F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a survival horror game in which you take the role of a soldier that wants to know about the origin of Alma

It has a nice campaign but it's a little bit too repetitive for me, but equally it's a nice game

I'll give a 8/10

This game was fun not as great as part 1 though, and the slo mo i did not use at all threw the whole game.
The story pits you into the nuke site pretty cool game not as scary as part 1 and the end is wtf... pretty lame. The mech suit is bad ♥♥♥ and you also get to go on a apc and shoot the crap out of ♥♥♥♥, the invisible ♥♥♥♥ was crap, the expansion i recommend you get when its on sale as 10 bucks for 3 maps is too much but it does put you in
as a replicant pretty dope and you get to see jets bomb run and shoot down helicopters. This game was not as scary and not as fun as part 1. I would give it a 8 out of ♥♥♥♥ it. The vs was dead when i played this , so I cant review that, im sure it would be fun for a quick lan play if you get enough people.

If you haven't played part 1 don't play this crap. If you are a fan of F.E.A.R. series then you have to play this crap.

I have strange feelings about this franchise. I hate the first FEAR and refund my money back. After playing the game there is only very bad emotions and anger left inside me. So I have very strange feeling because i love the sequel as much how i hate the first one. I can't explain why but i just get myself smiling while i fight through my way and i enjoy the gunfight very well ! The paranormal effects didn't annoying and sometime works well and sometimes i just laughing on it. The whole game works for me while the prelude did not. If you don't played FEAR and FEAR 2 read the story of the first one then play the second !

This game seriously f|_|cked up my brain. The hailed ai is a b|_|llsh|t anyway. It's just irritating and fustrating bad. The big essence of it : just drop enemies behind the player and respawn units from nowhere... This totally break the mood and make me seriously angry and kill athmosphere...

After finishing the game only positive feelings left and i recommend to anyone. This is a great game !

F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin is the sequel to the “classic” F.E.A.R. and I don't have much to say in the way of a traditional review. Its a shooter, its kind of cookie cutter but a kind of weird shaped one that is sort of intriguing so you play with it a bit.

This game continues the story from one but it doesn't really add much to me. Its sort of blasé. I didn't find myself engaged with it really at all. The horror elements are also lackluster. I don't recall a single moment where I felt much tension. In fact there was an area clearly designed to be scary in which the lights flashed on and off while apparitions bombarded the room only occasionally doing damage. In this cacophony of confusion I was not frightened, nor did I feel tension. The enemies had become a nuisance and I was unable to easily distinguish a path let alone the correct one.

As far as hallway shooters go.. its fine. The guns feel good. People die. Slow motion will always be awesome. There are more modern touches for this game than the first with iron sights. However older elements like leaning have been removed.

THE GIST
As a game on its face. Its still very fun. Shooting people in slow motion will be a staple of action games forever. But as a whole I feel very “meh” regarding the whole game. Especially in comparison to one.

This section isn't really part of the review per se, It's more of a rant

I feel like this game has suffered the proverbial “consolization” process. I feel as though it has lost its soul. As in the developers had their original vision in F.E.A.R. 1 made the game they wanted and are now forced to take that vision and pull on and stretch it to create more content. I feel very strongly about Crysis 1 compared to Crysis 2 and the reason I bring this up is that I feel the same thing has happened here. Both sequels took away what made the original games so unique in exchange for a standard cookie cutter hallway shooter.

And I get it. From a business standpoint no one is ever going to say throw away what makes a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of money for something more creative and unique. Unless the formula really has gotten stale and a new IP actually is the better risk assessment for staying in business. I understand that businesses need to make a profit in order to take risks.

At the end of the day I still recommend this game because it is fun. Its mindless and I hate to repeat myself but shooting people in the face in slow motion is really fun. There are also some mech and turret sequences with some really ironic music playing in the background that are sort of qwerky in an endearing way.

It just feels a little soulless.

