It's OK Is About It

Veil_Lord, Amazon
8 March 2015
  • Summary: The first FEAR game was quite a bit of fun. There were little bits where it was semi-scary and they were at least shocking. They AI was good and the time slowdown effect was a nice hook. FEAR2 feels like a lesser version rather than an enhancement. It's also shorter.

Inaccurate Weapons

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: FEAR 2 pales in comparison to the first game. The game experience is marred by the accuracy of two particular weapons. The assault rifle and the SMG. That said, there are times when an overwhelming amount of ammo must be directed at your opposition. It makes the experience rather frustrating.

Fun game, but caution required.

Sunny With a Chance of Rain, Amazon

  • Summary: Caution for strong language and sexual content. That game was suspensful, and the story plot was good, but again, it is not for young audiences. This game ties in well with the first F.E.A.R. You could even play this and then the first.

NOT BAD, DIDN'T SUCK

Timothy Branik, Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: Ok, this is a steam game as you're well aware by now, what does that mean - you can't buy used or it won't work - The game is OK takes place almost entirely in an office bldg like the previous ones - there are some scary parts where you have to melee your way away from alma - other zombie/ghost...

OK

DrXenos, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: It's OK. Seems a little simplistic, almost cartoon-like, compared to the original. My biggest grip is the inability to save whenever I want to. This is one of those automatic checkpoint save type games. I hate that. Let me save when I want to!

User Review

Christopher A., Newegg
28 January 2010
  • Summary: I'd replay the first one over this for the simple fact that Project Origin allows almost no immersion into the story. The end of the campaign is weird...
  • Pros: It maintains the wonderful story from the first one. UI has been streamlined and resembles Call of Duty more than Counter Strike. Otherwise, the game engine has been improved, along with multiplayer.
  • Cons: Steam I personally didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as the first. Whereas the first was centralized around the story, Project Origin seems to have been made as an fps, with the story supporting it for some variety.

Weaker than the original

Scott Peterson "I.T. Sme", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: As with most sequels Fear 2 is a technical improvement, the appearance of a nuclear blasted city and the ghostly monsters you encounter is a sight to behold. I was even able to get passable performance on my aged 8800GT at 1680X1050 resolution.

Too short

Michael J. Cuneo, Amazon
21 July 2009
  • Summary: This would have been a great sequel to the original F.E.A.R. except it was way too short. I flew through it too quickly. If you liked F.E.A.R., you'll like this. Only problem is, it's not worth the price of a new game that was a long as the original.

Fun, but not as fun as the original

Anonymous, Newegg
3 July 2009
  • Pros: Newish weapons, much better graphics, interesting ideas on how some creatures can bring others back to life.
  • Cons: Repetitive, but I think that's the same song and dance for most, if not all FPS games. I was hoping they could raise the bar a few notches in the 'scary' factor. Condemned Criminal Origins type of scary.

still not scary for the most part.

AZ Mutley, Amazon
30 June 2009
  • Summary: FEAR 2 comes across to me like a mission pack for FEAR. It's got some weird grainy texture to the graphics, which are other wise very good. I could run it maxed out on a 2 year old vista machine with no problems. I did get a bit bored at times. It's a very linear game and sometimes repetitive..
