F.E.A.R 2 and 3

F.E.A.R 2
For the PS3,Xbox 360,PC(is a psychological horror 1st person shooter video game
From start to finish F.E.A.R. 2 is a finely tuned experience that builds tension when needed, before releasing it all in a series of stunning fire fights.
As well as the horror is handled here it's the combat that steals the show, with Monolith giving you the tools to quite spectacularly rip enemies apart. I might be teetering extremely close to hyperbole, but I haven't played an FPS with weapons as satisfying to shoot as those found here. Combat in FEAR 2 feels meaty and downright brutal, downed enemies slump over whatever breaks their fall and the environments are blown to pieces by a stream of bullets.
Throw in what is still the best use of slow-motion I've seen in a video game (it's hard to pinpoint why it's so good, but it just feels right) and you'll find yourself replaying sections for the sheer thrill of it. Whether you've got a standard scoped assault rifle, a one-shot kill head-popping sniper rifle, the stupendous Penetrator bolt gun or the flesh frying laser gun, the simple act of shooting is always fun and satisfying. And because of the fear factor, you'll find yourself pummelling enemies with far more bullets than really necessary, just to make sure they don't get up again.
Monolith's original entry in the series impressed in part due to its advanced enemy AI, so similar quality in this area in the sequel shouldn't come as a surprise. Enemies will attempt to take up strong defensive positions in the environment, often tipping over furniture to make better cover, and try to flush you out of hiding with a well placed grenade. There's great enemy variety too, with the expected soldiers being joined by mutated leaping monstrosities (one of the enemies you're guaranteed to waste a load of ammo on), cloaked ninjas able to kill you in seconds (think the Predator, just more nimble and therefore more able to freak you out) and full-on mechs trying to send you to an early grave - mechs you get to pilot at numerous points in the campaign. The addition of Mech is very good but be aware that the bad guy have arms to get you out of the mech.
After you've settled into F.E.A.R. 2's groove (it does feel somewhat different to the majority of shooters out there), you'll find you won't want to leave. There's a certain blood-stained beauty in storming into a room, clocking four armed guys, activating slow mo, lobbing in a grenade, taking out three of them with stunning shots to the head from a close range shotgun, and then watching as the last is obliterated by the explosion. It's combat that never gets old and is more or less unrivalled. In full flow F.E.A.R. 2 looks and sounds brilliant too, bettering the original in every way, but it is a step below the very best looking games available
Rated 8.5 

 F.E.A.R 3Fear3 For the PS3, XBox360 and the PC
Fear 3 is a psychological horror 1st person shooter video game
Nine months after the events of both games, the Point Man was captured by Armacham Security Personnel and interrogated in an asylum. Paxton Fettel interrupts the interrogation and helps free the Point Man. The two form an uneasy alliance and escape the Asylum through the slums.
Don’t worry all the slow motion is back including a snap too cover system, All the guns are back.The AI is ok,they try to get at you by taking cover and try to get behide you. And for a first time a good online game play.
Commandeering a helicopter, the Point Man and Fettel return to Fairport to regroup with F.E.A.R. operative Jin Sun-Kwon. During their return, the civilian population that survived were either driven insane by the paranormal activity or were executed by Armacham personnel. Fighting their way through, the brothers successfully meet up with Jin. Jin plays back recorded video footage of Michael Becket , who revealed his rape by Alma and is slated by Armacham for transport.
Using an automated transport, the Point Man and Fettel assault the local airport to intercept Becket, killing the remnants of the Armacham personnel. In order to gain more intel from Becket, Fettel possesses him and reveals Becket's past life to the Point Man while Becket realizes the Point Man's identity. Fettel's release of Becket proves fatal, causing a explosion. The Point Man and Fettel head to an old training facility used by Harlan Wade years ago to study and develop the prototypes, where the two start to destroy items associated with memories of their childhood past to inflict damage on the lingering echo of Harlan Wade known as "The Creeper." Shortly after destroying a monstrous apparition of Wade, one of two endings are possible, depending on multiple factors. For single-player, a good and evil ending occurs depending on whether the player has controlled the Point Man or Fettel. Alternatively, if played during co-op, the player with the higher score determines the ending. The good ending will show Point Man overpowering Fettel and vice-versa, with the ending depending on whether Point Man or Fettel had survived their final struggle.
The Point Man ending has him shooting Paxton in the head three times and watching his body spontaneously burn itself up. Then, as he walks over to Alma, ready to finish the job, he notices that her baby has been successfully born. Alma's body then disappears, with the Point Man receiving a transmission from Jin that everything is finally over, thanking him for his efforts. With the baby in the crook of his left arm, he leaves the room.
The Paxton Fettel ending has Paxton possessing Point Man's body and somehow extracting the baby from Alma's swollen body. He promises to raise the child like it was his own, but sets it aside as he notices Alma. Fettel then pounces on his mother, violently killing her.
I like the 2nd games of this series the best because of the longer single player game. I was really expecting more from this game,Oh well maybe the next one?? LOL Rated 8.0



  1. These games are great to play.I like the 3rd one better.

  2. Its a good shooter...I hope that they have some dlc for the 3rd one. Which is better the ps3 or the Xbox version?

    1. Just pick the cheaper one.I play it only the XBox 360,put most likely they are the same.But I can't be for sure.
