Found this while searching Amazon to see if they would match Gamestop's deals on the console versions. Just wondering if I should pull the trigger on this since I was hoping for better graphics on PC but from the reviews I've briefly glanced at, it sounds like a console port. Any thoughts?

there is a 3rd party seller with 100% feedback listing it for a few dollars less total.

Yup, looks good. Be sure to buy this game new. It needs to be activated via STEAM. Even retail copies so if it's used it may already have been activated by a previous owner.

Not bad, but I'll wait for GoGamer.com to drop it to $15 or less (like they always do).

Well, if you're not planning on purchasing anything else, you could always get it via Newegg for the same $23.99 price, but with free shipping:

With Amazon, I know you need to spend $25 or more for free shipping. As for if it's worth it, well...I've heard it's not as good as the first game. It's decent, but nothing great. I'm probably also going to wait for it to be either 75% off via Steam (since you need to activate the retail version through Steam anyways, it's the same thing), or wait until it's $15 or less at Newegg or through another site or store.

WARNING: Fear 2 requires you register your key with Steam. It's really some amazing BS.

Eh... not really a big deal. Steam is flexible enough for DRM... it's probably the only form of DRM that I don't mind.

It's only BS if you're a software pirate.

Or you ever hope to make $10 off your copy later on when you finish it.

Ignorance, ignorance, ignorance... Software pirates get the pirated version which has the DRM removed. DRM only hurts paying customers.

After activating it through STEAM, would you be able to play it offline without having to connect to STEAM? I heard that even the single mode has to be connected to STEAM in order to play so if you are on the go, tough luck, is this true?

Anyone know this answer? Before I purchase.
