Out right this minute, allot of retailers seem to be stocking it early despite itís Tuesday release date, heck, Iíve even seen it on the shelves at my local ASDA, and theyíre crap for selling the latest PC games. My copy was waiting for me this morning and first impressions are very good. If you liked the demo, youíll find little to disappoint with the full version.

The AI is top notch, the first time Iíve actually found myself being flanked by enemies, pinned down by their weapons, flushed out with grenades and even encircled by those I foolishly though just ran away to hide. It gives the action sequences a much more cinematic feel. The scary bits are plentiful too, the demo only gave a brief taste of these, there are many more in the full game, some of which only made me go Ďmehí others made me whimper like a little sissy.

Itís certainly not varied, if your not shooting things then you tend to be in dark, dingy corridors waiting for the next apparition to appear, but damn, itís fun, perhaps some of the most fun Iíve had with a FPS for a long while.

Using slo-mo to chuck a nade then set it off by shooting it is pretty fun too.

I guess you could do it without slo-mo but you'd need some 1337 skillz.

One thing fear has got down is the animation on the enemies, they move pretty well and smoothly, although when behind walls they keep leaving a leg visable meaning that they get bullets in it.

The slow-mo + nades is great when you throw one it bounces off the floor hits a wall, up in to the air and takes out 3 guys, just leaving legs and arms with a huge blood stain.

Yup. Now I've got to grips with the (glitchy) A.I., weapons and controls, there's not much of a challenge. Helps that I'm sober too.

I wish I'd just played the demo 5 or 6 times one after the other instead of paying for this now. :(

yeah scary bits nice, rest of game :(

I set it to hard and still not having to much trouble with enemies, i think the head hitboxes must be too big or they just stick them out too much as pistols still the quickest weapon for kills.

I'm starting to find this title incredibly dull. No variation in environments or enemies.

There's only so many times you can see the same disused office / warehouse corridor.

Hmm...

WoW still pwns.

As for FEAR, well, it looks good... But will my lowly 9600XT work well enough to make it worth my while?

I'm playing on hard and it's certainly no walkover. Excellent game too.

With this, Q4 (amazing art direction, simplistic gameplay, but FUN, something D3 was seriosly lacking in) and lost coast, my faith in none WoW game has been restored.

played a bit of this yesterday and although i'm only about an hour in to the game i have to say there hasn't been one challenging fight yet. I am only playing o the default difficulting but i expected the enemies to put up much more of a fight.

Most fights i have won using only a pistol as they seem to stick their heads out begging to die, 2 bullets tops to take out each guy.

Also if you run at them they seem to get confused and run out ni the open mang nice easy targets.

I might start over and set it a bit higher as like this the odd scary scene is all thats keeping me playing.
