    It's out and I just got mine in the mail today. I was only able to play for about an hour (had to go to school and work) but from what I played it was really awesome. Mine came with the bonus Beta Multiplayer thing, not sure if i'll play...so anyway, discuss this game!

    Please use spoiler tags if you reveal plot!

    Hoping to get this game soon, played the demo and it rocked.
    i think i'm getting too rusty on FPS, hope the game wont be that difficult to me, the AI seemed very agressive.

    It is very very smart. Usually the AI just walks right up to you shooting which makes them easy targets. These AI run and hide or attempt to ambush you. They'll even make cover for themselves or fake death and crawl to another location and start shooting again. Some of these guys are real bitches to kill. Especially the stealth ninjas. The AI is definitely the best I've played against.

    This game is one hell of a system hog. I need to upgrade both my RAM and the graphic card to play this game.

    The game looks stunning with the latest graphic engine, this game tops the best FPS genre so far right now.

    this one dude, I got with a shot gun. He fell down from the blast, and started to crawl under some pipes. When he got to the other side, he got back up and started shooting at me again. I was really impressed.

    I've been wanting to get this game since I saw the trailers months ago.

    How intense are the graphics? My video card can't even run Call of Duty (yet can somehow play WoW), so I imagine F.E.A.R. will annihilate it.

    This game is on my list, but i wont buy it yet. Maybe after i come back from Greece and have some money then ill buy it.

    The game indeed requires atleast a good video card to run decent.

    You need a good card. They reccomend you have a 256MB graphics card to run this and a gig of ram.

    sorry but this game does not compare to half life 2. Fears ending blows just to let u all know. On latest graphics engine? they are using Doom3's engine. nothnig really new about it.


    the game was good but from playing half life 2 i still say half life 2 is the best FPS out their on PC and most likely the best over all so far.

    I dont agree but you have your own opinion. The physics of FEAR are way way more realistic than that of HL2. Are you trying to say that the HL2 engine is more recent than that of doom3? Please, thts totally wrong.

    consiering the maker or doom 3 said that half life 2 's engine/ game was more superior than doom 3 yes.


    Phyisc's in half life 2 are better than fears and half life 2 also makes u feel like ur acculy playing that charcter more so than FEAR.

    I know FEAR is good but its not as good as half life 2's.


    plus with the New HDR and lighting in half life 2;s engine makes it even better.


    Half life 2 is more realistic than FEAR.. Its easy to tell.

    Go there and check if your PC can manage to run it.



    It says I pass, but I doubt my PC can play high setting of F.E.A.R. Since my comp was laggy as hell when I played the demo.

    I've been playing since yesterday. This game is awesome.

    Though I can't play for more than an hour at a time. Fear gets to me and I get stressed out but the tension. I love the mixture of action and horror. This game is way scarier than Doom 3 in my opinion.

    That little girl is freaky.

    All in all a great game. I love being able to pretty much run it on highest settings. The graphics are amazing.

    I won't be able to get this one anytime soon. I am awaiting Soul Calibur 3. I have heard this game is the shiznack and I hope I can grab this by my friend. I loved the little mod of this with them joking around and they were all talking about how much momeny they get and how they are corrupt. While they are talking some of the squad members are being killed.

    No, they said the source engine was the best of old tech. Half-Life 2 doesn't even have dynamic shadows which puts it way behind FEAR and Doom 3 from a tech standpoint. Get your facts right.

    I've actually played the demo like a month ago. It looked like a well done game. It reminded me of a combination between Halo and Half-Life. I would buy it but I don't have the money.:sweat

    WTF does High Dynamic Range lighting have to do with dynamic shadows. HDR just makes dark vs light areas look better. The shadows are still static like in any old Quake3 engine game. All the shadows are set in every level and are unaffected by light sources.

    Well as far as A.I go, it is deffinately the best I have delt with, nothing like having your own opposition sneak up behind you and cap you from behind. Some time it leaves you wondering how they hell they got there so fast.

    We need more A.I such as this.
