While not as good as the pinnacle of corridor shooting that had been the original FEAR, the sequel Project Origin maintains the original mechanics to continue exploring the story of the creepy Alma. It's basically more of the same stuff. But it's good stuff, so if you enjoyed the first FEAR you won't be disappointed by this.
I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first one. F.E.A.R. 2 is obsessed with fixing the mistakes of the first one and forgets about its true nature. Good news is that, what was good about the first one is mostly present in this second part. F.E.A.R. was a great horror game, but the sequel is not. It really tries to scare you, but it is like forcing it instead of letting it flow as it should. The redesign of Alma is not as good as you'd expect, and you will miss all those epic moments from the original one. I finished F.E.A.R. 2 and nowadays I don't remember any single horror themed situation while I can recall lots from the first one. It works like a great FPS, but considering the lack of horror in the title it looks like one more in a genre where you can find a million. What is still really worth it about F.E.A.R. 2 is the enemy's AI, still perfect like the first establishment. Not the best example of how to develop a sequel, but still good.
BUT it's not bad, like most of fan series and players are talking about it. Graphics looks even better than in previous games, shooting and slowmo are fantastic, intelligence of enemies looks even better if you ask me. Sadly, it felt for me like it's shorter AND, which is great disappointment - the fear in F.E.A.R. game is gone. Maybe because of some stuff that you wouldn't expect to see if you played previous game, or maybe because first F.E.A.R. used too many ways to scare players. Still, it's game worth playing, if you don't expect for it to be great horror fps game but only a great fps.
Set directly after the events of the original game, FEAR2 Project Origin makes you play as Becket, a Delta Force operative who was sent with his squad to Fairport in order to evacuate Armacham Technology Corporation’s CEO Genevieve Aristide. A simple mission that turned into a nightmare when the explosion of the Project Origin facility (End of FEAR1) occurred. There is no real surprise here for the players who have finished the original game. This sequel uses the same structure of intense FPS gunfights with horror sequences in between. Classic but efficient. However the mechs you can pilot from time to time is not that fun to use. The visuals are good (for its time) and the atmosphere is as good as ever (You must play it with your headphones on) FEAR 2 Project Origin is a great addition to the franchise.
FEAR 2 is a game that keeps you on edge the entire time. It has several moments of frantic panic and several moments of frights. It is action packed as well. The game changes up gameplay often enough to not get repetitive and to keep you interested. The story is very much tied to the 1st FEAR game and leads into the 3rd. If you do not play the 1st FEAR before this one, you will be lost, so pick up the 1st one as well. Overall this was a fun, well polished game and has me looking forward to playing the 3rd one.
