number of new gameplay features
