Do I need to play F.E.A.R 2 to play F.E.A.R 3?

Hey I just saw this game at Target on clearance, and I'm almost certain about buying the first Fear, but I'm still a little unsure about getting the second one. Here are a few questions I have for it....

 

Is it scary/creepy?

Does it contribute A LOT to the story?

Am I better off getting the second one instead of the first (based on scariness)?

 

Thanks to all who respond!

I highly recommend playing the entire series. They all tie together. Fear 1, 2, and 3. There is a set called Fear Files but you can skip those as they are in an alternate timeline (created when the series was owned by another company). Definitely should play F.E.A.R. 1, 2, and 3 though if your going to play the third one. Also "Project Origin" is worth playing as well. In my opinion the second one was the best in the series.
