Bargain Hunter: There Is Nothing To Fear With This Deal

Bargain Hunter: There Is Nothing To Fear With This Deal

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a really solid shooter with a nice mix of challening encounters and creepy atmospherics. It’s easily worth the 40 bucks JB Hi-Fi is currently flogging it for.

Actually, make that less than 40 bucks. Or $39, to be precise, on both PS3 and 360. Good timing, too, with the new DLC bringing four new single-player levels in just a couple of weeks.

JB also has Saints Row 2 for $39 and the Guitar Hero World Tour complet bundle for $199. Decent deals, both of them.

If you’ve spotted any good gaming deals, let the Bargain Hunter know now via the usual address.


  • For $40 this is an absolute bargain. I loved F.E.A.R 2 and recommend it to any FPS lovers, particularly those that liked F.E.A.R.

    Although I kind of felt violated at the end, but I don’t want to spoil anything 😉

  • i’ve got Fear 2, still in the shrink wrap from months ago when BigW were selling it for $68, does the story matter all that much? or rather, should i have finished FEAR and it’s expansions before playing this one?

    • You definately don’t have to finish the expansions (1 wasn’t even done by the original devs). But if you finish F.E.A.R you’ll have a better understanding of what’s going on. Having said that, you should be able to pick it up as you go along in F.E.A.R 2. I’m pretty sure most of the back story is in there.

  • Been meaning to get Saints Row 2 – i cannot believe i haven’t purchased that solid piece of Gold yet. After i actually laughed at GTA IV i needed some sort of entertainment.

  • Question:

    I wasnt a big fan of FEAR when it first appeared on the PS3. In fact I took it back the next day. I dont know whether it was because it didnt feel right on the PS3 considering it was a solid PC shooter, or that I wasnt getting into it.

    Anyway, my question is – is FEAR 2 good enough to buy if I didnt like the first one?

  • No deal for the PC crowd ?
    Jb is ussually so good to us. This is a particular shame through, as like DansDans said, it’s really a PC shooter at heart.

  • All shooters are PC shooters at heart. FPS on console = lol. Hey guys lets waggle these sticks a bit while mashing buttons and let auto aim take care of the rest!

  • i got fear 2 a couple of days ago at jb for $39 and dont regret a cent very solid shooter, at that price u definitely get your moneys worth.

  • Oi guys,

    Eb games got a good pre-owned sale goin on at the moment. buy 2 get 1 free, this was crap, but after they dropped KZ2 pre-owned price to $65, this made it a lot better.

    KZ2 $65 + Condemned 2 $28 and free Resistance 2.

    I just bought myself these 3 epic games (well 2 at least) for just $93! That’s like $30 per game!!!

    • Sorry guys, this was wrong… eb games 2 for 1 sale is CRAP! they want you to buy the 2 most expensive games… its ridiculous!
