IGN: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin Review

With F.E.A.R. 2, Monolith has crafted a solid follow-up to F.E.A.R. It's a good shooter, bordering on great at times, but it's not as groundbreaking as its predecessor. Still, it's definitely faithful to the idea of F.E.A.R., which is mainly trying to get under your skin using a combination of tried-and-true horror elements, not the least of which is a creepy little girl.

at least killzone2flop can shut up about this being better than killzone 2

Lifendz3589d ago

and definitely a gamefly for me. But it's not a purchase.

pswi603589d ago

well, Edge says that Fear 2 (8) is better than Killzone 2 (7)...

i think we all know who to trust in this instance, and it's not Edge

Doppy3589d ago

I expected a lot of 8's for this game based off my time with the demo, and hopefully some 9's. I think this game will be great, and I too will rent it from gamefly, and possibly purchase it down the road from them.

I just knew id see Killzone 2 comments here...

Danja3589d ago

I enjoyed the demo and was planning on getting this game ne ways..MP should be fun

Aquanox3588d ago

The Demo looked like the first games released this generation. A bad signal for the full game... and It seems I was right.

I don't think anybody can actually think this is better than KZ2(and be right). That being said, it's still a top notch fps. I'll be purchasing this game within the next few days for sure.

Boty3589d ago

there goes your "Fear 2 will be better then Killzone 2" argument.
Still a game I might pick up when done with Killzone 2.

Ghyst3589d ago

I only buy games that ign gives over 9... i'm sure a lot of people are the same way. 8 is a sure rent some day when i;m bored though. cool stuff.

MasterBlaster3589d ago

You seriously put that much weight into one review? IGN is one of the best but they have still been way off on more than one occasion.

marichuu3589d ago

Buying games that only receive a specific score from a site is wrong on so many levels.

IGN has probably not been way off at all... it only proves that everything is personal preference. A review with a "low" score is not a FACT that the game sucks... it's the reviewers impression of the game, and many people react differently depending on the game.
There are many people out there yelling "FEAR 2 demo sucks", well... maybe for you, but not for me. I'm one of those who enjoyed the FEAR 2 demo more than Killzone 2 (which I loved).

on pc that is. lol

I hope more people are excited about it! Cause it seems like nobody here is :(
