For horror and action fans, there are lots of reasons to play FEAR 2. The game also answers many questions raised by the original shooter and does so with Monolith's familiar flair for storytelling and detail. But it is a slow burner and you do need to buy into Monolith's world of fictitious evil corporations holed up beneath schools and offices everywhere tinkering with telepathic child devils that will sooner pull the skin from your bones like you're a KFC chicken wing than skip rope. But what's not to buy into with a scare around every corner, graphic set pieces to battle through, and a tight, subtly-paced script. FEAR 2 is gruesomely good fun.
