The sequel to F.E.A.R. continues the supernatural suspense story of a powerful psychic named Alma, whose rage against those who wronged her caused her to begin an escalating paranormal crisis that threatens to devour and replace reality with her own. Players will encounter Alma as they explore the city that was annihilated by the cataclysmic explosion of the previous game. Instead of playing as the Point Man, the game's protagonist is Michael Becket, a special forces operator whose squad is sent in to arrest Genevieve Aristide approximately thirty minutes before the ending of F.E.A.R.

A very fun game.

Instead of Playing as the Point Man from the first game you play as Sergeant Michael Becket.

The first problem i had was playing with a new character who also has super reflexes (slow mo). That was what made Point Man unique. But too many people have this ability, im including the FEAR Sergeant from FEAR Perseus Mandate.

But because of how great the game was i grew to like Becket.

The gameplay is good, weapons are good and interesting, the sound is good, the game looks good, the enemies are good and interesting, levels are good, you even use mechs or turrets at some points.
And the plot is better than the first FEAR.

However, like FEAR Extraction Point, FEAR 2 follows a very similar road as the first FEAR.
By that i mean it feels very similar, too similar, right down to squadmates, communications, who dies, when they die and how they die.
So the game is predictable because it follows the first FEAR so closely.

Also, throughout the game you gather 'intelligence': information through text that explain certain things, i think.
I say "i think" because i dont actually read them which is a shame, it would have made the story better. They should have put it in the form of audio diaries.

I think mainly what makes FEAR 2 so great is Alma's obsession with Becket, which also gets me interested in Becket, and makes him such a great character.

Its too bad in the 3rd game he is treated with no respect and they screw it up, what they do to him.
****** me off.

+DLC F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn
Although very short, its also very sweet.
You play as a Replica soldier. Paxton Fettel summons you so he can be reborn in you.

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…
