The amount of fire-arms training that Delta Force operators receive borders on legendary, yet the player-character and his team members, all of whom are supposed to be members of Delta Force, commit basic firearms safety errors including: keeping their fingers on the triggers of their weapons without having a target in sight, casually pointing their weapons at each other while riding in the APC, and storing loaded weapons in the APC (these are visible behind the driver). Anyone who has completed Basic Combat Training, let alone Delta Force selection, would have enough knowledge of firearms not to commit these errors. See more »

Gallons of blood, tons of action, but misses the original's creepy atmosphere
15 March 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

4 years passed since the first F.E.A.R., which was a unique First Person Shooter game with well-written story, creepy atmosphere, surprisingly clever AI and brutally spectacular action scenes. Besides the set up was familiar from the japan horror movies and/or from the Matrix, it was a genuine game with lots of suspense and gore.

The sequel meant to be at least as good as the original and the questions left behind had some great potential, but unfortunately this sequel doesn't grew up for the expectations. It became just a gory, old-school shooter with a surprisingly short Single Player campaign and a worthless multiplayer mode. Monolith has made some really creepy games, just like Aliens VS Predator 2. They made clever games, just like No One Lives Forever. But Project Origin is neither. It's just a louder game with more enemy and blood, but with a less intelligent AI, a repulsive atmosphere and the total lack of suspense. Huge disappointment.
