Summary: when the first FEAR launched it was the 1st FPS game to use the now famous bullit time from matrix movies and max payne games. It was also the single best looking game around when it first launched on the PC. Such leaps and bounds in the FPS field can NOT be said about FEAR 2. If you can get past that, and accept FEAR 2 as "just another FPS games" then it is a really fun FPS game well worth a playthrough or two.
Summary: Fans of the original FEAR remember the chilling and tense story involving Point Man and Alma. They also remember the vanilla set pieces that bogged down the intensity of the gameplay as well, along with the expansions which made the series take a most laughable turn for the absurd and ridiculous.
Summary: This game fricken rocks. it is very scary and one of the greatest parts of the game is stepping into the ruined city. The ending i crap and makes no sense though, but other than that buy it or at least rent it because the multiplayer is kinda lame to.
