I finished Fear 2 in a 13 hour run on normal difficulty, here are the thoughts.

Story
The game's story has a good balance of your team, yourself (Michael Becket) and Alma. It does continue the story from 30mins before the end of Fear 1 onward. There are never any cutscenes, it's all from first person, which definitely works as it does in other games.

If you haven't played Fear 1 you won't understand the whole back story, but get enough information to understand it in general... which is good enough, same applies to all franchises (eg Halo) really.

I won't summarise the story here, read wikis.

The end of the game is not a complete end, there is a twist that feels like something not well thought through by the developer... but it does allow there to be a fear 3 if I understood it right.

Shooter/Horror
The game is a solid shooter, gives you sections of controlling a Mech, sections of sniping, sections of general infantry and a solid choice with weapons.

The mech sections felt like they could have been better, I found them a little disappointing due to confined locations. But when you consider the city is destroyed... sort of understandable.

The horror theme is great at the start of the game, a good balance between spooky jumpy stuff, Alma (I !@#$% myself) sequences and shooting sequences. However, the more it goes on, every now and then you get what seems to be never ending shooting sequences that personally made me want to stop playing because it was getting boring. That's not a bad thing as such, it is a FPS.

But regardless of that balance change, you discover new enemies and see things happen and things attack you that remind you that you're playing a horror title so don't get too relaxed.

Graphics
The graphics for the game in all areas are excellent. Attention to detail and texture quality is excellent. Gore is absolutely awesome and believable. The blood splatters on walls are excellent, enemies exploding is beautiful. The placing of objects in levels are perfect, the level design itself is for the most part excellent.

Other stuffs
There are only loading screens between story intervals. Keeps you on the edge with no break for a long time.

It is a solid shooter, and at most times a great horror title too, but it isn't the game of the year.

My rough score: 7.5/10

If you plan to play the game, or have done so, or have any thoughts, post =).

You could've spent three seconds googling the title to find out that, yes, the game is available for PC, as well as PS3 and Xbox 360.
