Summary: "Been there, done that" is what I was constantly thinking to myself as I played through this expansion. Released 2 years after the original FEAR, Perseus Mandate shows now effort to introduce anything new to the series. You get 3 or 4 new weapons and a couple new enemy types but everything else is the same. The levels are repetitive and there is still grey everywhere.
Summary: An good example again how they turned an great Title into an money milking cow. From the beginning i could already tell there wasnt put that much effort into it like in the previous two games. There isnt much to say about it. It just feels dull and boring. AI is also in coma. It was just a cheap and easy way to make money from the fans. I feel sorry for all the gamers that bought it at full price including me.
Summary: The original FE.A.R. is one of the best FPS games of all time. This...this is not. The writing is horrendous, the scares are far too in-your-face. Somehow, they screwed up the core gameplay of FEAR (who would have thought that was possible?). They made a good amount of battles completely unfair. Difficulty and fairness are two separate things. The original F.E.A.R was difficult, but never unfair.
Summary: In a way, Perseus Mandate is a lot like Half-Life: Opposing Force. It's an expansion that takes a good slice of the base game and adds a lot of original spices to it that can surpass the base game itself, rather than just be a boring run-of-the-mill expansion. I was hoping F.E.A.R. Extraction Point would be more like this one, where you play as a completely different character and get a nice new perspective in the game's universe.
Summary: DO NOT let the metacritic score steer you away from this game. I loved the original F.E.A.R. and beat if a few years back. based upon the metacritic review I was never going to try this or th other expansion pack as my backlog is already huge and I don't have time for "bad" games. I recently wanted to play F.E.A.R. again but didn't want to go through the same story over.
Summary: F.E.A.R Perseus Mandate was so scary, which is the best aspect of this game and I love it so much. FEAR game was create so scary because of the quiet environment, and this is what really shock you because you were so unexpected and suddenly monster came to your back and kill you. It is a bit worst compare to the original game, however I never expect a DLC would have done this much better. It worth a 9, a ten will need to show improvements however I have found nothing.
Summary: F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate is the 2nd expansion pack by Time Gate Studios and DOES NOT require the original F.E.A.R. to be installed. Perseus Mandate features a story that runs parallel to the original F.E.A.R. and its 1st expansion, Extraction Point. Due to the nasty divorce between Sierra and Monolith, the main story could no longer take place.
Excerpt: "==FEAR PERSEUS MANDATE: YOU'RE THE WEAKEST LINK, GOOD BYE== ===Hey, I'm back, fear me now!=== Well, after a long absence, due to reviewing indenpendant games free to download and in the adventure category (well, if you want to know, it's 5 Days A Stranger, 7 Days A Skeptic, Tribly's Notes and 6 Days A Sacrifice - without forgetting the three countdowns The Body, The Soul and The Mind, text-parser gameplay), I'm coming back to my favorite genre ...
Pros: FEAR ambiance, graphics, weapons, soundtrack
Cons: Storyline is making FEAR universe ridiculous, no novelty
