look at movies, 20 so bucks (more for HD) for about 90-140 minutes or non interactive entertaiment.
The last movie I bought was in 1998 and it wasn't really a movie, but an IMAX movie converted to DVD. It was called Super Speedway. So yeah, I don't buy movies because they are $20+. Netflix is better.

There is a way to play this game without Steam. You just gotta go digging.

Wonder how hard it would be to add better shadows to a PC version if they create a baseline version for consoles. I always thought it was not that hard work, just expensive in terms of performance. But then again maybe the engine is changed not allowing it so easy. Or I'm wrong about it being fairly easy.

After a couple of hours of gameplay, I have to say that in my opinion Project Origin captures the original games feel very well and plays fantastic. I'd give it a 9/10.

At first the HUD was weird, but I got used to it when I realized the character you play is wearing some sort of visor/glasses thing. The grainy effect was weird at first too, but I also got used to it quickly.

The environment is cool and the colors are better than the original. AI seems better and I've noticed some pretty funny things. For instance...that name on some of the wine bottles, you have to check it out. Also the bad guys say some funny stuff when you go SlowMo on them and charge them.

Overall the game is great!

I can confirm that the Grain Filter mod from the demo also works with the retail.

So true

That looks like a design compromise unfortunately. I doubt we will ever see a patch to fix it. I'd bet there wouldn't be any way the game could run on a PS3 or XB360 if they did the dynamic lighting as it was in FEAR1 with today's poly counts and textures.

FEAR concentrated on particle effects and shadows, but their base level design was crap. FEAR 2 has much better level design and art design... the shadows look great if you don't inspect them like in that video, and on the whole the game looks much more impressive.
