FEAR's combat & AI system is simply amazing. i still cant see a game that can beat it! i mean when engaging the squads in FEAR i feel like i'm at real situation not just a game.
i even got flanked a couple of times when i was looking at a certain side while enemy was actually approching me from the other side.

Did you guys even read me coment? I wish I could feel about the AI like you guys, really, its just that I cant.
Sure itsthe best AI so far, but they are still stupid. No rethinking, no weapons tactics, just shotgun for me and spray them all to death...

Food for thought, although I can't say I ever once got the Half-Life 'vibe' in any way while playing F.E.A.R..

Far Cry, on the other hand, reminded me of HL greatly.

Considering the Doom1 and HL1 stories were practically identical [save the goverment conspiracy part] should we consider FEAR a sequal to D1 as well?

Interesting replies so far, thanks everyone.

I'm going to listen out for that 'fire in the hole' in my second run through the game!

Oh i wasn't saying it makes a better literal sequel, as in story-wise, but in the combat/gameplay and i guess atmospheric sense too.

nice point about farcry, that also had excellent AI, although it was more an outdoor wide open spaces style of gameplay, and the AI didn't really work as squads that i remember, although they could alert each other... and i beat that game on the hardest setting so i'd have noticed! hehe.

I'm really surprised the vote is so close, i wasn't expecting many people to agree at all, so good stuff.
