It's OK Is About It
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.
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.
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.
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...
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
