If you are an old school Fear Effect fan it'll be obvious the developers are too, but despite the changes this is no better than either of the PlayStation originals.

A powerful blend of bugs and poor design make every moment of this game a chore

Fear Effect Sedna shows that the developer truly knows its source material inside out, but unfortunately the gameplay aspect remains lost. With poor voice-acting, a broken, almost unnecessary tactical system, unreliable A.I., and flat action, Sedna just isn't fun or compelling.

Fear Effect Sedna brings back from the past the core elements of the series, with a nice story that manages to drag the player into it.

Despite not highlighting either its combat or stealth mechanics, Fear Effect Sedna is a pretty satisfactory resurrection of a franchise that we believed dead by its puzzles, plot and characters.

A tedious slog that sullies the legacy of its vaunted predecessors.

I wish the return of Fear Effect would have been something to celebrate. Unfortunately, it ends up being a mediocre attempt to revive the franchise.

Fear Effect Sedna is proof creativity can't always overcome poor execution. The game is often quite enjoyable, but the inspired moments can be difficult to appreciate amidst Sedna's mishandled nostalgia, ill-considered mechanics, and sometimes-wonky level design. Those willing to ride out the rough patches (or just hungry from some early-2000s cheese) may want to give the game a try, but I'm afraid I don't see this being the Fear Effect franchise's big comeback.
