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: 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. The first game did not have much language and there was no sexual content that I recall.
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 thingies - some cool flashbacks - the ending is kinda weak. Overall the game felt kinda short (7 intervals - 14 "missions") Nothing really new here, so was kinda boring.
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! You DO NOT make a game more challenging by limiting the player's ability to save. You make it more annoying! Game designers that do this should be smacked.
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: 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. Now that the price is down, this would be a good time to buy it.
Summary: Yes console games have become too popular and this game was dummed down for the console. That said, it was still fun to play and I would recommend it to anyone who like the Undying, Fear, Doom 3 etc. It does have it's creepy moments but this episoed is a little sad as you learn of Alma's torments. It would be better without Steam and would certainly be better if it were not ported from the console.
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 ...
