Does this imply some other company is going to be making a FEAR 2 like OFP2 and FarCry 2?
I liked the first one. It had good AI and the effects made the gunfights ridiculous, and the horror, "boo!" stuff was better than most. It did have its problems though, the repetitive levels, the sort of goofy story. It probably would have been better as a straight action-shooter without all of the supernatural stuff.
Monolith is a pretty good outfit. Minus a couple misfires, they've been making some of the best fps games since the mid nineties. I also appreciate the fact that after BUILD, they've been rolling their own engines rather than using the off-the-shelf stuff that makes too many FPSes the same games with different graphics.
