    50% Non-scary, 50% Generic, 100% Fail sequel

    Editors note: I'm reviewing the PC version of this game, hence the reference to steam though I have played the console versions too. Not much of a difference if any… Also, the score given here isn't exactly the score ... Read Full Review

    More fear and action ...

    "F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin" - is a worthy, and even better game than its predecessor, packed with great FPS-action, Slow-Mo moments and all the horror and dark corridors your stomach can handle, you really get more than... Read Full Review

    A true FPS.

    I loved the first FEAR and I can say I enjoyed the second FEAR. The story continues with you trying to bring down Alma and finding out what really was behind the story of Alma and the experiments they forced her to unde... Read Full Review

    A great atmospheric game with plenty of oh crap moments but gameplay is lacking!

    I enjoy FPS, its the main game type I play in PC. FEAR was pretty much one of the first multiplayer games I played ever on PC, or any system what so ever. I played with a bunch of really good players then and the mecha... Read Full Review

    Discover new species and uncover the truth.

    F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin for the Microsoft Xbox 360 is the sequel to F.E.A.R. Starts before the nuke went off and you play as a different team, who was sent in to a capture Genevieve Aristide but after the end of F.E.A... Read Full Review

    Do not fear this game.

    First thing first. This is not a scary game. It might have some elements of a horror game and maybe even try to be scary but its not. But what you get in return and a pretty decent shooter with some fun slow motion skill... Read Full Review

    A fun and at often times creepy game.

    I picked up F.E.A.R. 2 having played one of the demos before hand. Mind you I didn't really like the demo but I had been assured that the rest of the game was much better. They were right when they said the rest of the g... Read Full Review

    Competent action FPS that does little to advance the FEAR story.

    FEAR 2 is a well designed, old school style, FPS. Level design is great. After playing Max Payne 3 it was nice to play through areas that actually had multiple paths. The variety and differences in guns, well balanced pi... Read Full Review

    You wouldn't think playing a game with a kid that has a fetish for burnt flesh would get boring...

    Fear/Fun Factor: I should say first off, this is not a bad game. Its just not a particularly interesting (or memorable) one. Unfortunately it suffers from sequel-itis which is where they've tried to recreate the first o... Read Full Review

    Playing Reborn leaves you guessing for all the wrong reasons.

    I guess the whole idea about single player DLCs is to answer those 'WTF' moments during the main campaign. FEAR 2 certainly have a lot to answer for especially near the end of the game. Of course I'm not going to spoil t... Read Full Review

    This game was cheap. In two ways.

    Bought this on steam during the sale. Playing the first fear I thought I would love it. Boy was I wrong. This game is beyond cheap. Peak your head out for half a second and you're dead. Since playing this, I have ... Read Full Review
