It has to be bull****, I just looked over the PCgamer forums and there is not one mention of it, nor is there any mention of that issue yet on the site.

^LOL.

If the FEAR demo was any indication for the final version, than I have to say I am deeply dissapointed. The AI was not that great, it was more funny - waiting for that guy to crawl beneath that bookshelves he knocked.

Creepy enviros? Play SH and you'll get to see whats scary enviros are. That bloody hallway was like "what the hell does that have to do with this?".
The demo sucked. But maybe I'll love the final game, who knows?

For those who do not know, the score is a fake. The link the OP goes to was just a joke.

Wtf looks like that guy was right all along. Just saw this at evilavatar.com


Quake 4 - 70% in PC Gamer

Final Verdict:

Highs - Loads of action; gruesome visuals; Q3DM17 with Doom 3 graphics

Lows - Uninspired gameplay; Stroggification plot twist goes nowhere; no multiplayer bots.

Bottom line - This old-school shooter suffers from a lack of 21st-century game design.

NO BOTS ??? WTF....

Yep saw it in a couple of forums, seems to be legit or he was just really lucky. If anybody has scans I'd be happy to observe them.

Damn! That sucks.

BTW, have you guys noticed that quake4 isn't getting much hype at all? I am seeing way more hype for FEAR.

By that I mean advertising and stuff.

Oh well, I'm gonna buy both, and I know I'm gonna like both. Just a little dissapointing. Its not usual for PCGamer to rate a huge title like this that low.

Rightly so, the single player was boring, the ending was pathetic The chase scene at the start with the truck was laughable, most of the novelty was blowing limbs off but that didn't hold me for very long. Overall it was just mediocre, I'm sure mp fanatics will disagree but I never got into mp for SOF2.

Yup... I loved SOF and rushed out and bought SOF2 and hated it... it was too boring and was nothing like the first.

Who cares about hype for a well-known game ??
besides .. since when hype was an important factor to rate games or tell how good are they ?
Mafia & Riddick didnt get much hype if any at all .. were they bad at the end ?
