Fear Effect Sedna has suffered from an internal conflict over whether to stay true to the originals or start over. There is an authenticity in approach that lifelong Fear Effect fans will no doubt appreciate, but, taking a step back to look at the game as a whole, even they may come to lament the many flaws that it is riddled with. It’s a shame, therefore, that it can’t outrun its demons.
Fear Effect Sedna is largely relying on nostalgia to sell itself, and for someone who has no interest in the series, there is little reason to get involved now. Even fans are going to have to slog through it to some extent, and the game's frustrating and generally clunky execution makes it a hard sell to anyone, regardless of platform or their relationship with the Fear Effects of old.
The story is disjointed, the dialog stilted, and the characters feel like cutouts. But all that could be forgiven if it were fun to play, but it isn’t. Bad puzzles, repetitive combat, and poorly designed encounters are constant companions. I respect the desire and the work that must have gone into making this revival a reality. I just wish the product would have been better for long-suffering fans.
