Fear Effect Sedna
Top Critic Average
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.
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.

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.

A tedious slog that sullies the legacy of its vaunted predecessors.
Fear Effect Sedna is a bad game. Sadly, I wanted to love it simply because of my misplaced nostalgia for the original two titles.
Fear Effect Sedna features nice and well-made animated cutscenes, strange and sometimes completely annoying puzzles, and barren gameplay with terrible controls, especially during boss fights.

Fear Effect Sedna is sort of an interesting artifact; a game out of its own time. If only playing it was any fun.
Fear Effect Sedna is one of those games that were I not reviewing it, I'd have stopped playing very early on. Its few redeeming qualities actually fail to redeem it at all; it's simply not a very good video game, one that could only be satisfactory to the most eager of Fear Effect fans. For everyone else, it's impossible to recommend.
