Just as I F.E.A.R.E.D. -- A console port!

  • Summary: What can I say that others haven't said? Nothing much, but F.E.A.R. 2 is a let down, and it's supposed to be a sequel. I was insulted on how dumbed-down the graphics, the gameplay and enemy AIs were. The graphics are what really ticked me off, although the original F.E.A.R.

  • Summary: Was sooo looking forward to this release, replayed all the previous FEAR games, then put in FEAR 2 (after all the agonizing steaming pile of crap steam BS) got to it. What the hell, no saving the game in play, not quick or manual,only bs check-points.

Mediocre followup port

Adam Webb, Amazon
15 January 2010
  • Summary: I really loved FEAR and had high expectations for FEAR2, and was very let down. First of all, it doesn't look any better, and possibly looks worse than the first one. The AI is ridiculously dumbed down, and you can tell there was little work put into the PC version.

Sighs

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The F.E.A.R. games just get worse as each new one comes out. FEAR 2 was a giant step back. Bah.. all pc games are moving backwards for that matter. "lazy porting For The Win" this is the game developers new moto. I have spent near 100 bucks on fear games and best part from all of them is free..
  • Pros: - Well.. it was kinda fun I guess. - The new sniper rifle was cool. It's the only good weapon they ever added since the original game.
  • Cons: - Steam *farts* - They got rid of leaning!!! Dumb move. - No more capture the flag in multiplayer.. just some poop flag game that I seen. - HUD and film grain effect.. common u lazy port noobs! - Could not bind the side buttons in game on deathadder.. for real? - Same old lag spike when game save...

ok game but not as good as the original

Shemar, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, the game requires Steam, so for those that have problems with that or would like to be able to lend or resell their game, stay away. I would not have bought the game, had I known this. Lesson learned; now I check the DRM scheme of every game before bying it.

Dissapointed

M. W. Stonebraker, Amazon
17 May 2009
  • Summary: Through no fault of the seller, the game cannot be played. The manufacturer (Steam) offers only one security code per product. Once it's used the software is useless to anybody else. If there's a solution to this I'd like to hear about it.

Console Port Trash

P. L. Mai "Phil Miller", Amazon
18 April 2009
  • Summary: This review is for the pc version which most review sites are too lazy to provide separately and have lumped them together with the console version. This game is 2.5 stars at best which is considered average. Where to start? The original was a milestone in terms of graphics and AI.

Not fun, and a big disappointment

Olumayowa Oladunni Teriba, Amazon

  • Summary: For 2004, the first F.E.A.R. game was a bombshell. But if you go back and play it, you see repetitive level design, drab color schemes, unintelligible story lines (reading it's Wikipedia page is more forthcoming with story points).

FEAR2?

Anonymous, Newegg
2 April 2009
  • Summary: I do not know what they were thinking when they "threw" the multi-player together. It plays nothing like the first fear multi. It is all wrong. They have taken what WAS a fantastic title and reduced it to ashes. Game play in single player is ok.
  • Pros: GRaphics on single player look very good.
  • Cons: Steam? Are you kidding me? No leaning? And the "multiplayer" looks and plays like garbage. Very "toonish" and the maps have absolutely no creativity. It seems like it was "slapped" together as an afterthought. IT LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN THE SINGLE PLAYER??!!! Whoever came up with this "ne...
