Gaming Nexus: "F.E.A.R. 2 is a great game to experience. The storytelling stands among the best in the industry, the graphics are top-notch, the audio keeps your ears straining for the slightest demonic skitter while the music perfectly reflects what's going on on-screen…and yet you will perform the same actions throughout the game over and over again. Is this a fairly common first person shooter problem? Maybe. You could make the same argument about COD 4, that you perform the same motions reflexively, but the difference is that COD 4's action is compelling, pushing you through different environments and different situations, which F.E.A.R. 2 does, but not as well. While the F.E.A.R. series continues to push the boundaries on first-person storytelling, it stays solidly within the realm of typical first-person-shooter gameplay."
