I dont like this game at all. they go for the cheatp scare and the graphics and gameplay is real slugish. I played the multiplayer beta and would hope they fixed something since then..... nope.

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

so this is any good? i dont like nuvus's view..... i been waiting for this game for some time now.prehaps an interesting change to the non-stop battlefield 2 of the last few weeks? or is it really bad and not worth my time?

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

The only hint of atmosphere you get right at the start and it's not too bad, you get to see a shadow of the little girl pass in front of you and you can hear your own breathing which kinda builds it up. Shame there's not much more of that in the rest of the demo.

Well Doom 3 scared the living crap out of me, but i wonder if this can be as scray as Doom 3? Certeinly looks freaky. But the deamon's of D3 where by far the most terrifying enemy's in a game i have ever fought. THe only other game that was a scray as D3 was AVP 2, the marien capain. AHH! Nightmare induceing!

I liked it - reminded me of Half Life 2 - but with a bit more gory / scary stuff going on. Though the enemies jumping through windows thing got a bit tiresome, the firefights were pretty tough. I liked the supernatural paranormal elements, it genuinely freaked me out, they are truly aiming for that cinematic effect a la Matrix / The Ring etc and they are beginning to get there - I think the more of that the better - to take your mind on a trip, to veer away from the run-and-gun that it otherwise basically is. Performancewise, it got quite taxing on 1600x1200, we're gonna need an absolute monster of a rig to run this at the highest possible spec (max physics etc - I hope the Ageia chip will remedy this). Re Ronaldinho, the very end of the demo has a creepy conclusion to it - what did you think of that part? In between though, yeah it's just the same ole shoot-bad-guy. But all in all, pretty good.

I guess im looking at this game from a funny perspective. I dont see any of the good things you people are talking about. It doenst hold a candle to the graphics of Doom3 and doesnt even feel as real to life that Half Life 2 did. They just dont have a full game here. I dont care if they can do the slow motion scary cut scences like that of Max Payne where all I can do is walk around in slow mo as it tries to scare me. Then again I didnt like Far Cry and that was a " un " hit.

I think that I have to dissagree with Nuvus point about the graphics not being as good as Doom 3, I think the engine is great and at least on a par with Doom 3, OK - so the full dynamic lighting effect of Doom 3 isnt there but the detial and sharpness of the textures is, in fact I think they used higher res textures than in Doom3 (I know they didnt use textures in Doom3 but I dunno how else to quote it).Gameplay wise it is very reliant on the bullet time, otherwise its very hard to win a fight, and the AI is very basic, nowhere near fighting real people like they claim.The weapons are cool, shotgun and machine guns are the same old stuff, but the nailgun and railgun are nice to play around with - the railgun does a great job of burning the flesh off whatever you kill and it its pinpoint accurate too. A good addition is the bycicle kick and sliding tackle that are usually 1-hit-kills, send your enemies flying into the nearest wall with lethal force! They are easy to initialise with your melee button plus your crouch or jump button.I'll be buying the game, looks great, sounds great, plays better than Doom3 and feels almost as cool to play as Half Life 2

I agree about the end being very freaky but it didn't feel that much part of the gameplay. This could be my mistake because that was the end of the demo but it did feel very staged and kinda lost its effect on me. Having said that I really enjoyed seeing the girl just as I climbed on to the ladder to go down to the gangway. They used the gameplay weakness i.e. the delay in climbing on and off the ladder and created a "corner of the eye" freaky moment.

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

wow, seriously wicked. i played doom 3 for a while cuz of all the people saying it was the best and very scary and stuff, but it was all so predictable....it wasn't scary at all. f.e.a.r. on the other hand scared the s**t outta me at some points, its massive...the graphics are awesome...at some moments when you kill an enemy who is shooting at you he falls and still has his finger on the trigger and keeps on shooting in all directions for a sec or what, awesome.the AI is amazing, MUCH MUCH better than HL2 or any other game...its amazing how they hide, throw things on the ground to hide and work as a team against you. good stuff.the weapons are very kewl, gotta love the shotgun.its better than i expected it to be and i can't wait for the full version of this game.(and yes, the demo was a bit too short :( )

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

This demo blew away my expectations.The Gameplay is fantastic and the graphics are unequaled.Rather short but still a good tatse, I will defenitly buy this title ^_^

After playing DOOM3 and Half-Life2 this game just seemed like your every day average FPS. There is absolutely nothing new in this game that hasn't been done before. There isn't anything that stands out in this game except for its "graphics" which aren't even that spectacular. Half-Life 2 Models still are one of the best models to date. These models are to bland, not enough bump mapping, and still emotionless. The AI is weak. AI is always weak. I have yet to see a game that has as good of AI as the developer states. The levels are really bland (not much interaction). People claim atmosphere but for some reason I just didnt have it. When playing DOOM3 you always had that little thing in the back of your head that was screaming "WHATS NEXT JESUS CHRIST". In half-life 2 the atmospher was so rich you almost found yourself lost in the game, what you where playing could be fooled for real. I don't know, with all the hype there isn't anything new this game brings to the FPS genre and really is another hit or miss title.

