    [Playstation 3] FEAR 2: Project Origin



    Release date: 2/10/09
    WB/Monolith
    Price: $9.99 (Used)

    It was 2005 when we were first introduced to a little 8 year old girl named Alma. What happened to this girl was never exactly known.......until now.
    In FEAR 2 you will find out why Alma is so angry and why you are not dead......

    Graphics - 9.25/10
    FEAR 2 comes out with some extremely smooth textures. Unlike in the first game where you could really see those jagged edges. The lighting and environments are very beautifully detailed and there is also a ton of blood. All of the character models are top notch.
    Sound - 10/10
    In a game like this the sound is so very important. Luckily the sound is absolutely perfect. The sounds really creep you out while you play. Walking through a dark hallway with the lights flickering and you hear faint cries and screams. You hear doors open and close and little footsteps running behind you. There is no better experience than playing this game with full surround sound.
    The other sounds like explosions, gun fire, and voice acting are superb. Some of the best voice acting is in this game.
    Gameplay - 9.25/10
    One of the new features in FEAR 2 is the ability to use your surroundings for cover. Down the hall you see 3 or 4 enemies heading your way and you have nothing to hide behind, tip a soda machine on its side and use it for cover. Lots of things can be used this way in the game.
    The enemy A.I. is much improved too. Do not get used to having your flashlight on too much or you will notice fairly quickly. Shooting the enemy will cause them to dive or kick something over for cover. Of course there are still those bad guys that do not know they are being shot at.
    The controls are very fluid and comfortable as well. The game also offerst trophies online and off to help keep that replay value higher.
    Multiplayer - 8.25/10
    I went and played a few rounds of deathmatch and I was surprised at how much fun I had. Normally going online I would get confused as to what I need to equip (COD games) but in FEAR 2 it was easy to select what weapons I wanted to start out with and start blasting. There was absolutely zero lag when playing but this was also just an 8 player deathmatch. (16 player max) I managed to finish in 2nd getting 31 kills with 20 deaths. There is 9 maps right now and few types of modes. Kind of reminded me of Halo minus all the cheaters and glitches.
    There is a leaderboard which shows yours kills and deaths which is nice but this game is no substitute for COD or the upcoming Killzone 2.


    Overall - 9/10
    The moment you put this game in your console you will be glued to the story, graphics, and great game play. I love games that make me sit on the edge of my seat and FEAR 2 definitely delivers. Toss in a bunch of trophies to earn offline and online and you got yourself a very decent game to hold you off till Killzone 2 comes out.
    This game gets Lethal's Stamp of Approval!

    Never judge a demo. Graphics do not make a game great. How do you know that FEAR 2 does not have a better story and controls? I can tell you that the demo of Killzone 2 had very loose controls but I am not about to judge a demo for any game.

    And clearly I can not compare my review with Killzone 2 because I do not have the retail copy of this game. If the game came out before my review then possibly my score would change a little. The story and funfactor of FEAR 2 will remain a 9 from me though.

    Another thumbs up eh? Good points about your review. I've played this at a friends house, and was ok with it. Not a purchase for me, but only because of all the other games I have to buy lol.

    Good review mate

    Completely agree with the final outcome - its definitely gone on from the demo to not only surprise me, but to really impress me too.

    The AI is magnificent later as well, there's some awesome stuff going on. Creepy and action-packed.

    Made chapter 9 yesterday and keeps getting better

    I'm enjoying this game, just wish they had include the option for custom controls!

    If anyone finds a way to edit them let me know!

    Yeah, if he wants to judge Demo's, Killzone obviously had better graphics but Fear had far better controls. Also, the Fear demo is far more varied and actually is somewhat scary at points. AI seems about a draw.

    I think my problem is that I just went through Bioshock collecting trophies and I was used to using L1 and R1. Using L2 and R2 is not bad, it just feels weird to me lol

    Endgame - I agree with you.

    I agree, I'm talking about R3 being crouch instead of Circle, and Melee being Circle instead of R3. Sucks! I'm too used to Cod4.

    I am not quite sure. There are some new types but I only played 2 games of deathmatch. I can look up the gametypes for you though.
