Part one of my event in London back a few weeks ago starts with FEAR 2: Project Origin, which hits shelves this Friday (13th) for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

After waiting for all the other journalists from other sites and magazines to arrive in the bar, we were then all moved into a private cinema room, which the 4 presentations from Warner Bro’s and the four games developers each took turns to show us their game and what makes it so original, complete with game play videos and demos.

Many of you, who have perhaps my hands on with the multiplayer side of the game will know the game is already looking to be a special game for this part of the year. The majority of you will also have played the demo out on the marketplace or Network and already have a good general idea of the single player side.

For those of you that don’t, if you’re familiar with FPS games, then FEAR 2 doesn’t really offer much out of the ordinary of First Person Shooters. It doesn’t bring cutting edge new ways to that kind of game play, but what it does do well, is show how much better looking Fear 2 can be, and finally continues the story of Alma, the troubled girl who’s vengeance will put you into a world of horror.

With the presentation came the details which people may miss whilst taking the demo out for a try, including being able to move key objects to form new positions of cover, allowing both you AND the enemies to change the environment to allow some hot gunplay action, combine that with your slow motion ability and you’ll get the drop on them in no time.

The game will also cut-up the game play from gunning down enemies with conventional guns, to letting you climb into a giant Mech armour, and then gun down some more enemies in that, but not without letting you bring down half the scenery along with it! Not to mention, mix that all up with some moments to really make you jump out of your seat scared and were onto a winner, surely?

Fear 2: Project Origin is out for Xbox 360/PS3 on Friday 13th 09.

Don’t miss part 2 of my Warner Bro’s event where I go into detail on the upcoming Watchmen series and the two shooters Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator: Salvation. Which will be coming very soon.

Check back in the next few weeks for the full review of Fear 2.
