First person shooters are great but throw in a bit of horror as well and thats the cherry on top of the cake!!
I played, completed and thoroughly enjoyed the first F.E.A.R instalment what seems like an age ago, so therefore I was looking forward to the sequel as soon as it was announced.
I can quite happily say that FEAR 2 does not disappoint from the first heart pounding minute to the last ... admittedly strange... second! Fans of the first game will notice that the horror element still remains but if anything it has more of a sci-fi twist to the story as well.
The game overall is graphically top notch and surpasses the first one in terms of the sheer detail of your surroundings as well as the various enemies that you encounter during the game. Granted the one thing missing in my opinion is the lack of a jaw dropping moment graphically in the game, but to make up for that you get plenty of pant wetting scary moments.
This is where the game succeeds in my opinion as it teases you with a mixture of horror and straight up army type combat.
F.E.A.R 2 is well worth a look, especially now as it seems to be in the budget purchase price bracket. You get a solid, well presented, non glitch (well until the last mission for me) experience. For any fans of the first FEAR who have been put off by the few negative reviews floating about the game the only thing I can say is .. yes its not the same as the first one and you may find it easier than the first one as I certainly did but it is still a solid sequel and you don't want to buy FEAR 3 when its released and miss out on a whole chunk of the story!
