Kikizo gives its verdict on Monolith's survival horror shooter:
"F.E.A.R. 2 is that most damning of all things - neither memorably awful, nor memorably brilliant, but simply decent. The sureness with which Monolith revisits the first game's themes and dual gameplay structure is commendable, but the results will have little attraction for shooter fans still eating their way through the best of 2008. A bit more vim and vigour is in order for the third iteration. Thinking up a psychic ability which can't be reproduced by downing three espressos would be a good start. And get rid of that silly name!"