Granted, I finished this game in basically 2 sittings; yesterday and today; May 1-2, it was a fantastic experience. There were answers and tidbits of information throughout, there was atmosphere, some occasional scares, sci-fi mystery, the action is far better than the first FEAR thanks to things like iron sights and select fire as well as the different grenades/explosives you have at your disposal. The story was, for me, quite engaging. I was very interested in finding out how things progressed, and the end had me looking forward to FEAR 3. Well, you can check my review on that if you like, but here's the several paragraphs of hatred summed up in 2 words: It Sucked.

I find FEAR 2 to be by far the best in the series, FEAR 1 is 2nd best with monotonous but acceptable combat as well as great atmosphere, and FEAR 3 is... well, let's not ruin the moment by bringing that up again. I wholeheartedly suggest getting this game, and while I think it'd be good to play FEAR 1 first, I definitely think this game can be enjoyed without doing things chronologically. Just... make sure you STOP at FEAR 2, unless you don't give a ♥♥♥♥ about story or firearm realism, just wanting to blow stuff up with the occasional little needless spook from Alma or other unexplained monsters. Maybe FEAR 4 won't suck... but if it still focuses on that ridiculous 'brother' nonsense, screw that...

If it is too silent, something is horrible wrong.
Hint: At the end of this review you will find a TL;DR and a video section.

----------------------------------------------------------------

●▬▬▬▬▬[➤ REVIEW]▬▬▬▬●

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a shooter in ego-perspective with horror elements, which was developed by Monolith Productions and published through Warner Bros. in February 2009, 4 years after the previous game. It is the direct sequel to F.E.A.R and besides of the two add-ons from F.E.A.R the second main game in the series. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is available for Windows, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

The plot revolves around Alma, a supernatural being with powerful psychic skills, who wants to destroy those who experimented with her. The player jumps into the role of Michael Becket, a Delta Force operator who is sent to take Madame Aristide into the so-called protective custody just before the end events from the previous game happen. Alma tries to exchange the reality with that of hers, so Becket and his squad need to hinder and destroy her. A race against time begins and nothing is like it seems at the beginning. To fully understand and follow the complete plot it is necessary to play through F.E.A.R. 1. The add-ons can be skipped.

Generally speaking of the gameplay, the main elements were taken over from the original. This includes the now improved martial arts, vaulting over objects, slow-motion, improvable health and reflex time, as well as an enhanced A.I. The possibility to aim down sights is now added, which was in F.E.A.R 1 only limited to a general zoom by raising up the weapon a bit. New weapons, such as a sniper rifle, rocket launcher, lasergun and more found their way into the game, while the pistol, shotgun and new grenades got an overall more futuristic look. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin introduces the player also to an ridable vehicle called "Armored Suit". This suit regenerates itself over time, has a primary and secondary weapon and is accessable twice in the game.
Surprisingly though, leaning to left and right is now removed, for which now the character is able to flip over different objects to hide behind it. This is already known from the A.I. in F.E.A.R 1 and fairly well executed. Speaking of which: The A.I. is still as smart as in the predecessor. In groups they try to flank the character, search for cover behind walls and pillars as well as flip over objects to create the same cover as the player. From time to time they suffer from minor problems like rushing into the spread of fire from the player but are over all very challenging, especially at higher difficulty.
One negative aspect is the missing option to save manually in a game. In fact, F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin has a lot of fair placed checkpoints and the option to select a mission at the main menu but the possibility to save at any time is a huge factor in modern games for some to play through a game. Also, the character is now only able to carry around 3 medkits at once, a huge cut down compared to F.E.A.R 1's possibility to carry 10 medkits at once.

