Doom3 wasnt about the AI. And for environments.. I surely hope you've played to see the hell levels! When i saw those I knew that doom3 would be one of my favorite games of all time. FEAR is nice with it's "run through office complexes killing s**t yay" but I thought the MP was much more fun/exciting. I wasnt even slightly scared by the demo. Maybe "spooky" would be a better word for this game (especially at the system requirements hehe). Peace,

I played the fear single player demo, but only to where I ran into a few enemy guys in one building. I don't know, but I didn't really like it. Some spooky parts seemed ok tho. I don't know, I guess Ill have to play more of the demo and see if it improves.

Would also have to change the controls somewhat, because the default ones seem weird except for wasd and mouse settings.

I must say... I agree with you on the cheap tricks thing but I don't agree on the AI. They are monsters and zombies, they aren't supposed to be highly trained in hand to hand combat and other combat situations. They're friggin monsters!

Well, I just went and put in my preorder for the $54.99 Director's Cut Edition! Since playing the MP demo on my new rig (7800GT + FEAR = :drool: ), it's gotten me completely wanting to play the SP portion. Hope it's worth the hype!!!!!

Something just got to me, I think maybe it was how I timed through the game. Like right at the beginning, down your first set of ladders, I went to pick up the amo/health thing in the corner, turned around and there is a little girl running across my path giggling. I've watched 3 people play through the demo since and that didn't happen to any of them. The way the breahting speeds up creates genuine panick, its well done.

That's the first time I saw that little girl also.
I wasn't expecting it as I turned around I just got a glimpse of her and heard the giggling, I couldn't climb up that ladder quick enough.

Yea my heart completely stopped when that happened...

Only time that has ever happened to me in a game before was in Doom 3 when you look in the mirror.

Freaky stuff
