I got to say, I liked the first fear, it was a nice mix of fps action and the occasional spooky stuff that might send a slight chill down a persons spine.
It was such a wonderful thing, running up to soldiers and literally blowing them to bits with a shotgun from point blank range in slow motion as they kind of mist the air with their blood and body part chunks.
FEAR2 didn't disappoint to that end, I don't know if they're give you explosive rounds by default or what, but it just doesn't get old ripping people to shreds with a hailstorm of bullet in slow mo.
But as much as they seemed to up the fps action, it seems they were lacking in the actual fear part.
There was hardly anything scary at all in this installment (unless you think the occasional naked goth chick slowly walking around is scary.) it mostly just plays like a typical fps.
The enemies shown on the left here were kind of interesting when they were zipping around to fast for you to see them properly, and ripping apart enemy solders just off screen, but they ended up being more annoying then anything one you actually fight them I thought, I'm not sure if it's in all parts of the game, but there guys just seemed to spam indefinitely, after killing ten of them the first time they showed up I was sick of em already.
but anyway, over all, I'd say the games not half bad at all and kind of fun and worth a go if your pc is up to it.