The game is great (also reminded me at HL2), I like the quite little girl and the creepy sounds. And if is nothing in this game that hasn't been done before, is there an other game that puts it all together?I didn't like Doom3, to dark and no open spaces or what so ever. I was just shooting at something i could hardly see. And what is with not being able the have a flashlight on ur gun?? But that's just my opinion.

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

ok some1 tell me why it wont work...... i boot it up and all i get is a black screen, do i need to wait longer or something? i left it 3 - 4 minutes and nothing.... hd activity light didnt flash either.

U all are goin with the hype, this game is sooo lame! I mean if u can see ur own feet in FPS u know its gonna be s**t!! EEEEEUUUWW SCARY!! NO way!! Far Cry was scarier than this! Actually no it wasnt, but still if its MEANT to be scary then its doin a shoddy job of that!! GFX very poor considering i got 6800 with athlon FX2 under the hood. Shame, though I as gonna have a good time ayin it, waste of bandwidth!!

Then i got scared out of my wits.

ZOMG WTF!! - its lame in the beginning. The end is where it starts getting really funky, esp. the hallway (would freak the s**t out of most 12 year olds). In terms of cinematic quality, I'd say COD is more cinematic than this.I think MP (if there will be an MP) will be crap, also since the slow motion thing cant really work in MP.I dont think I'll buy this game, but I'll 'get' it via BT like most people. ROFLOLOLOLMAO!!!1

To: Anonymous v1.2at 21:52 6/8/2005The slow mode is in MP, It was in the open MP beta. When someone engages slow motion it effects all players, it actully worked quite well.

Well i just finished playing it for the second time. It ran a decent 40 fps on my FX 5600 256 mb. I had to keep a few things on medium and a few on maximum detail at max resolution.The game itself.WOW! absolutely amazong gameplay. The graphics id say doom 3 and hl2 still rule that department but maybe coz i didnt have evryting maxed out im still open on that part. I do realise that i need a new graphics card coz the rest of my pc is well above the requirements.There a re a few odd glitches oin the game. Like if you shoot the dudes jumping out of the helicopter while they r in the chopper blood stains STICK to the sky.might be a demo thing but itsd suck if it was in the real game. Also i think the AI is kinda scripted in the more ELABORATE things they do. I played it twice to the end and a couple of times ding in the middle somewhere and in one part the soldier ALWAYS throws down the metal shelf to either crawl under or tak cover behind it. Also i think the actaul game will run on a variety of systems.I mean doom 3 ran with hihg details on many older pcs smoothly so itd be a shame if this game wasnt optimised so.All in all definitly a game orht purchasing and i hope they work out these minor glitches.

I had never herd of fear until the weekend when I got the demo and I must say it was fun and feaky! I ran it full gfx quite nicely and the game looks nice, not as good as D3's but better than Hl2 (I dont see what people see with hl2's gfx apart from the character models).I'll buy this game, and I hope the full game will build on what has been shown in the demo because if it does it will be one hell of a game.

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

I played the demo when it first came out, and omg, wow i was glad i downloaded it. Reason? graphics where great, the ai was superb (i like when they jump threw the window to ambush u, that was really nice, all the people giving it negative view are stupid, the demo was quite short, so u cannot say this game will suck, cuz it's a better demo than some of those demos out there!!!! kthx

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

Still Buggy. i have to turn the sound off for it to work, and guess what? when it starts i somehow end up behind the car, and get stuck. WTF? anyone else has this problem?

F.E.A.R. SP Demo

BRILLIANT... i'll buy iti like how you give people with an older graphics card a chance to play it buy forcing dx8 in setting + if you have a beast of a pc THIS IS BETTER THAN HL2 & DOOM on the graphics front..whoever says it aint freaky... show me a fps that is more....8.9/10

As much as I agree with your review, the fact that you gave a rating too it is kind of retarded, and that you bothered to add a .9 to it, well its beyond me. I hereby declare you are banned from decimals when you rate games in the future. Leave the decimal system to people in the magazine industry, and just stick with whole numbers.

who said i don't write for pcgames mags.anyway i build wrongs & writes by my ./ system... if you don't like it... well to badp.s you don't trust someone who puts 10/10what would you rate it?
