Rated 10 out of 10 by Duncan of Gondor Great Game
First of all, I played the demo for F.E.A.R. 2. I absolutely loved everything about it. Unfortunately I lacked the cash to buy it. Seeing as it was only $20 for the first of the games I bought it immediately. There were a few things that bothered me. The major issue for me was the way the steps work. No matter how fast you move, your feet move at the same speed. The head bob contributes to the suck of this. If you turn down the head bob to zero then it is no big deal. The gameplay is superb. There are a few minor weirdnesses in the controls such as the R2 and L2 buttons are the triggers instead of R1 and L1. You get used to it after a few minutes though. The psychological horror is not as intense as the second game but it is still there. Graphics are not the best but seeing as it is a port of a PC game they are decent. Overall, the few shortcomings of this game are far outweighed by the great gameplay and storyline and I would recommend it for anybody.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PSNSonicshot213 Great Scary shooter
F.E.A.R. is a port or a pc game for the PS3 and Xbox 360. its a great shooter with a pretty terrifying story line and keeps you on your toes through out most of the game. you never know when someone is around the corner. In the first level you get knocked out by a freaky looking dude with a fire extinguisher. It;'s great I have heard alot of people complain about its graphics now I haven't seen the graphics to the 360 or pc version but to me it looks great and most of the time you'll be to into the action or trying to not get surprised by an enemy to notice. Now the negatives the load times are very annoying they are LONG and when you die you don't even get a nice fade to black scene or anything it just skips you back to a mission log screen and that just kinda sucks. Overall I think it's a great shooter to give a try it'll keep you on edge.
Rated 3 out of 10 by CakesDontLie Save your money, many better games......really
Honestly, this was just not fun or good at all. For starters, there are many other great games around this range. Examples: dark sector, bionic commando, resistance:fall of man, street fighter 4, and many more. Furthermore, the map/areas in this game were very bulky and objects would have that bad out-dated invisible force field perimeter around them. This applied not only to random objects in the distant areas but things that would be used as legitimate platforms/defensive structures (since the game was a shooter after all). The gameplay in general was not very appealing: bad guns, annoying computer/ai to fight against (and not even in the challenging way, and lastly, the health system was just not efficient. The slow-mo affect, i must admit, was cool but it was really the only good thing i found in this game. I tried to get into on numerous occasions but just couldn't. Please, (reader) do yourself a favor and get a different game, or just save up a bit more and get a game that would actually be very enjoyable. This game is outdated and dysfunctional in so many way. Have enough self respect not to waste your money on this one.
Rated 7 out of 10 by AdventChild Slow-Mo, Horror, Fun?
I purchased these game awhile ago and i found it pretty enjoyable. If your a fan of survival-horror games or just like to be scared, you might like these game. I think that the story is okay, but sometimes found myself saying, "What?!" or "Huh?!" alot. There are some parts in the game that will have you jump at times or get creeped out, but nothing too extreme. This game is pretty difficult at times. I would find myself dying multiple times, trying hopefully to get to the next widely-spaced checkpoint. This game is long, the graphics are 'mmhh', and the sound is great (except when you try to hear people speak over the intercom or listen to messages on the telephones). There is multiplayer, but nothing special. All and all, if you like scary games with wierd storylines, you just might enjoy this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by EVL0517 F.E.A.R.- R.O.C.K.S. !!!
When I first picked up F.E.A.R. 2 I really didn't know what to expect out of this game. I'm really into games that shock you and have on the edge of your seat while playing ( always a good incentive when choosing any game).
After playing F.E.A.R. 2 I was really anxious going back and picking up the first one. I was very surprised to find out the first one and F.E.A.R files were equally as good as the second one. I also got F.E.A.R 3 about 3 months ago and these games get better and better every time I play them. The graphics are superb and the sound quality is fantastic especially running through a 5.1 surround sound system, you hear all kinds of eerie noises and sounds in the background that catch you off guard at many points of playing any of the F.E.A.R. games. so.. if you are really into first person shooters I highly recommend checking the F.E.A.R. series out. Even though I didn't give a 10 rating only because I have yet to play any game that has a perfect track record but, I do give this game a solid 9 across the board and do recommend it and any of the other F.E.A.R. games to anyone who is into gory and violent games like myself , you will not be disappointed.
Rated 8 out of 10 by omgpie123 Good game i recommended it.
The first day i got it i was confused until i got the hag of it and actually stated to suck less, the first time having my freaking out moment is what got me hooked to this game til the end. The graphics are OK, now if your the kind of guy that wants realist graphics then dont bother but its still fun. Gameplay is fun and addictive. a little work on the game would have been OK like graphic design update and sound.sill I recommend it and its worth your money sorry if i took you time hope you enjoy this review.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Gamerman225 FEAR!!!!
This game is one of the best shooter games i have ever played. For one thing the story mode is flawless. Also the shooting is very real. When you shoot someone in the leg for example, it will pop right off and blood will squirt out of the leg. I have to say it was pretty scary when the skeleton poped out at you in the blood pool. This is a great game I recomend it.

Honestly the whole time i played this was just one yawn after another and it surprised me considering that half life one and two were done by the same people and both of those are excellent honestly rent it first or don't just not the greatest game out there.
Rated 10 out of 10 by demyx29 very good and scary game
this game was really fun to play at night with the lights off and with surround sound because you would hear something come from behind you and you would be fliping out because you would think that there was in your house
Rated 8 out of 10 by sportfan15 Watch out
this game is great. one thing i must say is watch out for anything that might show itself to you or touch you from behind you or right in front of you. have fun. great game.
