A few jump scares on occasion dont mean horror.

Summary: I was told the game fails at horror so no surprise. I hate silent protagonists especially this guy. Its amazing how he shows ZERO emotion through this whole ordeal. Its mindboggling how the developers got away with this dummy. The story is engaging which keeps me coming back to play it. Alma is the core interest. I actually like the gun battles.
Summary: Not as good as the first one. Without spoiling anything I'll just say that it's a bit more "Hollywood," that it has less good of gameplay, and that they changed some weapons for the worse. The supernatural stuff is a bit too overt. What I mean by that is the original kind of has you hallucinate, whereas this one kind of shows you too much with too much context. Not shady memories and someone else's flashbacks but scenes that seem to try too hard.
Summary: Meh...supposed to be survival horror but not really scary. That disappointed me. It's fun to play through once, after that I'm sure It would be boring. Um...it's just a mediocre game overall, nothing worthy of praise to be found.
Summary: I like FPS games and I enjoyed this one. The graphics are good, the variety of weapons and the way they feel and sound is very good, and the overall experience is fun. I found a couple downsides... first there are *very* few ways to change the control setup. These days you should be able to totally customize the controls any way you please but it's just not in this game.
Summary: F.E.A.R. 2 is a good blend of First person shooting action and horror. You are given the ability to slow down time, while not original, is a fun concept in an FPS that really helps with the higher difficulty settings. Weapons such as Shock grenades give the game more of a fantasy/sci-fi feel. You will see most of the scary moments coming at you, but a few might make you jump and the story is quite intriguing. The only downside to this game is the online multiplayer.
Summary: In 2005, monolith released F.E.A.R., a game that ultimately won my heart 4 years later. A year after that, Monolith released F.E.A.R. 2. I'll cut to the chase. It's a good game, but it won't be too awesome if you didn't play the first. See, F.E.A.R. 2 is less like a Stephen King/The Ring hybrid (it's predecessor), and more like a creepy bit here and there with a monster jumping in your face shooter. There is much more action in F.E.A.R. 2 than in the original F.E.A.R.
Summary: Overall, I'd say the game mechanics are definitely an improvement over the 1st FEAR. Not by a lot, but definitely better. Some parts weren't as creepy, but parts of the school definitely creeped me out. The Good - Interesting storyline keeps you involved... mostly. - Slightly improved control options from the 1st FEAR. - DLC provides some additional paying time, although I didn't think it was quite worth $8 or whatever I paid.
Summary: I didn't enjoy this game as much as I did the original F.E.A.R. One of the things I really liked about the original was how creepy and scary it was and I just didn't get that feeling from F.E.A.R. 2. Game play was ok and the AI was good I just had higher expectations and was left disappointed.
Summary: So FEAR 2 is a sequel. But, you do not need to play the original to enjoy this game. The story of FEAR 2 is dovetailed into the ending of FEAR 1. The opening level is rocked by a large explosion that marked the conclusion of FEAR 1. This is a nice touch. It ties the second game into the first one without beating you over the head with it. You play Sgt. Beckett. A generic military soldier type of hero who's back story is largely forgettable.
Summary: F.E.A.R. 2 ist Grundsätzlich kein schlechtes Game, jedoch stört mich eindeutig die Graphik.. Es kann schon sein das es von den Machern gewollt ist, dass alles so verschwommen und ohne jegliche Farbe ist, doch das man bei längerer Zeit furchtbares Augenweh verspürt haben sie ignoriert! Meiste Zeit ist die Umgebung im Spiel Dunkel, was die Augen natürlich noch mehr anstrengt..
