imo the amount of effort developers put in this expansion is much less than the original two

As much as i love the original, i find both Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate to be better games.

I loved FEAR but I can wait for the real sequel. Not only are these a little too similar, but also the story doesn't even count considering Monolith is making a direct sequel to FEAR and not the expansions Sierra made without them.

Anyway, maybe I'm weird for caring about the story, and maybe I'm weird since other repetitive cash-ins like Shivering Isles get my devotion, but... not interested.

Even worse EA and Steam are switching to match local shelf prices.

Gamesmarket.com.au is still cheapest with free postage.

Finished it. The later levels were much better than the beginning.

Not a bad game fr $30 and it was much longer than I expected.

Finished the game.

The title of this game should have been "FEAR On The Cheap".

It's FEAR stripped down to bare bones. Voice acting is bad, like the programmer's doubled as voice actors. It's not pretty. Storyline is not bad if you can block out the horrible voice acting.

Game runs smooth maxed out.

More enemies to fight than FEAR and they are much harder to kill (takes many more hits to kill them). Too many hits actually, making it a bit unrealistic. Only a few Health and Reflex boosters to find. A couple of phone calls. As I said, it's stripped down.

At least I finished it so that says something. I couldn't even finish POS Payback.

Have they sorted the AA+Soft Shadow bugs that plagued the previous FEARs?

Dude, I didnt even make it 5 mins. MAYBE I will give Payback a whirl when I'm really bored or something...

I'm sure this cant be as bad as that....
