I waited a long time for this game to come out, i think the original is pretty good and couldnt wait to get my hands on this game.
The moment i did however, i regretted it, the dial a clone bad guys from the first game are still in it, although they have added a new type of enemy but its a bit of a cop out if you ask me, the weapons are nowhere near as good as the first game, my favourite weapon on the first f.e.a.r was the dual pistols, the pistol on this version is pathetic and you cannot dual wield.
Despite the fact that in the first game, the enemies all look the same and the vast majority of the game is set in one boring place, the second game also suffers from the same problems, only this time the gameplay and weapons have suffered also, not to mention that the story (after finishing the first game) is very, very obvious.
All in all, a very average first person shooter, nothing special at all and if anything, a bit of a let down, for the price of this game you can buy metal gear solid 4 and the orange box (great first person shooters), you will get far more enjoyment and value for money and an all round better gaming experience
I recommend avoiding this title
