    First. Encounter. Assualt. Recon.

    Let me say if you havent DL'd the single player demo yet YOU MUST!!! The graphics are completely awsome, right up there with HL2. Trully the way the shaders are used is quite unbelivable and makes for one of the most realistic games I have ever seen.

    And the scare factor is right there from the first 3 minutes of the demo. When you try this game, play it at night, with no one around, and all the lights off!!!

    It will scare the SH@% out of you :D

    Here is a link to the free DL from Sierra

    http://www.sierra.com/downloadfile.do?gamePlatformId=1833&mediaid=15208

    Also just so you know...dont even try running this demo unless you have a P4 or better and a 128 meg card :D

    Also if you are a subcriber to any pay sites like Fileplanet, or Gamestop you might want to try those ass well. I know that Fileplanet has the demo for you subcribers out there.

    Have fun guys 8)

    yeah I'm going to pre-oreder at work today, so I can try out the beta. How many TOGs do we have in the beta currently?

    Would be cool to meet up with a few for some fun 8)

    I was in the first test... server still operational. I think I have to pre-order to get into the second. I'll look into it!

    yeah Ned if you go here:

    www.feargamebeta.com

    you can see they have extended the beta till September 15th. But I got this info and addy from the pre-order box so I assume that you will have to pre-order to contunue.

    Unfortunatly I guess they have removed the buddy key system as I was going to give away 5 entries here for you guys, but I guess thats not possible now :(

    Let me know if any of you get plan to get in the beta 8)

    Thanks oldskool, I just had to have a look at the link just in case it was available without pre-ordering. You'll need the CD Key provided in the pre-order to play the beta. :cry:

    Oh well, I'll just have to wait I guess. :lol:

    why cant you pre-order mayday? You have EB games over there, its only $5 dollors over here for pre-orders and that will get you entry.

    Does it work similar over there?

    I'm not a big fan of pre-ordering games mate. Dunno, just something about trusting a game company or something even if the demo was spectacular :lol:

    I still may yet, don't have enough time to play as it is atm though. :roll:

    Indeed, the FEAR demo was very cool. The enemies had some interesting AI (like the time the dude comes down the stairs behind you), though at other times they were stupid, following predictable patterns, allowing me to shoot them at my whim.

    The graphics were nice, though it, like many of the current games, suffers for an over use of shine on too many things. Its not terrible, but I still like D3's engine better, even though the game itself sucks.

    The atmosphere is nice and creepy. Where the dude is right there at the bottom of the ladder had me jump a little bit. :) It will be interesting to see if they can hold the horror tension throughout the game, as it will be broken up with heavy combat.

    I am looking forward to the multiplayer demo, even though the public beta didn't wow me much at all. I'll just keep my fingers crossed.
