First I have to say that Fear 2 was actually made for the PS3 and the XBOX 360 because this one takes advantage of what the system can offer. The lighting and sound are superb. But what seemed most important to the team is that blood is wet.
Yep....Fear 2 is juicy.
Blood drips everywhere in this one, no matter if it is a gunshot wound or if it is a superheated corpse from Alma, this game is gruesome and not in the funny ha-ha gore of Fallout 3, this game is serious and it creates some chilling imagery. I have never seen a game that captured the slick....juicy...goo of blood so very, very well.
The game also features some great physics which are well used when Alma shows up and hits you with her telekinesis. There is a fantasic moment wen you go to her old school and in unison with the lights going out all the lockers slam shot and furnature is being pushed along in the wake and it is creepy and cool (at least if you like good horror! ).
The game picks up right where FEAR left off, or rather a few minutes BEFORE FEAR left off. Now the bad news, if you did not play the first game you might get a little lost. The game seems to expect that you played the first one, or at least know the story.
The good news is, all the questions from part 1 like, "what the hell just happened????" are answered and answered pretty well. I think I am about at the halfway point of the game and I finally know just what the heck Armacham was trying to do with Alma and what the hell a Replica IS!
It's also nice to finally know just why poor Point Man from the first game seemed to go insane so quickly!
This game is amazing and I think I finally have a Shooter that beats my beloved Max Payne and Elite Force.
