F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (PC)

 

The image of a pasty-skinned, greasy-haired young girl has become an iconic one in horror films like The Ring, and the original F.E.A.R. introduced a similar figure with great success. Of course, that game gave its ghostly visions a chilling context,...

F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin. Still not that scary.

Similar to other online FPS military games, F.E.A.R. 2 online makes use of a kind of class system. You customize your character to make use of different weapons and armor. Going with tougher armor will improve your chances to survive but you lack...

Alma's back and this time she's mad. Actually she was pretty pissed the first go around, but she certainly hasn't gotten any happier. F.E.A.R. 2, after a brief prelude, takes up where the original left off: Alma on the loose and the city in ruins....

It's hard to play through Monolith's F.E.A.R. 2 and not get a feeling of d?j? vu. Between F.E.A.R., Condemned, and their sequels, this is the fourth scary, first person game that they've given us in a row, and unfortunately the experiences aren't...

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

 

I'm a bit of a sucker for scary games. I've played through most of the titles I could find that were labelled 'scary', 'spooky', or 'don't go to sleep or you'll see it in your nightmares' by others, and generally have a good time. Don't get me wrong,...

Good-looking graphical effects; game delivers a good scare here and there; more varied environments than the first title

Repetitive gameplay; horror moments tend to be a little clichd; lacklustre multiplayer

F.E.A.R. was a game that combined explosive gunfights with spooky Japanese-esque horror sequences involving a little harmless girl. Literally: she was harmless. But that didn't stop it from getting me jumping in my seat every time I turned around and...

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

There were times when I was playing F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin where I would become incredibly wrapped up in the experience and truly felt dread and panic as I approached impending scares or battles. These moments were incredibly gripping and offered...

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

 

This somewhat scary sequel is a solid shooter, but it can't keep pace with its lauded predecessor.

Slow-motion shootouts are good, gory fun ; Mech sequences provide welcome variety ; Some cool, spooky imagery

Story offers little mystery or suspense ; Cliched random scares and level design ; Multiplayer is drab and disappointing

Ghastly shoot 'em up.

Fantastic graphics; Intelligent AI; Great shooter; Giant robot

but not genuinely terrifying.; Lousy, tacked-on multiplayer; Too easy; And really, shooting ghosts

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

 

FEAR (first encounter assault recon), was a dubious title. Never before had such a forced acronym and such a merging of genres been so...good, at everything it was trying to do. The horror shooter had everything. It had complete pant filling tension,...

A Second Serving of F.E.A.R.

Instead, the developers have created an extremely safe game that does very little to move the genre forward; it's a really good looking shooter with recycled combat mechanics and a creepy vibe. Sadly, with so many other games on the market,...

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

 

It's been a few years now since the original F.E.A.R. smashed onto our PCs, stretching system requirements and combining a bit of scary stuff with a bit of Matrix-style first person shooting action. That year, Monolith also released Condemned, another...

The somewhat disappointing result of all this is that F.E.A.R. 2 isn't different enough from the first game to surprise us, and with such a lack of innovation, even this polished horror shooter just won't get the rise out of players that the original...