Graphically, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is not a huge difference to F.E.A.R 1, caused from the same engine both games are running on. Yet. through LithTech: Jupiter EX with a modified Havok Physics engine, the game uses two different mappings. The normal and parallax mapping, which give textures a little more realistic appearance and depth to e.g. bullet holes on the walls. Complex lighting effects were possible through a volumetric lighting plus pixel and high-level shaders, which are highly used in the second game. Different to the previous game are also destroyable surroundings, such as pillars and doors with the help of explosive barrels nearby.
Also, the HUD changed and appears like the player would look through special vision glasses from the character. Sadly, there is no option to turn it off or change it but does not interupt the atmosphere once the player is used to it.

Soundwise the game scores with clean and thrilling soundeffects and music. A whisper here, a noticeable moaning in the dark corners there, Alma's speech and some objects falling down the ground behind the character let the hair stand on end and give the already strong atmosphere in some rooms the last polish.

To cover everything up: F.E.A.R. 2: Project glares with the same strong elements as F.E.A.R 1 did before. The A.I. gives the game the challenge it deserves and adds a lot of action to it, but never feels like it is too action-packed. At times Alma visits the party to drive terror in the heart of the player and refreshes the already deep atmosphere from this game. The story could be a bit deeper but for this, a third follow-up is awaiting the player.

Absolutely worth the buy for fans from the F.E.A.R series.

●▬▬▬▬▬[➤ RÉSUMÉ]▬▬▬▬●

While reading a lot of negative comments for F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin, I was a bit worried at first when I started the game. There was the talk of missing scare-moments, lack of story and way too action-packed compared to F.E.A.R 1. Now, after finishing both games I can't really say that F.E.A.R 2 has so much more action and even less thrilling moments. The contrary is the case here, caused from the deep atmosphere and even greater thrilling moments in the game thanks to the even oftener appearing from Alma and her friends. F.E.A.R 1 was, if I think about it again, also very action-packed and not a huge differents to the follow-up. The story was not the deepest I've ever seen, but stood strong while going through the game. I have to mention that I've played through it in one go, what is very unusual for me.

In my opinion, Monolith Production did nearly everything right with the follow-up and is absolutely worth the current price tag. For around 15$/€ the player gets 6 hours of action, thrill and an stunningly disturbing end that turns everything you know upside down.

Highly recommended!

●▬▬▬▬▬[➤ TL;DR]▬▬▬▬●

[✔] Main gameplay-elements were taken over from previouse game
[✔] Improved moves, such as prober vaulting over objects, meele etc.
[✔] Added 'Aim Down Sights' and flip over objects to cover
[✔] Enhanced A.I. that acts smart
[✔] New weapons and one ridable vehicle
[✔] Overall improved graphics and great sounds

[✖] Missing option to save at any time
[✖] Only able to carry 3 medi-kits at once
[✖] Lack of deeper story
[✖] Some moves are removed, such as leaning right and left and slow walk

This was my first game that i bought and it definitely worth the money so it is no brained to buy it on sale! Despite GameSpy closed the master server the multiplayer is not dead. There is a small but active community so we will be glad if you join us so we can have action like in good old times. :) To join us you will need to download and install Tunngle (select the free version), register on Tunngle forum, verify your e-mail address and you are good to go. Launch Tunngle, click on button: Play your Game and search for: F.E.A.R. 2 (all capital letters and space between last dot and number 2). You can add the game to your bookmarks so you do not have to always search for it. No worries if you do not find any players in the FEAR2 Tunngle room, just wait there and someone will join sooner or later. :)

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin сама по себе очень даже отменный ужастик. Многим кажется, что предыдущие части были лучше, и я, пожалуй, соглашусь с ними. Первый F.E.A.R. завоевал большую популярность, и это неудивительно: ужасающая (в хорошем смысле) атмосфера, заставляющая бояться даже собственных шагов, умные противники, различные "пугалки", отличный экшен, блестящий саундтрек, классный сюжет. Вторая часть немного отличается, атмосфера немного иная, но тем не менее, игра доставляет удовольствие от прохождения: местами есть где попугаться. Как поклоннику серии F.E.A.R. игра мне очень понравилась, проходить было точно не скучно.
