Worth Playing: 'F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin' Review

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a competent, if unexceptional, game. The gameplay is more of an expansion of F.E.A.R. than a full-blown sequel, and unfortunately, the plot and "fear factor" don't quite reach the heights achieved by the first F.E.A.R. However, it's still a fast-paced shooter with some interesting set pieces, useful weapons and enjoyable gameplay. The multiplayer isn't quite as tacked-on as F.E.A.R.'s was, but it isn't going to hold a gamer's attention for too long. All in all, F.E.A.R. 2's biggest problem is that it feels like yet another expansion pack to the F.E.A.R. franchise instead of a sequel, and gamers eager for something new may be a bit disappointed. The biggest and most interesting change involves the rarely used robot suit, and everything else feels like more of the same.

Look. I haven't played the first Fear, but I played the Fear 2 demo and thought it was freaking awesome. I don't know why all of these freakin reviewers lower the score just because these games play like the first game. Its like these reviewers want a game to cook and clean the house for them too. Im still getting the game because the demo was really creepy,,, the graphics are sic, and the gameplay was very satisfying. I wish I could say the same for COD5 thats why I traded it in for Fear 2. Screw this review. I think im done looking at reviews unless its from a major company. This game is way better then a 7.
