F.E.A.R. Project Origin

The Armchair Empire
19 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Michael Becket, a Delta Force operator tasked with the retrieval of an Armacham VIP, who is under fire from a team of mercenaries hired by her own corporation to give her one heck of a retirement party. Completing the first level gives players a window view of Alma’s immediate release, followed by her PMS-induced psychic nuke of the entire city.

  • Summary: Alma is back and it's time for Monolith to retake their rightful place as the true masters of FEAR. F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin brings together the talent of veteran game writer Flint Dille with the studio that brought us the first round of F.E.A.R

  • Excerpt: Why are little girls so damn scary? Seriously. They're everywhere throughout the horror genre; always eerily visible out of the corner of your eye, usually with entangled hair drooped over some sort of horrific visage, and with revenge-by-death on their mind. Whatever the reason, Monolith sticks with the theme as Alma returns in the proper sequel to their 2005 suspense-driven first-person shooter, with F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin.

  • Excerpt: One might be inclined to think that there is nothing 2 fear but F.E.A.R. itself, but that just doesn't apply to this here sequel. Nothing to tolerate but F.E.A.R. 2 would be more apt.

GameSpot
10 February 2009
  • Summary: This somewhat scary sequel is a solid shooter, but it can't keep pace with its lauded predecessor.
  • Pros: Slow-motion shootouts are good, gory fun, Mech sequences provide welcome variety, Some cool, spooky imagery
  • Cons: Story offers little mystery or suspense, Cliched random scares and level design, Multiplayer is drab and disappointing

  • Conclusion: I can't help but feel that this game might have been better served with a title like A. V.A.G.U.E. S.E.N.S.E. O.F. U.N.E.A.S.E.: Project Origin instead of its current moniker - F.E.A.R. 2 just isn't scary. The graphics are dated and the gameplay approaches frustrating with gusto - it's not a bad game, it just isn't very good. The more I played it the less I wanted to as the story got sillier and the horror theme phased in and out. I wouldn't recommend F.E.A.R.
  • Pros: Decent special effects., Gore porn enthusiasts are catered for., Mechs., Slow-mo or Bullet Time or whatever you want to call it is still cool.
  • Cons: Not very scary., Graphics are dated., Clumsy walking., Just a really silly story.

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

24 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Det är svårt att kalla FEAR 2 för mer än ett bra actionspel. Det är inget sensationellt, inget otroligt eller särskilt engagerande. Striderna är spektakulära och häftiga men när fienderna, vapnen och miljöerna inte lyckas övertyga mig om varför det här är ett riktigt bra spel är det svårt att rekommendera det här till någon annan än fans av serien eller genren. Lättskrämda kan dock också hoppa på FEAR 2-tåget.
  • Pros: Intensivt och brutalt. Kul i korta doser., Striderna och stämningen har alltid varit spelseriens starkaste kort.
  • Cons: En ojämn kampanj som inte lyckas med skräcken. Ett identitetslöst multiplayerläge., Känns lite för mycket som kejsarens nya kläder. För lite nytt och inte nog engagerande handling.

  • Conclusion: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is niet alleen een feest van herkenning voor de fans van het eerste deel, maar ook een leuke kennismaking voor mensen die ook nog maar nooit iets van F.E.A.R. gehoord of gezien hebben. De game is bovendien ook nog eens een stuk minder eng dan alle andere edities, waardoor ook shooter-fanaten met zweethandjes (zoals ik) nog meer plezier uit F.E.A.R. zullen halen.
  • Pros: Slow-motion actie, Kunstmatige intelligentie nog steeds sterk
  • Cons: Niet heel vernieuwend, Multiplayer stelt geen reet voor

  • Excerpt: Jedna z najbardziej oczekiwanych produkcji tego roku wreszcie ujrzała światło dzienne. Niestety. Kontynuacja doskonałego F.E.A.R. nie stanęła na wysokości zadania. Producent Project Origin , czyli firma Monolith , to żaden tam branżowy młokos, a niezwykle doświadczony i zasłużony deweloper znany m.in. z będącego wciąż na topie Alien vs Predator 2 .
