Monolith Productions has done one satisfying deal again. F.E.A.R., one of the best games that ever came into mind has come with Project Origin, the apt sequel to the gripping suspense game. Just like the previous game, Project Origin continues the story of Alma, a girl with psychic abilities. She has innumerable powers which she uses against people who have done her wrong. This causes an ultimate disaster for the people around her, as it escalates into a crisis which is paranormal in nature, threatening to replace what is real with her own concept of reality. The previous F.E.A.R allows one to play as the Point Man, who wears a uniform that completely hides his face from view. This time around, Project Origin features the character Michael Becket, who works as a Delta Force operator. This new character, will receive a reflex power just like the previous protagonist because of undergoing a surgery.
The story of Project Origin promises to have more thrilling excitement where the previous game has taken off. A lot of questions which has been left unanswered in the previous game will be dealt with in Project Origin. Furthermore, the kinetic gunplay present in the previous installment will be added with an extra hype in this sequel. Lead designer of the game, John Mulkey affirms that every action that the previous game has will be included in this sequel, but with an added twist and suspense. The narrative, which was quite blurry in the first game, will now be further developed without sacrificing the mystery that the story promises. (more…)
