Horror titles can be ponderous affairs, but it looks as though there's little risk of Cold Fear going down that route. Described as an action horror game, it would seem to have more in common with the accomplished The Suffering than the increasingly plodding Silent Hill series. A healthy supply of weapons is promised, from pistols and AK47s to flamethrowers and harpoons, but ammunition is going to be at a premium.
Intriguingly, much of the game is to be set during a huge storm. One section takes place on a whaling ship, and will see your movement affected by the raging winds and lashing waves. You'll also need to grab on to the railings to improve your aim - sure to bring back happy memories of chundering cross-channel ferry users everywhere.
