Extreme Gamer writes: "Since the late 1990s Monolith has produced some remarkable shooters including Blood (1997), No One Lives Forever (2000), Condemned (2005) and maybe the most famous of all F.E.A.R (2005). Each game has spawned their sequels, and that about it. For some reason Monolith's games goes so far only to putters off after a sequel is released. Hopefully F.E.A.R. will be the series that breaks the trend because it feels like it is only in the beginning. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin improves upon the original by building on the foundation from the first title. Solidifying its presence with a strong attention to atmosphere, fast action, and slow motion special effects. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin doesn't step to far away from its roots and provides a solid experience that is closely knitted with the original. "
