This is wht happens when the release "trilogies"...the story is never complete, so is very lacking. I hate the whoel idea of "creating a franchise"...how about "creating original content"...

Damn Metacritic is getting in the way of good games, IMHO...

Ditto that. I love the FEAR games though. Quite fun to play.

This game is fun so far...

I must admit, the horror aspect is quite effective

Now I'm definitely going to have to get FEAR2!

Ya FEAR is great. I really liked using the melee attacks. Scissor kicking bad guys is fairly satisfying. Almost as much as the cinematic executions using slo-mo. Almost bought FEAR 2 today but went for Red Alert 3 instead. Gonna be doing the online co-op campaigns with a buddy.

Well, I'm on Interval 04 on FEAR 2...
So far, it does fell like more of the same, but like someone else stated, that's not a bad thing. The graphics are beautiful, the AI is pretty smart (play on a harder setting though), and the story is good.

I like it...BUT, I'd strongly recommend playing through the first one, it gives you a heads up on the story. Alma is one freaky chick!

As for FC2...It's like Grand Theft Auto in the jungle...I didn't like it. It's graphically stunning, but other than that, after the first Far Cry, it was a major let down.

I too have a decent list of games to get through

Bioshock...yup, a little slow on the uptake on this one...
COD: WaW...only really interested in the single player on this as I'm a COD4 junkie
Fallout 3...I've got about 10hours into this, it needs some more of my attention
GRID...I'm dying to get my licenses done...Make my car look better for online play!
I'm also going to play through the Half Life 2 games again...why not, they're great...

Anyways...for a single player game, so far, FEAR 2 get my thumbs up...

ARGH!!! I got Fear 2 but the idiot teller gave me the wrong version! Now I have to find a ride back to Owen Sound to get the PC Version. He wrapped up the Xbox 360 version...charged me 59.99 instead of the 49.99 for the PC Version...

I guess we are both to blame but sheesh......

The single player is great. On the other hand the multiplayer suffers severely form the way they developed the game for a console. They couldn't even release dedicated server files. If the single player is worth the $50 to you the game will probably be worth while. If you're looking to play it online after finishing the single player don't bother. (at least until they confirm or release dedicated server files)

Damn console ports

Enjoyed Fear 1 quite a bit, will most likely pick this up sometime soon.

and I might as well throw in my two cents about far cry 2, I could only play for about 2 hrs before I gave up. graphics were good, action was good, missions seemed too straightforward/boring though. On the other hand I absolutely loved fallout 3. But alas there are only so many hours you can play a singleplayer game for without getting tired of it.
