Honest Gamers writes: "So we're left with the shooting. Excellent shooting, no doubt, but excellent shooting in a woefully uninspired game. Where other, less technically accomplished action titles will stand the test of time, their stories filling the minds of players for years to come, Fear 2 is destined to fade away into insignificance. Whether you care about that will likely be the defining factor in your enjoyment here. I did enjoy it, undeniably. It's agreeably thrilling and often exciting. But will I be talking about its moments in the months and years to come?
I doubt it. I've forgotten most of them already".
