Beginning shortly before the ending of F.E.A.R., a Special Forces squad is on a routine mission when the city of Auburn is rocked by a supernatural explosion. Alma, a girl with immense power and a thirst for revenge, has unleashed her wrath upon the city and thrown it into chaos. Tension builds as the squad must combat enemy forces and the supernatural as they struggle to find a way to stop Alma and uncover the mysterious forces arrayed against them before it's too late.

 Outstanding Improvement and Gripping Storyline worth it!

| | See all UKFX21's reviews (4)

Those who haven't played F.E.A.R are missing out, but even if you don't care for the story the gameplay in F.E.A.R 2 handles itself very well.

First of all the Visuals of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin has taken a great leap and with the grainy textures and dust in the air the environments seems positively gritty.

The Audio aspect of the game is also greatly improved! The level of audio is more balanaced yet more detailed meaning no straining your ears or pumping the volume at ridiculous hours in the morning just to hear the words of the story line. The Voice acting, though good in the first are nothing compared to the great quality of F.E.A.R. 2's voice actors. It helps bring you into the story and feel the pressure of your fellow comrades and other characters.

The music is very well done also and it is perfect for the situation. Slightly pumped up tempos are introduced into the battle elements, whilst calm dark areas get a quieter near non existent level of music with sudden loud, fast paced bursts to put the spook into the situation.

The control scheme is some-what confusing amongst the other FPS's out there. It almost seems as if they have tried to take Call of Duty's simple aiming system and mix it around with the likes of Vegas and Half Life 2. Though that may seem a bad point, once you get used to it the controls are very nice and it feels very well done. The firing of the weapons is beautiful and the vibration fits every round that is shot. This makes the weapon feel a lot more "real" in your hands and thus makes the game itself feel more realistic.

The sound effects for the game are well, top notch. Spooky lil noises well tense you up, and the sound of the guns goes nicely with it's feel. The odd Can may be knocked over from time to time and it'll get you turning around. My suggestion would be 5.1 surround sound for this game, though Stereo or 2.1 is perfectly adequate.

Scariness. Well, I have to admit though I'm not a mad fan of horror titles simply because I prefer laughs or action over scary. I have to admit F.E.A.R 2 is not as scary primarily because you know what to expect - that being if you had played the first F.E.A.R title. Now this'll go up 1 mark for those who haven't played F.E.A.R but F.E.A.R. 2 just doesn't keep the scary factor compared to the original. The game still is scary at many points and is worth every penny but I think the spookiness will be a lot higher for those who haven't played the first.

Interating with the environment is a nice addition and it was clearly expected by those who had played the first F.E.A.R. Enemies grabbing objects and toppling them over into adequate pieces of inpenetrability to save their wicked souls did seem quite unfair so it was kind of expected to be in F.E.A.R 2. So yes, they did allow you to interact more with your environement which is a very good idea. You can flip over tables, chairs, vending machines, bins, and numerous other objects and use them as cover; as well as the enemy of course. Scary moments will involve you to battle face 2 face with a foe and press B to stop yourself getting seriously hurt but it fits in so well because it adds alot of tension to the game an a bit o' feel good once you defeat the enemy.

The Multiplayer isn't - in my opinion - as good as the first. Should be a little lighter on resources but there isn't any lag. Practice makes perfect but it doesn't score too well for me.

Achievements are finally alot better. You will recieve achievements for completing a chapter. Just like in the first. But this time there are a lot less multiplayer achievements and they do not consist of the millions of 5 GS achievements that F.E.A.R annoyingly had.

Hope this review HELPED!

Am I the only person who thought the first F.E.A.R game was Incredibly dull? I tried the Demo for this but, whilst the graphics were much improved, the gameplay still consisted of wandering about with no real clue where you are going and nothing else of any interest only infrequently interupted by a gun fight. meh, perhaps it's just me ;)

Top 100 Games Reviewer

Essentially, this is a game that doesn't stray particularly far from its well established comfort zone, but its so well polished and the core mechanics are so solid that it doesn't hugely matter.

First up, one slight issue - if you haven't played and are at least vaguely familiar with the events that took place in the first F.E.A.R game, then you'll be left entirely in the dark for this one. The plot carries straight on from the first, with very little in the way of explanation for the uninitiated. Certain text clues will mean little if you haven't played the first game.

Everything plays pretty much as you would expect. Graphically its rather compelling - one slight disappointment is that the torch doesn't cast real time shadows. More than likley a technical decision to ensure the frame rate stays stable, but having played Half Life, Left 4 Dead etc it feels a touch dated to have a torch that shines 'though' scenery without casting a shadow. Not a huge issue though. Elsewhere visually, its far more triumphant. The first game was rightly criticised for the dull office environments, and in F.E.A.R 2 the colour pallette is intelligently jazzed up and the locations whilst essentially offices are far more interesting to fight through. The shattered streets present a visual highlight with all manner of effects flying around.

In terms of physics its all beautifully kinetic - the environments are crammed with all manner of stuff that flies convincingly around during a fire fight - glass breaks, walls crumble, office detritus is flung around. It adds immeasurably to the firefights, lending a sense of consequence to the world.

The combat is excellent - it works beautifully without the Slo-Motion effect, being both brutal and weighty. Enemies ragdoll nicely when shot, limping off when hit in the legs and dying quite spectacularly. Add in the slo-mo button and the combat takes on a new form with the player able to dance balletic fashion around your foes, popping caps in their heads surrounded by glorious waves of bullets and sparks. The enemy are prefectly pitched to make the combat dynamic and exciting - clever enough to dive out of the way, try outflanking manouvres and flip over tables and desks to form temporary cover, but stupid enough to ensure the 'fun' factor is left in by hovering near explosive fire extinguishers and oxygen tanks, or perhaps carrying exploding tanks on their backs. It keeps the shooting fun and nciely OTT.

Its a hugely atmospheric game, but not necessarily a particularly scary one. If you've played the first, then the scares are essentially formulaic - you can often predict when a shocking event will occur, usually involving Alma or a mad vision. They're certainly atmospheric, creating a creepy world to roam around in, but the scares are a little cheap in places relying on techno ghosts popping out of lift doors shouting 'BOO'. Fun, but its a technique that ages quickly.

So its essentially a check list of what to put in a shooter, but all the elements work well. Special mention must go to the section where you get to control the giant Mech - normal genre convention dictates that this section should be a lightweight and irritating diversion from the core shooting, but in F.E.A.R 2 its handled very well, with a lot of visual cleverness and enjoyable shooting that lasts just the right amount of time before it starts to grate. Level design can be a little convoluted at times, but generally this is great example of a development team that knows precisely what makes a shooter work and showcases a game that can build on experience from previous games (theres a lot of elements here from Condemned 2) to polish each element until it gleams.

 The Scary Call of Duty

| | See all arty666's reviews (137)

First Encounter Assault Recon 2 or F.E.A.R. 2 for short is an awesome shooter which plays just like The Modern Call of Duty games. The story is immense and is highly addictive. Sadly, there is no one online so if you are a completionist you will probably have to boost the many online achievements. Overall, a highly satisfying game and you will enjoy it if you like Modern Warfare.

 Best yet.

Now and again you get a game that is not as good as the first one, Such as "Farcry2" This was nothing like the first one. But with "F.E.A.R.2" this one is much, much better than the original. The quality of the action , suspence and it seems to flow better. I am very,very pleased with this , Had to switch it of now and then to give my heart a rest, You get so involved it nearly gives you heart attack when "Madam" turns up unexpected. This game does come high on my list of all time fav's..Call Of Duty ect... Get it and enjoy....
