Summary: FEAR is a good, not great, game. It suffers from a kind of triage - it seems that the developers did not have the resources to make every aspect of the game great, so rather than making everything just ok, they decided to allocate all of their resources to certain parts of the game.
Summary: I am a FPS player almost exclusively and I have been since Doom and Duke Nukum. The game itself definitely kept me wanting to play and kept my interest but some of the breakaway and flashbacks left me with a "could you hurry up" mentality.
Summary: I've heard tons of ranting and raving about this game, and tried to read some spoiler-free reviews on here to give me the scoop about this game. Based on that I opted to go to Wallyworld last night and plunk down my hard-earned $30 to see what all the hooplah is about.
Summary: Graphics + Sports some top-of-the-line graphics. The models are incredible at the highest of settings. The explosions are intense and visceral, destroying everything around them (including turning enemies into mulch).
Summary: The Good: Graphics, sound effects... all well done. The story is good. Great, even, if not compared to HL2. The array of weaponry and the slow-motion fighting - that you control - makes the game very cool. Certainly, one of the best FPS to come out in some time. The AI is fantastic.
Summary: Wow! I just finished this game a few minutes ago and my body STILL feels a bit chilled! I have to say that I was really impressed with this game, especially the ending. As for everything else, I'll break those down below: GRAPHICS: 4/5 STARS.
Summary: This game overall is an excellent action/shooter. I truly enjoyed the plot and gameplay of it. The controls are very customizable and easy to use. Though the plot is somewhat confusing, I think it has a great originality to it. The graphics are excellent as are the game physics and AI.
Summary: The good: A.I: Even though somewhat scripted, is the best seen in FPSs. Enemies can react in realtime to your movements, and your shots/flashlight. Enemies will also use the environment: knocking over tables or jumping through windows for cover.
Summary: Installation was time consuming but went smoothly on a Dell Inspiron 9300 with Win Media Center Edition, but the game pauses slightly, periodically making me wait briefly for the game to catch up. The theme and game play are reminiscent of Half-Life.
Summary: Graphics: Astounding. Although, honostly, I'm not sure how many people will get to run it full-throttle. I have a brand new Alienware, top of the line, dual video cards (PCI-Express / SLI), etc, and there were still a couple places in the game where it was choppy.
