Summary: I should be honest and state that I have not purchased this game but was planning to do so until I read the reviews and realized that STEAM was required. I was taken by that scheme (scam) before but never again.
Pros: It's F.E.A.R. and the earlier versions were fantastic.
STEAM = CONTROL FREAKS - stay away from any steam games

Summary: This is how it is: I would potentially rate the game if I could play it. Since I purchased it used, it was already activated to a Steam account. The Steam account is required to install the game. I tried to get Steam to transfer the CD Key to my already present account but was told no.

Summary: Wait until it hits the budget rack. And by the looks of things it won't be long.
Pros: It's a good looking game. That's it.
Cons: This is a straight console port to PC. It is short. No quick save. No lean left/right. No multi monitor resolution support. No dedicated server files, anti-cheat for multi-player = no replay value. STEAM activated. Your key # is registered w/STEAM. In a nut shell that means that not only can you ...
Summary: I thought the game sucked. It was about 20-30 hours of gameplay, not very challenging or imaginative. Very linear. This was simply a game drop to play on a immense success of the prior FEAR's. If you must play, wait a month, the price will drop fast.
Cons: STEAM. I purchased games with steam and it is a total Infringement of your freedom. Also two of the steam games I bought myself would never authorize correctly on my 64 bit system. This might be fixed but I will never again purchase any game no matter how good it is if it has STEAM.
Summary: I had planned to purchase this game before I found out that it forces you to install STEAM on your PC to activate the game. If you are not sure what STEAM is, feel free to do a look on Wiki as they have a good write-up on it.
Cons: Tried downloading the demo, but it was plagued with issues -- no sound, no video on many systems.
