Definitely Not as Good as the First but Still a Solid Entry

User Rating: 8 | F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin X360
Monolith Productions develops this follow to the hit game F.E.A.R.

The title of this game pretty much explains what this story is going to be about. You play a Delta Force operator Michael Beckett, whose squard is sent to take Genevieve Aristide into protective custody. However, things go terribly wrong as not only are the ATC Security Black ops also there but Alma is there trying to killing everything she sees.

The story, much like the first game, is very well written and the cutscenes are phenomenal. Monolith tries to make the game scary but it really isn't. There really isn't any part of this game that will make you jump out of your seat.

From a graphical standpoint, the game is great but not really a standout when compared to other shooter or action games that have come out on the PS3 and 360. The game has tremendous characters models and some great visual effects with fire and the hallucinations that Becket has throughout the game are incredible. However, the regular enviroments are not so great. They aren't terrible by any means, they're just not well detailed.

The action is where this game shines. The action is intense and non-stop. It's not the most difficult shooter and is definitely not as challenging as the first game but it will still keep you hands glued to the controller and wanting to play more.

The 360 and PS3 versions are pretty much the same game. Graphically they look the same and the controls are pretty well set up on both consoles. The 360 does run a little smoother then the PS3 but that difference is hardly noticeable.

Overall, while not as good or as scary as the first F.E.A.R. it is still a solid entry that fans will definitely be interested in.
