Managed to get my hands on a copy a few days early and all I can say is wow, what an amazing gaming experience. The demo was just a very small taste of things to come. Everything about the game is just incredibly polished and it is downright CREEPY! Doom 3 ain't got nothing on this game. I've just played a few minutes of the opening level so far and I've got goose bumps from sitting in a darkened room with my headphones on.

A lot of the tricks are standard horror fare but boy do they work well. Doors mysteriously slam shut, strange figures walk around and disappear into the shadows, things fly off of shelves, faint ghostly voices are in the background, smoke seems to take on vaguely human forms in an amazingly creepy effect. The execution is just great and the amazing graphics are enough to suspend your disbelief and really put you into the game. Interactive horror movie would be an appropriate way to describe it.

But take away the supernatural aspect of the game and you still have a first rate shooter with top notch graphics and great gameplay. The AI is so good it's scary. Really, you've never seen AI this good. It's an amazing achievement that has to be seen to be believed. Everyone get your copies October 18th!

Your partner. He doesn't like you much.

Check out the nice heat distortion effect.

That's one big rat.

This guy is bad news. And that's going to leave a mark.

Assigned to protect you.

Useful tip, the fire extinguishers explode very nicely.

This guy didn't die a peaceful death.

I think I'll let them go first.

Have you seen my stapler?

Game's still not officially out yet and there's already a patch for it ;P ;f . 1.01 is primarily a multiplayer patch and it's a 21MB download.

that dude with the 2X4 almost made me piss my pants. I sat there with all the eerie music and said to myself....WTF have I gotten myself into now?

What a cliffhanger ending! Without giving away anything all I can say is I can't wait for FEAR 2. Now I just have more questions than answers.

It was an interesting ending. At one or two points in the game, I actually had goose bumps;P ;P
