Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
A routine assignment to locate the president of Armacham Technology Corporation in connection with an unfolding hostage crisis turns into a desperate battle for survival after an explosion decimates the city and unleashes Alma Wade, the terrifying supernatural menace at the center of Armacham’s highly classified Project Origin. As Alma’s power swells out of control, special forces Sgt. Michael Becket and his squad must battle through an apocalyptic landscape of shattered buildings and buckled streets in search of clues for how to destroy her. The more Becket learns about Armacham’s secret experiments and reckless agenda, the more he begins to suspect that he’s somehow linked to the crisis and may be the only one capable of averting total disaster.

FEAR 2 continues the story from the previous game, FEAR. FEAR was probably one of the best horror shooting game when it was released and it was very ground breaking in terms of gameplay and story. FEAR 2 hopes to continues that and it did. While everything pretty much remains the same so nothing really ground breaking on this entry but nevertheless it is still a very solid entry game to the series. The game constantly trying to scare you with creepy elements and sounds. Definitely must get for another who enjoy a horror shooter.
Not my favorite part but it´s up there.AlbusDlx | July 17, 2013 | See all AlbusDlx's reviews »
Perseus mandate is my favorite f.e.a.r. But this is still an awesome game. It has been 4 years now and it still looks pretty good. Something to know, you can´t map mouse button 4, 5 etc. Only 1-3 works. F.E.A.R 3 might have some tessellation but this game still beats it visually. Hell of a lot scarier. So, if anyone reads this and only have played the last installment and if you happened to like it. F.E.A.R 2 Project Origin will buy the game for you and you should but it immediately. MP is pretty much dead by now, but SP well worth the 10 quid.

FEAR 2 is an interesting blend of FPS and horror game. I notice that many say it compares unfavorably to the first game, but in my opinion, it still compares favorably to the laundry list of generic FPS and horror games out there. I guess that's the risk when you change too much from the original to the sequel, but I think it's possible that many fans set their expectations too high.
Great but the Original is Betterthegaminglyfe | June 20, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
After 4 anxious years of waiting for a sequel, we finally get it. People really didn't like this game because it didn't meet the expectations of the original F.E.A.R but that doesn't mean it isn't a great. The graphics are much better and the game sounds very good. Most of the main features of the original game are still here like the slow motion. There are some new features like iron sights and making cover with the environment. The game is still scary but the problem is that you seem to expect it to happen. In the original F.E.A.R it happens at random times. You would be going down a ladder, you fall into water and suddenly Alma's right in front of you. In the second game, the game gets darker, scary music comes on and it gets too predictable. If you like the original F.E.A.R I recommend you get the sequel but don't be expecting a better game.
