Cold Fear is a typical representative of survival horror genre, i.e. a dynamic action game with heavy atmosphere of fear. What is noteworthy, this is the first game of the type released by Ubisoft company. This product was developed by DarkWorks Studio known for the highly acclaimed Alone in the Dark IV: The New Nightmare.

You play as Tom Hansen, an officer of the United States Coast Guard, who is tasked with an investigation of a floating object in the Bering Strait right in the middle of the storm. The object turns out to be a Russian whaler. Upon getting onboard the protagonist finds no crew. As the story unfolds, Hansen encounters strange monsters, which seemingly have seized the entire ship. From time to time he also meets some people, most of whom try to kill him. Later, the game takes you to an equally mysterious oil rig.

Cold Fear, as befits a survival horror, is a very dynamic title. The core gameplay is combat, in which you use many types of weapons (pistols, assault rifles, and melee weapons). Intelligent and deadly (especially from up close) enemies make up a big challenge.

The game is set during the storm, which was aimed to be as realistic as possible (sudden blows of wind, continual torrential rain, huge waves getting onboard, etc). The camera takes different positions, the most common being the third person perspective. Because of brutal combat and the atmosphere of horror, Cold Fear is directed to mature audience.
