Warner Bros Ent., the masters of releasing trailers in crappy image quality, are now releasing two gameplay videos from Project Origin (aka F.E.A.R. 2). The game is planned to be released this fall on Playstation 3, PC and Xbox 360.

My only fear (no pun, etc...) for this one is that movement isn't as PAINFULLY slow as the original. Or the expansion packs for that matter. Playing FEAR after another FPS such as HL2 or Doom 3, it seems as if the game is permanently stuck on bullet time mode in comparison.

Looks alright though, not exactly a massive departure from the other titles in the series but I guess it can't be judged on only a few minutes of footage.

I only hope that the Analog Stick Controls are better on 360 than in FEAR... Beacause that was what kept me from buying that game after playing the FEAR Demo.

I hope leaning is out of the game. I never used it and those buttons could be used for something else. But I could go for the pc version...

It looks like it's far more realistic than previous fear. And I sooo hope the control isn't lagged like on the 360. (I'll be getting it for ps3 though). I hereby allow any FPS to directly copy COD4's aiming-system. Period. :)

I'm just not impressed, not even a little bit. The whole time I was thinking 'Oh yeah, seen that before'. It looks just like an expansion, more of the same. Monolith really needs to clear their minds and come up with something original.

Not another time !!
I'm getting bored about FEAR !!

It's going to be lame ...

and while they're at it drop that nasty dated graphics engine.

It's gonna own, but it's pretty clearly only going to appeal to fans of the original.

Personally I can't wait to play it.

Leaning is pretty easy to implement without the use of extra buttons. Toggle crouch, and hold crouch for leaning using the movement analog.

STFU. Seriously. We get that people don't like the F.E.A.R. But here's the thing. it has physics, more then many games, it has crisp clean visuals without jagged edges or tearing. It plays buttery smooth for the most part. And pretty much EVERYTHING has is own distortion effect or colliding particle effects. The game also has pretty amazing AI and stuff, so please, knock it off. Nobody cares when idiots who don't know jack shit about game engines whine about them except people just like them. The previous F.E.A.R. game and expansions provided some of the most exhilarating game play in an FPS to date. I have no doubt that this will deliver an equally excellent experience.

FEAR was an awsome game for it's time (at least on PC) and had great graphics. But it had almost NO physics. It did have lots of particle effects. I think you are confusing physics with particle effects. But you have to admit that Project origin just looks like more of the same and that the graphics engine is getting out of date. If you want to see real dynamic physics, just look at Crysis or the upcoming Star Wars: the force unleashed.

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (59 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (1 Hour ago)
