Alma is the anchor for the game's universe. With a lot of horror sequels, the audience tends to come back for the monsters, not the heroes. I think the first game set up a very interesting premise for the next installment by raising the stakes and expanding the threat dramatically.

The Game Story

The first game opens with Paxton Fettel taking command of a battalion of Replica Soldiers and storming the Armacham Technology Corporation (ATC) headquarters. Surveillance footage shows Fettel in the act of cannibalizing one of his victims.

The Prehistory

Armacham Technology Corporation (ATC) starts up the Icarus bioengineering program to address long term health consequences of zero gravity environments...

this game is dreadful and the only way it is even slightly acceptable was because it was 1. a continuation of a storyline that I liked and 2. the level designs were freaking brilliant, detailed, in depth, propperly laid out and lit, best level design ive seen in a game.

nothing else about the game even came close to almost matching the first game and its 2 expansions. not even nearly, it was an ported console piece of **** imo.

If this game had came out -first- nobody would have give a **** if there was a sequel to it.

fear 2 is a good game in my opinion, but it's not a iota scary, fear 1 made me jump of my chair.

still, the graphics are better, new weapons, mechs, multiplayer with some stuff, some nice enviroments, new enemies, but the AI is worse, the game isn't scary and alma is a bit scarier now.

it does deserves an 8/10

This game sucks. The AI are freaking idiots, on the easy setting they just stand in the open and fire a 3 round burst every 5 seconds doing no damage. In the original FEAR they AI unloads on you on the easy difficulty doing a lot of damage.

I voted 9, because it's one of the best fps games out there :D This is the best of the F.E.A.R. series :D (in my opinion) I chose 9 because of 5 things I focus on when reviewing, it's Quality, Scares, Lag, Length and Story (atmosphere and stuff like that is included in the Quality!) Quality: I like the graphics in this game, good, and that you can interact with most of the things around, tare down paintings flip things over to take cover behind it, all in all good :D Creepy atmosphere! Scares: in…
