  • Conclusion: Concept: Alma returns to wreak havoc on your psyche and feed enemies to your gun Graphics: Fantastic explosions and eerie environments overcome the less impressive textures Sound: Soundtrack alternates between creepy mood-setting effects and uninspired battle music Playability: Tight controls, save for the annoying movement bounce Entertainment: Not frightening enough to make you sleep with the lights on, but a solid shooter Replay: Moderate

  • Conclusion: I played a good amount of the fear 2 multiplayer and I must say it's not very good. For one finding matches is the biggest obstacle since the game is almost 2 1/2 years old. However, when you do find a match the game modes are pretty much the same as every other shooters out there. Meaning they could of came out with a new aspect to the shooter multiplayer.

  • 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?

Expert Review

Game Informer
11 August 2009
  • Summary: F.E.A.R. 2 avoids the pitfalls of its predecessor while throwing in a few tricks of its own. As with the original game, the audio work is superlative in and out of combat. Cinematic tools like pacing and lighting are utilized with great skill to evoke moods that range from the creeped-out willies to abject terror. The story is much more interesting and less obvious in its twists.

Intense, mature first-person shooter with creepy storyline.

Common Sense Media
8 August 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that F.E.A.R. 2 is a Mature-rated game and for good reason: it shows a lot of violence and gore -- including human and inhuman enemies that spray blood when attacked and collapse in a heap on the floor -- as well as sexual themes (an act of sex, though not graphic, and a very young girl with hair that barely covers her naked breasts), and foul language.

  • Excerpt: When F.E.A.R arrived back on the scene in 2006, many praised the action horror shooter calling it an intense thrill ride which spooked the bejeebers out of gamers. It was a highly regarded game and was a 'must own' for fans of the horror genre. That being said, many critics expressed concerns with the control scheme and the linear gameplay. Almost two and half years later the sequel has arrived in the form of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
