Fearfully fun if a little samey.,
This review is from: Fear 2: Project Origin (PC DVD) (Video Game)
F.E.A.R 2 is good fun but not quite the classic that the original F.E.A.R was. This 2nd installment has you as a Special Forces soldier Sgt Michael Becket viewing the events depicted at the end of F.E.A.R from a slightly different viewpoint. You then go on to follow ALMA's path of destruction and the scary,psychic child is now becoming a bad attitude teenager throwing hissy fits etc [and the occasional downed airplane] at one and all.
You mostly fight on foot FPS style but a great time can be had with the MECHA suit found on one of the levels and you can blast away legions of the cloned super soldiers that are sent against you. You have to sign up to a STEAM account so your games are down loaded and I have a fairly high spec machine so the graphics looked very good.
F.E.A.R 2 is pretty much the same as F.E.A.R and the others with your slow time enabling you to destroy the minor baddies without too much bother and that's the problem it all feels a bit samey but with that aside I found F.E.A.R 2 to be like a dumb B-Movie. Fun if you like gory blasting and the occasional horror thrill but not much else to write home about.
