    I can’t believe Spore is that popular…

    The demo of FEAR 2 was a success, and the game feels so polished that it’s no wonder that it sells so well. Even I got a copy of it.

    Fear 2 caught me completely by surprise. I never heard of the first game and the sequel wasn’t on my radar at all; I only downloaded the demo from the PSN because it was free. It sat untried on my HDD until yesterday when I gave it a go. And I fucking loved it. I never thought a video game could be scary and that atmospheric. Bought it online five minutes after I finished the demo.

    For me, this is an excellent example of how a good demo can sell a game – especially to someone new to the IP.

    Looking at the reviews now, I see lots of complaints that it is not as revolutionary as its predecessor, is not as big a step in graphics as the first game, and offers little new in terms of gameplay. My response is this: why does *everything* have to be new or revolutionary? Is it not enough that a game does what it does well, and entertains? And it has a Metacritic score of 82 which is good enough for me.
