I'm picking the game up after work today but so far I see a lot of people enjoying it. The PC version of F.E.A.R. 2 apparently has some bugs a patch needs to fix, but a lot of people have been praising the MP.

I dont care for it when you get shot and you are looking down the sights your gun goes everywhere so its best to blind fire which to me isnt fun.

plus the melee attacks dont do anything.

Yeah, a lot of people hold games up to the CoD and Halo standards. When a game dares to be different, the community goes nuts. Just because you aren't as good at FEAR as you are in CoD or Halo, doesn't make it a bad game...just makes you one sided

I certainly HOPE it doesn't play like either of those games...or any other shooter for that matter. Why the F**K would I even want to play it if it was just like everything else? If I wantefd to play CoD or Halo...don't you think I would pop those games in? I am personally sick to death of every shooter being a knockoff of the one that came out 5 minutes before it. This game is original...has original mechanics and I will be sorely disappointed if it play ANYTHING like all those other games.

I love it. I played a bunch of matches last night and had a blast. My only beef is R3 = crouch. L3 = crouch dammit. The grenade physics are fun as hell. And no hoarding 10 med paks. I do miss the HEADSHOT guy though.

Can anyone explain to me how to change the Host Options in a ranked match? Is it possible? I couldn't figure out how to change stuff like friendly fire or even the length of the match. Can you only set that up in player matches?

I kinda agree that there could be some improvements but I haven't played to make a whole decision. But Ican tell you for sure that I don't like the way they set weapons.

Played the game at a friends house for a few hours and loved it.
Its faster paced, and very grenade friendly so be aware.

From what I understand FEAR isn't a very "popular" series, and tends to have a core following, which leads to a rather short lifespan online compared to the COD's and Gears.

If you are planning on picking it up do so now imo.

I'm going to have to agree. I was such a huge fan of the first FEAR's multiplayer that I was slightly disappointed in this new one. The way the character moves takes some getting use to if you played a lot of the old one, its just very different. We are still enjoying the crap out of it though

I wouldn't say it is garbage. I seem to suck at it for some reason. I thought it was because I had never played FEAR before but u guys seem to say it is different from the original anyway. I am usually ok at online fps but for some reason I am crap at this. I will keep at it for a few days and see if I improve. I find it so hard to get kills unless I use frag grenades or turrets. One thing that does annoy me is a shotgun should be a one hit kill at point blank range but it seems to take atleast 2 even at point blank.

Which other game would you compare this to? What ever you are comparing it to, is why you think it sucks!

i wasnt hoping it would be just like the first fear but in a way i was also hoping it would be like the first fear.

the best way to discribe it would be that its just a very bland experience.

if you played the first fear online you know what i mean.

Try the First Fear game on the PC?

There was absolutely nothing like it on the PC at the time of its release. All we had then was COD 2. Well we know how that was.

Yeah, I gotta agree with you there kemic, I played this when it first came out for the PC and totally loved the game, great story and graphics, a real kick ass game for sure. I must say though, why on earth have monolith decided to change the control layout and restrict what you can do with the MP settings, seems strange to me but its definately worth playing.
