    By retaining the best aspects of the original and improving upon them, Fear Effect 2 is nothing short of a masterpiece.

    The original Fear Effect was a mature gamer's dream. Not only was the game filled with all the touches that define a truly mature experience but it was also an amazing game in its own right. It had a ...

    Greatest Game of All Time

    Rated on October 15, 2005 by kingpin126

    Rated on March 07, 2006 by gaeren

    Yes retro helix has the -now famous lesbian- elements and the costume changing...oh the joy. But at it's heart it is still a fear effect game and really centers on the tightened up gameplay mechanics ...
