Good game, long Steam download sucks!
3 July 2011
Summary: This is a good game! However, even though it came out a couple of years ago, you really need a quad-core 64 bit to play it seemlessly. Also, be prepared to open another Steam account, and an unbelievable 1 hour download before you can play, for "new updates" or "added news". On 4th july weekend, Steam was "busy", so I am now waiting 11.5+ hours on my new 64 bit quad computer for the same material! And I have a super fast connection!
Summary: So unbeknownst to me FEAR 2 is protected *grimace* by steam. This means that you must have an internet connection to install, witch my gaming rig does not have, then after that you have to sit through hours of updates before you can even PLAY the game. So while I was sitting through all of this after I had to move all of my stuff to an internet connection at my friends house, I was hoping that the gamplay would be good enough to make all of this worth it, and I guess it...
Summary: Pros - Graphics are much improved, guns seem to do more damage quicker Cons - STEAM protected so don't expect to play for at least an hour or two after you install and all the updates are downloaded. No lean keys if you use. Very repetitive but most FPS are Other - I bought because I liked the first F.E.A.R.
Summary: I'd have to say I was more impressed by the free demo than the complete game of this sequel. I really liked the spooky atmosphere of the first F.E.A.R. and thought it added some excitement to what was essentially another fps w/Max Payne slo-mo bullet time. The destructible environments & new mech toy was fun in #2, but didn't make it different enough from the 1st game. I've played BioShock since playing the first F.E.A.R.
Summary: F.E.A.R 2 Project origin, when first announced I was actually excited for the release. I am a huge F.E.A.R fan even know the expansion pack where a joke. This game is almost completely disappointing, I liked F.E.A.R one because it stood out in quite a few ways. This game is just another carbon copy of most new age shooters.
Summary: Felt like a Modern Warfare rip-off. overall this is a relatively good game but there are too many frustrations to make this a quality game. If you like slow-paced, tactical first-shooters that are all about positioning and thought instead of thrilling action and face-to-face combat, then you will enjoy this. If you dont, then leave it on the shelf... 6/10 ...
Conclusion: i dont understand all the 4 and 5 stars out of 5. When it comes down to it, this is quite a hefty disapointment compared to the first game. The gun combat and 'action movie' feel of the first is just completely gone. The guns feel pitiful and weak compared to the first, and the environment damage is also considerably toned down.
Conclusion: Good graphics, relitive content, but like so many others like crysis to story orientated, not enough freeplay! You just get going and its over, some expansion packs would help. Seeing as few PC games are made now it seems a shame to make them anything other than great!
Summary: I was eagerly anticipating this when it was announced as the first one was an awesome experience. I say experience rather then game as it was the overall feeling of the game that made it so good, sure other games had better controls, some may of have better weapons, better plots but F.E.A.R had a good bit of all that plus it threw in the killer element: FEAR, yep the first game was damn scary, not all the time just in parts and that made it worse as you were lulled at...
Summary: Aprés un premier volet surprenant et des add on trés intéressant voici enfant la suite de ce jeu qui s'est vite imposé dans son genre. On conserve la même fluidité, le même dynamisme, la trame scénaristique...mais finallement rien ne change et sans nouveautés on commence à s'ennuyer...
