Fear 2 is a great sequel. The game is quick about 8 hours for the single player story. The game is enjoyable, and the environments are unique. Enemies have a lot more variety, one of the major issues with the original fear. Only negative is the end leaves many questions yet again. I would recommend this game if you have Gamefly, very enjoyable rental.

When I played the 1st F.E.A.R. I fell in love with the story! Controls are a breeze easy to grasp, also to mention the graphics are lush in deep blacks & whites. How the environments would fade to black & white with flashbacks. I couldn’t get enough! A very addicting game and I believe this game & developers will hopefully be around for a long-time running! Keep up the amazing work! In this 2nd installment, I must say, when controlling the Mech Assault-like robotic vehicle that your character jumps into on the 1st level alone, one word: AWESOME! I cannot stress that word enough.
You are instantly thrown in and start battling an identical armored robot. The fighting sequences/frame rates refreshed are top notch, the music becomes loud & deep bass. NOTE: (if you have a surround sound system, it probably will blow you out of the water!) I’ve become fond of the large selection of weapons, you can literally use up every clip of ammo from start to finish, without having to worry about running low on ammunition. That’s a certain freedom that even older generation games didn’t always have to offer, that’s a great feature to see in this! The storyline is deep, vast & I won’t give out any spoilers. For the 59.99 price tag, it’s honestly worth every penny. My hat is off to the developers, keep up the great work team! Thank you for reading Gamers. Happy Gaming!

This is a pretty good game and people will wonder why I would say a game is good and only give it a 6. The reason for the low score is that you have to take into account all aspects of the game and the multiplayer really drags the score of this game down. Single player is fun, never too frustrating and has some decent blood in it. The rooms in the game are a little too dark for my taste but that is how they are supposed to be since the game is trying to be scary, but it isnt. Controls are easy to grasp and they respond well. Online multiplayer is a mess. How come I can shoot someone 25 times in the face with a shotgun and they wont die but if you punch someone once they do. That is an unforgiveable flaw, why do we have guns if they dont work? There is no lobby to autumatically start games and let people join in once the game has started. You must wait for the host to start the game and once he/she does that is all the players you will get. If your entire team quits you're on your own the rest of the match. Rent this game for the single player, dont bother wasting time on the multiplayer. Look me up on xbox live: Shinedown 313
