Anyone else playing the FEAR demos? The multiplayer demo was just released and it's a blast. The single player demo has been out for a while now and it's great as well. Graphically, it stacks up with Doom3 and Half Life 2, the physics are also incredible. In the single player demo you get trapped in this firefight in a hallway and crap goes flying everywhere as bullets hit it and clouds of dust are kicked up from rounds impacting with the walls, it's intense. The few minutes of the single player player demo are also some of the creepiest gaming since Doom 3. You hear your own characters breathing and heartbeat, weird shadows dance along the walls and strange figures go running by. It's great.

The AI is the best I've seen since Far Cry on the realistic level. They're agressive and they'll work in teams to try and outflank you. They'll radio ahead to other areas to be on alert and call for backup.

There are also a few other nice touches such as throwing a grenade. It's not an instant affair like in every other FPS. Your character will need a moment to ready the grenade and set up his throw before actually releasing it. When it comes to going up and down ladders, there is similar detail thought out. You don't just levitate up and down the ladders like a lot of other games, when you go up to a ladder, it'll take a moment to secure your weapon and then you'll go up the ladder in a very realistic climbing manner, it'll take another moment to ready your weapon after getting to the top/bottom. It's nice touches like this that really polish the gameplay.
