GC06: F.E.A.R. Gameplay

GC06: F.E.A.R. Gameplay

We're still walking around the MS booth, where I shot this complete video of the F.E.A.R. demo. Those who've already done the PC demo shouldn feel like home. Anyway, the framerate is absolutely flawless.

HDR certainly looks good. Any idea of the changes to the single player game? I completed it on the PC but it was a very tedious experience towards the end.

I thought the console versions had exclusive content or something? I'll strike it off my rental list if not then.

This version has some new content I think, and better graphics that the PC version according to the developer.

It says complete video of the demo but cuts off in the middle of a fight...and no sound :(. Oh well still looks good.

The demo stops after the big guy dies. And it has no sound because you can't hear sound when you're filming a game on a friggin' showfloor.

I read somewhere that each next-gen playtform will have its own bonus-level including different characters. Levels are linked together by story.

the 360 version has new content, an instant action mode where basically shed loads of enemies keep coming at you etc

back to the video i wasnt really interested in this before (havnt played the pc version) but after seeing thre video it looks so much better in motion than the screenshots suggest, the particle effects especially look great

i fear (hehe) it`s not HDR but rather the white balance of the camcorder trying to keep up with the light/dark changes on screen ;)

Actually, I was trying to get the right preset. That's why the image is burnt at the beginning.

I thought the lighting was great...but what do I know!?

Did they mention anything about the Demo release?

Not that I know about.

goes anyone know at how many frames this came is runing at?

Probably a solid 30fps. It looks nice and all, but I'll have to play the demo before I judge. The (now its fake) list said the demo should've come out yesterday, but it didn't. So there's no news of a demo otherwise.
Commented on 2006-08-26 19:20:59
very cool video. i know theres a demo out and i haven't played it so its nice to see this.
Commented on 2006-08-26 19:26:41
Im actually glad its just a straight port. Too many developers try to change console FPS ports to much and usually that means dumbing the game down for console gamers. (BF2, CS, Unreal) Just to name a few.

The fear demo has bad framerate so I wouldn't use it to judge the final 360 title.

hmmm actually the FREAR demo runs LOCKED 30 and with v synch and AA. so what demo are u talking about?

yeah my year old PC runs it faster and it even looks better, but it certianly isnt BAD on 360. its just fine and the framerate is locked. next.

looks awesome. HDR looks fantastic. when the final version comes out i'd like to see a side-by-side screenshot comparison of certain parts of the PC and 360 versions.
