The first 10 minutes : F.E.A.R.

The first 10 minutes : F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. has been released quite some time ago on PC and was a really impressive game back then, and running it with full details required quite the monster machine. The Xbox 360 version, done by Day 1 Studios, is really well done, retaining all the graphical qualities of the PC version with an excellent frame rate most of the time. If you never played the PC version, or if you played it without all the details, now is the time to finally play this excellent if repetitive FPS. The graphics and the AI are still top notch, and the atmosphere as scary as ever.

It definitely was one hell of an experience playing F.E.A.R, sucks that it got overshadowed by the almighty hypes of GOW and COD 3.

Nevertheless, if you haven't yet played F.E.A.R, you owe it to your self to at least try it.

Is there anything additional in the 360 version at all? Also how is the online play?

There is one bonus level, but it's not interesting.
The online play is quite good, nothing out of the ordinary but it works well.

@ Slabs, well in IGN previews they said that the 'expansion' is already in this one. (or I'm confusing it with Half-Life 2x360

    GriftGFX Then you start getting into proprietary software hell and potentially preventing other developers from writing innovative software solutions themselves. It's a WEIRD idea. (38 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX and game engine graphics pipelines or even programming interfaces for their products. None of that is their role in the whole thing.. and it shouldn't be. (38 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Nvidia and AMD already do help developers with optimization more than they should have to. Nvidia and AMD should be improving the hardware and driver end of the technology and not worrying (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Nvidia and AMD don't even provide the API for their graphics cards. That would be the next layer between the developer and the video card. DirectX. (39 minutes ago)
