Finished up, the singer player in fear 2 and was kinda pissed. Anyone else think they overdid it, with the girl popping up every 2 seconds, and these things popping out ever 5 seconds? rofl.

    Didn't like it at all.

    Was more like:

    Scary part of 5 min.
    Shooting for 30 min.
    repeating.

    Hmm.. I cannot say as I didn't finish the game yet, but anyway, I think the beggining of the game is good.

    There's no such thing as too much action in a FPS. There's only too little horror.

    The devs say that they can only use a scare atleast once, I think that it's complete bullshit the way they recycled the old scary bits and just gave it a makeover and called it FEAR 2.

    Don't get me wrong, some of the scares are well timed and kept me on the edge of my seat, but it's nothing new. You can watch the scary maze game 20 times and still jump that little bit, that's what FEAR 2 is like, it has repetitive scares that somehow keep getting you. Some are so obvious you can just look at a doorway and say "Oh Alma's there, how surprising." and walk through and get on with the game.

    The overdone bits were the hunter things, they came out of every dark corner and there were far too many in a single area, I guess the devs got the most feedback from these guys so they flooded half the maps with them. Not to mention that they completely suck ass when you know they're there.

    And the constant transition from horror to action is just bad, one second, you're fighting ghosts and being teleported to the artificial playground, the next you're shooting a million replicas in a random facility. And mixing them for the final level was just bad.

    Good series, but FEAR 2 isn't a prime example for it.

    The only scare that ever got me was when I was walking through an empty corridor, looked behind me, saw nothing, looked again a few seconds later and she was there 1 inch away.

    I tried not to look back after that.

    Agreed. Those fucking ghost sections were almost as annoying as the aliens in Crysis. It's all like, "hey, let's just run through the same dark shitty map with infinte ghost things to distract you from actually being able to play a good game!"
    I liked the rest of it, but jesus, whoever thought the ghosts were a good idea is a smacktard.
    Also, the ending was weak as hell. Felt like a $50 punch to the junk.

    -.- Thanks for spoiling the story for me. I just got it and I have been wondering WTF killed the guys in the beginning... Now I don't want to play it anymore.

    Anyway, I only played the demo and that was enough to scare me. I get scared easy...

    Thats actually your fault for opeing a fear 2 thread before you played it. I really didn't ruin any of the story either, because the ghosts don't kill anyone. it's not like I said that *SPOILER* alma kind of rapes you at the end, you don't kill her and she will eventually have your baby *SPOILER* THAT would be ruing the story.

    As for me, it wasn't enoguh scary as the 1st one -_-
    It was kinda funny when you turn people into the forcemeat :D This is really fun when enemy's head is blowing up and blood spreads so far :D This is very fun and there were not so many scare moments in the game. The most scary was in the 1st mission, when they are in the APC -_-.

    I'm dissapointed in scares.

    I thought it was a lot better than the first game. At least this game could scare me compared to the last one. Overall I feel that there was a good balance of horror/action, but I wanted more horror.

    I haven't jumped during the whole game so far.

    The first one was so bad, and I have to laugh at people that expected this one to be any better. I dont wanna go on a rant but I can type pages as to why both games were equally bad.

    Graphics were the only thing good about either.

    Just my opinion, if anyone wants to flame me fuck off.

    ...your prob right. We all have our opinions and theres no right or wrong. Besides when someone calls a game "good" or "bad" and it goes against majority they are considered "wrong". So I guess neither of us will be reviewing games.

    Read the last line of my first post a few times. And dont quote me cuz I aint looking anymore.

    Graphics were the only thing good about either.

    I enjoyed FEAR 2, I think it was awesome cause there where more different enemies than in FEAR 1.

    I got scared a couple of times, and the graphics was amazing and I've nearly never seen a detailed game like that, there was a model for everything.

    I got more scared in the demo, when all the ghosts where like "Whaaa!" everywhere. I like to turn of the light and the volume so high that I jumped for nothing.

    It sure is a quality game.

    I liked FEAR 2, But i agree it was overdone
    I mean- Seroiusly
    The beginiing was good
    And the ending was "Fucking" Weak. I mean, It wasnt understandble. So as alma, she always kept on appearing which kind of gave the scare away.
    Some parts are just over done and weak of FEAR 2

    You mean Repetitive

    And I don't think it is. I think it has a good mix of scary things, from enemies scaring you, to the little and big Alma. I mean, there's not many ways to scare, since they used 'em all in FEAR, and the expansions.

    Didn't like it at all.

    Was more like:

    Scary part of 5 min.
    Shooting for 30 min.
    repeating.


    This is the basic there for FEAR throughout most of its games =\
    Does piss me off that they can ruin such a great game.

    It was like Resident Evil 4, I think they even had the same animations for some parts, yet it seemed fine to me, it's just that the PC version mouse sensitivity was a bit too low, but I got used to it. People complain about the most minor details, the game was pretty good and I had no problem with camera or controls.
