Hope this hasnt been covered already. Man it is a bad score.
Here is some of what they had to say.
A robot suit and quick-time events.
If you grabbed me in a bar and asked me what was memorably new in FEAR 2 (I'm not using the bloody full stops), that's all I'd be able to come up with. While it's a rock-solid corridor shooter, the lasting impression is one of a woeful lack of inspiration. There's plenty of stuff to talk about but nothing that demands to be discussed over a drink with friends. The most interesting thing about FEAR 2 is the history of its development - Monolith's split with Vivendi, leaving the former without the name, working on a game with the key cast, propagating another title ("Project Origin"), buying the name back when it seemed Vivendi didn't want to make a sequel after all and... Oh, it's quite the epic, exciting saga. Unlike this.
With the two semi-sequels to the first game, made by other developers, removed from continuity, FEAR 2 itself picks up slightly before Monolith left off. You explore an alternate part of the world as another FEAR team, and see the conclusion of the first (a big old explosion) from a distance. In theory, it's a clever method of setting up the devastated city and getting the new gamer up to speed. In practice, it's not totally effective.
Full thing here.
