F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin PS3 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: When did little girls in films and games get recast from cute to malevolent? When did they shift from being little fluffballs of pink and ponies to be protected into the blank-eyed, lank haired harpies-in-training that we see in pretty much every scary movie or video game at the moment?
Excerpt: Don't fancy reading the review? Would you prefer to sit back in your chair and watch some glorious 720p HD footage of the game in action while listening to us tell you about F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin? If so head over to our video review for a condensed review of Monolith's first-person shooter.
Excerpt: Has any game seen as much drama surrounding it as F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin ? After the original's release, the developer Monolith and publisher Vivendi parted ways, but each also planned a sequel.
Conclusion: FEAR 2 is not only a vast improvement over its predecessor; it’s an enormously superior first-person shooter, full-stop. Monolith have refined all of the elements that made FEAR such a great game to begin with, learning from their mistakes and building upon the formula to create the finest horror...
Conclusion: While I’m impressed with the world of F.E.A.R. 2 and the story it tells, its core shooting gameplay merits little more than a shrug and a half-hearted thumbs-up. In its early chapters, the combat feels painfully generic, with every gun, enemy and combat situation reminding me of other, better games.
Summary: The first thing you should probably do is forget any other F.E.A.R. game exists besides the original. Perseus Mandate and The F.E.A.R. Files are officially noncanon. This game, formerly known as Project Origin due to Vivendi owning the F.E.A.R. name, is now F.E.A.R. 2 .
Conclusion: F.E.A.R. 2 provides a quality gaming experience, both online and offline, which will have gamer owners coming back for of Alma and the crazy situations surrounding her. With intuitive gameplay mechanics, solid A.I. and an engaging story element, F.E.A.R.
Excerpt: I'll be candid and blunt when I preface this review by stating that I'm growing tired of all the horror-FPS games like Condemned, Jericho, and FEAR. They all feel largely the same, and generally play out similarly.
